Join the Herd

Join the HerdRegardless of the amount, your donation to Save the Horses (Horse Rescue Relief & Retirement Fund) will help provide much needed food, shelter, veterinary care and farrier services for abused and/or neglected equine and other animals. You are literally donating to save a life.

Who gets your donation?: Abandoned, malnourished, abused, crippled, old and injured horses need love and care. We help the neediest horses and give them hope. They learn trust and love from humans.

Needs: We need donations to pay vet and feed bills. We always need hay, horse feed, fencing, farm equipment and more. We are an all volunteer organization so your donation go towards the animals we serve.

Our Challenge: The economy has put more horses in neglect and abuse situations. Help us Save the Horses. We receive no federal or state funds so we have to rely on the generosity of the public to run our rescue.

Make a donation of as little as $5 or more
to secure the future of our rescued animals.

"We would not be able to rescue, rehabilitate and provide sanctuary to these horses without the support of our volunteers & donors. Our nonprofit organization is run entirely by volunteers and funded 100% by donations and small grants, so for us, every penny counts. Thank you for caring and making a positive difference in these horses' lives!"

Here are some of our common expenses:

  • Total cost to keep a horse for a month is about $400 and that does not include medical expenses.
  • Feed and hay for a week: $2,260
  • Annual vet expenses: Exceed $20,000
  • Dental: $4800 about $80 per horse per year
  • Hoof Trimming: $3,760 every six weeks (about $25 per horse)
Multiply all of this by more than 100 horses and many more other animals
and you can see why we need your help. It costs $10,000 per month to run our rescue.
