Our biggest fundraising event is our May Auction. It includes a large silent auction and a live auction. We accept donations to our auctions throughout the year. Our silent auction includes art, jewelry, crafts, clothing, horse tack/accessories, books, gift certificates and much more. Our live auction includes air travel tickets, hotel/condo stays, high item art, jewelry and clothing. Please remember us when “spring-cleaning,” or if your vacation home is available for a week.

Many donors prefer to bring us what we need, or donate to a specific fund. Our hay fund is always in need of funds and if you have horse-related items (saddles, tack, grooming tools, buckets, tank heaters, tanks, feeding racks, shelter, etc.) that you do not need anymore, please consider donating them to us.


We sell various items through our Ebay store, of which all proceeds go to supporting and rescuing horses.


Memory Donations: We will notify the family of the deceased of your donation made in honor of their beloved.

Gift Donations: Do you need a gift for somebody that already has everything? Please consider donating to The Horse Shelter in their name. They will receive a beautiful card notifying them that a donation was made in their honor.

Equine Memorial Donations: The loss of a horse is incredibly difficult on horse owners. If you would like to show your support and sympathy by making a contribution in their name we will send them a card to notify them of your gift.

Remainder Trusts: Remember us in your estate planning, this can give you and your heirs tax benefits. Please click here for more information on Charitable Remainder Trusts.


We hold various events throughout the year in support of The Horse Shelter. From our big auction every May, to fundraising dinners, to film festivals, and our annual Gimme Shelter events, we welcome you to attend our events and support our horses!


We are always looking for responsible and qualified volunteers to work with and around our horses. We also have a major fundraising auction in May that requires a lot of volunteer work and we have a lot of stands from spring through fall at different community events, such as rodeos, festivals, artist market, etc. Learn More
