In 2021 Travellers Rest Farm Sanctuary helped 75 horses from the slaughter pipeline. Many of the horses saved reside at the Sanctuary while some remain boarded at other facilities until space opens up at the sanctuary or they are adopted.
Today with the rising costs of grain and hay, we are spending upwards of $5,000 on those alone.
Sponsors help offset the costs meeting our monthly expenses while continuing to provide the best care we can for those horses that rely on us. Sponsor donations are tax deductible, and 100% of your donation go towards the horse.
Each horse is unique in their personality and needs so there is a wonderful horse for everyone to love. To become a monthly sponsor download, complete, and snail mail or email us your completed Sponsor Form along with your donation.
SPONSOR A RESIDENT - Our sanctuary horses never leave the farm and remain with us until their passing. Some only stay a short time while others are with us for many years. During their time with us they receive 365/24/7 access to hay, shelter and water. They also receive medical and farrier treatment as needed along with daily feedings. Meet our RESIDENTS
SPONSOR A NON-RESIDENT - Some horses are currently being boarded while they wait for their person to come along or for a space at the Sanctuary to become available. We desperately need sponsors to help offset the cost to keep these horses happy and healthy while they wait. Meet our NON-RESIDENTS
