ANIMAL SPONSORSHIPS HELP US A LOT
IN FINANCING OUR ACTIVITIES

The monthly sponsorship contributions from our sponsors make it possible for us to offer a good “home” for our animals with their top performance in the field of therapy.
For more information and which of our animals is currently urgently looking for sponsors, please contact us by email info@lichtblickhof. At or just give us a call: + 43 (0)680 441 48 49 ... we are very grateful to you for that.

training sponsorship

for 50€ / month receive a training sponsorship.

Training is extremely important in animal therapy. The horses go through a 3-year training and are continuously trained. Supervision is not only something for people, but also plays a major role in our animals. The equipment of the horses must be constantly checked and, if necessary, renewed or improved. Of course, the sheep, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats and dogs must not be untrained either. We attach great importance to the animals learning to treat people with respect without denying their nature.
What does the training sponsorship include:

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired

 

For more information, please sign up below info@lichtblickhof. At! We look forward to you!

Thanks to Kathi Humpelmair, who is a training sponsor from Alaska!

Food sponsorship

For 30€ / month receive a feed sponsorship.

Horses in nature eat for a very large part of the day and travel large distances. Our horses live in an open stable to offer them these opportunities as best as possible.

What does the food sponsorship include:

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired

For more information, please sign up below info@lichtblickhof. At! We look forward to you!

 

Hoof Care Sponsorship

For 30€ / month receive a hoof care sponsorship

Approximately every 6 weeks the horses must receive a hoof care. You can imagine it a bit like cutting and filing our nails. Only of course much bigger! It is also particularly important because the horses stand, walk and run with their hooves on different surfaces (sand, asphalt, gravel, grass, earth, ...) and, unlike us, they do not have shoes on. Therefore, the hooves must be filed in such a way that no misalignments occur. One hoof care costs around €50 per horse.

What does the hoof care sponsorship include?

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired
  • Experience hoof care live once

For more information, please sign up below info@lichtblickhof. At! We look forward to you!

THANK YOU, dear Sabine Pfeiler, for making regular hoof care possible for Miakoda!

 

Health and well-being sponsorship

For 100€ / month receive this special sponsorship.

Of course, the animals have to go to the vet regularly and since horses are such large animals, he (or actually most of the time she) comes to the stable. Once a year, the horses' teeth are checked and the edges are ground down so that they are not in pain. Then they are regularly vaccinated and dewormed. Of course there are some costs involved. Unfortunately, it also sometimes happens that a horse gets injured or has colic (unfortunately this usually happens at times when the veterinarians are not normally open (e.g. at night), which means that it costs more.

What does the health and well-being sponsorship include?

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired
  • A photo with the horse

For more information about which of our horses is currently urgently looking for sponsors, please contact us info@lichtblickhof. At! We look forward to you!

One person who has already taken this step is Ms. Martina Pitlik, who has accompanied our Kurumi and us for a long time. Thanks also to other wonderful sponsors, Maria Gottschy is the proud sponsor of Yakari, Melanie Haas supports us with her sponsorship for Tokata and Natalie Meuschel has also taken on a health and well-being sponsorship for one of our horses! Cocuya was able to win Christine Scherleithner as her godmother.

 

sheep sponsorship

For 25€ / month receive a sheep wool sponsorship

Sheep are great animals! They are smaller than the horses and also live in a herd. The children can learn a lot about groups from them. Of course, sheep need a lot of care because they are very sensitive animals. The shearers come twice a year to free them from their thick wool. The wool is then brought to the wool workshop, where it is further processed. The claws must be trimmed and they are regularly dewormed like all other animals.

What does the sheep wool sponsorship include:

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired

For more information on which of our sheep is currently looking for sponsors, please contact us info@lichtblickhof. At ! We look forward to you!

 

Small animal sponsorship

For 10€ / month receive a small animal sponsorship.

Even though they are so small, they can do a lot. Our rabbits and guinea pigs live in a large enclosure where they are always offered a lot of variety. They are trained to be able to give children and young people glimpses of hope. Of course, we need money for all this, because even the little ones need enough food and, unfortunately, a veterinarian from time to time.

What does the sponsorship for the little ones include:

  • A sponsorship certificate
  • Mention on the homepage
  • A Facebook post if desired

Working hours and conditions depend on the children and young people and our animals, which have to be taken care of every day and in all weathers.

Voluntary work can take place in the context of helper events, stable work, but also in the context of therapy projects. We are happy to provide an overview of all necessary processes and activities in the entire company. The aim of our work is satisfied clients and animals who work together in a protected space.

