The cost of caring for an average of 60 horses a year is overwhelming. As a non-profit organization, Aiken Equine Rescue relies entirely on private donations and fund raising to save equines from neglect, abuse, abandonment and slaughter. When you become a sponsor, you have a direct impact in helping maintain the highest level of care we are able to provide.
Your sponsorship also helps support the mission of the Aiken Equine Rescue by allowing us to free up funds so we can help equines through community outreach and provide care for future rescues.
BECOME A SPONSOR
The sponsorship program is where an individual, business or group makes an annual or monthly gift which provides us with the support that allows us to continue rescuing horses and focus less on fund raising. Your commitment creates a happy ending for the shattered lives we rescue. Annually, or monthly, we will charge your credit or debit card for the amount and send you a confirmation. Once your gift is arranged, no further action is needed. At the end of the year, we will email you a receipt for the total of your gift.
Sponsorship is for any business, group or person who wants to help save horses, ponies, donkeys or mules and can financially commit to providing an annual or monthly donation for a rescue’s care. Many of our rescues often require more medical attention than the average horse. Rescues may need months or even years, to return to health and rebuild their trust in humans.
Sponsorships make legendary gifts to give a friend or family member who loves horses. Give a sponsorship as a gift for birthdays, holidays, or special occasions. Sponsoring a rescue is a great way for groups and organizations such as schools, church groups and clubs, to support their community.

Pilgrim came into ERA the week before Thanksgiving 2020 he was severely underweight and had cellulitis in his left hind leg from an untreated injury. Pilgrim is in his twenties and is a Quarter Horse. He is very kind and friendly.
Though the hard work of he ERA team and volunteers, Pilgrim is on his way to recovery.
Rule Yourself came to us the beginning of 2021 needing rehabilitation for a bowed tendon. On the track he made over $171,000 and is sired by the great Giants Causeway. Rule Yourself will be rehabbing and spending time being a horse until he is ready to be adopted.
Tricks came into our program seized through Laurens County for neglect and starvation.Tricks was severely underweight, full of parasites and had extensive dental issues. It has been a long recover, but his weight is finally good and he is now learning to trust people again.
Sub is one of our long-term rehab cases on the farm. When Sub came in he had very minimal sole depth and because of it he went very lame and uncomfortable. Through hard work of our farrier and ERA staff we have made progress in growing sole depth to get him on the right track to recovery. Sub still has a long way to go and requires a special shoeing program to keep him on track.

Mini Me is a long-term resident here at ERA. Mini-Me is an essential part of our program as we get many children who volunteer at the rescue and through Mini-Me have learned how to groom, lead and handle a horse. Mini has served as companion for horses that needed rehab and self confidence.
Magnolia is a mini-mule that came to us in 2020. Magnolia is partially blind and reli
