Ways to Support our rescue mission

Our 501(c)3 status has almost been secured! As of November 20, 2018, we have been granted an NFP (Not For Profit) tax ID number. This means that all of your future generous donations are tax deductible! Our NFP tax ID number is 8322579723. Thank you for your continuing support and contributions!

Rescuing large animals is an expensive endeavor. Unlike a small animal shelter, the items we need are not as simple as newspaper or old blankets. The items needed for farm animals are larger and higher dollar. The cost of rehabbing one average weight, fairly healthy horse is approximately $400 per month. Horses that are malnourished or require extensive vet care can increase to well over $1,000 in their first month here on the farm.
