PMR also hosts the Pennies for PMR Program. This is an ongoing program for children to learn about making a difference. Children get to see and feel the direct link between raising money for a worthy cause and the difference it can make.
PMR has been rescuing horses from abusive situations for seven years. We specialize in pregnant mares, or orphans who’s mothers have been sent to slaughter. We provide a temporary sanctuary for them to have their baby. We evaluate and rehabilitate each horse to the best of our ability. We are a no kill facility. Horses too damaged to be placed into homes are permanently placed in sanctuary. We also track each horse for life, ensuring they remain safe and well cared for throughout their lifetime.
This attitude is one of respect and consideration for the being, and is very different than much of the horse world. We teach that horses are not commodities to be bought, sold, or destroyed depending upon their “performance”. We teach that there is value in the being, the relationship and we encourage kindness and compassion.
Lastly, PMR loves to educate, involve and encourage the children. They are the ambassadors for tomorrow. As our time and money allows, we continue to provide the opportunity to come and learn.
Our mission to provide a safe natural environment for mares to foal in peace, and to nurture and nurse their young.
Our intent to gentle the mares, imprint and gentle the foals, and prepare them for new loving homes.
Our vision is to educate, nurture and assist children in learning about the human-horse connection.
Our "Umbrella Policy of Protection" tracks each horse for life.
We feel it is the ONLY way to keep horses safe for life.
We encourage horse owners to love and keep their equine for life, just as you would your other pets.
Lynn requested that I email you with a schedule Marki would be able to volunteer, as well as her abilities and/or limitations surrounding the work that would be done at PMR.
Marki is in need of a work situation that is somewhat flexible to her needs as person with autism. Sometimes her mood can drastically change from one hour to the next, therefore it is hard to predict wether or not she is up for leaving the home up until right before we do. For the most part, I feel Marki would be very good about volunteering 3 Saturdays per month. However, if she were to last minute not be emotionally stable for working, a last minute no show would be unavoidable, and we hope to find a working situation that would be understanding of this. I have no issue with giving as much prior notice as I can when these incidents occur, however sometimes they can happen merely minutes before we leave for somewhere. If this were to happen, what is the best way to reach you or Lynn to inform you of an absence?
As far as the actual work to be done, Marki had a hand in filling water bowls and grooming Whiskey. All this is great for Marki. She is also capable, and encouraged, to do some more heavy work; Lynn mentioned teaching Marki how to rake stalls in the future, which would be great. So far, these three activities are plenty for Marki I think, and maybe we can add more on in the future once she gets more comfortable?
Thank you so much for introducing Marki to this wonderful opportunity! Lynn was fantastic, and I hope to meet you as well. If you have any more questions or concerns, feel free to email me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Did you know that you can do your community service here?
Please leave your dog at home. They make our rescues nervous. Thank you.
Create a competition! Schools compete against each other to raise most funds in a month winner names new rescue baby!
Create an online auction: Ebay or FB
Create an event to hold a raffle/small silent auction (I think this time of year a wine and cheese open house would be super, we could sell PMR wines as gifts, get great raffle prizes....
Track down all the local stables, find out when they are hosting their holiday party at the barn. Ask if we can attend, and host a table with brochures and gift items for sale! Get the word out and make new friends!
It has been mentioned to me to contact all the local houses of Worship. Take time to make a visit and leave brochure and materials. Explain how the need this time of year is so great, could they mention us in their Sunday Sermon?
I'd like to designate one person to manage PMR's Facebook page. One upload or happy positive/funny comment daily..build our friend base.
