Welcome to Refuge RR

Willy and Mikey Throughout history man has measured a horse's worth by what the horse could do for man. Horses have provided transport, done hard labor, carried soldiers into battle, performed as athletes and entertainers and have provided pleasure to millions. Somewhere along the way man has forgotten the true value of the horse…

As we watch our horses just being horses, we can truly appreciate their intrinsic value. They are awesome creatures to behold. We are often awestruck by their bravery and their loyalty to each other and we are inspired daily by their intelligence, curiosity and playfulness.

We feel we are indebted to these magnificent beings. So, on behalf of mankind, Refuge RR is giving back that which should never have been taken away, their freedom, and providing them with the protection that is owed to them.

Refuge RR in collaboration with Value Village are asking for the public's support in collecting used items (see list below) in order to collect some funds for our residents. Value Village will purchase the clothing by the pound, so we are looking to collect as much as we can. We are collecting from May 18th until the 30th of June. Different drop-off points and collection locations are available.

Value Village will  accept and credit towards our event's compensation for the following items in good, clean and sellable conditions: clothing, jewelry, fashion accessories (hat, scarf, mittens, etc.), handbags, shoes and linens (towels, bed sheets, table cloth, etc.)

Contact names for drop off points and collection possibility are on the poster.

Thank you for your generosity.

Our animals still need you

Our animals depend on you throughout the year to have enough food so they don't go hungry and this is also true in this time of celebration. With winter already here, we are in need of extra supplies and feed for the cold months ahead. Our monthly costs of feeding everyone is close to 12K. If you love our work and what we do, please help us to keep doing it by giving whatever you can. In addition, they need their shelters to be improved to protect them from weather elements and cold winter winds.

Listen to your heart and be generous. Donate by clicking the button "CanadaHelps" at the top of the page (and print your receipt right away) or by sending a check or money order to the address at the bottom of the page (a receipt will be sent to you beginning of 2015).

Thank you on behalf of the over 250 animals who call RR home and for having their wellbeing at heart.
