OWNER ASSISTANCE SUPPORT PROGRAMS

Castleton Ranch has developed special support programs for horse owners which is separate from our Helping Hooves program.
These support programs are available to all horse owners in the State of California and operate year round.

Gelding Reimbursement

Too many horses are being bred with little or no concern for their future welfare. Castleton Ranch will provide a partial reimbursement to horse owners for gelding stud colts and stallions.

To receive a reimbursement for gelding your horse

  2. Send your receipt to Castleton Ranch Horse Rescue Inc., 28581 Old Ranch Dr., Valley Center, CA 92082. Please mark your envelope, “Support Program”.

Reimbursement will be $40.00 per horse if the cost of the gelding was in excess of $100.00 otherwise the reimbursement shall be $25.00. In the case of a cryptorchid, the reimbursement will be a flat $80.00.

Reimbursement is not based upon your vets total bill.

We urgently need your support to sustain the operation needs of both rescue sanctuaries!

Beyond the Rainbow

Sadly many of our companion horses do reach a point when quality of life has gone or old age has just caught up with them. These horses should not undergo the trauma of being sent to an auction.

Our support program Beyond the Rainbow, will provide a partial reimbursement to those owners who make the right decision and have their horse euthanized humanely to end their suffering, with dignity.

To receive reimbursement for humanely euthanizing your horse

  1. Send a copy of your veterinary receipt showing that your horse was humanely euthanized.
  2. Send your receipt to Castleton Ranch Horse Rescue Inc, 28581 Old Ranch Drive, Valley Center, CA 92082. Please mark your envelope “Support Program”.

Reimbursement for euthanasia disposal/burial shall be $150.00 total per horse. $ 75.00 for euthanasia without disposal/burial.

Please ensure that your name and address with contact telephone number is on your documentation along with contact information of your vet.

Reimbursement is not based upon your total bill.
