Becoming a sponsor can fulfill your desire for a barnyard companion while helping us feed and care for our animals. There are many animals available for sponsorship including, dogs, goats, horses, and even a cat! There are many different sponsorship levels with various perks. Choose one that is right for you and while you are sponsoring each animal you are welcome to come spend time with them and learn all about them!
Horses are very expensive to care for and have many needs, even the healthy ones. At a bare minimum, they must be fed a balanced ration, have access to forage, be watered and sheltered, receive regular hoof maintenance, and be seen at least once per year by a veterinarian. Below is a breakdown of our costs for a healthy, post-rehab, barefoot horse that has no special needs.
The cost per horse, per month in our care is $286.98. This doesn't include property maintenance, transportation cost, equipment maintenance, housing, water, or any costs associated with rehabilitating each horse. Most training is donated, but there will be the occasional case that we must hire outside help and that cost is not built in to the list above. Becoming a sponsor, of any animal and in any amount, can help us cover these costs and help us get these horses closer to a forever home!
You can spend time with our primary goat guardian! She is especially sweet and gentle, loves grooming, and playing. She would be great for a person or family that wants to learn all about Livestock Guardian Dogs. You'll also get weekly photo updates if you're not able to come out and spend time with her.
Ginger has 2 sponsorship spots available!
Candy Cane needs a lot of loving human attention. This sweet girl is a partner to Ginger, but is not the social butterfly that Ginger is. She needs a sponsor willing to work with her very slowly and would be a great candidate for adult sponsors! You'll also get weekly photo updates if you're not able to come out and spend time with her.

Bob is a very special cat! She came from a local vet clinic that couldn't keep her. She works in our feed room on rodent patrol and as general companionship around the ranch. She was born without a tail and has a very unique and lovable personality. She is gentle enough for any age sponsor! You'll also get weekly photo updates if you're not able to come out and spend time with her.
