Actress Emmanuelle Vaugier hosts The Fluffball™ charity event to raise money for Forgotten Horses Rescue, Inc.

When I first heard about Forgotten Horses and the incredible work they do, I knew we had to work with them.”
— Emmanuelle Vaugier

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, October 10, 2017 / -- The 2017 Fluffball ™, hosted by actress Emmanuelle Vaugier (Mistresses, Two and a Half Men, Saw, Lost Girl), will be held at Lombardi House on Saturday, November 4, 2017, 5pm-8pm. This exclusive charity event aims to raise money for Forgotten Horses Rescue, Inc., a non-profit organization that rescues and rehabilitates horses who are abandoned, unwanted and victims of extreme neglect.

“We’re thrilled to partner with a new beneficiary this year,” said Vaugier. “When I first heard about Forgotten Horses and the incredible work they do, I knew we had to work with them. Organizations like theirs is why I started The Fluffball Foundation - to bring awareness, exposure, and more importantly, raise funds for people are doing passionate work without expecting any sort of praise.”

The organization was established in 2012 and has taken in nearly 600 horses — an average of 100-150 rescues per year. There is no discrimination against certain breeds or circumstances.

Most of the horses are discovered through Craigslist ads, local horse auctions and emails from owners who no longer want or are able to care of them. Once Forgotten Horses Rescue learns of an animal in poor condition, the team brings it to the ranch where food, shelter and medical attention is provided. After a mandatory 30-day quarantine, the horse joins the rest of the rescue animals and is retrained and rehabilitated until adoption.

“Our mission is to rescue those horses that have been thrown away and forgotten, and give them the second chance that they so desperately need and deserve,” Tresha Geltner, president and founder of Forgotten Horses Rescue, said. “As a lifetime horse lover and professional horse trainer, it has enabled me to evaluate and care for these often-broken down and dispirited horses, then rehab and retrain them before matching them up with the right adopter. Forgotten Horses is so excited to be a part of this year’s Fluffball and share our love and experience with fellow animal rescue enthusiasts.”

This year’s event marks the the first Fluffball ™ to benefit horses and Forgotten Horses Rescue, Inc. Previous years have focused primarily on dog rescue, most recently having raised over $60,000 for The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation.

The 2017 Fluffball will be held on Saturday, November 4th from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Lombardi House, 1717 Bronson Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028. The guest list includes 200 celebrity and VIP guests, and offers a limited number of tickets for sale to the public. Past notable attendees have included Lori Loughlin, Anna Faris, Elisabeth Shue and Alyssa Milano.
