Care For The Horses would not exist without its dedicated volunteers. In fact, from fundraising to grounds keeping to working directly with the horses CFH is run entirely by volunteers. If you are interested in helping we have many opportunities for you!
CFH holds a yard sale every May and October to raise funds that support our program. Volunteers are needed to transport items from our donors to our storage units at Garden Canyon U-Store It, as well as to price items and to set up and dismantle the sales area.
If you enjoy yard work and would like to support a good cause, we need you! Tasks include mowing the grass, cutting down brush that grows up around the electric fencing, and providing general grounds keeping at our facility located at 9001 E. Canada Drive, just east of Moson Road. You can work during the week or on the weekend, whatever best suits your schedule. For more information please call Ann Jost at 520-378-0896 to schedule a time.
Working With the Horses
There are times when our facility becomes over loaded with horses. During those busy times volunteers are needed to help with giving baths, hand walking the horses or assisting with their veterinary care. Working with the horses and giving them some needed TLC can be very rewarding.
Before helping with the horses volunteers are required to complete a short course to become certified in working in and around horses that have been abused or starved. The training is free and is offered through Care For The Horses. You will learn how to: take a horse’s vital signs, recognize body language that indicates a horse is ill, properly feed horses that have been starved, and how to see things from a horse’s point of view.
Children under the age of 18 are not able to work directly with the horses due to liability issues.
Serving on the Board of Directors
Would you like to become more deeply involved in CFH? Our board of directors oversees the program and ensure that its goals are being achieved. Board members also review each horse’s case and help decide the best avenue for its rehabilitation. We welcome your participation!
