Learning about the PPER Purpose and Mission

The purpose of PPER is to Rescue, Rehabilitate, and Rehome.  

The first weekend I started volunteering at PPER I helped with the Rescue of the five minis.  I was nervous about what we would find when we arrived and what shape the ponies would be in.  There were 4 stallions and one mare. 

First thing I learned very quickly is that a stallion is a stallion – doesn’t matter if it is a mini, a pony or a full-size horse.  A mini stallion is just as aggressive as his larger buddies.

Michelle's First Day at PPER

Dedication – that’s the word that comes to mind when I think of Pasture Pals Equine Rescue, affectionately known as PPER.  There are currently 32 horses, 5 donkeys, a hinny, a mule, 3 bovines, 3 goats, a potbelly pig, and 4 dogs, in their care at 3 different locations.  18 of them are at the West Olive location alone!

Yesterday was my first official training day.  Since I am over an hour away and work full-time, I can only physically volunteer on Saturdays.

Introducing the Equines!


Fritz is the sweetest little donkey you could ever meet. He is loves attention and we use him to teach beginners how to groom and clean feet. He is unbelievable cute and very well mannered.
Everyday I post one of our equines so you can get to know them!

 A Little more about Pasture Pals Equine Rescue, Inc.
 
We are a recognized 501c3 Non-Profit Corporation, and everyone here is a volunteer. Pasture Pals Equine Rescue, Inc. Our purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome equines; and to educate people on their care and upkeep.
 
I have a full time job, as well as running the rescue, so we need more volunteers that can commit to a schedule and help with the daily chores at the rescue, even if it is only one day a week it helps.
