Champion horse rider donates her prize money to save dogs from euthanasia

Charlotte Jacobs is a champion show jumper and donated her prize money to a dog rescue

Charlotte Jacobs is a young, champion show rider from the United States. She recently won several horse shows and has decided to donate $17,000 of her winnings to a dog rescue.

Danny and Ron's Rescue are the lucky recipients. The rescue is a no-kill rescue organization in Camden, South Carolina that has placed over 4200 dogs in loving homes since the non-profit opened in 2005.

"It's a great cause and they are doing an amazing thing," said Charlotte as to why she handed over her prize money.

"When the dogs are adopted the owners normally give a small donation, but Danny and Ron really need support and I think it's nice to be able to do this for them. It makes me feel really good and gives me an extra reason to go out there each week and do my best. My family loves dogs and we really want to support their mission."

Partners Danny Robertshaw and Ron Danta had been saving and rescuing dogs for years. But they officially founded Danny and Ron’s Rescue after learning of the many animals left homeless after Hurricane Katrina.

Today, Ron Danta posted a photo of a rescued puppy named Sarge on the rescue's Facebook page. He described the small puppy as found on the highway "with a plastic bag tied around its neck covering a gaping hole and 105˚ fever." The small dog is getting surgery and Ron wrote: "Thank you Charlotte Jacobs ... here's another dog we're able to save thanks to you!"
