Donate and Volunteer

Help is not always money.
In fact, the most important help you can give us is to spread the word about our rescue, and to give us your time. Very often, we find ourselves short-handed, and we could always use a helping hand. You do not need to know an awful lot about horses – you just need to be willing to work hard.

Help can be digging holes for fence posts. Help can be weed-whacking. Help can be moving hay bales to the hay loft. Help can be brushing and talking to our guys, just so that they know they are loved. If you are an experienced rider, help can be exercising or rehabilitating the horses. If you have time to donate, we have chores you can do. Consider sparing an hour or two to help improve the lives of these wonderful animals.

That being said…

SCR is a non-profit organization that relies on fund raisers and donations from people like you. All money donated is tax deductible and goes towards the care of our animals. Make a difference today.

Donations can also be supplies or equipment. SCR accepts any equine no matter size, shape or breed. For that reason, we need a large variety of equipment in good repair. Furthermore, we take in all types of injuries, maladies and special needs, so we have need for many supplies, including but not limited to:

  • joint & hoof supplies
  • shavings
  • fly spray and masks
  • halters (break-away or safety halters preferably)
  • lead ropes
  • blankets
  • old towels
  • unused tack

Volunteer Hours
Volunteers are welcomed any Saturday or Sunday 10am to 1pm. There is always something to be done at The Ranch, and we love to have new volunteers.

Troops, clubs and community groups must schedule a day and time before visiting. Please plan to join us no later than 11am.  To schedule a group appointment, email Michelle at

And so we ask… Will you help us to help them?
