Whether you are a novice and want to learn about horses from the ground up, or an experienced horse person that wants to share your time and expertise, we can always use your help! Cleaning, grooming and natural horsemanship type ground work are what we do most, but we also make time for play and, you might receive a special healing or message from some of our resident horses! If you have always wanted a horse for yourself, but never had the people or the place to let you learn, well here is your opportunity! You will learn first hand about the best holistic care, feeding and handling of horses, some with very special needs. Volunteering for a horse rescue is something that comes from the heart. You must have a love and passion for horses, since you may not realize how much time and dedication this requires. As you work with these wonderful animals, you will be surprised how much you learn about yourself. Being around horses is the best therapy in the world! We are happy to help students earn school credits and all ages are welcome. We encourage the parents of minors to observe or participate for at least a day with their children, so that they can feel comfortable and share their experience with them. A signed volunteer release form and your own medical insurance are required. Please visit the Volunteer Page on our website to schedule the dates you would like to volunteer. https://www.saffyresanctuary.org/volunteers You must attend an orientation day prior to scheduling a regular volunteer day. Thank you for your interest in our organization and we look forward to meeting you! https://youtu.be/ECkjrKnfXAw Hide full description

|About us||Saffyre Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation program that cares for horses that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. By allowing them to rediscover their true nature, we provide every opportunity for them to experience the possibility of enjoying a second career, or offer them a well deserved retirement due to soundness issues, age, or owner hardships. Saffyre Sanctuary assists homeless horses in finding their forever person. Through our networks, we successfully place them in homes that give them a new lease on life. If they are unable to physically perform in their new life path, we try to find other loving places where they can live in peace and comfort or serve as companion equines. Saffyre Sanctuary specializes in rescuing horses that would have no other chance of being saved. These horses are ones that have behavior issues, or are in need of a lengthy recovery and complex rehabilitation procedures. Our focus on quality, not quantity, enables us to give the horses in our care the very best chance of complete physical, mental and emotional recovery. Although Saffyre Sanctuary is an all-breed rescue, we have a special place in our hearts to the plight and distinctive needs of the Arabian breed. We are one of very few rescue organizations that works with Arabians, and maintains a following of Arabian enthusiasts who are familiar with their unique disposition. If you are looking to add an Arabian to your home, please consider adopting or fostering one of our loving horses. Our unique approach of equine care specializes in holistic nutrition, holistic rehabilitation, environmentally friendly equine housing, and green facility management.|
