Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

1. Humane Society shelters in Southwestern PA do not have the facilities, finances, or staff trained to handle horses and other large animals. When humane officers face a horse related emergency they struggle to find places willing to accept the animals. 2. Many horse related cases of neglect and abuse are due to the lack of the owners knowledge about basic care of horses.

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goals are:

1. To rescue neglected, abused, and abandoned horses.
2. To rehabilitate rescued horses, both physically and emotionally.
3. To relocate the rehabilitated horses to new, caring homes.
4. To educate horse owners in the care and training of their horses.

Our strategy to meet our goals include maintaining a broad base of volunteers with a range of skills - from accounting to horse care experts (veterinarians and veterinary technicians), to horse trainers, to buildings and ground personel. We will maintain facilities to meet the requirements of the horses we care for. We will continue public education in horse care topics to try to prevent horse abuse and neglect. We will continue and increase our fundraising efforts.

We have a strong base of very dedicated volunteers who are skilled in horse rescue and rehabilitation. We own a 106 acre property and barn to help accomplish our mission. We have a pool of dozens of knowledgeable horse owners to confer with when problems arise. To meet our educational goals we have numerous vets and horse trainers that we are affiliated with that are very willing to provide free and low cost seminars and clinics.

Second Chance Equine Association has rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed more than 140 horses since our inception in 2006. We have provided many (6-12 per year) educational opportunities for both members and the general public. These educational events range from 1 hour presentations by experts in horse care to 2 day horse training clinics.

Our plan for the immediate future is to further develop the property that we recently purchased.

Our vision is to provide a safe haven for rescued horses and to develop education facilities and programs that foster exceptional horse care and that promote safe horsemanship.

Our goal are to:

1. Develop a public learning center to enable us to host seminars and horsmanship clinics.

2. Educate our community about horses, proper care and treatment of horses, and horsemanship.

3. Partner with higher education.

4. Work with the disabled, troubled youth, veterans and therapeutic riding groups.

5. Build a system of trails on our farm for use by members.

6. Construct an arena and obstacle course.
