What does it mean to Sponsor a Rescue Horse?
With the high cost of hay and feed, along with medical, dental and farrier expenses, sponsoring a horse helps us continue to care for our horses in need. It costs about $10 per day to feed a horse and RVR Horse Rescue is home to approximately 27 animals.
There are many people who contribute to the recovery and care of our horses. Each has a distinct and critical role.
Our dedicated volunteers provide the daily food and water. They muck the stalls and pastures, while providing a dose of TLC. Beyond that, each horse is assigned a Barn Buddy. This person devotes a few hours each week to the physical care of the horses. They bathe and groom and provide basic care. A Barn Buddy is a little like owning a horse without the financial responsibility.
Sponsorship makes it financially possible for RVR to provide for these horses and keep them safe. Our sponsors make a monthly contribution to the care of a specific horse. These donations go directly toward the expenses for that particular animal. Sponsorships put a dent in the care and feed costs for each horse, and one of our goals is to secure a sponsor for each horse we care for at RVR Horse Rescue.
Local sponsors are welcome to come on site to establish a relationship with their sponsored animal, but this isn’t a requirement. Therefore, sponsorship is one excellent way for people not near the rescue to get involved.
We are always in need of sponsors for our incoming rescues and the recurring donation amount can be any amount you choose.
Why Sponsor a Horse?
Sponsors help free up funds to help rescue and rehabilitate more horses.
You get the joys of having a horse without the commitment. Our Sponsor program is a month to month donation so you can stop at any time.
We are a 501(c)3 Non-Profit, so your sponsorship is considered a donation and is tax deductible.
You get to create a bond with a horse that needs you!
