Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Aged farming draft horses have spent years in harnesses working. Many end up at high risk auctions and ultimately slaughter. They deserve a soft landing and safe retirement.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue & Rehabilitation of Draft Horses

Draft Gratitude was established in 2014 to give unwanted senior working horses a second chance and a place to call home. Our primary focus is the rescue and rehabilitation of senior farming horses. Once rehabilitated, the horses are available for adoption to approved homes. Rescued horses that are not adoptable for various reasons will live out their days safely with us in sanctuary.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to provide quality care that is timely, responsible, and reasonable, with a focus on quality of life for unwanted draft horses.

Maintaining relationships where these horses are coming from without judgement.

Maintaining our established relationship with our veterinarian.

Interacting visually and physically with every horse in our care twice per day to catch any needs or differences in behavior as early as possible.

Having funds available for acute veterinary needs so that appropriate care can be delivered without concern of affording it.

Maintain appropriate veterinary records in combination with regular health checks of our herd including timely vaccines, hoof care, and dental work.

We have developed a great team of care providers. Being proactive with regular health checks, appropriate hoof care, and appropriate dental care combined with a proven feeding program goes a long ways toward maintaining healthy draft horses.

Since 2014, (as of October 2020) we have saved 52 draft horses from slaughter.
We will keep saving the lives of unwanted draft horses within our means.
We have earned our Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries Verification.
