Sponsor a Horse
Adopt a Horse
Volunteers are the force behind the magic that happens here every day. Because we truly cherish our volunteers, we try to offer many fun and exciting opportunities for people of all interests, experiences and backgrounds. Volunteers can work with the horses or behind the scenes in many different capacities. Volunteering at CERA offers many learning opportunities for people of all ages and provides a stable environment to have fun, relax and be yourself. Volunteering here will allow you to feel the rewards and accomplishments of what you've done and what you are going to do with your future, as well as expand your relationships among other individuals and horses.

The success stories of CERA rescue horses going on to be wonderful partners in their new homes are almost endless. Adoption can be one of the most rewarding and wonderful experiences of your life. Please check out the OUR HORSES page, as we often have horses that are rideable in all disciplines, as well as non-rideable horses that can be great companions. Here at CERA, we believe that every horse should be loved and valued.
We are grateful for the many individuals and corporations who so generously support us by donating goods (hay, feed, halters, supplements, etc.) and services (medical, farrier, printing, etc.) If you're interested in donating supplies for our horses, please call Susan or Nancy at Monroe Hardware (704) 289-9491. They know what CERA needs on a weekly basis.
Of course, you can always make a one-time donation. Donating is quick and easy; just click on the PayPal button below. You may also send a check to the address listed on the CONTACT. Several employers will match their employees donation to non-profits. This is money that is deducted right from your paycheck, your employer matches your tax deductible donation and sends CERA a check.
