Volunteer!

Thank you for your interest in supporting Mustangs to the Rescue! Mustangs to the Rescue is a community supported organization and our Crew Members are the heart of our organization; without their dedication, loyalty and hard work, it would not be possible for us to do what we do. There are many reasons why people volunteer with us, but all provide the chance to join a thriving, nurturing community whose goal is to positively impact the lives of as many horses as humanely possible. There are few things as rewarding as helping a previously abuse or neglected horse find a loving new home. When you volunteer at Mustangs to the Rescue, you make a difference for the horses in our care - whether you clean their paddock or organize a fundraiser. You will find that volunteering is hard work, but fun and very rewarding. It's a great way to make an impact on our community and the lives of thousands of horses and people. Most crew member opportunities at  Mustangs to the Rescue do not require special skills. We provide the necessary training and guidance to make your volunteer experience safe and enjoyable. The most important skills you need to be a volunteer are commitment, love and respect for animals and each other. Our volunteer Crew Members serve a vital role in the success of Mustangs to the Rescue. A successful equine rescue and equine learning program requires a team effort and a great deal of hard work from all involved. As a volunteer, your support and dedication enable horses to be saved from abuse and neglect and be rehabilitated and retrained on their way to safe and secure homes. Questions about volunteering at Mustangs to the Rescue: Contact us at info@MustangsToTheRescue.org   All crew members must sign Mustangs To The Rescue’s liability release form in person.  Parents and legal guardians must sign waivers on behalf of their children.
