The ReHorse Rescue Ranch is a bit like a regional “Humane Society” for horses.
Raquelle Van Vleck, Director of ReHorse Rescue Ranch, was KVML’s “Newsmaker of the Day”.
People who can’t afford their horses turn them over to the ReHorse Rescue Ranch, which feeds and houses them until a new home is found.
According to Van Vleck the ReHorse Rescue Ranch relies on volunteers and donations but is hoping to qualify for grant funding soon.
It costs $150 per day just to feed the horses. Additionally there are medical and other expenses.
Van Vleck said, “We typically have over 30 horses, in addition to two donkeys and a pot bellied pig. We’ve adopted out 21 horses since February of last year, we’ve taken on 57 and we’ve placed 39 horses before they’ve come into the rescue. ” Van Vleck added, “We appreciate any donations and volunteers, and if anyone wants to help, they can call me anytime.”
Donations are tax deductible. Sponsorships of horses (in addition to adoption) are available.
