We have donated of pastures to this charity for 5 yrs. Paws Ranch cuts and bales hay for the rescues and the hay bank. This such a worth wild cause. The hay we donate off our pasture makes us happy we can contribute to a wonderful rescue. You don't need money to help donate something you can help the rescue with.

I have volunteered at Paws Ranch Equine Rescue a few times. It is absolutely amazing what Delores and Heather do on a daily basis. While helping out you can see all the love first hand. These horses have a new start and know what love really is. The horses look great and they are happy. The rescue it's self is always clean and organized. I love Miles. If looking for a horse to adopt you won't be disappointed!

I called to find out about volunteer services today and I was able to obtain the information I requested. Very polite and knowledgeable. I an scheduled for a volunteer orientation day next week. So excited to find them. I just moved to North Carolina and can't wait to start. Going on Tuesday for a tour and see the facility. Drove by today looks very pleasant and a lot of pastures. I see a horse I might want to work with.

I have my grandchildren for the holidays. Every time I call the staff at Paws Ranch Equine Rescue take time out for my grand kids letting them help feed and brush the horses. They go home feeling good by volunteering their time. I wish there would be more place to taken kids free of charge while they learn.

My beloved horse KODA came from PRERI.I am adopting a beautiful paint gelding from there now. I am so glad to see a rescue that takes in the broken,worn and unrideable horses. I love my unrideable KODA and think the world would be a lesser place without his nose to kiss. Think about opening your heart to an equine best friend I would give Delores and PRERI a zillion dollars if I had it.

My 5 year old son and 2 year old daughter absolutely loves Paws Ranch and talk about going there all the time. We have done the family campout, Spring Fling and Family Farm Days. All are really well run, very engaging for the children and the location is spectacular. My kids love grooming and petting the friendly ponies, making bread, activities and sitting by the campfire at the campout during Farm Days. If we could go every weekend, we would!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Volunteer and bring my kids more.
