We’re headed back to the Eagles for another lively dinner fundraiser! Join us on Sunday, September 8th starting at 5pm for a down-home country dinner of chicken friend steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, salad, and green beans all for just $7.
100% of proceeds from this event are donated back to OHR. The drinks are cheap, the food is good, and the price is right — and it’s all for a great cause!
Our breakfast bash is back— this time with a whole new spin!
Join us for an end-of-the-year gathering of equine enthusiasts, volunteers, sponsors, supporters—everyone is welcome. This year we are coming together to enjoy what most equestrians never get: a lazy Saturday morning! With busy schedules, horses to feed and ride, stalls to muck, there's hardly ever time to sit around with friends to enjoy breakfast. We're tired of missing out, so we are hosting a Friday night equestrian-themed breakfast-for-dinner fundraiser to benefit Oregon Horse Rescue, 501(c)(3). Guests can kick their boots off, show up in pajamas or comfy clothes, and hear about our exciting work in equine rescue while enjoying live music, mimosas, and dancing.
Sign up to attend a new volunteer orientation online on the YourVolunteers platform when you register to be a regular, active volunteer. Orientation is required for those who wish to participate in our regular volunteer opportunities. One-time volunteers only need to submit an interest form and do not need to attend orientation.
See our volunteer page for more information.
Please note that orientations are held at the OHR rescue facility, not our office address. Location details will be send out via email to those who register for the event.
We are offering our next quarterly volunteer opportunity of the year open to ALL interested volunteers on Saturday, June 15th from 1-4 pm.
Come out to OHR to enjoy some time outdoors as you help us eradicate invasive plant species from our pastures. Pasture management is an important part of caring for the OHR horses and your help would ensure that the horses have additional room to roam. Don’t miss this chance to help a good cause and meet like-minded folks in your community!
Important Note: Group volunteer opportunities do not involve direct interaction with the horses. No horse experience is required. All participants will need to submit a signed release from liability form and a digital interest form at oregonhorserescue.com/volunteer prior to volunteering. Email Lea at email@example.com to RSVP and for additional details.
Bring the whole family out to the Oregon Horse Rescue facility for a fun-filled afternoon at the rescue ranch. Meet some of our rescue horse ambassadors and adoptable horses, learn about equine welfare and what it takes to keep horses, paint your own keepsake horseshoe or get your face painted!
Enjoy the views from the rescue ranch while playing a round of horseshoes or horse-poop bingo, and live music by Spence Palermo. We'll have a good old fashioned BBQ grill-out for purchase as well as Oakshire and Viking Braggot's finest brews on tap. You can also bid on some unique silent auction items and browse our HUGE tack sale. Event entry is free, and donations are welcomed to help support our mission and cause.
Please Note: This event is held at our Facilities address 28364 Crow Rd. NOT our Pacific Avenue office address.
