Nearly everyone who comes to Haven Acres knows what it’s like to feel broken in some way. That is why it is so special to us to have horses who have experienced a similar emotion. The majority of our horses are “broken.” When horses are rescued, donated, or bought by Haven Acres, they are given safety, purpose, and a sense of belonging. Horse sponsorship is one of the ways that people can be involved in supporting the horses and kids in our care. A full monthly horse sponsorship is $90-280 a month, depending on the horse. This covers the horse’s feed, hoof care, and basic medical costs or medications as well as offering a child the chance to build a relationship with them free of charge. Full and partial sponsorships are available.
Currently less than half of our horses have monthly sponsors. We would be thrilled to grow that number or even get sponsors for all of them! If every horse was sponsored, covering our minimum monthly horse care expenses, that would completely undergird the ministry. This would in turn free up time, grant us the ability to pay salaries, and supply funds for unexpected expenditures and valuable projects. It would be a huge game changer for Haven Acres’ stewardship of the ministry. Please contact us if you would like to partner with us in this way!

Each horse at Haven Acres has different health and care needs, so we have tried to estimate the cost of each one on a monthly basis. This includes their hay, hoof care, vaccinations, deworming, dental care, and if they need any grain or medications. As a sponsor you are not responsible for any unexpected medical costs. Some of the horses need special shoes to keep them from limping while others need medications for diseases like Cushing’s. Still others require grain because they don’t have good enough teeth to grind up grass and hay. As the sponsor you are helping us give quality care to these amazing horses!
