HELLO and welcome to Skydog Sanctuary.   We are a 501c3 non-profit which gives lifelong sanctuary and love to at-risk wild horses rescued from across America as well as reunite wild horse families torn apart during roundups.  My name is Clare Staples-Read and with my husband Chris Read we rescued our first resident, a donkey named Vinnie, on our very first date and we both quickly realized that our love of animals was a shared bond which ran very deep. 

We started rescuing horses, firstly at my small five acre ranch in Calabasas, then we married and moved to an 11 acre ranch nearby and, when I truly understood just how many mustangs were in need we realized the best thing we could give these wild horses was LAND.  We purchased a 9000 acre ranch in Bend Oregon to be able to give space and freedom back to the wild horses who now call it home.   

Maintaining Skydog is obviously expensive with high vet bills due to the special needs and sick horses we take.  With farrier bills, feed and hay bills which rise with each horse we save, we need all the help you can give us to be able to rescue more mustangs in need.  One of the most successful ways we have used to raise awareness and educate people is through social media and our funny, touching, beautiful and heartwarming content has become very well shared and enjoyed.  In becoming a Patron it means access to unique and special footage and photographs that you can only get by donating here. 

The horses at Skydog Sanctuary are at the heart of what we do and they are the incredible ambassadors for all the wild horses left behind in BLM holding pens or in Kill-pens waiting to ship to slaughter.  We have been lucky enough to be featured on The Dodo several times and there are a few horses as well as a mini hinny called Cassidy and a Great Dane named Barkley who have become stars in their own right helping raise awareness of our sanctuary and the work we do.  We cannot save more animals without more ways to raise funds and especially to be able to rely on a certain amount of money coming in to support us through long winters where we have to throw a lot of hay to keep our horses healthy.

So far we have been able to rescue over 80 horses in need, as well as some farm animals at livestock auctions where we were saving a horse.   We also have quite a number of donkeys and mules, who are also in great need of help after having been rounded up from Public lands and ending up in Kill Pens or at auction.   To find out more about us you can go to skydogranch.org  We are also on Instagram @skydogsanctuary and Facebook as Skydog Sanctuary
