Community Support

We would like to thank the generous individuals and businesses who continue to make it possible for us to help people and animals in need!

From 1998 to 2007, Hands & Hooves operated solely on the generosity of families and volunteers who participated in our program. We would like to thank the following families for donating the use of their facilities since we were founded:

  • Nancy & Jim Saunders
  • Bill & Linda Kase
  • Jim & Kathie Powers
  • Billy & Sarah Yakle

In 2007 we received our first substantial donation from, The Nauert Family Foundation. From this point on, we were able to offer all of our program’s services at no charge to our participants. Thank you so much, Peter!

From 2010 to 2012, Billy & Karon Hill generously shared more than $100,000 of charitable proceeds from, “The Hill County Classic”! Their generosity has enabled us to continue to offer our services free of charge as well as to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home more than 200 animals in need! Thank you so much, Billy & Karon!

In 2013, Hands & Hooves launched our “First Annual Charity Golf Classic” at the Grand Geneva in Lake Geneva, WI! Thank you for the generous support from the following individuals and businesses:
