GIVE! 2017 

LIVE NOW THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 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 2017 Give! website which is live November 1, 2017  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 that went 100% to the purchase and installation of six new horse shelters. This year our goal is to raise enough money to change out the existing wire fencing to a horse safe fence that the animals won't escape from or be injured by. Our minimum needed to safely fence three enclosures each about 1/2 acre in size is $35,000; to construct safe paddocks, corrals, and pastures on the entire 35 acres of our facility we need about $525,000. Click on the give! icon at right to donate.

Contact us if you would like more information or to schedule a time to tour Spirit Keeper. We welcome you to meet with us to see where your money is going. Click here to email us or use the information below.

Volunteer and Educational Opportunities

We welcome the Pikes Peak Community College Science of Zoo Keeping Technology 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!
  • Starting January 15, 2018 we will be starting an internship program and accepting working interns from Pikes Peak Community College.
