We are honored to be a grant recipient from the 'El Pomar Foundation - Sally Beck Fund' to support the care of our horses.

El Pomar Foundation is one of the largest and oldest private foundations in Colorado. Spencer and Julie Penrose founded El Pomar in 1937, and the Foundation now contributes more than $22 million annually through grants and community stewardship programs to support Colorado nonprofit organizations involved in health, human services, education, arts and humanities and civic and community initiatives.

'We are so honored to be awarded this grant to help care for our horses here at the rescue,' commented Kathy Hamm, Executive Director for End of the Trail Rescue. "So many have struggled through this challenging year and this grant will help us continue our important work here at the Ranch."

Thank You CUHA for our shelters!!

Thanks to Grants & Donations we have been able to expand our arena, move our round pen and even expand several of our pen areas for our horses!  In November we were able to add shelters to our expanded pens thanks to CUHA!!

It is really looking great and we are so grateful for donations and grants that help us maintain a high level of care for all of our rescues - 


WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU FEED YOUR HORSES!!!!

We are excited to announce we have received an Emergency Grant through the Colorado Unwanted Horse Alliance to provide HAY to our communities on the western slope!!  We plan to be up and running next week with HAY available at no cost! 

We want to help those horse lovers that have lost their jobs and income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  What has worried us is the hard reality that in times like these we will see an increase in abandoned and unwanted horses as many are facing financial challenges. We do not want people to be put in the horrible position of taking their horses to auction, slaughter lots or abandoning them.

The hay will be provided by local  farmers in the Montrose and Grand Junction areas - this wonderful grant will allow us to help those compassionate horse owners that want to be able to provide hay for their animals and keep them at their current location.

Please give us a call at 970-901-0502 or send us an email at info@eottr.org

THANK YOU CUHA!!!  

This Grant will help so many!!

COLORADO UNWANTED HORSE ALLIANCE

As these difficult and uncertain times persist with the COVID-19 situation we want to check in with all our supporters and horse lovers. We hope you are holding up with all the major changes in your lives.

For most of us our worlds have been turned upside down with the pandemic and we want you all to know we care about each and every one of you. We have heavy hearts with everything going on in our communities and the world. We are filled with gratitude for the numbers of you that have asked how we are doing and what you can do to help during these difficult times.

We want to assure all of you that we are fine at End of the Trail Rescue! We made sure that we had plenty of hay, grain and veterinary supplies for all our horses as the COVID-19 situation began to escalate weeks ago.

What worries us is the hard reality that in times like these we will see an increase in abandoned and unwanted horses as many are facing financial challenges. We want to be able to provide hay, feed and veterinary services to those in our communities that have lost income and are unable to care for their horses - we do not want people to be put in the horrible position of taking their horses to auction and slaughter lots or abandoning them.

We are putting out a temporary fund raising plea.

Our first goal is to provide support to owners so that they can keep their horses at their current location by providing hay, feed and veterinary care, as needed. Our second goal is to make room to house up to 12 additional horses here at the ranch on a temporary basis. We are committed to making this extra effort because we do not want these horses to end up at the sale barn, starved, or heading to slaughter.

If you are in a position to help - please consider a donation today, tomorrow or next week.

We Thank You in advance.

Accomplishing our goals requires diverse activities such as:

  • Public education and outreach

  • Horse sanctuary and protection

  • Medical care and rehabilitation

  • Equine therapy programs

  • Pairing horses with humans to foster healing and good mental health

We are in the process of expanding our services and capabilities to meet the growing needs in our area.  We want to ensure that we provide for horses and human needs for the foreseeable future and with your help, we can build an amazing legacy for horses and people in need.
