ADOPTING & FOSTERING:
Once these wonderful horses and ponies are ready to go, we begin to look for suitable loving homes for them. Most of them are ready to be adopted out, but some will need fostering until they are ready for adoption. Would you be interested in becoming an Adoptive Parent or Foster Parent for one of these needy rescued equines? Feel free to contact me for details on how you can open your heart & barn to one or more of these equines and offer them permanent loving homes or temporarily until new adoptive homes can be found. At this point we are only "fostering" to local families. Adopted or Fostered horses and ponies CANNOT be sold or given away under any circumstances. They must always be returned to HCW. I do not want to lose track of any of these horses. Adoption fees will be refunded.
We have started a Sponsoring Program for people that want to help care for a specific horse. You can sponsor a pony or horse of your choice for 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, etc up to a year, which you pay a monthly or yearly donation for ($20.00 or more per month). The average horse costs $100 a month for feed alone (this does not include other costs such as vet, blacksmith, de-worming, blankets, fly spray, supplements, etc). You can help as much or as little as you want. You can send blankets, fly masks, grooming kit, $ for feed, etc. We will send you details, updates & photos of your adopted horse/pony during that time. You get to chose which horse/pony you want to adopt and if during your adoption time, the horse/pony has been adopted out from HCW, you can choose another horse/pony. Email me for more details! Here is a list of the long-term residents here at HCW that are really in need of a sponsor:
Franni, Freckles, Robin, Spirit, Misty, Razz, Cuddles, Bear, Pepper, Velvet, Crash Bang & Houdini (Harry).,
HCW Equine Rescue always welcomes VOLUNTEERS with open arms! Perhaps you can volunteer by assisting with trailering of these equines home from auctions, or to their new adoptive or foster homes?? If you have a reliable trailer and would be willing to be a volunteer driver, please email me, I'd love to hear from you.
You may also volunteer your time if you are local and want to come and spend time with the rescued horses/ponies.. handling them, feeding them, grooming them, leading & tying them, some are able to be ridden, some need to be broke, stalls to be cleaned, buckets to be washed, there's always lots to do and we welcome your help. If you are not local and would like to volunteer your time, perhaps you could post our newsletters at feed stores & tack shops near you.
