This is the season for giving thanks, and Hanaeleh would like to thank everyone for all of your support- it is only through your kindness and generosity that we are able to continue the work of saving the horses.
Thank You to Our Volunteers!
Our volunteers are the lifeblood of the rescue- they come out every week (sometimes multiple times a week!) and work so very hard! Whether it’s cleaning stalls, scrubbing waterers, spreading mulch, or grooming and exercising the horses, we are dependent upon our volunteers for doing the majority of the work. Hanaeleh is a 100% volunteer organization, and we are so very thankful to our dedicated volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering at Hanaeleh, please e-mail: [email protected] for more information!
Thank You to Our Donors!
Thank you so much for our donors! Whether it be a one-time donation or a monthly sponsorship for one of our horses, we are so very thankful for your support. You are the reason we are able to pay our rent, buy hay, grain and supplements for the horses, as well as paying for the veterinary and farrier bills. Without your donation, we would not be able to run the rescue- so a huge thank you!
If you are interested in helping through a monthly or one-time sponsorship of one of our horses, please visit our sponsorship page!
Thank You to Our Veterinarians!
Hanaeleh is very thankful to our very dedicated veterinarians who have come out and helped our horses through the years. We have worked with Mission Equine in San Juan Capistrano for almost two decades, and they have helped not only our horses, but also our little sheep, Robert Bruce! We are also thankful to the vets at OC Equine who helped us diagnose Garnet’s breathing issue, and continue to monitor her progress. Finally, we are very thankful to the vets at Chino Valley Veterinary Hospital for performing Garnet’s surgery, and who still work with OC Equine to oversee her recovery.
Thank You to Our Farrier!
We have a wonderful farrier named Josh who is amazing with all of our horses! He is patient, even with some of the horses who are kind of annoying and keep trying to put their feet down. He knows that many of our horses have arthritis or some other physical issue that make it hard to pick up their feet, and we also have some horses who have been abused and are afraid of having their feet held. Josh is patient with all of them. He also reliable and always arrives on-time, which is an amazing thing for a farrier!
Thank You to Our Community!
We are very blessed to have the support of our local ETI club, which helps keep us in-the-know about evacuation plans in case of a fire, issues regarding our trail system, and just the local goings on of the canyon. We appreciate their support through the years!
We are also very lucky to have not one but three local feed stores which deliver our hay and supplements to Hanaeleh on a weekly basis. They do the really heavy lifting of delivering about 25 bales of hay (around 100 pounds each!), 15 bags of grain, 20 bags of shavings, and buckets of supplements- EVERY WEEK! It takes a lot to feed our horses, but we do everything we can to keep them healthy and happy, and we are so very thankful to the feed stores for making that happen.

Thank You to Our Social Media Peeps!
Finally, thank you to all of those people who support Hanaeleh on-line. You help us by sharing posts of horses who need homes, telling other people about Hanaeleh, and posting wonderful, supportive messages on our social media pages that help keep us going. We so appreciate all of your kind words to our newsletter and to our social media posts- thank you so much!
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!
We hope that everyone has a wonderful thanksgiving, and you are surrounded by those who care about you. We know that our Thanksgiving will be full of love and gratitude.
