LRTC is involved in a whole variety of wild horse and burro related activities. What we accomplish is the result of the support and participation of many people. Whether it involves preserving horses and burros on the range, rescuing injured and orphaned horses, helping ensure successful horse and burro adoptions or advocating for wild horses and burros, it is "people power" that gets the job done.
YOU CAN HELP!
Whether volunteers are out on the range helping preserve horses and burros, helping ensure safe and fulfilling adoptions for those animals that are brought in, providing Foster care for horses, helping with information booths and fundraising, or helping distribute accurate and useful information from their home computers, we and other groups like us could not function without the help of volunteers.
- Sponsor a Horse
We hold a number of horses and occasionally burros for adoption. We try to match the animals with compatible adopters so that both the adopter and animal have a good adoption experience. Supporters who help us with the costs of holding these animals allow us to be more careful about where the horses are placed when they do get adopted.
- Be a Foster Caregiver
When a Foster caregiver can provide individual attention to a horse or burro, the adoption process is often much less stressful to that animal. Plus Foster caregiving relieves some of the burden on the volunteers at the rescue corrals.
- Provide Financial Support
LRTC is an all-volunteer organization but we have significant expenses involved with rehabilitating orphan foals and injured horses, holding horses for adoption and for the projects that we undertake out on the range designed to prevent horses from being rounded up. While we try to respond to every need, the extent of our involvement depends a great deal on our ability to pay for the supplies and equipment necessary to get the job done.
- Help Fundraise
If you have ideas help fundraise for a particular project or for the organization in general, we're always looking for folks who can organize such activities. Most of the volunteers are "boots on the ground" working on the range, with animals and on issues, so we don't have a great deal of time left to develop fundraising projects. If that's your strength, let us know!
