Morning Feeding

Description

Help SHARE help horses by assisting us with our morning chores. Every morning we refill waters and distribute hay and grain to approximately 35 rescue horses awaiting adoption, being rehabilitated, or in sanctuary care. After the horses have eaten, we walk them outside to their pastures and turn-outs so they can spend the day outside. We look to get 1 person per day of the week, for example, volunteer to help with our Monday morning feedings. We also have an afternoon feeding which is a separate opportunity. We try to reach out to new volunteers.  If interested in volunteering, email Heide at heidefogal@aol.com or call Kim at 217-649-3232.

Final Date: 

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 8:30am
