Society for Hooved Animals' Rescue and Emergency

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 110 people are interested

Help feed, water, groom and care for horses. It doesn't take any special skill to help, just a love of animals. If you know how to "break" or train horses, you can work with some of our more challenging residents, and we are also looking for horse experienced foster homes. But as long as you're not afraid of a little physical labor, there's a place for you. In our current economy, we're seeing more horses than ever who are starving or neglected. Our barns are bursting with horses who need some TLC.

We are seeking people to assist with feeding the horses in the mornings (6-9 am) and afternoons (around 4:30-6:30) every day of the week. We use LotsaHelpingHands.com to organize our volunteers. Register at that site or contact us!

We also welcome anyone with fundraising ideas, carpentry, and other property maintenance skills or a willingness to learn. With over 30 horses in the rescue, we are constantly maintaining fence and other buildings to continue to provide a safe environment. Please contact if there's any way you think you could help!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.

Description

SHARE is a nonprofit humane society in the Champaign area. We have investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois.

At SHARE, our goal is to help equines trapped in situations of abuse and starvation. It is also our wish as well to educate horse owners on how to properly care for their horses.

The humane society offers to help educate owners on the proper daily care and maintenance; vetting and hoof care as well as nutrition and emergencies. The society also rescues severely neglected horses and provides rehabilitation services and placement through adoption.

This is not an easy task; many volunteers are needed in order to provide this care and support. There are many people who are not aware of hooved animals that are abused and neglected. SHARE would like to inform people about this.
