Giving sick, abused and unwanted horses a second chance.

Get Involved

get involved

Running a rescue requires constant attention and it is something that takes a community, not just a few people. We can use your help! There are many ways to support Horse Helpers. The obvious way is through a monetary donation but we also need the help of volunteer time and foster homes. You can donate money for specific items (see our wish list below), for the general fund, or you can sponsor a horse.

Monetary Donations

Direct monetary donations help the Rescue in two important ways. First, monetary donations also help us be good stewards of your donations because we can be planful about the expenses of the organization. Second, because we cannot predict when we will find a house who needs our help, sometimes it can be hard to predict when we will have an immediate, emergency need for funds. Unrestricted monetary gifts allow us to respond the needs of the whole organization when they arise. You can donate at any time using the link at the top right of this page.

Sponsor a Horse

For just $50 a month you can sponsor a horse that is growing from abuse, neglect, health problems or having been unwanted. Your gift of $50 a month shows that the horse does have a place and that you want to help it. Your gift includes shavings for the stall, feed, and supplements. If your horse finds a forever home, we will help you select a new horse to sponsor. If $50 a month is not possible for you, you can still be a Horse Helper and sponsor a horses’ feed and hay for only $30 a month.

Volunteers

As with any nonprofit, volunteers are at the core of the success of the Rescue. Your time may be tax deductible and the benefits for your heart are priceless.

Fostering

Today’s economic crisis greatly increases the risk of animal abuse. As a rescue we are being stretched beyond our capacity trying to help. You can help by fostering a horse.

Collect Southern States Legends, Reliance, or Triple Crown Feed for Dollars

If you use Southern States Legends, Reliance, or Triple Crown feed for your horses start collecting the proof of purchase seals on the outside of the bags. Send us your seals and we can redeem them for money toward feed. Use our Contact Us form to get the details of where to send the seals.

This may seem like a small thing, but if enough people will keep us in seals we can have a large part of our feed bills paid for. After we receive your first set of proof of purchase seals we will send you a self addressed stamped envelope as a reminder to collect them.

Contact us to submit your coupons.One of the greatest needs we have is for food.Horses come to us malnourished and literally starving. The photos of Buttercup below show how she came to us and how she is now. Food that we can buy with coupons really makes a difference.

Donating Items

As the rescue expands so too do our needs for specific items. Maybe you own some of the things we need and would like to donate them. Here are some of the specific things we need for the rescues growth. They are small and some are big. Use our Contact Us form to let us know what is on your mind.
