Sponsor A Horse

What does it mean to make a life saving difference?  Simply put, sponsorship saves lives.

All horses in Safe Harbor are eligible for sponsorship.  We have, however, found that sponsorship of our senior horses has been a rewarding experience for those who have gone that route as they are able to build a long term relationship with the horse of their choice.

Safe Harbor has sponsorship options starting at only $25/month, and all sponsors can meet the horse that they are sponsoring to directly see the reward of their life saving gift.

Safe Harbor Equine and Livestock Sanctuary is one of the few equine rescues that has both an adoption program, and a forever sanctuary program. In general, horses that are 30 years of age or older that enter our program and younger horses who are special needs are eligible to become sanctuary residents and have lifelong care guaranteed by the rescue. Each sanctuary horse is eligible for sponsorship.

What does this mean? As a senior sponsor, you are taking a special interest in that Senior Horse. While he or she will still live in Safe Harbor Sanctuary, we will designate on our website that you have sponsored that horse. If you live nearby we will welcome you to come out to meet the horse you are sponsoring, so you can see first hand how your donation is benefitting the horse. If you are far away, our foster home where the horse is will send you periodic updates and photos so you can maintain a relationship with your sponsored horse. 100% of the funds you donate for the sponsorship go directly to fund the care for that horse. They do not go into the general rescue fund.

We request that all sponsorships be a minimum 6 month commitment. You can sponsor annually or for the life of the horse as well. We will tailor your sponsorship to your request.

There are several sponsorship options.

Option 1 is our most popular. We estimate the average monthly care for a senior horse to be $150. With this sponsorship option you simply send a recurring donation of $150/month to Safe Harbor. Full sponsors are invited out to meet and form a relationship with their sponsored horse.

Option 2 is to partially sponsor a horse.  Our minimum sponsorship level to be listed on the website is $20/month!  This pays for a bag of feed for your horse, and will help them make it through the month.

Option 3 is to make an annual contribution for the full yearly costs of care for your sponsored horse.  We only set up sponsorship accounts for our forever fosters and special needs fosters so you can be assured that your sponsorship will go to the horse you wish to support.  With your $1,800 contribution for a full year of support for a Safe Harbor Sanctuary support we give you a Safe Harbor Gift Pack when you come to meet your beneficiary.  If you choose not to come to the farm, we will mail your gift pack to you.
