DONATE TO OUR HORSES AND DONKEYS

 

WHY DONATE TO SKYDOG ?

Skydog Sanctuary is unlike most other rescues you donate to.  We know that there are dozens of pleas on Facebook and other social media asking you to donate to get horses out of kill pens or auctions.  You donate and then, for the most part, never know what happens to that horse you helped save.  Where did they end up?  Is the person who bought them good or bad to them.  Also some people sadly use social media to run scams using photos they find to fundraise for non-existent horses.

With Skydog Sanctuary you know exactly where your money is going.  It is going to horses rescued from abuse, neglect and awful situations and every single horse you have helped us rescue is right here where you brought it.   The money you donate goes to feed them, to our vet bills, to farrier costs and that is it.  We do not pay salaries out of your donations or upkeep on the ranch or personal expenses.  The money goes to the horses and only the horses. 

We do weekly updates on mustangs we have rescued.  Who their friends are, what they like and don't like and all these horses are living out their lives here and afforded the highest care and attention to their special needs and wants.  You can write to us at any time for an update and a post about a horse you are following and haven't seen for a while and want more photographs of.  

For anyone who says that horses need a job.  Ours have a truly important one. 

Every horse here is raising awareness for all the other horses not so fortunate, sitting in Kill Pens, running through auctions or languishing in BLM short and long term holding.  Each horse tells a story of a different situation that needs addressing to help make sure less horses end up abandoned or abused.  

Obviously to keep sanctuaries like this alive and kicking we always need help but rest assured even a regular monthly donation of a few dollars helps us with our hay and feed bill as our horses never stop eating - especially during the winter months.

We run regular fundraisers for hay or to save a particular horse in need and any excess money is rolled over into the general fund to be used to feed and care for the horses we have saved.  All the donations we get go directly to the horses and we are very proud to say that.

Our older and special needs horses need your help

With pleading Facebook fundraisers hitting our social media feeds every day illustrated with the tragic photographs of horses needing rescue from feedlots and kill pens it is easy to forget where a lot of those horses end up and that they need aftercare and rehab donations.  Sanctuaries like Skydog have the responsibility to provide care and refuge forever for the horses we take in.  It is solely with the help of amazing donors that Skydog Sanctuary is able to give a safe and loving home to these beautiful wild horses and burros who were first ripped from their homes, separated from their families and then ended up in terrible situations from which they were rescued.  Skydog has always done our best to reunite family bands, adopt mares and foals together, or bring back bonded horses who were separated from their friends of many years.  Many of the wild horses and burros here are in their senior years and our "special needs and feeds" population keeps growing!  As the horses age we work alongside our vet team to provide first class preventative care (dental, worming, supplements) so the horses have quality of life and live into their 30's as they would in the wild.

WINTER HAY FUND

FILL THE SHEDS !! 

Sanctuary is forever: we need lots of hay for the winter

When we moved up to Oregon we thought it was a great decision due to the fact that hay is so much cheaper as it is grown all around the ranch and our nearest town is actually named Alfalfa !  One thing we did not realise is that we would have to feed triple the amount during the winter due to the extreme cold temperatures overnight.  Sometimes it is as low as minus 20 so the horses need something to chew on all night to keep their body temperatures up so they won't shiver and start losing weight.  We have a great local blue grass that we throw now during winter months which is much cheaper than orchard hay or alfalfa so we supplement the horses regular feed with that hay during the winter months.  Please help us keep our hay sheds full for winter.
