Our corporate sponsors are companies that have donated one or more items to help support CWER. One, Country Supply, makes a donation to us on every order you place while using our care code! Some, like Neddy’s, are ongoing sponsors who have provided items on several occasions. Others, like Americas Equine, provide us discounts on every order we place. A few, like Valley Vet, have made a single donation to support things like our Open House raffle, and we hope they will assist us again in the future.

CWER  is VERY proud to be sponsored by Blue Rose Farm and Animal Communication services!
