... and thank you for your interest! We
are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of
Florida. Please take time to browse through our website and
get to know us and the horses here.
Our purpose is to help as many equine friends as possible when they are in need. We network with other rescue organizations and individuals, and we work to educate others about horse slaughter in an effort to make it illegal -- not just in the United States but also in Canada, Mexico, and other countries.
To learn more about our mission, please
follow this link to a recent article in Ocala Style magazine.
Horses that arrive at our rescue come from auctions and kill buyers; some are surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them, and some are seized by authorities. We try to help horses that are desperately in need of a safe place to go before they end up in the slaughter pipeline and are inhumanely trucked off across the borders to Canada or Mexico, where they are slaughtered for human consumption. Horses that end up at auctions often wind up in the hands of kill buyers.
Once a horse is here, then come the costs of rehabilitation, training, proper feed, and care. Expenses include initial and follow-on vet exams, farrier work, vaccines, wormers, supplements, dental care, grain, feed, and other necessities, which are costly. Some horses with special needs will live out their days here.
Please take time to look through our website to learn about us and our mission. There are stories here that will make you cry, and some will make you smile. Rescue work is a mental, physical, and financial rollercoaster ride; but the rewards are so great.
Horses ask for so little but give so much -- please help us to help them -- we can't do what we do without support from others. We need assistance from caring individuals, groups, and businesses. No amount is too small -- please give today to help the horses by visiting our Donate page. All donations are tax-deductible.
Visitors are welcome -- by appointment only. Closed on Wednesdays and Sundays. If you would like to volunteer or to make an appointment, please call
352-258-9309. We have many activities going on (farrier, vet, etc.) and we prefer to arrange visits on days when we have volunteers here. Thank you.
