Location: Emmett, MI
Year established: 2014
Staff/volunteers/foster homes: “We are an all-volunteer organization consisting of three board members, two of whom are full-time staff ,” says president and founder Tammie Miller. “Since we are a relatively new organization we currently have only a few part-time volunteers but would love to have more!”
Types of animals they work with: Miniature horses.
Fundraising projects: “We operate solely on donations. To aid in our fundraising efforts we participate in the Amazon Smile program and Kroger Community Rewards where a percentage of qualifying purchases are donated to our organization. We also carry a line of Red Haute Horse brand halters in many designs with all proceeds to benefit the horses in our care. We are currently holding an online Yankee Candle fundraiser with 40% of sales donated directly to our organization. We have a sponsorship program, which allows donors to select one of our horses to sponsor monthly for a low monthly fee or an amount of their choice.”
Favorite rescue story: “In late January 2014 we were alerted to an urgent situation in Missouri involving several minis and ponies that had been purchased from a feedlot by a kill buyer. We only had photos and vague descriptions to go on, provided by a kindhearted woman trying diligently to raise bail and find homes before their fate was sealed and they were headed to Mexico. We chose a very emaciated gelding and a pint-sized filly whose ages were unknown to us at the time. Both horses had bad legs and horribly neglected hooves.
“After only three months in our care, both horses, now known and loved by many as Cooper and Callie, are thriving. Although both still have a long road to recovery, they have been given a second chance for a happily ever after.”
