Helping to secure the futures of the Turning For Home retirees is easy! If adopting one of our beautiful horses is not in your plans, then there are many other ways in which you can support our efforts.
1) DONATE BY CHECK OR PAYPAL:
$500 will pay for surgery to remove chips in a knee or ankle, or put screws into a fracture. These surgeries, done for us at cost, help insure a horse's soundness for a new career as a pleasure, dressage or show horse.
$250 will pay for one month of feed, hay or lush pasture, rehabilitation or reschooling, and all the TLC a horse can handle.
$100 will help pay for new shoes, or a set of Spring or Fall shots.
$50 helps pay shipping from Philadelphia Park to retirement!
$25 is a year's worth of worming medicine.

3) CHECK OUT OUR “AVAILABLE HORSES” PAGES FOR THOSE WHO NEED SPONSORS.
Many of our horses come to us with injuries that will only allow them to be comfortable as companion horses, or pasture pals, which are much more difficult to find homes for in this economy. A monthly donation of at least $200 for one year or more will allow you to sponsor one of these very deserving retirees. A sponsor is recognized on our website and in the PTHA Newsletter, and can receive updates and photos of each horse. Sponsorships are a perfect gift for your animal loving friends at Christmastime or on birthdays. TURNING FOR HOME IS A 501 c 3 NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION.
ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE

Our thanks to Dr. Patty Hogan, who performed surgery on the handsome grey so that he could go on to a new career as a show horse.
