In an ongoing effort to support the community, GCS employees participate in Jeans Days each month. In exchange for a donation of $15 or more, employees are allowed to wear jeans on Fridays and Saturdays.

Happy Hooves Equine Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit that relies solely on donations and the volunteers that help. Happy Hooves Equine Rescue provides all rescued horses with veterinary services, equine dentistry, and their own farrier (a craftsman who trims and shoes horses' hooves).

Happy Hooves Equine Rescue takes in horses who need both physical and emotional support. All horses are welcome. Once rehabilitated, Happy Hooves Equine Rescue assists both horses and ponies in finding homes with people who love them, are willing to do what is necessary to provide appropriate care for their well-being, and give them a second chance at being riding horses or pasture companions.
