The Help a Horse Day grant contest started on April 26, 2018 and runs through June 2018. It focuses on finding good homes for at-risk horses.  Please help us win a grant for GER. In all there are $110,000 in grant prizes! We will be judged on the total number of adoptions and commitments to adopt, the dollar value of donations, our adoption campaign, and our adoption video.

GER is kicking off Help A Horse Day with a Shipping Scholarship Fund. Funds raised will be used to assist horse owners in financial need to help pay for shipping to the free gelding clinic GER is hosting this fall. It will cover the cost of shipping seizure horses as well as owner surrender horses to the rescue. Our hope is that we will be able to get these owners and horses the assistance they need before they end up at auction. We're hoping to raise $5000 by the end of May.
