MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
There are a number of ways to help the MHR horses.
Volunteer orientations take place biweekly on Sundays. Please email email@example.com to sign up for our next orientation.
After orientation, volunteer days take place each Sunday from 9am-noon. Outside volunteering hours are scheduled on a case by case basis.
Volunteers under 16 must volunteer with a parent or guardian.
Check out our volunteer opportunities:
Helping with daily tasks of cleaning stalls, water buckets, raking, cleaning feed bins, feeding, grooming, gardening, laundry, cleaning tack, organizing, painting and more. We also look for help with larger items from setting up panels to fixing shed runs.
Media Volunteers help document horse progress photos, events, and rescue headshots. Some of our grants require creative and video production as well, so we are always looking for experts!
Help MHR run smoothly by helping with tasks like data entry, paperwork, organization, mailings and posting rescues to sites such as DreamHorse.
Distributing fliers and sharing posts about events and available rescues.
Additional funding is always needed to care for our rescues. Volunteers can help our Fundraising Committee, or work solo, to raise dollars that is put toward vet bills and top notch care.
MHR is always looking for expertise from specialty areas such as attorneys, carpentry, engineers, electricians, graphic designers, event planning, data management, marketing, etc. Let us know if you can help!
NOTE: All volunteers must attend our horse 101 training course, and be involved with one or more activities before caring for the rescue horses. We understand the desire to work directly with the horses, however our rescues often are in the process of rehabilitation and learning how to trust. Working with this type of horse takes time and experience. MHR will teach dedicated volunteers how to work with rescues as long as it is a safe and positive environment for everyone.
