We can't do this without you!

It costs Swingin’ D about $1,500 to save a horse. For the horses that come from kill pens, by the time we pay the kill buyer, transporter, vet, farrier, feed store and trainer, we’ve drained our savings account on our way to adopting out the horse. 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 come to the ‘D to spend time with our horses. Those who want to help us on our mission to rescue, rehab, evaluate, train and re-home horses find multiple opportunities to volunteer their time and talent!

Monetary donations and adoption fees help us to pay for veterinary care, farrier service, feed, hay, supplements and other necessities. But people help us in plenty of other ways that don’t cost a dime!

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: Help schedule volunteers, plan events.
  • Barn chores – mucking, cleaning stalls, cleaning troughs.
  • Ranch operations
  • Grant writing
  • Horse training
  • Fundraising
  • IT support
  • Social media
  • Marketing
  • Bookkeeping
