You can help us in our mission to provide kindness,  compassion, and a new loving home to abused and neglected horses. We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. Please make a donation and help us help the horses.




Equine Outreach is extremely grateful for the volunteers who make our mission possible by doing everything from daily ranch chores to writing grants. Our organization is run entirely by volunteers, so we rely solely on our team of generous individuals for the care of our horses, maintenance of the facilities, and all of our administrative duties.

Interested in being part of our Volunteer team?  

Please contact us and let us know what type of work you would like to do. Not only do we need help caring for the horses and keeping their spaces clean, but we also need behind-the-scenes help with fundraising and more. If you have experience handling horses, we could really use your help getting horses ready for adoption!

Age Requirement: Those under 18 years of age must have adult supervision while volunteering.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.  We hope you'll join our team!

Please print out and complete the Volunteer Application  and the Volunteer Handbook and bring them with you on your first visit to the ranch.

Volunteering..."The greatest reward is not what you get for your work, but what you become by it."

Do you have a car, truck, boat, motorcycle or RV that’s been good to you, but the time has come to say goodbye?  Equine Outreach Car Donation Program in partnership with the Center for Car Donations of Bend will accept donations that benefit the work Equine Outreach does in our community. Turn worries of costly repairs and selling into a tax deduction! All you need is a clear title to your vehicle, and the Center for Car Donations will do the rest. 

How do I donate a vehicle?
Call this toll free number to speak with a representative: 877-411-DONATE (877-411-3662)

​Does my car have to be running? 
Not always. It does have to have an engine and be tow-able. It varies from state to state and depends upon the year, makes, and model of the vehicle. Sometimes if the cost to transport a vehicle will cost more than what it will bring at auction, it may be declined. Call the toll free line to find out if your vehicle qualifies.

Does my car have to be registered?
No, but you must be the legal titleholder.

What if I lost the title?
You must obtain the title prior to donating it. Contact your local DMV to obtain a duplicate title.

Where do I sign my title?
The driver will instruct you of the proper place to sign your title. You may have to sign a power of attorney authorizing us to transfer it. The driver will let you know what is required, or call the toll free number (877) 411-DONATE or (877) 411-3662 to speak to a representative.

What kind of paperwork will I receive?
You will receive a tow receipt when the vehicle is picked up. Thirty days after the vehicle is sold, you will receive an acknowledgment. If your vehicle sells for OVER $500 you will receive IRS Form 1098 B & C.

How much can I take for my donation?
Effective 2005, if the value of the vehicle is over $500, the taxpayer is limited to deduct the amount for which the vehicle sold. In such a case you will receive a Form 1098 B & C within 30 days of sale. If the vehicle sells for under $500 you will not receive IRS forms as you are not required to file them for vehicle donations up to $500. Please consult your Tax Advisor to determine your benefit, or for additional information, visit the IRS website.

What will happen to my vehicle? 
Your vehicle will be picked up by one of the company's courteous drivers and sold at auction. Cars are usually sold within 30 days of pick up. Some vehicles may take longer.

Is there a tow fee?
No. If you are out of the towing range, they can offer you the option to drop the vehicle off at the auction house at your convenience.

Are all cars sold at auction?
No. Occasionally, cars that are donated do not sell at auction. In those cases, the vehicles are sold for scrap metal.

Will I be notified when it sells?
Yes. If the vehicle sells for over $500 you will receive IRS Form 1098 B & C. If not, you will simply receive an acknowledgment as required by the IRS.

How soon can my vehicle be picked up?
Vehicles are picked up at a time that is convenient for you. The representative will take all pertinent information regarding your donation, and forward it to the tow company. The tow company will call you within 24 hours to set up an appointment. 

What vehicles do you accept?
Cars, boats (if they are on a trailer), motor homes, trucks, motorcycles (if they are operational), farm equipment, and recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles, jet skis, etc.  Call a representative at (877) 411-3662 to find out if your vehicle qualifies.

Why Donate?
There are several great reasons, such as:

  • You don’t want to worry about selling your vehicle.

  • It is too expensive to repair your vehicle.

  • You don’t trust your car to be safe on the road.

  • You need a tax write-off.

To learn more about vehicle donations, call the vehicle donation information line toll free at (877) 411-DONATE or (877) 411-3662. Thank you for your support!
