How You Can Help

As a not-for-profit charity, Windamere Horse Haven relies on material support and financial assistance from its supporters.

To help us provide the rescue horses with the food, health care, training, and everyday comforts essential to their rehabilitation, please consider the following options. 


Donations may be deposited directly into our bank account through Givenow, which will automatically send you a tax receipt:



For a minimum of $10 per week you can sponsor one of our horses.

Your contributions will go towards the costs of feed, farrier costs, vet care, worming, chiro, rugs, etc.

As a sponsor, you will be encouraged to visit your sponsored horse and welcome to bring special treats for it to enjoy. You will also receive 3-monthly progress reports on your horse.

Some Permanent Residents can be sponsored but will not become available for adoption.
