Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.
SHARE is a nonprofit humane society in the Champaign, IL area with investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois. We provide housing, care, and training for approximately 40 rescue horses at any one time. Other than some "sanctuary horses-horses that are not available for adoption due to physical or health issues," these horses are up for adoption to loving, forever homes. SHARE DOES NOT RECEIVE ANY FUNDING FROM FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL TAXES - your donations keep SHARE operating!
Our goals are simple - help educate horse owners on proper care and treatment. When necessary we step in to rescue neglected and abuse animals. Once we receive a horse from a situation like that, rehabilitation is the first priority. The horses must be brought to a healthy weight and must learn to trust humans. This takes much time and effort on the founder and volunteers of S.H.A.R.E. but the reward is worth the work.
This is not an easy task and only through the help of volunteers are we able to provide the best care to our rescued horses.
CANCELED DUE TO HIGH HEAT AND HEAT INDEX - TOO HOT!! IT'S ALL ABOUT THE HORSE happens on Sunday, July 8, 2018, from noon to 4 p.m. People come meet the horses of SHARE. Ride-able horses and companion/pasture pets were eager to meet the public! We will have Adoption Applications available to fill out; our $5 lunch (hot dog, chips, drink) and desserts will once again be available. We plan a demonstration of the different breeds of horses at SHARE and introducing our companion/pasture pets. Bring the family, meet the horses and have an enjoyable afternoon at SHARE!
Come visit SHARE to meet the horses and volunteers! SHARE's Annual OPEN HOUSE is held in October of each year. It's fun for the whole family - face painting, Brush a Pony, hay rides, pumpkin painting and Ride a Draft! There will be a parade of costumed horses for you to vote for a winner - bring your loose change and vote for your favorite, which was Blue the Donkey dressed in Hawaiian garb last year! Food will be available - hot dogs, chips, cookie and a drink for $5 - baked goods are enjoyed, along with hot apple cider! And - - - CARTFUL OF CARE - we will once again stuff a cart with donations of horse items, including but not limited to halters, leads, brushes/grooming supplies, buckets, PDZ stall freshner, First Aid items for horses, feed (feed by Purina or Nutrena - senior, 12%, pony); alfalfa pellets, and of course, horse treats - for more information on items needed, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - or just grab a little something for the SHARE horses next time you are at your local farm store!
We hope to see you all at one or both of the upcoming events!
