HELP US SAVE HORSES

Every horse we rescue depends on you, because our rescue is 100% dependent on your donations. It's never easy, but we're committed and we need your help each month. It costs $250 per horse, per month, to properly care for our rescued horses and our barns are full.

Your donation of any amount is crucial. The horses need your help!

MONTHLY DONATION

The most difficult job in horse rescue is not when we save a horse from a sad, desperate situation--it's when the emergency fades and we have to find the funds each month to care for our the horses in our care.

It costs, on average, $250 per horse each month to properly care for our permanent residents, and because Bright Futures Farm is funded solely by donations, sponsorships and grants, we are always in need of regular, monthly donations. Will you help us care for the horses at Bright Futures Farm and make a monthly donation?

2017 DONATION DRIVE

HELP US SAVE HORSES!

Help Bright Futures Farm save horses this year by making a donation during our 2017 Donation Drive. Bright Futures Farm is dedicated to saving horses...we NEVER take shortcuts on a horse's medical care and we NEVER deny a horse in need, even when there is no room on our farm and we have to help a horse at another location. Our adoptable horses receive a good foundation under saddle before going to a new home and once adopted, we keep track of every horse by requiring regular updates. Even when our rescued horses are elderly or cannot be adopted due to an injury or illness, we make sure it has a loving home for the rest of its life.

 

TRUSTWORTHY AND PROVEN

Bright Futures Farm is a trusted 501(c)(3) charity in its seventeenth year of helping horses in need. We have the highest accreditation an equine charity can achieve - accreditation by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance. We receive no funding from state or federal agencies and rely solely on donations for support, so we need your help.

 

HELP US DO WHAT WE DO BEST

AND GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE

Making a donation will allow us to continue to do what we do best...save horses that are suffering, abused, and neglected. The horses we rescued from the hanging barn in May were with us just five months and because of their dire condition, it cost over $18,000 to make them healthy again. Medical expenses for the six horses from the hanging barn alone were over $10,000 and funds raised for their care totaled $8,500...well short of what was needed. Will you join us and make a one-time donation? Better yet, will you become one of our wonderful monthly sponsors? (You can also check with your employer to see if they will match donations to 501(c)(3) charities and double your donation!)

The before and after photos of Cider from the hanging barn say it all. They tell the story of what we do. Please donate now, because your gift is truly the gift of life and we need your help!
