new volunteer and other sanctuary programs available at DoubleHP Horses

Horse Help Providers, Inc. (DoubleHP), a 501c3 nonprofit organization, has received Sanctuary Status from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).
DoubleHP, the first GFAS Sanctuary in South Dakota, has helped to rescue, rehab, and rehome hundreds of horses during the past 10 years. And now, fourteen rescued horses have a permanent sanctuary home with DoubleHP at their New Hope Horse Shelter near Crooks, SD. These rescued horses will participate in new Sanctuary programs such as equine assisted learning (communication, personal growth & learning, teambuilding, etc) and natural horsemanship activities (both riding and ground exercises available). People do not have to have any previous experience with horses to participate in these programs. Donations to help feed these sanctuary horses may be made to DoubleHP, 25337 470 Ave, Crooks SD 57020. Volunteers are also needed to clean stalls and pens and to help develop these and other new programs in DoubleHP's transition to Sanctuary Status.
