Since its founding, Days End Farm Horse Rescue (DEFHR) has gone from a small non-profit sheltering a few horses to a full-scale, well respected national rescue and rehabilitation facility sheltering 120 to 150 horses annually; this success would not have been possible without the hard work of many dedicated volunteers.

Volunteers provide over 55,000 hours of service each year helping to rescue and rehabilitate horses, educating the community about equine abuse and neglect, and raising funds to provide for future horses in need. DEFHR offers a wide range of volunteer options, giving volunteers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of abused and neglected horses.

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old, unless accompanied by a parent.
