miniEncounters mini therapy horses

A nonprofit organization

$1,112 raised by 14 donors

We are an approved non profit serving the Collin, Denton, Grayson, Fannin,  Dallas and Rockwall county area.  Our ministry is entirely run on donations and volunteers.  How can you help us?

Our ministry uses the donations for the following items:

Our biggest needs will be the increased cost of fuel and supplies such as feed, hay, and gas.  Since March these have all increased significantly.   Gift cards for varying amounts are always welcome.

Gas to get to and from visits--we have been hit hard with this expense.

Vet expenses for required shots, dental work, and other things that come up with the minis.

Hay, Feed and general supplies are going up with each visit to the feed store.  We buy hay in bulk but anticipate this to increase significantly this year with the cost of fertilizer and fuel for the farmers.

Sponsoring a visit to one of your loved ones in a community where they reside or in their memory.

Gift cards in various amounts are always welcome.

We are also a member of Benevity and avidexchange if your employer is one that does matching funds for your donation, volunteer days or other items.
