Each year Dream Equine Therapy Center rescues between 30 – 50 Orphan Nurse Mare Foals. When we get the foals home, some are just a few days old and are just learning how to drink from a bucket.  Some will be a few weeks of intensive care before they are stable.  These young foals have special requirements for feeding/care/fencing etc while young.  They are on milk replacer every few hours and creep feed which is pretty costly. Many of these foals don’t have a chance if not rescued by organizations like DETC.  Please help support our efforts to save as many foals as possible!  We have a Wish List dedicated for DETC needs during the Foal Season.

We are in need of the following items:
-Monetary donations
-Tractor Supply or Walmart Gift Cards
-Bags of chopped hay or alfalfa hay
-Milk Replacer
-Creep feed
-Gas Gift Cards
-Medical Gloves
-Cotton Rolls
-Tack donations for our twice yearly tack sales

Foal Costs Per Day:
The cost of milk replacer and creep feed for 10 young foals is around $150 per day and that doesn’t include vetting, transport, bedding, hay, medical and other supplies. There are many expenses that come along with rescuing orphan foals.

The foals we rescue are the lucky ones, as there are thousands and only a handful of rescues that can take this on! We believe in quality of care for each foal and that is why we take in a smaller number, so we can make sure each foal has training, quality milk/feed, medical care and are selective in our adoption process as we are only looking for forever homes!

Please help support our efforts to save as many foals as possible!
