What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Sand Creek Rescue is an all breed horse rescue specializing in taking in the hardest to place horses; Mares in foal, Mares with foals, and Stallions. Sand Creek Rescue will take in Off Track Thoroughbreds from Breeding farms and Race Tracks; horses from auctions and the local community. Through our specialized nutrition program we are able to rehabilitate emaciated horses, as well as use a more natural approach with weaning the foals, keeping the mare at a good weight, and leaving them together as they naturally would in the wild until the foal is up to a year old. In rescuing these hard to place horses, we will intervene to prevent them from being sent to Mexico and Canada for slaughter, and facilitate their placement into wonderful family homes. While our main focus is giving Hope to horses, we are also just animal lovers. When we find animals and owners in need, we can't help but to try to step in and help. We have taken in dogs, Iguanas, peafowl, and even a tarantula.

Charting impact

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

We are a safe haven for animals that are so often the hardest to save. We take in mostly the hardest to place, such as Stallions which need to be housed separate from other horses; mares and foals, which are a two for 1, with additional nutritional requirements, veterinary needs and space requirements. We also like to take in horses that have had a life of stress and work on the track and let them decompress and turn back into natural horses. While horses are our main focus, we have a need in our direct community and are helping to fulfill those needs by helping dogs in the area through education and dog food distribution.

While we recognize there is a great need to help many horses, we want to be able to provide adequate space for each and everyone. We do not take in more than we can successfully handle. We believe their nutritional needs, space requirements, and health are more important than taking in a large quantity of animals. We recognize most will not be adopted out and will spend their life at the rescue, therefore we are very strict on what and how many animals we take in and how many are at the rescue. We strive for quality not quantity, no matter how hard it is to make those decisions and reject some horses from coming into our rescue.

Our President has 20 + years experience with horses. She has taken classes on horsemanship and prides herself on her keen eye for any changes in the horses on the farm. We work closely with our vet and farrier to have specific guidelines on the care of our horses when they come in or if they experience any illnesses while in our care. The rescue is located on the property of the President, so they have 24 hour on site supervision.

We have taken in a variety of horses and have a total of 17 now at the rescue. We have taken in 4 clots/ stallions, 5 pregnant/ with foal mares. We have 17 calm, healthy horses, who all love being around people, and receive the best care and food available. We will continue to take in horses on a limited basis as dire cases come in. We are also working on increasing our dog food distribution for our local community.
