ILEHC Members are the backbone of the organization and help to provide for much of the day-to-day necessities required to care for its horses and maintain operations.
Bronze Club Member $100 Donation
Bronze Club Members help to provide for routine, everyday items such as dietary supplements, first aid essentials, fly spray and control, blankets, grooming and training equipment, buckets, stable equipment, etc. and of course peppermints and carrots!!
Silver Club $250 Donation
Silver Club Members help to provide the ILEHC with essential support, so that when necessary, we are able to provide our horses with this final act of kindness. Additionally, it is the hope of the ILEHC to grow the Silver Club in order that we may help other horse owners who are in need of financial assistance in order to provide their animals with humane euthanasia. It is our strongest desire that no horse should ever be allowed to suffer unnecessarily because an owner cannot afford the costs involved with humane euthanasia and body disposition.
Gold Club $500 Donation
Gold Members help to provide ILEHC horses with essential support necessary for their overall health and well-being. Wellness care consists of veterinary exams, vaccinations, prescriptive medications, de-worming, hoof care, dental care, etc.
Platinum $1,000 Donation
Platinum Club Members help to provide ILEHC horses with the most essential of life's necessities - feed, hay, bedding, shelter. Each donation of $1,000 will provide 60 days of sustenance for an ILEHC horse while we work to rehabilitate, retrain, and re-home them.
Founder’s Society $5,000
Founder's Society Members help to provide the ILEHC with the financial means to forge forward in our mission to protect horses from abuse, neglect, abandonment and slaughter. A special acknowledgement honoring the deep commitment of each Founder's Society member will be placed on the home page of the ILEHC website and within any printed media published by the ILEHC in advertisement of special events and seminars. A link to their business or organization website will also be included on the ILEHC website, should the member so desire.
