Every donation directly supports our mission to save unwanted and at-risk horses.

 

Donate

As a 501(c)3 organization, Pacific Northwest Equine Protection Society receives no state or federal funding. Our work is supported solely by the tax-deductible monetary and in-kind donations made by individual donors like you.
It costs approximately $250 per month to provide the basic care of hay, grain, grooming, routine veterinary care, and hoof care for one horse.

For horses who come to us with injuries or health problems that require extra veterinary care, the cost increases significantly. Add to that the cost of maintaining community-based foster facilities and reserve funds to rescue horses in need.

Regular horse board and care purchases include medications, hoof trimmers, grooming supplies, treats, blankets, manure rakes, wheelbarrows, and stall mats. The tools and materials used to maintain our foster facilities are often costly and include lumber, power tools, fencing, and even gas to haul rescued horses.

If you would like to make an in-kind donation, send an email to donations@equineprotectionsociety.org. Donors are encouraged to make monetary contributions using the Donate button at the top of the page.

Volunteer

At Pacific Northwest Equine Protection Society, your time is invaluable. We accept volunteers from a variety of fields, from skilled laborers to hobbyist photographers. We often need part-time volunteers for working parties, hauling rescues, organizing events, manning fundraisers, and stable management. We are currently seeking experienced haulers, field workers, ferriers, and veterinarians able and willing to donate their time to assist with current foster horses and future rescues.

Every horse that we are able to rehabilitate with your assistance can be safely re-homed in the community, which allows another horse in need to take its place.

Volunteer travel expenses such as mileage, meals, and lodging for qualifying charities may be tax-deductible. Please speak with your personal tax adviser for more details about your specific financial and in-kind contributions. In addition, time spent volunteering with Pacific Northwest Equine Protection Society may qualify as community engagement or service hours. Verify with your issuing agency the types of services that must be provided in order to qualify as a service hour prior to commitment.

If you would like to volunteer at events, become a foster site, or join our Equine Rescue Team (ERT), send email inquiries volunteer@equineprotectionsociety.org.
