and arms that will hold you at your weakest....

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.


Our mission is to provide these horses with a second chance at life and companionship. We also educate the public on respect for all animal life and the importance of compassion and responsibility when dealing with all animals.


For The Love Of A Horse is not a sanctuary or boarding organization for all horses. Instead, we provide "rescue" and "rehabilitation" services specifically to critically ill or injured horses while seeking to find proper qualified homes for them following their rehabilitation.

 

YOUR IMPACT...

 

The sick equines who need our help need generous supporters like you!

 

As a nonprofit organization, it takes the generous spirit of  many  people to ensure that these equines receive the care they need, care that is compassionate, comprehensive and of the highest quaility possible.  As you can imagine, it's a daunting task, a huge undertaking to do what we do...especially in this tough economic climate, when charitable giving (especially for organizations helping animals) is at an all time low.

 

To see how your generosity makes an impact in the lives of equines who face life-threatening medical conditions, we invite you to:

 

  • Meet a few of the animals we have treated/rescued
  • Watch videos/see pictures highlighting our care and treatment of our "patients"

 

 

OTHER WAYS WE SHARE YOUR IMPACT...

 

  • Continuously evolving and implementing our "Community Outreach Program"
  • The ability to continue to accept new equine medical cases
  • Continue to provide a safe haven for the equines in our care/organiztion
  • Ability to provide support to other rescue organizations in need

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.
