FAQsWhat is the Equine Aid policy on receiving horses, ponies and donkeys?
We are only able to accept horses as space and finances allow. We accept private surrenders and equines referred by animal control and veterinarians. We do require that a surrender form be completed and signed.
What is the greatest need for the animals at Equine Aid?
Hay, hands down! In 2010 our the rescue used more than one hundred tons of hay at a cost of over $20,000. We contract for up to 65 tons per year from a grower in Wilbur, WA who makes wonderful mixed grass hay. Buying in large quantities lowers our cost for very good hay to around $200 per ton. During the summer months we feed good quality local round bales supplemented with eastern Washington grass hay. If you have hay to donate, please contact us at: email@example.com. We use some alfalfa for horses with a specific need, as well as a variety of grass hays. Our local feed store, Monroe Farm and Feed, will also accept donations for us towards hay and feed. Their number is: 360-794-4663. Funds towards our ongoing challenge to purchase hay are so helpful and appreciated!
