see our list below!
If you would like to post our brochures and information fliers at your
business, or you can help with delivering these fliers, let us know!

ways you can donate! You can donate money, time, experience, and horse

about what happens to horses, and if you can help us find resources, it
would greatly help our cause!

Volunteers are an essential
necessity to Friends of Ferdinand. They have many different lifestyles
and careers, yet they contribute any way they can, in any form they can.
The thing they all share in common is a desire to care and love horses.
Duties range from office work to working with the horses.
There is always room for
anyone interested in volunteering, for as little or as much as you can give.
It may be a one time venture, or a few hours a week. We are always in
search of grant writers, fundraisers, advertising, and training. If
you are interested, please download our
volunteer form! Please send the form by email or mail to our
Things that we always need
are people to man information booths at local fairs, speaking volunteers,
people to help move horses with trailers, those who can check on potential
fosters and adopters, foster homes, and to do follow up barn checks, as well
as organizing mail packs, etc. Also, we welcome volunteering from vets
and tack and feed shops. If you have an idea for volunteering, please
