To our Wildhorse Family and New Volunteers
We hope that you and your family remain in good health and spirits during this uncertain time. We are truly grateful to our donors and volunteers that continue to support our mission to keep our animals healthy and happy while us humans navigate through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
With the recent CDC Recommendations, we have updated our COVID-19 Policy for Wildhorse.
Wildhorse is currently closed to the public with no upcoming events scheduled for the remainder of April. Volunteers and Medical Staff will be the only personnel allowed at the ranch at this time.
New Volunteer Orientation's are being conducted via ZOOM Meetings. Trainings will be conducted on an individual and one-on-one basis with the CDC guidelines put in place.
If a Volunteer does not feel well, we ask them to please remain home and take care of themselves and their families first. Our Management Team has a contingency plan in place with an alternate Volunteer population that we can call upon. We do ask that Volunteers please let us know as soon as possible when they are unable to attend a shift so that we can find a quick replacement.
With the new recommendations from the CDC regarding facial coverings, we have ordered face masks and gloves for the ranch for our volunteers to be protected. While, these are not required for shift, we are following the recommendation of the CDC to "wear cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain." Unfortunately, with these items being in high demand, we have an expected delivery date between April 7th - 20th.
We encourage our volunteers to wear face coverings and gloves during their shifts and recommend them bringing (or making) their own if they so choose as we're awaiting our supply to arrive.
It is critical for our Volunteers to maintain the 6-feet social distancing where possible while on shift and to wash hands before, during and after their scheduled time at Wildhorse. We have placed hand sanitizers in several areas of the ranch as well as antibacterial soap and regular soap (for those unable to tolerate the antibacterial kind) at our public sink areas. Our restroom continues to be cleaned and disinfected several times throughout the day.
Wildhorse continues to ensure that we have access to Feed, Hay, Medication and Supplements should it become challenging to obtain these items in the near future.
As we continue to learn more about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we will continue to update you should something change within our daily operations.
Our Management Team is dedicated to keeping our Wildhorse Family (both 4 and 2 legged) healthy, happy and safe during this time.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of the Wildhorse Management Team Members.
