“Sophia’s Oasis For Equines, Inc. (SOFE), is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit, equine welfare organization located in the State of Maryland. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of equines in need; assisting equines in situations of neglect, abuse or the threat of slaughter. We are also dedicated to assisting other equine rescue organizations located in the tri-state area, New Jersey and Delaware to save equines from the slaughter pipeline. Additionally, we desire to help the BLM mustangs whenever possible. We are dedicated to educating the public regarding the standards of care required to maintain an equine as a riding partner and/or companion animal in a humane manner.”
Volunteering for a horse rescue can be both physically and emotionally difficult but the benefits far outweigh the challenges. Helping a horse go from near starvation to a happy, healthy home can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. And, the best part is you only need two things help, a big heart and a willingness to help.
Volunteering at SOFE is a wonderful family experience. Make it a family event!! All volunteers under the age of 18 must have a waiver formed signed by a parent or legal guardian.
