100% of all proceeds from fundraising efforts goes directly to the daily care of our horses. We are a volunteer run organization and receive no governmental funding. We rely solely on donations, fundraising events and the occasional grant to meet the many needs of horses coming into our care. 

 Remember there are many ways to help the horses and  we always need volunteers as well as we have many nice horses looking for homes. I have more rescue pictures on facebook under Shooting Star Equine Rescue or Careen Critchfield Cain, so please come take a look.. 


Rescue T-shirts and Ball caps

New arrivals~ Our new Shooting Star logo is now available on high quality cotton T-shirts and ball caps which helps to support the medical needs of our horses. Each shirt or ball cap is yours for a $ 20 donation and this goes directly into our medical fund to provide necessary shots, worming, and emergency medical care.  Youth to adult extra large sizes in white or cream are currently in stock.  If you’d like a sweatshirt, a different color or type of  shirt, please ask us as we will do what we can to make it available to you.  

Duni Original  Horsesplash Paintings

Duni is Careen’s personal horse and is the only “non-rescue”, so he helps support his rescue buddies by “painting” creative, one of a kind acrylic paintings on canvas by holding a paintbrush in his mouth and splashing it across the canvas. He has quite a fan club and his paintings of all sizes, shapes and colors adorn the walls of everything from living rooms to children’s bedrooms to living quarters in horse trailers.  Paintings may be framed or hung directly from the canvas, depending on preference. Sizes range from 4 x 6 and up with many options for canvas styles. 

Colorful greeting cards ideal for thank you’s or special occasions are also available. Many framed and unframed originals are available as well as custom orders with your choice of colors and canvas are welcome. We encourage you to visit the rescue and have Duni create a special piece of artwork just for you or for that someone special.  A unique gift sure to become a conversation piece in any household. A certificate of authenticity with a stamp of Duni’s hoof print along with pictures of him completing the painting is provided.

Horseshoes with Heart

Horseshoes are  carefully designed with  a variety of stones, beads, horsehair, wirewrapping and charms which represent “good luck” and also bring good luck to the sanctuary horse whose needs they help support. For a donation of only $ 25 you receive your chosen horseshoe with a picture and history of the special needs sanctuary horse residing at the rescue whom benefits by your donation.
