About Laura T. Sharpe:
Gravely injured in a tragic helicopter crash on California’s Catalina Island that killed three other passengers in 2008, Laura Sharpe suffered critical, near-fatal injuries that would change the course of her life forever. Sharpe fought her way through four weeks in a coma, endured 43 broken bones, burns over more than 40 percent of her body, multiple skin grafts, the near-loss of an eye, and the partial amputation of her foot. For more than two years after her near-death experience, Sharpe endured endless physical pain and 40 – 60 weekly hours of medical treatment and therapies.
Focusing on the future, and feeling grateful for all the love and support she was blessed to receive, Laura Sharpe embarked on a journey of re-discovery through a personal engagement with the arts. From her work with esteemed artists in the areas of photography, film, dance, sculpture and music, Sharpe was able to rise above and beyond her pain and dramatically improve the quality of her recovery through the creative interaction between herself and the artists. Compelled to help other trauma survivors find strength in their recovery, regain a sense of hope and see the beauty in life, Laura Sharpe founded Artists For Trauma.

Skydog Sanctuary VIP Event At The Malibu Ranch With The Rescued Mustangs

(HOLLYWOOD PRESS CORPS) September 16th, 2017 — The non profit horse sanctuary, known as Skydog Sanctuary, hosted a VIP event in Malibu that introduced their organization to Malibu and Los Angeles. They are raising awareness for their cause and reaching out for volunteers. Skydog Sanctuary  is a non-profit organization that provides sanctuary for horses that have been neglected, abused or wound up in kill pens. Guests at the luxe event where invited meet some of the beautiful horses and come together for a good cause.

The afternoon was idyllic and relaxed. Wise BBQ provided delicious bites and refreshments. Actress Kyle Richards was on hand to support this philanthropic event. Kyle worked with the late Tobe Hooper on the movie Eaten Alive. Kyle is most recently featured on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle attended with her daughter Portia Umansky and sister Kim Richards. Kim is also featured on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kim’s daughter Brooke also came to see the horses with her husband and son Hucksley. Rachel Hunter posed for photos with the horses that she knows so well from past visits to the ranch.

Skydog Sanctuary is a non profit organization that provides a rescue home to at-risk mustang horses in America. They have three locations in Malibu, CA, Calabasas, CA, and Bend, OR. Skydog is a forever home for wild horses providing sanctuary for mustangs that have wound up in kill pens, at auction, or being neglected, starved, or abused. Many of these horses are recused hours away from being shipped to slaughter in Mexico or Canada to be killed for their meat and served on foreign dinner plates.

Tragically every year over 150,000 American horses are sent to be inhumanely slaughtered and many of those are mustangs. Skydog Sanctuary’s biggest, most important mission is to shine a spotlight on the issues facing our wild horses while continuing to rescue as many as possible. By spreading awareness of the situation we can show how special, valuable, and unique these wild horse are and create pressure to find alternative solutions that don’t require unnecessary killing, or captivity, for these beautiful animals.

Visit Skydog Ranch for more information on donating or volunteering.
