Program: School Visit

Budget:
$3,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Children Only (5 - 14 years)

Program Description:

The HfH philosophy is based on the belief that since people have domesticated horses, people must take full responsibility for their lives. HfH has designed programs that help horses resume an active and productive life, based on the knowledge that all horses have needs in common and that each horse will have certain special needs. While many rescued or surrendered horses enjoy human contact and interaction, some will never know trust. Those, as all horses, deserve to live and will be treated with the respect and kindness that was denied them before their rescue. We identify those special horses who can return to productive work as therapy horses for children and adults. We also focus on bringing young people into the circle of volunteers. Our programs are conducted on the ranch and in the community, enabling us to use horses to help people better understand themselves. Following is a brief list of our programs, which have a great capacity for development and expansion: Sanctuary Surrenders: We work with people on a weekly basis to help them determine the best solutions for their horses when they no longer have the resources, time or money to properly care for their horses. When feasible, we accept the horse as a sanctuary surrender, and receive the same level of care as the rest of the horses. Sanctuary surrenders ideally are provided for through an endowment fund or surrender fee. Our current cost factor for each horse is $2,400 per year, not including serious medical problems. Community Outreach: Habitat For Horses is involved in a number of programs for bringing horses to schools, churches, rest homes, retirement homes, hospitals and other locations. Organizations are invited to our ranch for general tours and community functions. We have several ideal horses that become the main attraction during our visits to local schools to talk with children about animal abuse and human violence. Horsemanship Classes: This popular class is a highly recommended course on the basics of horse care designed for those who want to volunteer at HfH, those who are thinking of buying or adopting a horse or people who simply want to learn more about horses through an intense "hands-on" experience. Investigation and Seizure: We work closely with local law enforcement to investigate complaints, provide aid and direction in report gathering and obtaining seizure orders, transport animals to a safe location, provide photographs, expert veterinarian, farrier and horse-professional testimony and presentation in court. Emergency Response: Working closely with State and Federal Officials, we respond to disasters from hurricanes to wildfires, providing complete equine services.

Program Long-Term Success:

Currently we have 325 equine within our organization and have adopted over 1,000 since our beginning. Lone Star Equine Rescue merged with Habitat for Horses, making HfH the largest equine organization of our type in the US.

Program: Law Enforcement Education

Budget:
$1,500
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Adults

Program Description:

We educate law enforcement on the proper procedures of responding to animal cruelty reports and how to judge the condition of a horse.

Program Long-Term Success:

By educating our law enforcement officers, we have seen an increase in more knowledgeable equine assessment and  in turn a more educated public.

Program Short-Term Success:

Less frustration by law enforcement and the public at large when a cruelty sighting is reported.

Program Success Monitored by:

Office staff

Program Success Examples:

A call was received by our local Sheriff and he sent a deputy to the scene to determine the nature of the complaint about a skinny horse. After talking with the horse owner, it was determined that the horse was not only elderly, but had just been rescued by this owner and was being well cared for. The officer was able to share this with the concerned party and another tradgedy was avoided.

Program: Rehabilitation of Abused/Neglected Animals

Budget:
$180,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Adults

Program Description:

The largest part of our budget is on the rehabilitation of equine, returning them to a state of health so they may be adopted out to new homes. While the target population is adult, the horse brings the family unit, including children,together.

Program Description:

Habitat for Horses works closely with a large number of law enforcement agencies to provive assistance in cases of animal cruelty involving equine. We not only assist in the seizure but in the documentation and court presentation should a seizure be needed. Our first goal is not to seize, but to provide the current owner with the knowledge and tools necessary to maintain his equine in a satisfactory state of health.
