Join us to learn about volunteer and adoption opportunities!
Saturday June 6th at 9am
Golden Gate Estates, Naples, FL

Volunteers play a vital role in the care of the horses here!  A few committed volunteers will have the opportunity to spend the summer working with horses.  It is hot, hard work, but  so very rewarding.  You should attend this event if:
1. You are committed to helping horses
2. Have the ability/transportation to show up on designated dates on time
3. Can follow directions and work well with others
4. Can commit to at least once a week thru August

If you are interested in adopting a horse in the future, this is a great way to learn about horses and to develop a relationship with a horse that is already here.  Learn what it takes, time, money, and resources to responsibly care for a horse.
