Special Horses Secret Santa for Rescue Horses

Special Horses is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to horse rescues in Texas.  For the past several years, the organization has run a Secret Santa for Rescues program in December.

This year,Special Horses asked five rescues to nominate up to five horses each who needed a Secret Santa.  The organizations provided a description of the horses and their wish list.   Secret Santas can be individuals, businesses or organizations who donate towards a particular horse’s wish list.  All funds raised will be used to purchase items on the wish list and send them to the rescue.

You can donate to one or more of the organizations participating this year.  Scroll through the horses, pick horses to sponsor by clicking on their name, click on the green box below the horse’s description, and fill in your donation information.  Donations are made in $5 increments.

From Special Horses, “Secret Santa for Horse Rescues is a fun and easy way in the spirit of the season to help several outstanding equine welfare organizations. Even a small donation of $5.00 can add up and make an enormous difference. And www.HorseLoverZ.com is once again generously willing to assist everyone in their Secret Santa endeavors!”

HorseLoverZ aids this endeavor by offering free shipping to the rescue groups as well as low prices on items, so your donations go further.

Since Special Horses is a nonprofit, donations are tax-deductible.    You can learn about the horses and make a donation by clicking here.

Pearland Pets provides assistance to the Pearland Animal Control and Adoption Center in Pearland, Texas.  The Wags to Riches Gala & Casino Night is their big annual fundraiser – and it is definitely a night of fun!  Funds from this event will be used to purchase a large trailer that can haul animals to adoption events where they can find wonderful, loving homes.  The trailer can also be used to evacuate pets out of the area, which is important since Pearland is on the Gulf Coast and is threatened by hurricanes.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are still available – check out the website to help the pets of Pearland!
