For The Love Of A Horse is a tax exempt, registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, comprised entirely of volunteers. We are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of equines, specifically those with critical-care needs that would otherwise be euthanized.
The AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners) estimates that 2,700 more rescue facilities are needed just to care for the thousands of horses made surplus across the United States since the closing of the horse slaughter plants in 2008. The needed number of facilities will grow exponentially in the years to come.
The sad truth is, it is unforeseeable that there will be sufficient money, space, or facilities to care for all of the unwanted horses. Nor will there be sufficient resources to provide specific care to those animals with severe illnesses or injuries that, with treatment, could still lead happy, healthy lives. Our organization is committed to providing a small step in the journey to providing second chances for these wonderful animals and a new beginning.
