How to help Baxters Rescue

There are many ways that people and organisations can get involved with helping Baxters Rescue for example;

There are sponsors who make regular donations on behalf of the rescue itself or through one of our horses or ponies, there are the supporters who make individual donations to the rescue and of course there are the volunteers who donate their free time, helping us with the roles and tasks that are to be undertaken here at Baxters Rescue.

If you are interested in becoming a Sponsor or a Supporter please do get in touch with us through our contact page, because we would be very pleased to hear about ways you can help the rescue.


Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society and the community, the environment, or individuals outside one's immediate family.

It is undertaken freely and without concern for financial gain. Volunteering can give you the opportunity to try something new, gain experience, develop skills, improve your career prospects, build confidence and meet new people.
