Heart of Phoenix wishes to Thank the ASPCA for the Grant Awards to Cover Travel to TWO Equine conferences


Operating in the extremely high needs area of the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, 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. Because human Poverty is overwhelming, the conditions we encounter in the horses we rescue are 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 Kentucky and Ohio areas where the 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 must stay progressive and creative by expanding our impact through programs to empower communities, law enforcement and horse owners.

Here in Appalachia, there are fates worse than slaughter awaiting the neglected horses that have long been without a voice here, 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 200 horses.

A high standard of rehab and care requires a large 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 the horses in HOP to protect them should they fall off our watchful radar after adoption!


Many over the over 200 Equine Lives Impacted by Heart of Phoenix


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!
