Northern Lights Horse Rescue (NLHR)

A collaborative approach to rescuing horses in crisis

NLHR network members receive support in the form of hay, feed, veterinarian, and/or professional training services for rehabilitation and retraining, which enables horses to recover and move into safe, productive lives. Support is provided directly for these needs, offloading the farms who volunteer their time and space from the added burden of out-of-pocket expenses. 

What is a licensed rescue?

We use licensing and Homes for Horses Coalition Standards for animal rescue as a requirement for collaborative farms that we support financially. Because we serve the entire New England area, this helps us know that a farm applying for financial support from us has met certain basic safety criteria.
