Sponsorship: I am Dale Paulette Stone and I have been operating this Rescue Ranch for 16 years on my own. For the past few years, the ranch is without trail rides to generate all the funds I need to run this special place. It is thanks to all the wonderful people that this ranch remains open. To give you an idea of the dollars involved to care for a rescued horse, (on average) the minimum required to maintain a horse for feed, hay, bedding, ferrier work (trimming hooves) and veterinary care is about $200 per month, per horse. Horses that are extremely malnourished or have special needs, require more care until they are fully recovered and back to normal weight. In these cases, the monthly dollar amount is much higher.
Monthly Sponsorship details for one of our precious rescues are as follows and gratefully appreciated in denominations of:
$10.00: cats, dogs, bunnies, goats, llama, emu, ducks, pot-bellied pigs, chickens, roosters, even a squirrel or two, a donkey and smaller horses. Provide daily maintenance such as feed and veterinary care as required, including spay/neutering.
$30.00: Horses - towards the maintenance and veterinary care of the horses. You will receive a personalized Certificate of Appreciation with a picture of your sponsored horse.
$50.00: Horses - towards the maintenance and veterinary care of the horses. A personalized Certificate of Appreciation, plus one half-hour lesson on your sponsored horse, if it is a suitable match.**
$100.00: Horses - towards the maintenance and veterinary care of the horses. A personalized Certificate of Appreciation, plus two half-hour lesson on your sponsored horse, if it is a suitable match.**
Other Amounts: Should you like to arrange for another monthly amount as a Sponsor, please message me via our contact form indicating your wish.
Your name will be placed on a wooden plaque and hung on you sponsored horse's stall. For the other animals, it will be placed on or near the pen where they sleep. We encourage you to please come to visit with your sponsored animal
** A suitable match: Not every horse suits every person. Not every horse may be rideable due to age, infirmity or other factors. Like us, they too may have medical/disability issues. As a substitute, I will choose a horse for you to make a good match for your lessons and visit.
Rocking Horse Ranch Calenders, Mugs, T-shirts & Hooded Sweatshirts are also available at different times of the year for purchase. These items help provide much needed additional funds. Please ask us for details if you're interested in purchasing something.
If you find this is something your heart leads you to do, please send us a message, or call
