Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary is unable to admit horses into our sanctuary program at this time due to limited resources and lack of sufficient funding. Current resources and funds are being used to provide hay/feed, veterinary services, hoof care, and dental care to maintain our population of 47 horses. We ARE still providing special needs boarding, rehoming assistance, training, and educational programs. If you would like to help we accept donations of equipment, feed, hay, and services. Financial donations may be made via PayPal Giving, Facebook, GoFundMe, Benevity, or direct mail. You may also choose us as your eBay, Good Search, or Amazon Smile charity!

Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary is committed to caring for special needs equines at risk of being neglected, sold at auction, sold into the slaughter industry, or euthanized needlessly. We provide these horses with a safe place to live out the rest of their lives. Spirit Keeper provides the veterinary care, dental care, hoof care, individualized nutrition, enrichment, and psychological support needed to ensure each animal experiences comfort and wellness. We offer community education classes, workshops, and clinics in science-based animal husbandry and training, basic equine behavior and handling, and animal emergency preparedness. We have a trainer on our board who provides riding lessons and horse training on a limited basis with monies raised going directly to the care of our resident equines.

Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary provides a safe environment and comprehensive care for at-risk equines. These are horses in danger of slaughter, euthanasia, abuse, and neglect. Our resident horses may be elderly, have special nutritional requirements, chronic medical conditions, physical disabilities, psychological trauma, or behavioral issues. Their conditions typically prevent them from being ridden or "wanted" by certain individuals and make them unadoptable by rescue organizations; however, these horses may still enjoy an excellent quality of life when properly loved and cared for.
Spirit Keeper Equine provides special needs care, training, rehabilitation, and sanctuary for other animal species on a case by case basis. We are a Rocky Mountain Collie-Sheltie Rescue approved foster home. We assist by providing transport for collies and occasionally other animals from their current location to an approved rescue facility. We currently provide a home or foster care and/or training to potbelly pigs, dogs, cats, snakes, and a chicken.
