MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local nonprofit group is in need of help and a community is lending a hand. Hoofprints of the Heart is seeing more animals coming into the barn rather than out to loving homes.

The horse rescue in Marana is currently housing 50 horses. Saturday Post Feed and Supply in Marana turned their whole lot into a fundraising zone for Hoofprints of the Heart. The event included face painting, food trucks and other vendors.

This is the first time the rescue has done this because they really need help. So far this year they have adopted 76 horses but they still have a packed ranch.

The horses have come to the rescue for various reasons. Either they were abused or the owner didn't have the money to pay for the care of the animal.

The director, James Boudrieau, says it cost about four thousand dollars a month to care for the 50 horses.

Thirty percent of the sales from this weekend's event will go to help Hoofprints of the Heart.
