Donate Items

If you have horse items that you are no longer using or if you just have too many of one thing, please consider donating them to our rescue.

Other Items That Can Also Be Donated (this list is not conclusive)

Halters - Either nylon or all leather. All sizes are needed and range from mini, pony, horse and large horse (to include draft horse, mule and donkey).

Lead Ropes - Cotton or nylon lead ropes, any color

Leather Lead Shanks - Leather with a chain at one end. Especially useful when holding a horse for vet care.

Clippers and Guarded Razors

Ointments and Liniments - Antibiotic ointments for wound care. Liniment is used to rub on legs after workouts.

60mL Syringes and 19 Gauge Needles - To wash out wounds.

Telfa Dressings or Antimicrobial Dressing - such as Kerlix AMD

Antiseptic Soap - like Chlorohexidine Diacetate

Wound Cleaner - like Povidone Iodine

Elastic Gauze - like Vetrap

Padded cotton

Betadine or Triple Antibiotic Ointment - like Biozide Gel

Tongue Depressors - to apply ointment


Spray Bottles

Fly Spray - Any of the natural ingredient ones. The fly season is long.

Salt Blocks - Plain white, red, or mineral. Horses have these available all year round.

Shavings - Bags of pine shaving for bedding the stalls. The horses each use 1/2 bag a day, and stalls are cleaned daily. With all our rescue horses we need bags donated or monetary donations for these all year long.

Hay - The Rescue Horses are fed a mixture of grass and Timothy hay. Each horse eats 4 plus flakes a day, and a bale can have anywhere from 10 – 16 flakes in it.

Treats - Carrots and apples are always welcome. They are also cut into pieces in their daily feedings. There are numerous varieties of horse treats in various flavors, such as; peppermint, licorice, carrot, carrot and oat, apple, apple and oats, etc.

Brooms - For some reason the brooms wear out quickly from all the sweeping of the barn aisles. We use small (house-size) brooms up to the extra wide broom size.

Paper Products - This would include plates, cups, napkins, bowls, paper towels, large and small sealable plastic bags, garbage bags, plastic knives, spoons, and plastic forks. We use these for our fundraisers and often times the plastic storage bags have feedings placed into them when another volunteer will be feeding the horses.

Large Plastic Muck Buckets - These come in so handy for placing loose hay from the bales, and "snacks" of hay for the horses throughout the day. They look like a large bushel basket with rope handles, but are made of plastic.

Horse Blankets and Sheets - We need all sizes.

Manure Forks

Barn Gloves, Disposable Gloves - Barn gloves are generally a "one size" fits all. They can be cloth with grip dots on them or leather. Gloves are in use constantly, and many times a volunteer does not realize how much they save their hands. Plastic disposable gloves are used for treating injuries on horses, as well as rubbing liniment on horses legs.

Saddle Soap / Neatsfoot Oil - Cleaning products to keep our leather bridles, saddles, halters, and leads in good condition.

Hardware - As simple as this sounds, the number of hooks for use on stall doors, double ended clips, bridle racks, saddle racks, nails and screws of all sizes, and screw eye hooks. Many of the clips wear out or break, and replacements are always needed.

Used Repairable Equipment - Such as horse/stock trailers, tractors, backhoes, saddles, bridles, tack of any kind.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions on donating items.

Thank you kindly from all of us and the horses at the 505 Horse Rescue for your donations!
