At Central Virginia Horse Rescue, each horse arrives with a story — some have faced neglect, others abuse, and many are simply malnourished. They all need compassionate individuals like you to help them on their journey to recovery and happiness. By sponsoring one of our resident horses, you’re providing the essential care they need, which amounts to $31.90 per day or $957 per month. Below are just a few names of the horses who would benefit greatly from your sponsorship. This is more than just a donation; it’s a lifeline. It’s a partnership that heals, nurtures, and restores. Consider becoming a sponsor today and make a profound difference in the lives of these deserving horses. Visit our website to learn more and select a horse to sponsor. Together, we can change their stories from survival to revival!
