HABITAT FOR HORSES
What Is It?: A not-for-profit equine protection agency committed to the prevention, rescue, and rehabilitation of neglected, abused, and homeless equine. It operates a rehabilitation ranch, an adoption/education center, a 160 acre therapy center, and an equine retirement facility.
Help Needed: Help with ranch work, yard work, or construction / repair projects, or collect needed items.
Minimum Age to Volunteer: 13. Youth aged 13–17 must have a parent or guardian present and volunteer with them.
In the morning, we pen the horses for feeding, then release them, clean up the ranch (scoop poop, etc.), and interact with the animals (grooming, etc.) as weather and time permits. The afternoon work varies. Volunteer hours for ranch work are 8 AM-3 PM, 7 days a week. Many people volunteer the entire day.
Yard work is a never-ending chore, but we do our best to try to make the ranch look inviting. Bring your lawn mower, weed eater, and clippers, and instead of grooming horses spend a day grooming the lawn.
As with any ranch, there are always construction projects to be done. We need help from repairing fences to building shelters. If you are handy with construction tools we need you!
