2021 was another year of growth for the CVHR family. With your support, we have been able to help 60+ horses in need within our community. These horses have come from owner surrenders, animal control seizures, auctions and kill pens. No matter where they have come from, one thing remains the same, you have been able to give them a second chance at life.
Over the last year we have needed to provide sanctuary to more horses than normal and we have taken on some complicated medical rehabilitation cases. With your support we have been able to provide emergency medical care to horse like St Nick who spent his first month with us being treated for severe stomach ulcers and multiple choking episodes. We were able to fully rehabilitate Christmas from a body score of 1 to his successful adoption where he is now currently fat and happy with his adoptive mom.
In order to continue to assist the horses in our care and additional horses within our community, we are asking for a monthly sponsorship of one of our more long term residents. Sponsorships start as low as $10 per month.
Your monthly donations help support:
$25 – Bag of Feed
$50 – Hoof Trim
$75 – Vaccines
$150 – Veterinary Visit
$250 – Emergency Veterinary Visit
As our special for our Giving Tuesday Sponsor – A – Thon, we have 3 special gifts for everyone who sponsors one of our horses!
$10 monthly sponsorship – 5×7 Photo of one of our horses
$25 monthly sponsorship – Special Holiday Ornament
$75 monthly sponsorship – Exclusive Team CVHR Jersey
From our kill pen rescues Andy, Bruce and Goggins to our sanctuary residents Dolly, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip, we aim to provide each one with the best care possible through your support. On average, the CVHR Volunteer team is caring for roughly 25 horses daily. Our residents range in health from fully healthy to those receiving multiple veterinary visits a week and multiple treatments a day.
We thank you for your continued support allowing us to continue the mission of providing care to neglected, abused and abandoned horses!
