A LOTTE OPPORTUNITY FOUNDATION

Yes, we are a horse rescue, but we are so much more! Our goal, beyond rescuing horses, is to allow underserved children the opportunity to learn about horses, as well as to learn how to ride them.

As a volunteer, we have many jobs. Number one is our care of the horses. This, of course, involves mucking stalls, feeding, watering and brushing. As we have 20 horses, this takes up a bit of time. Additionally, we have jobs upgrading out corrals. These jobs may sound physical (we like to call it horse boot camp) however, many of our volunteers are retirees and love the exercise!

We are also looking for a person familiar with grant writing. As a non-profit, we rely on donations to help support us. A grant writer would be a wonderful addition.

Shifts vary in time and we are flexible. We are hoping to find help during the week in the morning hours. However, that doesn't mean we can't work you in.

If interested, send an email and we will have an orientation soon. Thanks for reading this!

Mission Statement

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the purpose of rescuing and retraining unwanted or abandoned horses, while providing underserved and underpriviledged children with a chance to work with horses.

Description

The non-profit, ALOF, was founded in 2016. We currently have 16 horses. The owner, Lotte Swauger, has been riding since she was a little girl. Born and raised in Denmark, she came to America and started a riding school where she realized there was a need for a safe place for horses, and that there were a number of children who wanted to ride but simply didn't have the financial means to do so. So was born ALOF!
