If you have experience with equines and the right facilities, consider adopting a rescued horse.
Fosterers and trainers are invaluable to MLHR. Whether you are providing a safe and secure home with basic handling, or have enough experience to provide gentle training relevant to the horses age, this greatly helps our rescues in finding their future permanent home. We welcome emergency fosterers and long term foster carers.
We are always looking for volunteers at MLHR, both in fundraising and all things horse-related.
All of our volunteers work full time so we answer emails as quickly as we can, please be patient. NOTE Volunteer emails won't be answered at the weekend.
Please note our rescue centre is in Kildare NOT Dublin so you need your own transport to get there. Don’t worry if you can’t get to the centre, we need help with lots of things - from transport to home checks, help with bucket collections and lots more.
Even if you only have a couple of hours a week to spare, a chat with one of our volunteers may reveal something small you can do to make a big difference to us.
CSR days are vitally important to us as they undertake the big jobs we generally don't have the manpower or time to complete. We have had teams from Deloitte and Bank of Ireland in the past and they thoroughly enjoyed the work they did which includes painting, fencing and generally hanging out with all our lovely animals.
We operate CSR days on Thursdays and if you would like to put your company forward, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers will need to bring wellies, rain-gear and a packed lunch.
Have you a fundraising idea? Would you like to fundraise for us? Here are some ideas to get you started:
We have created a guide to running your very own table quiz. Let us know if you would like to run one and we will promote it for you on our website, Facebook and social media.
What could be easier than having a coffee or tea morning and a chat with friends.
Bake sales are great fun, people love to bake their own biscuits/cakes or go all out and have decorating competitions.
Tough Mudder is on in July, and you can enter and get your friends and family to sponsor you, to raise funds for My Lovely Horse Rescue. More info here.
If you would like to run a fundraising event and donate money to us, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
