Those wanting to help a horse directly without owning can consider sponsoring one of CERA's wonderful residents. You do not have to have any horse experience to sponsor a horse. Please check out the OUR HORSES page to meet the 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.

Adopt a Horse

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. Please check with your employer to see if CERA is set up or how you can have CERA set up to receive your donation. The horses thank you for your support!
