Charting impact

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

Save horse, donkeys and mules from slaughter and neglect, rehabilitate them and find them adoptive homes . We also seek to provide horse interactive experiences for humans.

1. Provide support to horse owners who can no longer keep their horses
2. Work with local animal control agencies in dealing with neglect cases
3. Rescue horses from auction/slaughter bound situations
4. Provide rehabilitation and training to rescued horses
5. Seek to place horses in adoptive forever homes.

We have our own property with numerous paddocks, a barn, Quarantine pen to provide a place to take in rescued horses. We work closely with local veterinarians to rehabilitate our horses and with local trainers to train/retrain horses as needed for adoption.

Since our inception, we have saved 156 horses and placed over 130 in adoptive homes. After 10 years of operation, we were able to purchase our own farm (previously we used the property of one of our board members). Our goals for the future include expanding programs at the rescue to education, therapeutic interactions with horses. After 10 years of operation
