Each horse we rescue costs up to $1,500 to buy from the kill buyer, rehabilitate, retrain and prepare for adoption. Your donations of time, goods and money help to defray the cost of loving horses from slaughter to sanctuary, and enable us to save even more equine lives.
So many ways to help...
We don't know what we would do without the kindness and generosity of the volunteers who, week after week, come to to Swingin' D to spend time with our horses. We have numerous opportunities for volunteers to help us rescue, rehab, evaluate, train and re-home horses.
We appreciate gifts of talent, funding and precious time.
It's important to keep our horses moving, remembering their training and the work that makes them feel useful and settled. But there's no way we can spend time with each and every one of them every day. Each horse needs regular exercise, feeding, grooming and evaluation. We also need help with ranch office work, shopping and inventory.
Swingin' D trains volunteers in the following:
Administrative – We get it! Not everyone likes to get dirty.
You can help with scheduling volunteers, planning events.
Barn chores – mucking, cleaning stalls, cleaning troughs.
