Constellation Community Champions Grant

Thank you Constellation for supporting our therapeutic riding program with the Community Champions grant!

With the Community Champions grant we were able to purchase new green halters which are being modeled by a few of our horses. They look great and will help the volunteers when working with the horses.

Fall Script Card Order

Please help out PETS by viewing the Fall Script Order Form to see if you can meet any of your needs by ordering Scrip Cards. It costs you nothing extra to use the cards.  You get the full value of the cards and PETS gets a small rebate % on each card. The Script Card orders are due to Clareen by no later then October 6th.

Remember, it doesn’t cost you anything extra (above the cost of the cards) to support our very worthwhile riding Program.  The rebates (see the listed %’s on the order form) count as a tax deduction come April.  So the more you order, the bigger the deduction!

Thank you for your order!

Thank you
