Corral of Comfort has been in operation since 1991. All monetary donations go directly to the upkeep and care of the horses, as well as day to day operations. Last year you were very kind to the rescue and we greatly appreciate your continued support.

We work very hard to rehabilitate and care for neglected, abused, and abandoned horses. Injured horses are rescued and brought back to health, then placed in carefully screened, loving homes.

Corral of Comfort also works with WOW (Wonderful Outdoor World), which introduces urban youth to outdoor recreation and environmental education. We also offer an educational program for inner city and underprivileged children that we call "Pets in the Hood." "Pets" gives inner-city children the opportunity to help rehabilitate the horses and experience life outside of the city environment. We believe this activity helps to instill values and a sense of responsibility in these children.

It takes a tremendous amount of work and money to keep the ranch operating. We have relocated and are in the process of setting up at our new location. You can imagine the difficulty in moving an operation this large involving horses in various states of health.

Please help us in any of the following ways:

Vehicle Donations

We accept almost any vehicle, as long as it has the necessary DMV documentation to prove ownership. You can deduct 100% of the fair market value, which can be as high as high Blue Book. We also accept vans, trucks, motorcycles, recreational vehicles, boats, commercial vehicles, real estate, jewelry, and fine art. All proceeds from these items go to pay horse expenses.



Horses in Need

We take horses from private parties. We do require a minimum donation of $150 and up to care for each donated horse until a sponsor can be found. This is a tax-deductible donation, which includes the value of the horse. We realize that some people cannot afford their horses or must donate them due to family problems or other situations.

Also you must provide a letter stating you are donating this horse, with a description and value of the horse, to: Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc.. This is for tax purposes. We also need any vet records and a record of what you have done with the horse so that we are aware of the horse's needs and his medical history.

If you are interested in donating a horse we require answers to the following:
  1. Why do you wish to donate this horse?
  2. Where did you get the horse and how long have you had it?
  3. What is the horse's age?
  4. Who is your vet?
  5. Are shots and de-worming current?
  6. What is the horse's level of training, if any?
  7. Is the horse good with kids?
  8. Where is the horse being boarded?
  9. Is it sound; is there anything wrong with the horse, special needs?
  10. Is the horse underweight?
  11. Does the horse have any bad habits?
  12. Is the horse on medications?
We would be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.

Wills, Trusts, & Memorial Gifts

Trust page

  1. Bequests in Wills
    You can give an outright gift of cash, securities, real estate or personal property and designate it for transfer to JHR. You can make a gift of described property, a percentage of your estate, the residual of your estate, or a specific dollar amount. The following is suggested language for including Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc. in your will.

  2. Testamentary Gift
    I give and bequeath to Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc., located in Chatsworth, California, the sum of ($______) to be used by its Board of Directors as deemed advisable within its corporation powers.

  3. Testamentary Residuary Clause
    All the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, I give, devise and bequeath to Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc.,located in Chatsworth, California, to be used by its Board of Directors as deemed advisable within its corporation powers.

  4. Contingent interest clause
    I give and bequeath to (name the person) the sum of _________(spell out)_______ Dollars ($_______) in the event that he/she shall survive me. Should said (name the person) predecease me, I give and bequeath said sum to Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc., located in Chatsworth, California, to be used by its Board of Directors as deemed advisable within its corporation powers. For Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc. tax ID number, please contact the office at (661) 361-9188 or via email at www.corralofcomfort.org.

  5. Living Trusts
    In most states, a will must go through a probate process that can often be expensive and time consuming. By creating a revocable living trust you can avoid probate while naming Corral of Comfort Horse Rescue Inc. as a beneficiary of the trust, much as you would by making a bequest in a will.

  6. Life Insurance Policies
    Insurance can often be a fairly inexpensive way for you to leave a sizeable gift for animals. If your existing policy is no longer needed for its initial purpose (such as your children' education), you can make a gift of it to JHR with tax deductions equal to its cash/replacement value. If you are younger, this is a way to "create" a larger gift than you might have thought possible.

  7. Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust
    This and the Charitable Remainder Unitrust allow you to make a gift and keep the income. The Annuity Trust provides a fixed income for the rest of your life, and you can name another to receive income as well. The principal passes to JHR after the last income beneficiary dies. This trust also provides a charitable tax deduction and avoids capital gains taxes when appreciated assets are sold.

