Dear Friends, 

It is with GREAT SADNESS that we must announce the closing of Checkpoint One due to lack of funding, donations, and grants. Our last day will be December 31st 2020.

We understand that this is an emotional announcement not only for us, but for our community as well. Please know this decision was our very last option, and it was so very hard to make.

We are aware that our community's Military and First Responder populations truly need us, and that over the past 4 years, we have become an important mental health and stress management resource to them.

We are heartbroken that we can no longer fill this need.

For those of you who are concerned about the animals in our program, please know that most of them are going back to the loving homes they came from, and we are making arrangements for the secure futures of the east of them. 

That being said, we still need donations now and until December 31st 2020. Our Checkpoint One Team has active clients to see and horses to care for until our last day.


To donate please go to our PayPal link or checks can be sent to our PO Box
