Buy A Bale

Help us keep our hay loft full this winter!
Each year the MSPCA at Nevins Farm’s Equine & Farm Animal Center spends almost $60,000 on hay.  With more horses arriving every day (not to mention the goats, sheep and rabbits!) this cost will only increase.

Will you help us keep our hay loft full this year?  As little as $7 can buy a bale of hay to help feed the dozens of horses in our care.  Click here to learn more and to donate.
