Gay-owned Ranch Hand Rescue continues saving farm animals through brutally cold weather

Starlight

Ranch Hand Rescue is a sanctuary for abused and neglected farm animals. They have been removed from their current situation by a county humane officer, sheriff or law enforcement official.

In December, we wrote about a fundraiser for the organization to help owner Bob Williams feed and give the animals the medical care they need. Their goal was $10,000 and they raised more than $15,000.

“The place was packed,” Williams said.

This past week was a particularly difficult one for them because of the cold weather.

“Our animals still need their medications and feeding,” Williams said.

Frozen pipes and additional staff increased costs.

William Scott releases single ‘Planet Green’ featuring Tim’m West

I mentioned Tim’m West in last Friday’s issue for the sessions he’s holding here starting today. With all that he does to advocate for the LGBT community, we can’t forget he came to light while in the hip-hop group DDC. He’s on his own now and still records his own music, but you can get an ear-glimpse of him here in William Scott‘s song “Planet Green” released yesterday from his album Starlight.

I have to say, I’m kinda lovin’ this groove. The song didn’t grab me right away, but it grew a downright jam. Looking forward to checking out the rest.
