Our Mission Statement:

This organization will provide education regarding equine care to the public, assist governmental authorities in rescuing and rehabilitating equines who have been neglected or abused, and provide foster-care, rehabilitation and rehoming services for horses that have been abandoned, surrendered to the organization, or seized by law enforcement agencies. The organization will seek public funding and will accept donations to finance feed, transport, shelter, farrier and vetting costs of the horses in the organization’s care, and may assist horse owners in caring for their horses in order to prevent neglect or surrender. The organization will house horses in volunteer foster homes pending rehoming. Although the organization’s primary emphasis will be on equines, the organization may occasionally provide services to other livestock and companion animals in need of placement and care. All organization activities will be conducted by its board members and volunteers.


We have a Board of Directors Team of 5, An Officer Team of 3 and around 70 Volunteers across 4 States. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit

Our Focus

We want to see as many adoptable HORSES out of dangerous situations and offered a chance at a real life with a wonderful home as possible. We focus on the very emaciated horse: Those who have lacked the most basic needs of food and water. We do not offer sanctuary to unsound horses or extensive long term training services for those with dangerous behavioral issues. We seek to place each rehabbed horse in an adoptive home on contract after approved application where they a high quality life.  The horses carry very reasonable adoption fees to encourage those looking for an equine partner to consider adoption.

We offer an owner safer placement program, gelding and health clinic, emergency feed assistance, new equine owner clinics, animal control and law enforcement training and even more programs to help assure that we are working to help the "Neglected Horse Issue" from the ground up.
