This year has been so hard for the horsepeople in our communities and harder for the horses. SAFER has been extremely busy with Feed Assistance, Rehoming and counseling folks on what their options might be in these times. We are here in the fires aftermath when horsefolk are grieving their losses and hard decisions have to be made.

We have been providing for the horse community now for 13 years. SAFER may not make it through Covid though. Donations are very scarce and fundraising must be all online.

We have been so very honored to serve these years and pleased with the results we still see in our numerous well cared for adoptees. We know that money is scarce and there are many needful orgs asking for it.

If you feel we are an asset, please consider helping SAFER continue for another year of service.
