On behalf of MANE IN HEAVEN, we would like to express our appreciation for your support of our official 501c3 non-profit all-volunteer organization. Without generous charitable donations, Mane in Heaven cannot fulfill our mission of maintaining or training our horses and provide visits.  We are funded solely by people who believe in the therapeutic benefits of animal-assisted activity and therapy visits…people like YOU!   

We do not currently charge for visits with our therapy horses; however, we do ask that facilities please consider a donation so that we can continue to be sustainable.  

Your gift will go far by providing for boarding, food, veterinary care, transportation costs and on-going training of our miniature therapy horses and our volunteer handlers.  Your tax-deductible donation ensures our organization’s success and growth so that we will continue to reach many people and provide the numerous physical and emotional benefits associated with animal-assisted activity and therapy visits. We will provide a tax donation letter after receipt of all donations upon request.

Every dollar helps so please DONATE!

See our “MINI”Bus fundraising link on Crowdrise:  


$10,000  MINIBUS:  Help us get our miniatures to their destination visits safely.  We are in need of a permanent means of transportation to off-site visits. We are currently borrowing a trailer (thanks to our volunteer Rosanne Hylton); however, we have researched transportation options and have decided that instead of purchasing a small horse trailer AND a vehicle that can haul the trailer, a MINIBUS (yes, that is what it is called!) would be the perfect transport vehicle for our minis.   A 14 passenger used minibus would be renovated to accommodate our minis in comfort.  A minibus also alleviates parking issues since we don’t have to worry about backing up (never easy with a horse trailer) or wondering who has a vehicle that can haul a horse trailer for that visit. It also provides  the most comfort for our horses.

Other Ideas for Donations: 

$125:  ADOPT 1 MINI FOR A MONTH! By donating $125 know that your contribution will be used for food and board for 1 mini for 1 month. Tell us who which mini you want to adopt for the month.

$500: ADOPT 4 MINIS FOR A MONTH!  For those of you that are feeling generous, your contribution will be used for food and board for our 4 minis for 1 month. Yes, horses are expensive, even if they do come in little packages.

$$ VET BILLS:   Donations in any amounts are used for our minis’ regular health maintenance visits (thanks to Dr. Nicky Wessel of Cutting Edge Equine for well vet checks, sick calls, deworming, immunizations, etc).

$$ MARKETING EXPENSES: Donations for marketing materials such as business cards, brochures and photographs of our minis are necessary to help spread awareness of who we are, what our mission is and of course to let everyone have pictures of our adorable therapy horses.

Mane in Heaven can only continue to reach out to our communities because of both volunteer and financial support. We are an IRS  recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit, thus tax deductions are allowed to the fullest extent of the law.  We’d like to thank you very much in advance for your generosity.
