We’re a network of small barns already built for horses
and licensed for animal rescue
who can handle the overflow
that large regional rescues can’t accommodate.

We believe that horses deserve better. Our mission:
At the same time a bricks-and-mortar and virtual network, our organizational model stretches donor dollars farther by supporting only rescued-horse care expenses at an existing barn with an available stall — not costly expenses for facility or property management. Where farms already have a horse barn, and are licensed to rescue horses, we can supply funds for feed, vet, and farrier costs, which make it more possible for these small barns to rescue horses in crisis, versus being forced to choose between caring for their family or caring for a needy horse. This way, both the equine and human families win.
By eliminating the burden of shelter costs — which is typically half of the annual costs of a pleasure horse — we can care for two. And this gives the rescue barn time in which to recover their health, uncover their strengths, and find them a home where they can continue to thrive.
You Give. They Live.
Give, get involved, volunteer or educate others! With your help we can make the lives of unwanted horses better.
