We have scheduled a “Work Day” for Saturday, July 18th, from 9AM to 12PM. We will be working in the turnout area and also cleaning stalls. If you can come out even for an hour that would be geat. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday.
Do More 24 Here! Today is the day!
Join PETS and The United Way of the National Capital Area in raising awareness and donations during Do More 24
PETS has a great opportunity through United Way’s DO MORE 24 campaign to raise funds for the care of our 4 footed friends, Herbie, Wesley, Jake, Romer, Ivy, Dancer and Romeo.
PETS’ riding lessons are provided without charge which equalizes the benefits of riding for all of our students with disabilities. All services to riders and horses are provided by a care of volunteers. This means that all money received goes to help keep the Program running and keeping our horses healthy and happy throughout the year.
United Way is organizing a 24 hour online donation marathon on June 4, and PETS is a lucky participant with our own special donation page!
Spread the word far and wide to friends and family and to all your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram friends. Tell them why you think PETS is worthy of their donations. Provide them the address to PETS’ donation page:
