Volunteers make the world of difference at Save the Horses!
Save the Horses is an all-volunteer organization. That means the horses depend on volunteers for feeding, care and quality of life. We are always in need of individuals who are passionate, hardworking, motivated, dedicated and dependable to lend us a helping hand with feed shifts, grooming, horse care, events, barn projects and more. You will be required to attend a New Volunteer Orientation which is held on the second Saturday of every month on our farm. Please print out the liability waiver and bring it to the New Volunteer Orientation. Please see below for information on the Orientation and other volunteer opportunities. Thank you for your help - We are Rescue!