  8. Charitable Remainder Unitrust
    Like the Annuity Trust, the Unitrust provides life incomes, tax savings and avoidance of capital gains taxes. It differs in that the income from the trust is based on the value of the trust assets as revalued annually. During inflationary periods, when the principal may grow, the trust income can increase correspondingly, keeping pace with inflation.

  9. Charitable Life Estate
    Give your home, a farm or even a vacation cabin to JHR now while continuing to enjoy its use for the rest of your life, or the lives of you and your spouse. JHR does not receive the property until the last tenant has died. This is like leaving the property to us in your will except, by doing so now, you will receive a substantial tax deduction.

  10. The "Totten" Trust
    The simplest of all trusts: this is accomplished by simply signing a card at your bank that leaves an account "in trust for" JHR. This action is revocable and the assets of the account are yours for the rest of your life, passing to JHR free of probate, after your death. This information is meant to offer you accurate information in a readable form. It is not meant to be professional tax or legal advice. We will be happy to provide financial or other information to any professional you choose.



The Codicil to a Will

You Have a Will, but it is old and outdated. What can you do to make it conform to your current situation and wishes? Write a codicil. A Codicil is simply an addition or change to your Will, like a postscript (P.S.) to a letter. It can be very brief or quite detailed. The alternative to this simple addition is to rewrite the entire Will and invalidate the old one at considerable expense in some cases.

Your codicil is a legal document and must conform with all the formalities of a regular will. In California, for example, it may be handwritten, but you must follow the rules: On a blank sheet of paper (no letterhead), totally in your hand writing, signed and dated. No witnesses required.

Why would you want a codicil? Let's assume you have purchased a new car and would like to leave that car to your son. Your codicil can read, "In addition to the other specific gifts and bequests in my Will, I give my 1999 Buick Century Convertible to my son, John Arsenault, of Bloomfield, New Mexico." If you want to make certain that everything is precise and will conform to the state law, you can have an attorney prepare the codicil for you. The legal fees for this should be considerably less than for a Will. You can have any attorney do the work. It does not have to be the one who prepared the original Will.

Sometimes a codicil is not a practical solution. If, for example, you sold your company which represented the major asset in your estate, you undoubtedly would want to draft a new Will.

Codicils are practical for relatively simple changes, usually brought about by a death, a birth, a divorce, a move across a state line or the addition of a bequest to a charity. Here are some simple examples:

Your first grandchild has been born after you completed your Will. Your codicil could say, "I leave $10,000 to any grandchildren living at my death." Or, specifically, "I leave $10,000 to my grandson, Daniel George The person you named as executor or trustee in your Will has died. You can replace the person who died in the codicil. If you made a bequest to someone who has predeceased you, the codicil will revoke that gift and designate a new beneficiary. If you inherit an asset, you may wish to designate it specifically for charity, instead of becoming a part of the rest and residue of your estate. Codicils usually involve changing the wording in specific paragraphs of your will. When making a change or adding to a paragraph, it should be restated in its entirety, so that the new paragraph, as stated in the codicil, completely replaces the original paragraph in the will. Or course, a codicil may often change more than one paragraph, but each should be restated in its entirety.

If you move from the state where your Will was written, a codicil can be used to revalidate the Will, with new witnesses who could, if necessary, be more readily found that the original witnesses.

If you leave your assets through a Living Trust, you should have a new Will, called a "pour-over" Will. This is a very simple Will that essentially says that anything you own at the time of your death should be distributed according to the provisions of the Living Trust.

May there be peace and harmony for all beings, animals and human.

Hemmy Hay, Robert 661-361-9188 if you would like to make a donation this is our feed store never question where your donation went!



Help us feed the horses! JHR goes through 9 to 15 tons of hay each month and the more horses we rescue the more hay we need.

We can get 3 twined hay, grass or alfalfa depending on the needs of the horses, it's up to $13.95 a bale now the absolute cheapest available within driving distance. We are hoping that you will help out by buying a bale or 2 or becoming a "Hay Sponsor" even if it's a bale a month. All you have to do is donate and we'll do all the hard work of getting the hay, bringing it to the ranch and unloading it. You really do have the easy part of this. Every bale is definitely needed and will be enjoyed by a rescued horse.

Last spring we were able to get hay for $10.00 then in the summer $9.00 then $10 then $12.00 a bale and now it's up to $13.95 a bale. Let's pray that the price of hay does not keep going up. You can call Hemmey Hay at 661-361-9188 and help the horses by ording some feed for these horses in need.
