Virtual Foster Program!
You get the pleasure of owning a virtual horse while it is going through the process of rehabilitation and training. On the average, we spend between $1,500 and $2,000 on every horse that enters our gates before it is ready to adopt.
Your gift to the virtual horse program helps us prepare a horse for its final adoption, which usually happens six months to a year after we first bring it through our gates and helps us support the horses throughout our organization.
You will have recognition through our Facebook page monthly with an update on the horse you choose to sponsor. Anytime you would like to come visit we can arrange some time with the horse you choose to sponsor.
Sponsorship is only $30 a month and each horse can be sponsored by more than one individual. As you can see below the cost of upkeep is expensive but this is your chance to make a change in one horses life.
We have horses in rehab, resident horses and those that available for adoption.
Each horse requires a minimum standard of care, which includes the following:
Farrier (every 6-8 weeks) – $25
Equine dentist (every 6-12 months) – $80
Wormer (every 6-9 weeks) – Between $4 to $12
Bag of feed – $15 (lasts 3-5 days)
Fly Spray (bottle) – $12 a bottle
1 dose of antibiotic – $6, including needle and syringe
1 dose of pain medicine: Bute – $2, Banamine – about $7
Vaccines (Annual EEE, WNV, etc.) – $24
Annual Coggins – $35
