My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Throwaway Ponies, Farmersville, TX, USA
I began volunteering with Throwaway Ponies March 2012. I knew when I quit working that I wanted to "give back" somewhere . I love horses and people , so I began praying for a perfect place that met my passions. I met with Karen, and felt at home instantly. Throwaway Ponies is family owned and every one that comes out soon becomes part of this family. Volunteers can choose from many areas of service , from scooping poop to computer work. Our mission is to rehab horses and heal hearts. We take in neglected horses , rehab them , then put them up for foster care or adoption. We provide a safe friendly place for people to find comfort and peace while working with the horses within their comfort level. It is so rewarding to see the horses improve along with the handlers and then to see the horses get to go to a forever home. I am very thankful to TaPs for being there for the community , serving a need for both equine and us humans.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can't think of any urgent changes. We are totally non-profit, we rely on volunteers for everything, from the ground up, barn work to fund raising. So we could use some help at getting large funding so we could have more financial stability and possibly buy land that could handle the horses better.
