Help Us Keep the Gates of Equine Outreach Open!
Posted 01/01/16: Behind these gates wonderful things happen...first and foremost for the equines in our care, and also for the volunteers who come from different backgrounds and means to help them. All of that is now in jeopardy.
Beginning this year, the lease payments on our ranch have increased substantially. To meet this obligation, we are launching the Keep the Gates Open campaign, with the goal of raising $62,500 in 62 days. That amount will cover the lease, insurance and utility expenses for all of 2016. Without that funding, the gates of Equine Outreach will have to close.
Equine Outreach is entering its 13th year of operation because of the dedication and generosity of its many volunteers and donors. Please donate whatever you can afford to give today...let's Keep the Gates Open!
UPDATE: Keep the Gates Open – Unbridled Joy!
Posted 04/29/16: Can you feel what Sadie and Charity must be experiencing in their flight across a green pasture? How can this image of two Rescue Revolution adoptees not bring you the joy they must be feeling? This is the embodiment of what Equine Outreach is about and why we work so hard at what we do. Finding wonderful homes for the horses we rescue closes the circle – rescue, rehabilitate and rehome!
There is joy to be shared on another level. The $5,000 challenge grant issued by a supporter who wishes to remain anonymous has been met. The challenge was to match dollar-for-dollar all donations to the Keep the Gates Open Campaign up to $5,000. Your response and generosity has taken us there. Thank you so very much.
This latest infusion brings us to 54 percent of our Keep the Gates Open goal of $62,500. There is more to be done, but given your response to date there is more joy yet to share.
Also, thank you to Treasurea Newell for sharing this wonderful picture of Sadie and Charity, the two Warm Springs mares she adopted at Rescue Revolution.
