Operating in a very high needs area of Appalachian, Heart of Phoenix believes that there is no place in the Nation with a greater need of equine rescue than here where we work daily. Poverty and a poor economy means the need is overwhelming. The conditions we encounter for neglected horses in West Virginia are extreme. Our team is constantly faced with situations where many might say, "There is No Hope." Yet time and time again, we help horses overcome odds that come very near the miraculous.

We stand as West Virginia’s largest, most effective equine rescue organization, and we also impact some areas of Kentucky and Ohio where neglected horses are underserved. We were founded in West Virginia at a time when no other organization existed to come to the aid of the horses here in need, and we realize how important it is to expand the reach of rescue through out Appalachia.

The horses, ponies and donkeys coming into Heart of Phoenix are not simply kept in less than adequate conditions or at risk of auction, they are typically horrific starvation and abuse cases many would say have no chance of being restored. Their futures are less than bleak.

In this area, there are fates worse than slaughter, unfortunately. These are horses that have long been without a voice, so We implore you to pause, to hear their stories and allow us to come to their rescue with your support. Be part of something amazing!

We know in order to see radical change, we must stay progressive and creative through the expansion of our programs to intended to educate and empower communities, law enforcement and horse owners.

Heart of Phoenix is changing the outlook for horses in the West Virginia, Southern Ohio and Eastern Kentucky area. We thank you for caring enough to consider becoming a partner in this voice.

We have helped save the lives of nearly 300 horses.

A quality standard of rehab and care requires a solid financial budget and many hours of volunteer time. We are committed to sound financial management, so we will not take in more horses than our funding allows. This means that while we are able to help many horses, many others must be turned away. We want to see Heart of Phoenix, one day, able to offer HOPE to every horse in need in the area! We believe this is possible with you on board!

We Freeze Brand and Microchip the horses in HOP to protect them should they fall off our watchful radar after adoption!

When you donate to Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue, not only do you help save the lives of severely abused and neglected horses, your donation goes back into the equine community in this economically depressed area in a tremendous way!

We were able to put tens of thousands of dollars into the local economy in 2015: Local feed stores, vets, farriers, boarding facilities, trainers, farmers and others were able to see the economic impact of having an honest rescue effort in their community,and this is another way that we improve the conditions of horses in Appalachia: By boosting the horse economy for those working with equines!

This blog is for those who might have heard some erroneous information through "old horse tales" or lines of misinformation about what body condition, top lines and big bellies mean in horses. I often say, "You don't know what you DON'T know." Well, we want to help you know.
