Are you ready to become a foster home?
S.C.A.R.E.'s vision is to ensure that all equines in the state of South Carolina live in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment. This process also allows us the opportunity to provide those people who are committed to our mission with a wonderful companion to love and cherish. If you are truly committed to providing a rescued equine(s) a safe, loving home, then I have every confidence that you will be a long-term ally in our fight to stop equine abuse and neglect. However, for those people who are only in search of “free” or “cheap” horse, you should probably go no further. It is important to understand, that horses (and other equine) that have survived the abuse and neglect that brought them into our program, may never be free of the physical or psychological trauma they were forced to endure. Thankfully, that is not usually the case, but as in most aspects of life, there are no guarantees. The one thing that I can absolutely assure you is that we will be painfully honest with all of our potential fosters of any issues that our rescues have because we don’t want to put one of our horses into a situation doomed to fail from the start, because the human/equine match didn't “fit”. The process of attempting to match people and equine is just as important and insuring that your facility is safe and free of hazards. When all of these components come together, we are well on the way to a “safe, healthy, and nurturing environment.
Hay And Forage: Adequate pasture and/or hay is one of the most important components of an equine’s diet, and is absolutely necessary to maintain adequate body condition and a healthy digestive system. Hay should be of good quality, and proper storage must be available, free from contaminants, such as mold, feces, mildew and insects etc. Guidelines will be provided for each equine.
Water: Clean, potable water must be available at all times for all equines. All water receptacles shall be kept clean and free of contaminants, and be positioned or affixed to minimize spillage. The average horse requires approximately 20 gallons per day.
