Saving Horses, Inc

Saving Horses, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non profit horse rescue organization that has been rescuing horses from slaughter, abuse and neglect since 2007. We have rescued or coordinated the rescue of 175 horses off feedlots and out of situations of neglect. We have rehabilitated and re homed many, found sanctuary for others, and currently provide sanctuary for 11 horses. Our horses play an important role in our “Horses Healing Humans”, Equine Assisted Therapy Program and the Therapeutic Riding Program for Children with Autism.

 

Helen woodward animal center

Helen Woodward Animal Center is a unique, private non-profit organization in San Diego County that has been committed to the philosophy of people helping animals and animals helping people for over 40 years. Located on 12 acres in Rancho Santa Fe, California, our nationally recognized Center provides a variety of services that benefit the community through educational and therapeutic programs for people, and humane care and adoption for animals.

We are a no-kill facility that receives no government funding and relies heavily on tax-deductible contributions from private donors to continue our life-saving mission.

 

rancho coastal humane society

Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is dedicated to the rescue and shelter of abandoned companion animals, encouraging adoptions into loving homes, and promoting humane ideals through education and community outreach.

Our website enables you to search for an adoptable pet, learn more about the RCHS community and educational services, and find out how to donate or volunteer.

Did you know that Rancho Coastal Humane Society was the first in the entire nation to go solar? We encourage you to visit our campus in beautiful Encinitas, which is also home to the Military Working Dog (MWD) memorial and many educational programs for all members of the family.

 

Miracle babies

Miracle Babies is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was founded to support NICU families. When a baby is born premature or with medical complications, that family’s life changes drastically. Stress becomes a near constant emotion, difficult decisions must be made, and life in the NICU becomes a reality.

 

gently hugged

Our goal is to provide a way to get these surplus items into the arms of mothers with babies in need.

Donated gently used or new clothing in Preemie to 12 month sizes along with blankets and accessories (hats, socks, bibs) are being collected. Clothes are sorted and items of each size sufficient for the first year are placed in a box and labeled for a baby "boy" or "girl".

 

fireflies west

Cancer. This insidious disease strikes without mercy and brings even the mightiest to their knees. While we can't claim to be actually curing cancer we do believe that through our fundraising  efforts we are helping scientists and doctors to research better treatments and ultimately a cure.

What started as a ride amongst friends fifteen years ago has become a worldwide community of cyclists who honor lost loved ones and help those in need by raising millions of dollars in Europe, California and now Australia & New Zealand.

 

aids lifecycle

AIDS/LifeCycle is a fully-supported, seven-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

It’s a life-changing ride—not a race—through some of California’s most beautiful countryside. AIDS/LifeCycle is co-produced by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation and is designed to advance their shared interest to reduce new HIV infections and improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS. As part of this event, thousands of people participating as either Cyclists, Roadies, Volunteers, or Virtual Cyclists raise critically needed funds for HIV/AIDS-related services and bring to light the fact that HIV/AIDS is still a devastating disease in our society, particularly the LGBT community and communities of color.
