more horses in need

This has been a busy week, we have received many calls about horses in need, ranging from ponies to green horses and older horses ready to be that family horse for the grand kids or for a loving retirement home. Each of these cases we have concerned owners unable to continue care due to physical or financial constraints. Today I spent 5 hours driving to locations and evaluating horses. With all of these cases we look at how we can help and still balance their needs with the needs of the horses currently at the rescue. We would love to say yes without hesitation but we can't always do so.

Our abilities physically and financially can only stretch so far. We are very grateful for our volunteers but there is always more tasks than hands. We are currently looking for persons to do pre and post adoption site checks and reference checks. Our adoptions range from local to several hours from the bay area, so even if you are not local, please feel free to contact us. If you have computer/website experience and are interested in working closely with the rescue, we could use an assistant to our webmaster. Regular volunteers at the ranch are still needed to help with daily cleaning and feeding, mostly in the mornings between 8 and 12. For direct handling of the horses we require you to be over 18 and be experienced, but no experience is required to work with us at promotion events. As always monetary donations are needed the most as well as individual sponsorship and foster homes, all of which have the added benefit as tax deductible donations.

We know that this spring will bring out yet more horses who have suffered a hard winter, and we want to be able to help. Please think of what you can do to help us help the horses.
