Want to Help?
There are several ways to help Second Chance:
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Sometimes volunteer spots with the horses become available with one of our Foster Carers. But even if they are not we still need volunteers! Vollies help us at events, fundraisers, putting out notices and flyers in their area, sausage sizzles, and much more.
Volunteers may choose to just donate a little time when we are in their area or they may choose to donate a lot of time with more active roles in our Admin or Management duties. You don't need to be horsey to volunteer.
Some volunteers with a lot of horse experience may choose to help us on rescues, or running horses to vet appointments or new foster homes etc.
JOIN AS A MEMBER
Just by being a member you can help us. Your membership fee goes toward helping us run SC and afford our Admin fees like printing, sending post, purchasing office equipment, toward the phone bill and other complete necessities.
As a member you may also attend meetings, join the committee, vote at the Annual General Meeting and you may also have ideas or other ways to contribute. Even if you live many kilometers away from us, you may be able to assist in your town!
You could recruit more members in your area, both horsey and non, and you could speak to your local paper about an article on Second Chance and our aims. Just by doing this could get SC more support, donations and potentially build up a SC support network in your area.
Would your business or company like to support us? Please contact us for more information. You could choose to donate a small percentage of profits, or perhaps to sponsor a particular horse during its rehabilitation, or perhaps your company is interested in making a larger, one off donation.
Speak to us about how we thank our Corporate Sponsors.
FOSTERING OR ADOPTING
It takes a special sort of horse person to Adopt or Foster through Second Chance. If you have a safe place to keep a horse or pony, and adequate knowledge to care for one please contact us!
SPONSORING A HORSE OR PONY
You, your family, group, school or club could support a horse or a pony in need. For a modest monthly contribution you could follow a rescue through their rehabilitation, sharing their set-backs, triumphs and finding a loving home of their own.
