Starting November 1, 2017

We are seeking donors for our participation in the Colorado Indy Give 2017 campaign. We need individuals, companies, organizations, or clubs to donate via the 2017Give! website which will be live starting November 1, 2017 and stay up through December 31, 2017. You may also mail-in donations using a printed form which Give! can provide. Last year we were able to raise $23,415 which went 100% to the purchase and installation of six new horse shelters. This year our goal is to raise enough to change out the existing wire fencing to a horse safe fence that the animals won't escape from or be injured by. We are testing materials and obtaining estimates and will have a goal amount posted by the start of the campaign

Contact us if you would like more information or to schedule a time to tour Spirit Keeper and meet with us to see where your money is going. Click on the icon at right to email us or use the information below.

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. Examples of odd-toed ungulates (Perissodactyls) are horses, tapirs, and rhinos. Even-toed ungulates (Artiodactyls) are a mammals such as cattle, pigs, giraffes, camels, deer, and hippopotamuses. 

At Spirit Keeper students and volunteers get to have contact with horses, goats, and pigs!




Fence Testing Necessary!

Spirit Keeper is seeking to install at least three different test corrals with the types of fencing we are considering for installation with our Indy Give 2017 donations. The companies will not donate the materials for us to test the various safe horse fencing types with some of our special needs horses and prior to the start of GIVE! on November 1, 2017. We must test the fencing options to see what will work for our blind, elderly, and disabled horses before we commit to large volume purchases following GIVE! We are seeking $3800 to install the test pens/corrals. DONATE NOW!
