HOW WE WORK
We thrive because of our dedicated team of volunteers. We have two types.
But before we get to that, please know that we are not a rescue, we do not have any horses. We are an advocacy group protecting horses through intervention, education and legislation.
— Full Time Volunteers
By full time we mean in terms of commitment. These are volunteer staff who work 2 – 10 hours per week throughout the year who are either (a) assigned to a particular issue or (b) assigned to an ongoing campaign.
— Part Time Volunteers
These are volunteer staff who work when called on for short-term projects or help staff a campaign. Short-term projects can last anywhere from a few days to a few months.
— What You Need to Have
• Regular access to internet service and a personal email account you check frequently.
• Internet research and reporting skills.
• Good written and verbal skills.
• Experience in any area of social media is always an asset.
• The ability to complete assignments with minimal supervision.
• Commitment to the Fund’s philosophy and policies.
• Confident you can think on your feet and be cool under pressure.
• The steely mentality necessary to face horrific acts of cruelties to horses.
— What You Need to Know
You do not need to be an expert on horse protection and safety issues. We can teach you that.
You do not need previous experience with an organization like ours. Come as you are and bring what you have.
You do not need an in-depth knowledge of horses. You can learn that. However, any understanding you already have of horses and their needs will be very valuable.
What you need to have, more than anything else, is a deep love and respect for horses, dedicated to the betterment of their lives.
You also need an open heart and an open mind.
There’s nobody quite like us, who think about and approach issues the way we do. We are leaders — not followers.
Use our email form to contact us. Be sure to include your preferred telephone number and the best time to call. We will telephone you within 2-3 business days of receipt of your application.
