Volunteer & Community Service Hours

We are a 501c3 and happy to help you fill Community Service Hours

If you are looking for activities to attend check out our Sunday Farmers Market and Saturday Horse Class below. There are also many ways to help us help the animals in need via the Internet these days.  Here are some ideas, but we are open to creativity and self starters! We are happy to have your help and then sign off on community service hours for local students.

Hold a Fundraiser

You can sell something, throw a party, bake sale, garage sale, online campaign or just ask your friends.

Raise Funds Online

You can simply follow and share our online and email fundraising activities or you can create your own!  Start by joining our Newsletter and following us on Social Media

Donate a nightly or monthly percentage of your Business Sales to Defensa

If you don’t have a Business, maybe you can work with a local Rincon business – or even a business in another part of the World you have connections to, and come up with a fund raising idea.  It really can be as simple as ONE DAY OF SALES go towards Defensa.  And then we can promote it on facebook!  It’s a win win … brings exposure to the business offering the percentage and raises money for street animals in need!

Saturday Free Horse Class

Volunteer to help us at our weekly Saturday Free Horse Class.  Even if you aren’t currently comfortable around horses we can help you learn the skills to help others around our horses.   If you are highly skilled in an area of horse training or care we would love for you to lead a class.   We have a few horses we use in the class but we are also open to those who have horses and would like to use them in a class.

Sunday Farmer’s Market – Bring a Foster

Sometimes our foster families are unable to bring their foster to the Sunday Rincon Farmer’s Market.  If you’d like to help, we would connect you directly with a foster family and together you can coordinate getting the animal to the Plaza from 10am to noon on Sunday.
