Think of Habitat for Horses for the Holidays
There is actually a number of ways you can fill your stockings (and then some) this holiday season while helping Habitat for Horses expand our abilities as an Equine Rescue and our Educational Programs. No need to stand in long lines or get into fights over a sweater. A win win for everyone.
1. The Horse at Home Book. A 100 pages of wonderful prose and beautiful photographs of the rescued horses at the HfH Ranch.
Photographs by Skeeter Hagler and Kathy Oliver. Cost $150 – all proceeds will go to the Greener Pastures Land Fund for Habitat for Horses.
2. Give a Horse a Home for Christmas. From November 1st, 2013 through December 31, 2013 you can bring a horse (or a donkey!) home to foster them for Christmas…if you wish to adopt them, your price will only be the application fee of $35. You will need to pass a background check and property inspection as well as sign a foster agreement. You will need to be able to come out to the ranch in SE Texas to visit the horses.
By January 5th you will need to fill out an adoption application, if you wish to keep the horse. Not all horses on our website are available for this special, as some of them are currently being used in special programs – Only the horses listed on our official Give a Horse A Home for Christmas page are available.
Here are pictures of 4 of the horses (and donkeys) available – click here to view more information and see all of the horses available.
3. Shop at our online store– Click Here
“Until They Are Safe” Bracelets are a very popular item. Each stainless steel bracelet is engraved with the words: “Until They Are Safe”, beneath that quote is a description of a horse that was needlessly slaughtered. Your purchase goes towards making that goal come true.$15 each includes shipping.
You can make a donation to honor a loved one or out of the goodness of your heart. Your donations go towards the care and rehabilitation of horses rescued from abuse or death. As well as towards educational programs that benefit both the horses and the community as a whole. Learn more about donations by clicking here.
Another wonderful gift is the gift of volunteering. The moments spent helping a rescued horse, are moments that will last a lifetime in your memories. We need several different types of volunteers – from ranch work to fund raising and more. Click here to find out more and fill out the volunteer form.
Habitat for Horses is always on the lookout for a few great people at our ranches. The work is unique, the animals are special and we want folks who both know and understand the special connection our animals need.
