SOS - Support Our Seniors

You can support the rehabilitation and ongoing care of senior horses like Lizzie in many ways:


Look HERE to see if you have "Things We Can Use."

Send TREES the Proof of Purchase seals from Triple Crown, Reliance and Legends feed bags. Depending on formula, we can redeem them for 10 -25 cents each.
TREES, PO Box 2260, Spotsylvania, VA 22553

Offer a caring home to a horse who has served his owners long and well, but is no longer considered "valuable" enough to warrant further investment by those owners.

Help to educate owners struggling with their Equine Elders' changing needs.

Participate, with your Elders, in local shows, parades, and other events to demonstrate that a horse's abilities cannot be judged based solely on chronological age.

Donate gently used tack which we can sell through local consignment shops to raise funds.

Donate gently used household items for Yard Sales.

Make a tax-deductible contribution to Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary.
