When I first heard about H.O.M.E. I knew instantly that I wanted to help. My daughter & I started volunteering six months ago and we are so happy that we made the commitment, we look forward to each weeks visit and are always eager to see the improvements over time. It is so nice being with people who have such big hearts and those that give so much care in providing for the health and well being of each and every mini, donkey & mule . Knowing that together we are making life better for each of the minis that H.O.M.E has taken in is truly rewarding and a blessing.

I recently had the pleasure of finding H.O.M.E and being able to volunteer. You can tell everyone there truly enjoys what they do and all the sweet babies are cared for by many loving hearts. I really enjoy my visits there and I know anyone who visits will too!

My daughter and I have been volunteering at H.O.M.E for six months. It's an amazing place to be apart of. Working and being part of a awesome team of caring individuals is just so gratifying. Watching the mini's and donkeys blossom under all the care everyone gives, is just amazing to see. I just love when I'm there. It's my personal Zen...

The staff and volunteers put their heart and soul into caring for these minis. I have witnessed the hard work and dedication they have put in and the amazing transformation in the animals who have been lucky enough to be rescued by HOME.

Having been away from horses it was a life changing experience to be the first volunteer at this wonderful rescue. It is hard to describe the joy it is to start with an animal who may have been abused or is in bad shape and see them be rehabilitated and move to there forever home. This rescue is about doing always the best for every animal. But it's not only a H.O.M.E for them. It's also a home for all its volunteers.

As a volunteer and one of the founders of this amazing group, I have to say this organization brings so much love and joy not only to these animals but also to our community. It’s is our mission to treat the whole individual, mind and body. The people from our community that have joined us has made this organization into a family who cares for each other and also these amazing animals that come through our doors.

As one of the co-founders and volunteers from the start, I have to say that this is a place of pure joy. Sure it's work, sure there are hard days, but every single time I'm with the animals and the people, I'm stunned by the impact we are having on so many lives. Please come join us! Make a difference in a mini equines life today. Make a difference in your life today!

I have been a volunteer here for almost 6 months. I cannot tell you how rewarding it is to see these beautiful horses progress and begin to trust humans again. The process is long and difficult but worth every second spent with them. Their unconditional love brings so much joy. We at HOME genuinely care about our horses welfare, not just today, tomorrow, but for the life of the animal. We work together as a team for the best possible outcome. The more I learn the better I can help these sweet babies. It is a honor and a privilege to get to do this for them. It’s never been a job. When I’m not volunteering I’m constantly thinking about the horses and what I can do to better help them. HOME, is a great place, no matter the circumstances our horses always have HOME. Sometimes, sheep too. ❤️❤️❤️ Love you BAbaaaaa
