Those that cannot be adopted will become residents and will retire at the farm. We encourage those of you who want to help but cannot adopt a horse to
consider sponsoring one of the residents, animals in rehab, or one up for

Throw a party or donation event! What if you invite 10 friends to your home each of your friends contributing $10-20 or items. Then, donate the funds for a sponsorship certificate of the BFAS animal of your choice! Your gift and their gift is 100% tax deductible. Just think, if 10 of you sponsor your own party, that is $1000-2000 raised for BFAS! Have more friends, sponsor more animals!
FYI: It costs $200 to feed one horse for one month. A vet exam will start around $200 and could reach $1000+ in an emergency in just a few minutes. Intake for a new dog which includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, worming, leash, collar, dog bed, microchip, and a toy costs well over $300 for each dog.
Teach your children about giving. Some children have opted to fore go birthday gifts or a big event to collect donations and help animals. Your child can present their donation in person, will get a VIP tour, and can also choose to sponsor an animal which they can continue to visit. The donation could be in the form of a check, or something from our wish list. Tax-deductible too.
