Your support matters

Make a Donation

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, O.A.T.S. wouldn't be possible without the generous support of the community. We are especially grateful for our current sponsors.

O.A.T.S. has always strived to keep program costs low, making contributions from those outside of the organization critical to our present and future operation. And unlike larger nonprofits with high administrative costs, your donation to O.A.T.S. goes straight to our horses' mouths and to support a local program backed by success since 1997. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Donations can be mailed to: 4920 Groveland Road, Ortonville MI, 48462 or just click on the “Make a Secure Donation” button below.


A Note about our Capital Campaign:

In 2019, we will begin our Capital Campaign. These funds will be earmarked to pay off the $280,000 that is owed on our land contract that is due in 2022. All funds collected for the Capital Campaign will be placed in a separate interest-bearing account earmarked specifically to pay off our mortgage. This money will not be used for general operating purposes.

We greatly appreciate your support and generosity. If you opt to donate for this campaign, please write-in “Capital Campaign” as a note on PayPal. Thank You!

Sponsor A Horse or rider


Our horses receive regular care, exercise, a new purpose in life and lots of love from some very special people. Most of them are in their mid- to late-20s, and some have served as well into their 30s. We've had many different breeds in our program. The most common are Quarter Horses, Appaloosas and draft crosses.

If your horse/pony is mature, gentle, sound and well-trained, please contact us about a possible donation.

Or perhaps you'd like to sponsor one of our equine partners and the important work that they do. A monetary donation of $2,500 will cover the cost of feed, farrier and veterinary care for a year.
