Summary

Our sanctuary recently took in 9 homeless horses. Although they have pens, we must build three shelters to shield them from the 110-degree heat & torrential downpours of the Arizona summer.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

As a horse sanctuary, we provide 'forever homes' to previously abandoned, neglect, injured or abused horses. Because of the recent difficult economy, more & more horses are finding themselves without homes. Over the past several months, we've taken in 9 new horses. Although they are currently living in big pens, those pens do not have shelter roofing. And, with the 110-degree temperatures & downpours of the Arizona summer, it's imperative we build those shelters within the next three months.

How will this project solve this problem?

The three 12'x20' shelters we will build will provide shade from the sun & shelter from the rain.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our plan is to add these 9 horses to our existing program that provides equine education to the area's elementary, middle & high school students. Further, the shelters we will build will ensure that those horses remain healthy & happy.
