DONATIONS MADE TO IDAHO HORSE RESCUE ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
The fastest way to help is to donate money. IHR constantly receives calls and emails about horses in need of rescue; many are in dire condition and need immediate care.
IHR is funded entirely by individual donations, private and corporate trusts, and charitable foundations. It costs a great deal of money to rescue these horses, and we depend on the generosity of people like you to be able to continue this work. Every donation is crucial, no matter how big or how small.
There are many ways in which you can help the rescue horses at IHR.

*If you are donating for a specific horse/purpose, make sure to let us know in the memo.
Partner with your company
Does your company have a matching funds policy for employees’ donations to charitable organizations? If so, take advantage of this option and check with your HR department!
Sponsor a rescue horse
You can sponsor a specific horse and watch as “your” horse is rehabilitated and rehomed. Others donors sometimes sponsor a horse in memory of their own or another’s beloved equine. Another fantastic way some donors give is to donate in their name for a birthday, anniversary, or a special occasion instead of traditional gifts. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
We have a page dedicated to our equine friends who have made the journey. Donations can be made to honor the life of a human or equine friend or family member. Share your memories and sentiments with a message we’ll post on the page. Email email@example.com if you are interested in memorializing a loved one.
