Mission

Safe Haven Equine Rescue and Retirement Home Inc. is a volunteer based, non-profit organization accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and dedicated to the welfare of horses. Our goal is to rescue abused, neglected, or distressed horses. We work to bring these rescued horses back to optimal health and to find them loving homes. In some cases, due to age or disability, a horse will not be able to be adopted. For these horses Safe Haven Equine Rescue and Retirement Home Inc. will provide a home where they can peacefully live out the rest of their life with love and dignity.

Paying It Forward

There are those times that our rescue skills are not needed but that doesn't mean we can't help. Depending on available resources and the needs of a community Safe Haven does its very best to pay forward all the wonderful support we receive from so many people by helping others. We have taken livestock feed to Houston Texas during the floods of 2016, supplies to Moore Oklahoma after the tornadoes in 2013, feed and hay to the Panhandle of Texas after the fires in 2017, helped clean up debris after tornadoes hit Texas and Oklahoma in 2017, and so much more
