How You Can Help
Equine Rescue (FRER) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working
to end the abuse and neglect of horses. We need your help. Here are
some ways you can help us meet our goals:
Adopt a horse
Sponsor a horse
Fulfill a special needs wish
Make a direct tax
Volunteer your time
Purchase FRER logo shirts
certificates from Farmer Jimís Feed
Donate horse care and tack
items directly to FRER
Adopt a horse:
The majority of horses rescued by FRER become
available for adoption to permanent, loving, and suitable homes.
Adoptive homes must be within a 3-4 hour drive of Colorado Springs
as Front Range provides a pre-adoption site visit and follow up to
all adoptions. Please go to our
Adopt A Horse web page for adoption details.
Sponsor a horse:
Front Range Equine Rescue encourages individuals
to sponsor a rescue horse during its rehabilitation phase. Sponsors
are asked to provide a minimum of $25 per month (tax deductible) to
help offset some of the expenses incurred with horse care. A brief
bio and photo are sent to the sponsor and if sponsors live around
the Black Forest area, they can arrange to visit their sponsored
horse. We also welcome out of town sponsors to arrange a visit when
they plan to travel in the Colorado Springs/Denver area.
Fulfill a Special Needs Wish:
the "Make the Difference Network" you can help make FRER's wishes
come true. Use your credit card to make a donation to one or several
of the wishes. Donations are tax deductible. The site is secure and
100% of your donation comes to us. Below are our twelve wishes.
