 *   100% of your donation is used towards the care of the animals!  *

Give Me A Chance Equine Rescue relies solely upon donations, adoption fees, sponsorships and fundraisers to support the animals in its care.

We supply all the equines with their basic daily needs including, feed, hay, vaccinations, medical supplies, farrier fees, Coggins testing, salt and supplements. Depending on the number of horses at the farm, the monthly feed bill averages $1,000.

Donations of grain, hay, and/or the money to support these rescued animals are always needed.

Please help us continue to rescue and care for these abused and neglected animals.


 Our Mission

The mission of Give Me A Chance Equine Rescue is to take in or rescue, then rehabilitate injured, neglected, seized or starved horses, mules and donkeys in our area. After they are adequately rehabilitated, gelded, if necessary, dewormed, vaccinated, Coggins tested and given a clean bill of health, we then put them up for adoption to find them forever homes. Once they find their new home and their space on the ranch becomes available, we start the process all over again for another animal in need.
