Ways to Help


Thank you for wanting to help Pony Tales Refuge & Rehab, Inc.  We are a 501(c)(3) organization registered in Wisconsin as a Charitable Organization since 2014.   View our IRS 501(c)(3) Determination Letter here. Your donations may be tax deductible and 100% of all donations received go directly to the care and rehabilitation of the equines in our care.  There are many ways you can help:


No amount is too small!  That $2.00 you got back in change at the convenience store will buy a tube of Ivermectin dewormer.  The $5.00 you saved on the deal from Pizza Hut will buy a bale of hay.  That pile of change that has been weighing down your purse could feed a horse for a month, or more, if your purse is anything like mine! Every little bit helps and it all adds up.  And it's easy to do! Just click on the donate button below to send a donation via PayPal.  You can also send a check to:

Pony Tales Refuge & Rehab, Inc.

4398 130th Avenue

Colfax, Wisconsin 54730


Is there a particular rescue here that just seems to speak to you?  Do you have the funds to care for a horse, but not the time or space?  Consider sponsoring!  You can choose any amount you wish to donate on a monthly basis and every penny will go to the care and rehabilitation of your selected rescue.  Just let us know who that is and we will send you a current photo and any updates on their progress each month.  To find out more about sponsoring, Click Here!


We are ALWAYS in need of experienced, knowledgeable volunteers!  But, don't worry if you don't have much experience with horses! There are many things here that we can use your help with.  From picking up sticks and debris to making photocopies or other organizational tasks.  Each time you come out, we can spend a little time around the horses while we help you gain some experience and knowledge.  If you are interested in any of the many volunteer opportunities we have available and would like to learn more, Click Here!

Wish List!

You would really love to help and you really want to help, but you had a bad experience with the over-abundance of untrustworthy "rescues" that exist now.  That's ok and we completely understand!  It's hard to know for certain that you can trust that the donation you're sending is going where you want it to go.  This is such an unfortunate state of times we are in right now with "rescues" popping up all over the place and little is done to hold them accountable until perhaps it's too late.  Rest assured we are doing everything we can to separate Pony Tales from these other so-called rescues, but maybe you still just are not sure.  Don't worry.  Your donation does not have to come to us.  Say you would like to buy a bag of feed or pay for veterinary care for one of the rescues.  That would be wonderful!  Simply click on the links below to send your donation directly to our feed supplier and one of the fantastic veterinarians we work with on what seems like a weekly basis at times.  Just tell them that you would like to put the funds towards an existing bill or as a credit towards any future bills.  Your direct donations are tax deductible to you as well!
