Southern Hope Animal Rescue & Education
Consider a sponsorship... a little bit can go a really long way!
Maddie's daily cost, just to keep her happy and healthy, is $12 each day.
Caroline's monthly cost is about $160.
... each equine in our care costs $5-12 per day just to provide feed, hay and medication (if needed). We usually have at least 12-15 horses, ponies, donkeys, etc. in our care! That's roughly $125 per day just to feed the horses! That doesn't include our operating expenses like electric, fuel, truck repair, insurance, and maintenance of the farm! Our monthly expenses can climb to $7500! And that's for the routine stuff. That doesn't include expansion projects or emergencies like a busted pipe or a sick horse.
Let's not forget:
Hoof trims (every 6 weeks) $35 per horse for usually 12-15 horses!
Annual preventative vet care minimum per horse $400 (vaccinations, deworming, dental care, Coggins)
Not to mention:
Dreaded emergency visits starting at $500!
We've averaged these expenses into different sponsorship levels for the equines in our care. You can sponsor a horse for just one month or continue each month until he/she is no longer in our care. You can also sponsor a farm friend like one of our sheep, goats, pigs and bunnies!
Full Horse Sponsor: $200 covers most care, hay, grain, farrier and basic vet
3/4 Horse Sponsor: $150 covers hay, grain, farrier
1/2 Horse Sponsor: $100 covers hay and grain
1/4 Horse Sponsor: $50 covers grain only
Farm Friend Sponsor: $25 covers all care for a farm friend
You're encouraged to come visit "your" sponsored horse as often as you like. Just make an appointment with us!
