Our mission is short and simple. Rescue, Rehab, and Rehome. Some of our rescue animals are old and/or untrainable (trauma, injuries, etc.), and can not be permanently rehomed. These animals will stay with us for their lifetime.
One of our goals is to expand our operation. We don’t really know what our capacity is at this point on 5 acres. To us, it feels we’ve met our limit and would love more room for more rescues. We are really hoping to move to a property with a large barn to house additional rescue horses, an indoor training area, a living quarter (helper/nurse), wash station for animals, bathroom, with its own well and septic, outdoor paddocks with shelters, and grazing areas. We strive to provide the best care for our animals and hope to continue doing so.
