August 2017:

We are looking for sponsors/grant partners for our participation in the Colorado Indy Give 2017 campaign. We need one or more companies, organizations, or individuals to pledge a matching grant to us which we then have to match by raising funds from individual donors during the 2017Give! campaign. Each matching grant must be a minimum of $500 but can be up to any amount (millions would be awesome!). We must secure $2000 worth of matching grant pledges by September 1, 2017 to continue participation in the 2017Give!

Contact us ASAP if you can help! Click on the icon at right to email us or use the information below.

Thank You,

Volunteer and Educational Opportunities

We welcome the Pikes Peak Community College Zoo Keeping Science students to Spirit Keeper Equine. They spend several days each semester working and learning about husbandry and behavior of equids to prepare them for careers at zoos and sanctuaries. These facilities often house a number of equids such as Zebra, Wild Asses, Mongolian Wild Horses, and sometimes domestic horses. Learning to care for horses is helpful in the general care of most ungulates (hoof-stock) both domestic and wild; mammals that includes odd-toed ungulates like horses and rhinos, and even-toed ungulates like cattle, pigs, giraffes, camels, deer, and hippopotamuses. At Spirit Keeper students and volunteers get to have contact with horses, goats, and pigs!




MATCHING grant submissions due.

Spirit Keeper must obtain one or more matching grant commitments from organizations or individuals who will give us a grant of $500 or more if we are able to match it by the end of GIVE! We must secure a minimum of $2000 in matching grants by September 1 to remain participants.
