After reading about SSFRE and the work that is being done, perhaps you're asking yourself "How can I help?"
Newton, at the new location.
After reading the list below, please contact us with any questions, to set up a sponsor, co-sponsor, item donation or to arrange a meeting time to learn more about volunteering.
- Sponsoring or co-sponsoring the SSFRE barn lease. Our barn is going to be $500 for the first three month starting July 16th, 2011 then will be $700 a month thereafter.
- Sponsoring or co-sponsoring a rescue horse. This would include all the feed, vet and farrier billsand barn space for an SSFRE horse until adopted. On average, if the horse is up to date, this would be around $100-$150/mo. As a sponsor or co-sponsor, you would receive updates on your horse and photos as often as possible! Some horses may need professional training to make them easier to adopt out, and this could be included. Due to time constraints, Carolyn prefers to send some of the unbroken, green ones for 30 days with John Kenoyer, who is $800/mo for excellent care and training.
- Fund raising your own way with your own ideas. Please remember, we are a private rescue at this time and do not have 501(c)(3) status. PENDING
- Direct donating to the general fund (hay, bedding, extra's) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a mailing address.
- PurchasingTractor Supply Company gift cards for the "extras"
- Donating items that our horses or barn may need.
- "Sharing" our adoptable horses on Facebook and passing the word along to your non Facebook friends.
- Volunteering to help at the farm: this could include riding if skilled as well as other horse and barn related work. Wherever there are horses, there is never a shortage of things needing to be done. If you are contemplating becoming a new horse owner, this would be an excellent way to learn proper care and horsemanship.
