About Save the Horses - A No Kill Shelter
The mission of Save the Horses is to improve the quality of life for all horses, thereby improving the lives of people through their bond with the horses. We are committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of equines suffering from abuse, as well as the successful retirement of working equines. We strive to improve public awareness and knowledge regarding the standards of care necessary to insure the health and safety of all equines.
Our 'Knee High Gang' of Dwarf horses are super cute and rare. These horses, as cute as they are, have many deformities and special needs. They need grooming, handling and lots of love. They weigh about 100 pounds and are 18 inches to 45 inches tall. We have a gang of ten. You have to see them. You can't help but smile!
We also have lots of Horses, Donkeys, Pigs, Goats and other animals that need attention! Volunteers can help with the physical needs of the horses including grooming, feeding and providing TLC, or they can assist with barn chores such as cleaning stalls. We also need help with upkeep such as fence mending, painting and organization.
Save the Horses was created to address the urgent need for rescue services and equine public education. We are an all-volunteer organization, operating solely the on donations given through the generosity of compassionate and caring people.
Thank you. The Horse Rescue,Relief & Retirement Fund is a 501C3 all donations are tax deductible.
Why should we do this - read about Jake
Once loved by his owners, they lost interest and forgot about him.
Jake could have been dead in a few days.
He was starved and dehydrated.
He is a 27 year old Arabian gelding.
This should not happen to any horse.
Please Be the Voice For The Horses!
Read some of their press here:
The facility is entirely volunteer-run, but Save the Horses is a place that also gives back to its volunteers in ways that can only be described as soulful, healing and life-changing. The relationships between the volunteers and horses makes the farm seem peacefully separated from the troubles of the outside world
