We want to help horse owners keep their horses!


We know that sometimes, through no fault of their own, horse owner’s face difficulties and may need some temporary help to get through a health or financial crisis.  With the recent lockdowns of businesses, many people are struggling with day to day expenses for their families. This leaves no room in the budget for their equines.

Sixteen Hands Horse Sanctuary would like for all horses to stay with their owners if possible and live a happy and healthy life with their family.  To that end we have created the “HAY IS FOR HORSES” safety net program to help in these situations.

You can apply for assistance with grain, hay, dental care, hoof care, gelding services and emergency medical treatments.  If necessary, we can also help with humane euthanasia expenses.

Our funds are limited so this is done on a case by case basis.
