Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in the community. It is a chance to make a difference in the lives of those who do not have a voice. At Dove Creek Equine Rescue we welcome those that want to help! Volunteer opportunities will depend on your skills and abilities.

If you are interested contact Ali@dovecreekequinerescue.org or 806-367-0808. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to receive current news about horses and other happenings at Dove Creek.
