What 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 2013 the rescue used more than seventy five tons of hay at a cost of over $20,000. We have made arrangements with a farmer to have him store and supply us with hay over the winter. But we do need to pay for the hay every week when we pick up more each week. During the summer months we feed good quality local round bales supplemented with eastern Washington grass or alfalfa hay. If you have hay to donate, please contact us at: equineaid@comcast.net. We use some alfalfa for horses with certain needs, as well as a variety of grass hays. Our local feed store, Monroe Co-Op, 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!
