We network among New England farms and related resources
to complement large regional rescues
to help find homes for surrendered, abused, and neglected horses.
We promote the standards of care defined
by the Homes for Horses Coalition of the AWI, HSUS and ASPCA
for advancing equine protection.

We believe that horses deserve better. Our mission:
We are a virtual network designed to stretch donor dollars farther by supporting only rescued-horse care expenses at an existing barn with an available stall. Since many farms already have a horse barn, we supply funds for feed, vet, and farrier costs to adopters who comply with HFHC standards of care. This support makes it more possible for these barn owners 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 from our business model — which is typically half of the annual costs of a pleasure horse — we can support resources for two. And this gives the rescue barn time in which to recover horses’ health, uncover their strengths, and find them a “forever” home where they can live out their lives in safety.
You Give. They Live.Give, get involved, volunteer or educate others! With your help we can make the lives of unwanted horses better.
