About our Cause

At Pacific Woods Estate on the beautiful Oregon coast, we have a small equine rescue. Due to our capacity and other restrictions, we are NOT an official non-profit, only in fact! We operate at a loss, of course. Feed runs us over $200 per month (that includes two alpacas), and annually over $1,000 in veterinary fees (as long as all is going well!) Those costs don't include ongoing repairs and maintenancce, labor, hoof trimmings, etc. But we do it for the love of horses. As the story of the little boy who throws one starfish (sea star) after another back into the sea, yet unable to save them all, we can say, "It mattered to that one."

We are not a visiting facility, and at this point, we do not plan to offer horses for adoption. Jim and I have decided that this will be a safe landing for horses and other equines to finish out their lives. So down the road, there will be that cost as well!

Please consider donating to help our cause. It's not tax-deductible, but if you'd like us to help our "starrfish," it would deduct from our burden! Thanks for your consideration. We are working out how we can thank our contributors (certainly a visit to the horses would be an option!)

Our current residents
