Shelter their little hearts

We have jokingly refered to East Tennessee Miniature Horse and Donkey Rescue's shelters as "tent city" for quite a while now. Nothing fancy,  "tent city" has sheltered over 250 miniature horses, donkeys and mules over the last three years. The minis have found safety, love and  have had their lives changed forever under these tarps.
Though our mission is ongoing, these tents just won't last another winter.  Please help us place permanent shetlers over their little hearts.

We currently have 4 small paddocks and 5 small pastures that house approximately 40 miniatures at any given time.  Each pasture currently has one or more of our "tent city" shelters. Our goal is to replace these with 6 metal carports - every one carport will provide shetler for two pastures by straddling the fence line.  Rock and stall mats will provide dry footing for the minis.  

If you would like to have a shelter or field named for a beloved one or show sponsorshipof a business we will create a sign for that paddock or pasture with the name of your choosing.  A $500 donation will allow you to name a paddock. $1000 will allow you to choose the name of a pasture.
*** For businesses: please contact us about name guidelines and stipulations.  Examples would be Paddock "Silver" (in loving memory Smith Family) or Pasture "Hero" (sponsored by Smith Business)

So that everyone gets to help with names, we will be doing online voting to name the paddocks and pastures that do not get full sponsorships. Just remember, no matter how much you donate,  you are  providing weather proof  shelter that will safely shelter their little hearts as they heal in rescue.
