ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.
Each Month, HORSE AND MAN has a Drop in the Bucket Fund for a specific equine charity. My theory is that sometimes it is easier to give anonymously in a very small amount than not give at all because one feels embarrassed to give just a little.
Well, many of us feel that way. But, if we put all the drops in one bucket, it makes a difference in some horse’s life. So, that is what this page is about. If you feel moved by our monthly Bucket Fund story but only have a few dollars to spare, we are happy to help it grow bigger.
All donations are compiled into one larger donation to be gifted at the end of the month.
Horse & Man, Inc is a Non-Profit 501 (c) 3 corporation so all donations are tax-deductible. Please save your Pay Pal receipt for your records.

JANUARY 2019 BUCKET FUND: 21 YOUNG DONKEYS – STARVING IN MUD… their owner fell off a ladder and died. These donkeys were left to fend for themselves in the rain and mud of their Texas farm.
21 young donkeys. Starving. Sitting in mud. Their owner fell off of a ladder when he was making repairs to the house. He died. During this awful time, the donkeys were deemed too much by the bereft wife. She could not emotionally, mentally, physically… care for them. So, they were left to fend for themselves for many weeks during winter storms in Texas. 9 young jennies and 12 intact (mostly young) jacks… losing weight daily in the rain and mud… . They are all very, very skinny – especially the youngest. They all need skin care, proper nutrition and halter training! The 12 boys all need to be gelded when they are fit enough for surgery.
Dr. Kris Anderson came to the rescue and took all 21 donkeys into her home – and is helping them out of her own pocket. She also had to construct special housing for the intact males. As soon as they are all ready for gelding, she will perform all 12 of those surgeries, too. They all need excellent food, skin treatments, gelding and training.
Let’s help Dr. Kris with her good deed of jumping in and handling this situation, taking on this expense personally. She just couldn’t not do something!
All donations are 100% tax deductible! Thank you in advance for starting this year – helping!
When their relatively young owner died, his wife was unable to care for the donkeys. Luckily, their vet, Dr. Kris, heard about what had happened and took the time to reached out to find out who was caring for the donkeys. Once she found out that no one was caring for the donkeys… she offered to help the wife by taking on all 21 donkeys, herself. Personally. Dr. Kris had to evaluate them all, photograph them all for Coggins (in-state rule), prepare her pastures for the intact jacks and jennies, transport them all (they didn’t know how to load) and then treat them all.
Now, Dr. Kris Anderson is feeding them so they will become strong enough to go through the gelding and worming process. With proper nutrition and skin care, they should be available for adoption in a few months.
