We are having an open house which includes: meeting the animals, facility tour, barbeque lunch, rummage sale, short educational talks throughout the day, and an introductory Equine Enrichment workshop (1 hour) presented by Train with Trust. Walk-in visitors are welcome; however, we would love to know if you plan to join us! Contact us with your questions or to RSVP.
Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary is committed to caring for special needs equines at risk of being neglected, sold at auction, sold into the slaughter industry, or euthanized needlessly. We provide these horses with a safe place to live out the rest of their lives. Spirit Keeper provides the veterinary care, dental care, hoof care, individualized nutrition, enrichment, and psychological support needed to ensure each animal experiences comfort and wellness. We offer community education classes, workshops, and clinics in science-based animal husbandry and training, basic equine behavior and handling, and animal emergency preparedness. We have a trainer on our board who provides riding lessons and horse training on a limited basis with monies raised going directly to the care of our resident equines.

Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary was fortunate to be chosen as a
2017 GIVE! NON-PROFIT
We Raised: $28,125.00
From: 109 donors
The GIVE! funds were combined with $1125.00 we raised on #GivingTuesday via Facebook and went 100% to the purchase of materials, labor, and installation of a 1/2 acre corral with safe, sturdy welded pipe. We also had enough to purchase the materials for a 5-acre pasture to be enclosed in the same safe manner. The materials for the 5-acre pasture are on site and ready for installation; however, we are $7500.00 short to have the work done. Our goal is to raise $7500.00 by June 1, 2018 (sooner if possible) to pay for the labor and installation.
Spirit Keeper Equine Sanctuary provides a safe environment and comprehensive care for at-risk equines. These are horses in danger of slaughter, euthanasia, abuse, and neglect. Our resident horses may be elderly, have special nutritional requirements, chronic medical conditions, physical disabilities, psychological trauma, or behavioral issues. Their conditions typically prevent them from being ridden or "wanted" by certain individuals and make them unadoptable by rescue organizations; however, these horses may still enjoy an excellent quality of life when properly loved and cared for.
Spirit Keeper Equine provides special needs care, training, rehabilitation, and sanctuary for other animal species on a case by case basis. We are a Rocky Mountain Collie-Sheltie Rescue approved foster home. We assist by providing transport for collies and occasionally other animals from their current location to an approved rescue facility. We currently provide a home or foster care and/or training to 1 goat, 3 potbelly pigs, 11 collies, 1 poodle, 1 terrier mix, 1 Norwegian Elkhound, 12 companion cats, 7 feral cats, 12 snakes (8 pythons and 4 boas), and 1 chicken.
