Get Involved


ETMHD rescue is made up of volunteers who want to make a big difference in the lives of these little equines.

 Volunteers help with many aspects of the rescue:

  • handing out flyers at a fund raiser

  • assisting in a rescue or transport 

  • help with maintenance and cleaning

  • Conducting site visits

  • Socializing and/or training the minis 

  • Sitting and reading to the minis

  • Please let us know what you are willing to do to help. 

  • Volunteers must be at least 12 years old and if under 18 must have an adult with them at all times. 


ETMHD wants to improve the quality of life for miniature horses, donkeys and mules. Our goal is to help mini owners learn how to properly care for and to build a relationship with their mini. To accomplish this goal:

  • We educate the public through social media and events throughout the year 

  • We seek out ways to address and correct common issues with minis

  • We network with several other rescues in TN and surrounding states 

  • We do not judge anyone coming to us for help



Fosters help us to save the lives of minis by:

  • Housing and caring for rescues that are available for adoptions 

  • Training rescues to ensure they head off to their forever homes as respectful equine 

  • Socializing rescues to get them ready for their forever homes 

  • Providing safe havens for rescues in rehabilitation

  • Opening up more room at our main site for more minis in need of rescue

Fosters must be willing to allow potential adopters to visit or be willing to transport to the rescue in Loudon for meet and greets.
