Evening feeders needed four nights every week. Pick one day, two or more. Evening feed takes about one hour to feed and water the horses (with a hose) depending on the number of horses at the farm.
Do you have experience driving a tractor? A bobcat or skidloader? maybe a zero turn lawnmower? We have a need for many different tasks at the rescue farm.
Do you have any skills for carpentry or repairing electric fence? We have a vehicle to drive around the farm to make repairs and check on everything.
We are in a major reorganization of the farm and repairing things that have been here for over 20 years. The horses come to us for care and while that has always been our top prioroty, it is also past time to upgrade and get things done.
Want to work around the horses and learn how to properly care for them? We have trained many volunteers over the last 22 years – maybe its your turn now!
We have all age groups working even under 16, but that is a case by case situation and those under 18 are on a trial basis.
Schedule a time to visit and see if you want to join our volunteer crew!

I can only thank the people that were here and donating not only their time but so much more! The family with 5 children ages “almost” 5 and up! Bringing others to check out the wind damage and being prepared to fix the damage. Thank you. The mom and 5 children-wow not only are your children ALL sweet and polite, they worked as hard as the adults!! Thank you to my friends/family Machel and her 2 girls, Mel and Brenda you are life savers, to Christa who has been here even with her broken finger. We missed Chloe so much this week but she deserves to go with her family on vacation-she is 14 and here every weekend and sometimes more. To Pat, who many don’t realize that without him the horses would not get fed and cared for daily. To Casey at Engineering Aggregates Corp in Logansport who has helped us with both gravel for the drive and lime to fix stalls. And to Dalton Gates for hauling all the stone and lime. To Mickey for the donation of 100 bales of beautiful hay, we were out and feeding soaked hay cubes.
That was just Saturday, do you have a free day? We train volunteers every other Saturday when we have our seasoned volunteers here, If you think you could work not just around horses, but on a farm to help a Rescue that saves Horses, schedule a time, we need MORE trained volunteers. We do have Donna, who feeds one morning every week, which gives Pat a morning off, we have Christa who feeds every other Saturday and Mel who feeds every other weekend – and we have others that feed other days, but if we have any type of emergencies, there are very few people that are close, have a truck, etc. .
The saying “It takes a village…” means so much to the horses and volunteers at Indiana Horse Rescue. We do NOT receive any State or County funding, everything we do depends on donations and volunteers.
Right now are housing, feeding and caring for 24 horses; we currently have 10 horses on a waiting list wanting to come in to the rescue. Where is the hay going to come from? Where are the funds to purchase hay going to come from? Not only do we need your help – these horses need homes to call their own.
As Director -no, I don’t get paid either!- I am worried about what this fall and winter will bring. We have never turned away any horse from law enforcement or animal control in 21 years, can you help us continue our mission?
Please donate if you can.
