Support for Equines and the Community that Loves them

Rescue

 

We wish we could save them all. Because our resources must be conserved for the horses in the rescue and sanctuary herds, we focus our intake on owner surrendered equines. As well as the significant need for this assistance, one of our goals is to intercept equines before they go to auction and risk going to slaughter. We believe that our funds are best used to rehabilitate and train equines at risk. We do not buy animals. We must limit our intake based on space, available funds and volunteer assistance.

United Friends Volunteers

This program was established to include disabled adults in our volunteer program. We know that time outdoors with equines is good for all of us. The United Friends Volunteers help with clean-up, grooming our most gentle animals and enjoy sharing the company of our farm pets- dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. We value their company and their contribution. If you are involved with a group home or individual who would like to participate, please contact us at info@equineaid.org.

Lifetime Sanctuary

 

Equines who come into our rescue program and are found not to be adoptable become members of our sanctuary herd. Some of them are adoptable as companions which is indicated by the * on their threads. Placement of these animals involves the same screening process that we apply to the adoptable herd. They are all current on health care and we are happy to share all we know about them with potential homes. If they are not adopted we remain committed to caring for them for life.

A Hand Up

Currently out of funding. The hand-up¬†program was stablished to assist committed owners with keeping their animals when they experience temporary difficulty covering their animal’s expenses. Our goal is to protect equines from entering the slaughter pipeline via advertisements on sites such as Craigslist and horse auctions. In the past, we have assisted owners who are out of work and those who have medical issues. A completed application and a visit with your equines are required. We have helped with hay, board, hoof trims, shoeing and dental care and are also open to covering humane euthanasia and gelding. All of these services are dependent on the funds in this account.
