Does Bluebonnet accept donated goods?
Bluebonnet accepts donations of hay, grain, de-wormers, vaccinations and other medical supplies as well as feed supplements and medications. These items will be used to care for horses in the rescue. You can also donate new and used tack, farm/ranch equipment and horse/stock trailers which may be used for the horses in the rescue or sold at a fundraiser to raise money. Donations of horse or ranch themed art, home decor, jewelry or clothing will be sold at a BEHS fundraiser to raise money to care for the horses. Other donations will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Donating a Horse
I can’t keep my horse. Can I donate him to Bluebonnet?
Generally Bluebonnet stays full of horses from neglect cases and abandoned/estray horses. It is very rare that we have the room to take in a donated horse.
Can I specify in my will that my horses go to Bluebonnet in case of my untimely death?
Since Bluebonnet stays full of horses from neglect cases, abandoned horses and estray horses, we do not accept horses who are willed to us.
What is sponsorship?
There are three types of sponsorships. You can sponsor a specific Bluebonnet horse and the money you donate will go to pay for his care. Companies can become Corporate Sponsors and the funds they donate will help cover the operating expenses of the rescue or assist the rescue with specific programs. Individuals and companies can also become event sponsors. Event sponsors receive advertising and other benefits in exchange for their monetary contributions, and those contributions are used to help put on the event.
