Join A Pony’s Paradise by becoming a sponsor to one of our special rescues. Your choice to sponsor will touch the lives of the horses we save and the people who adopt them.
Why Sponsor? Get involved without dirtying your boots! Not all people can adopt or keep horses, which is why sponsorship can provide a rewarding experience to any persons who wants to help save these beautiful creatures. By being a sponsor, you can direct your donation dollars to a special rescue of your choice to provide board, medical treatment, supplements, rehabilitation, and training.
Who Should Sponsor? Sponsorship is for any person who wants to help save horses or ponies and who can financially commit to providing a monthly donation for a rescue’s care. Maintaining and caring for a rescue is a serious endeavor, since rescues do not always arrive in the best of health and condition, they often require more care, feed supplements, and training than the average horse. Rescues may need months or, in very special cases, years to return to health and rebuild their trust in humans.
Sponsorships are amazing gifts to give a friend or family member who loves horses. Give a sponsorship as a gift for birthdays, holidays or any special occasion. Sponsoring a rescue is a great way for groups and organizations such as schools, girl scouts, church groups and clubs to give back to their community.
How much does it cost to keep a horse? Each horse or pony requires a different amount of care. We have put together a price chart to demonstrate the average cost of care at A Pony’s Paradise. All our rescues receive the best care possible; we do not skimp on vaccinations, supplements, quality hay and so on. This is why our horses and ponies stay healthy and why we must keep our numbers of rescues down. We prefer to give high quality care to a small number of rescues than minimal care to a large number.
Care Breakdown* per month:
*It is very important to note that the Care Breakdown for sponsorship DOES NOT include the fees for labor, utilities, farm maintenance, grooming supplies, or equipment. ** Veterinary services include farm calls, fecal analysis, vaccinations, Coggins tests, injuries, and anything else that the horse needs from the Vet.
The Impact: When you sponsor a horse or pony, the effects are felt throughout the whole rescue. Not only are you helping to maintain the highest level of care for your sponsored horse or pony, but you are also helping the rescue further its mission to improve the lives of equines in our world. Sponsorship helps free up funds so they can be put towards improving the rescues facilities, helping other equines in the area through community outreach, and provide care for new incoming rescues.
How much to give? The sponsorship program is a monthly program. To be a sponsor, you are asked to commit to a monthly donation. If special circumstances exist, they can be discussed during sign up. Please only take on a financial commitment that you can afford and only take on a sponsorship that you can commit to monthly.
You will get to choose the horse or pony that you would like to support as long as the horse is available. If the horse or pony is already fully sponsored, we ask that you select another horse or pony that could use the help. Once you have chosen your special rescue, you can choose how much you would like to make your monthly donation. You may commit to a donation between $20-$400 per month. Any amount is generous and greatly appreciated.
If you would like to fully sponsor one of our rescues for $400 a month, you have the option to make a one time payment for either 3($1,200), 6($2,400), 9($3,200), or 12($4,800) months.
Sponsors are welcome to schedule a visit with their horse/pony and provide them with a little love during barn hours.
Sponsors will receive a photo of their special rescue.
At the end of the year, sponsors will receive a letter totaling their donations for their taxes.
Additional perks will be given as they are made available.
