Welcome to the North American Horse Rescue Volunteer Page. Here are NAHR we are constantly in need of people willing to help us with the many things around here, may it be just an occasional weeekend-thing, or an everyday commitment. We already have a staff of live-in people at the NAHR Locations that we lend them our fascilities for their training/breeding programs in return for them to excersize and take care of the NAHR horses and all of the maintenance work for the fences and such. Below is a list of jobs that are needed right now.
Chelsea Runco, Micheala (Micky) Herdandez, Paul Cynotorby, Jose Nunez - Norco Division
Devin Duvall, Lindsey Thompson, Chris West, Billy Suffel - Virginia Division
Chelsea Cutright, Katie Rankin, Andrew Hurtz, Travis King - Canadian Division
Ashley Tift, Sonya Silvas, Jose Burk, Juan Burk - Mexican Division
Temporary Stabling -
If you would like to volunteer your farm to be used as a place where horses go until they get rides to one of the NAHR divisions, this would be a great help. We constantly find horses that are going to go to slaughter and in order to save them, we'd need to take them home right away. A lot of those times we cant find any transportation for the horses to be taken to one of the NAHR locations. Your farm would be used as a quick place to take the horse for a day or so until we find a truck and trailer to bring the horses to NAHR. You would need to have a seperate barn for these horses that is away from your horses so that anything these horses might bring with them wont be transferred to your horses. Farms like these would be a great help to us and they would save many horse's lives. (Note: Obviously, farms that are close to any of our locations wont be needed.)
Horse Scouts -
Horse Scouts are people who go around and look for horses that need to find homes fast. You must not have a weak heart because most of the horses you find will be in very poor shape. Another thing you might have to do is visit various slaughter houses looking for horses that are still alive. This is a VERY heartwrenching sight to see. A lot of times the meat people wont sell you the horses, and this will really put you in the downspirits. Slaughter House owners also usually try to get you to see the dead horses just for the fun of it, its awful. *Most needed, its hard for one person to find all the needful horses in North America!
Volunteer Vet -
A vet is needed to check over some of the horses with more serious cases. Me and my staff can usually take care of simple things, but there is always a chance a horse will come in that has a bad case of something that cant be cured by us, and then we will bring him to you.
