Heart of Phoenix wishes to Thank the ASPCA for a Grant covering two seizure cases!


Operating in the 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 is overwhelming, so the conditions we encounter for neglected horses in West Virginia can be extreme. Our team is constantly faced with situations where most would 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, but we also impact some Kentucky and Ohio areas where at risky and neglected horses are very underserved.

The horses, ponies and donkeys that come to Heart of Phoenix were not simply kept in less than adequate conditions or at risk of auction, they are typically horrific starvation and abuse cases.

We know in order to see radical change, we stay progressive and creative by expanding our impact through programs to empower communities, law enforcement and horse owners.

In this area, there are fates worse than slaughter awaiting some of the most neglected horses in the USA. They are horses that have long been without anyone to be their voice, so We implore you to pause, to hear their stories and allow us to come to their rescue with your support. 

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 over 220 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 2014: 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!
