Hope for Horses

Works to find forever homes for equines in dangerous or compromised situations in Marion County, Arkansas, and surrounding areas. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. We accept equines of all ages to rehabilitate, train and eventually place in approved adoptive homes.



Hope for Horses

Volunteers for horse care, barn work and foster care facilities are always needed. From helping around the ranch to helping in the office, our volunteers are the heart of our organization! To find out about volunteer opportunities, look under the "How You Can Help" tab at the top of the page.



Hope for Horses

Currently we have five foster care facilities that have successfully met our Foster Care Guidelines. We continue to look for additional families willing to foster one or more neglected horses. If you are interested in fostering, look under the "How You Can Help" tab at the top of the page for more information.

How You Can Donate

Your donations provide real hope for the horses. The cost of care for one horse averages about $250 per month. Unfortunately, many of our horses have special needs which drive up the cost of daily care. To continue providing the quality of care these horses deserve, we depend on donations from kind people like you, our hard working volunteers, and our committed staff.

Remember, we are an IRS approved non-profit, (501(c)(3), organization.
As such, all monies and donations of items are tax deductible
and go directly to helping needy equines.


Monetary DonationsDonating is fast, easy, and secure through PayPal.If you don't have a PayPal account, you can mail a check or money order to our USPS address, P.O. Box 253, Yellville, AR 72687. Or check us out on Facebook by clicking on the FB link in the upper right-hand corner of this page. There is a link for donations on that site.

Sponsorship – Allows you to choose a particular horse and also choose the level of sponsorship that meets your needs. This level allows for scheduled visits to your sponsored horse along with personal updates. If you'd like to sponsor a horse, please fill out the Sponsor application. You'll find this under the HOW YOU CAN HELP tab at the top of the page.

Feed/Hay/Horse Supply Donations – Specify your monetary donation for feed, hay, wormers and supplies directly to: Powell Feed Stores in Yellville, Flippin, Harrison and Green Forest and Quality Feed Stores in Harrison and Valley Springs.

Special Needs – Donations help with these extra expenses whether it’s a special shoeing for one horse or expensive supplements for another.

Vet Care – This is an ongoing expense. Regular shots and visits aside, new horses often need extensive care while they are being nourished back to health. Some may need x-rays and other expensive treatments. We currently have an account with Dr. Ponder at White River Veterinary Clinic in Flippin.

Other needs - Many items are necessary to operate on a daily basis. Please check out the list below and remember all donations are tax deductible.

THANK YOU for your donation in any form!
We rely upon your donations to help Marion County’s horses in need.

Saving one horse won't change the world,
but it will change the world for that one horse.


Noted below are just some of the many items needed to effectively run a rescue ranch.
To ensure horses we acquire do not contaminate other animals, their first two weeks are spent in quarantine.
That is, they are housed in their own sheltered stall with its own paddock area and individual water and feed buckets. This not only keeps all our horses safe but also allows us to strictly monitor their feed consumption and health to begin the process of of bringing them back to health.

These needs are broken down into sections to show the intended use for each item As you can see, a lot goes into caring for these deserving animals.
