The Heart of Our Rescue, Our Volunteers
There are so many ways that our dedicated volunteers make a difference in the lives of our rescues. Whether it's getting down and dirty with farm work or assisting with community outreach and fundraising, we appreciate their willingness to give their time and their talents to further our mission.

H.O.P.E. Partner Program
Our H.O.P.E. Partner Program in 2016 paired every horse on the farm with a volunteer. Together they learned trust and respect between handler and animal. Our goal with this program was to help every horse work through mishandling and abuse and in turn educate those who help nurture them through proper handling and respect for the animal. The bond we have seen form between caregiver and horse has been monumental!
We are all extremely thrilled to share that throughout our 2016 Program, there were a total of 15 adoptions to forever homes! Our highest number of adoptions in one year to date! Many thanks to everyone who participated and committed their time, energy and love to make such a monumental impact in so many of our horses' lives.
We would love to hear about your volunteer experience with us!