What is worth living for! Elizabeth is terminally ill. Since she was born, she has spent more time in the hospital than in her childhood room. Elizabeth is nine years old. Happy hours are all that matters to them!

The reason for Elisabeth's suffering is a severe congenital heart defect. Even after numerous operations, it is uncertain what else she has to deal with. But Elizabeth is strong. She has an iron will to live and draws strength from the happy hours with our therapy horses. 

"Ever since the therapy mare Atacama from e-motion nudged my Elisabeth, my girl has been enjoying life. 

That must not be lost ... please!" Elisabeth's mother has tears in her eyes: "Elisabeth lives with the horses for the time, that gives her so much strength!" Elisabeth urgently needs this strength, because the constant uncertainty about how things will go on and the many setbacks are hard to bear. When Elisabeth is with "her" therapy horses Atacama and Pipistrela, she is happy. This prepares them for the times in the hospital, for all the pain and fear.

Elisabeth is currently back in the hospital, her condition is critical. She wrote this letter to her beloved horses...
Thanks to our therapy, Elisabeth has the strength not to give up. But her parents are poor. Elisabeth needs you – now! With 2.650 euros, Elisabeth's therapy would be secured for a year! If 150 people give 18 euros each, we can fulfill the greatest wish of the terminally ill Elisabeth!

Please give Elisabeth happy hours! 
Nine-year-old Elisabeth is a brave girl! Despite her serious, incurable illness, although she doesn't know what else is in store for her - Elisabeth wants to live. That was not always so.

FLORIAN NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW
PROJECT DONOR OD. SPONSORSHIP WANTED

Florian will soon no longer be able to walk.
Unfortunately, this sad truth cannot be shaken. But we can delay the moment when that happens - thanks to Equotherapy!

Florian's parents realized early on that there was something wrong with their beloved son. However, the diagnosis destroyed all hope: Due to an incurable disease, Florian's muscles were already dwindling in childhood and would eventually fail. Florian fought so hard to walk. But barring a miracle, he'll soon need a wheelchair.

In order to delay this process, Florian would have to train a lot and hard. But even now he gets tired very quickly and cannot counteract the muscle atrophy.

Equotherapy, therapy with horses, helps Florian in two ways:

  1. His muscles are strengthened and his mobility is retained for longer.
  2. He is happy with the horses. From this he draws courage and new strength!
    Thanks to equotherapy, Florian saves time!

In the summer, Florian spends a week with us Lichtblickhof spent. And lo and behold: The muscle atrophy could be delayed by the therapy with our horses!Florian has so much happiness and joy in his stomach when he thinks of his therapy horse Daisy and the time at e-motion.Florian was so happy and motivated on the back of his Daisy that he didn't even notice how much strength he needed to keep his balance. Thus, an otherwise unthinkable muscle strengthening was possible.Now Florian needs your help!If Florian continues his therapy once a week from now on, his muscle strength can be maintained longer. The longer the therapy lasts, the more time he gains!

CHARLOTTE NEEDS YOUR HELP NOW
Please give Charlotte a ray of hope!

"I wish I could fly, then I wouldn't be in pain!"

Charlotte is six years old and terminally ill. With every movement she has to be careful not to dislocate something. Osteoarthritis and severe pain plague the little girl every day. Charlotte's condition is due to a genetic, incurable disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Her joints are hypermobile and are already so worn that she is struggling with osteoarthritis. Charlotte cannot and must not run, romp and jump. But even for painting or handicrafts she often lacks the strength because her fingers hurt so much. Therapy with our horses helps Charlotte a lot: she can let herself be rocked and relaxed on the back of the gentle mare Prinsessa.
Out of sheer enthusiasm, she forgets all her pain and recharges her batteries with a lot of strength and joie de vivre!

Charlotte is terminally ill and in constant pain, sometimes even when standing and sitting. At the age of six she already suffers from osteoarthritis. She cannot and must not run, romp and jump. Because her fingers hurt, she often cannot even draw. Our therapy helps Charlotte a lot.

Her greatest wish is to have a week of intensive therapy this summer Lichtblickhof close. With as little as 15, 20 or 30 euros you are making a significant contribution to Charlotte's urgently needed intensive therapy!

"Mom, it hurts so much...!" "Mom, it hurts so much...!" Some days even standing or sitting is torture for little Charlotte. At the age of six she is already suffering from osteoarthritis and severe pain.
