Mission Statement

OUR MISSION

There are so many abused, starved and neglected horses waiting for someone to help them, so many that will die in pain, starved or with wounds left untreated.  A horse that had someone to love them at some point in their life, someone who is gone, but not forgotten by that horse. There are so many horse's that have never been loved, never felt secure and safe , that have never known a bond or trust.

We have faith that the good will outweigh the bad, that people who love their own horses will help the horses that no one cares about. We have faith that no matter what, we will find a way, we will make a difference in the lives of horses that have been discarded , living in pain without the basics of care, one horse at a time.

There is a greater power of good that surrounds us all, it is always present and waiting to be called on for so that we will always have the courage to help when no one else cares and that we will have the strength of heart to give what little we do have to make the life of someone or something worth living.

We have faith that no matter how dim a light may be, if there is light it can shine brightly again. We believe in miracles, the proof is in this day, we are here and have been given a conscious to guide us to more miracles. When all hope is lost, we will have the faith to look for it, to find it again  and to share it with everyone. We will rely on our faith to find hope when all is lost, and to make miracles happen with all the power of goodness.

Our Mission is to help the horse others have forgotten, to teach the horse how to trust and to earn their love. We will find new forever homes for the horse that had no chance , and end the suffering of horse that without intervention will die a slow and painful death.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Changing the lives of abused animals changes our lives as well. It makes man kind better, it teaches the youth compassion and heals the hearts of those who help heal the horses. In reality, it is a gift that the abused , starved or slaughter bound horse gives to us, to rescue from the heart is to receive this gift from the animals that we helped save.

Programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Horse slaughter prevention and education

We attend auctions where horses are sold to slaughter, purchase them and then find them homes under our adoption contract. The general public believes only old, sick or lame horses are being sent to slaughter so we teach them about what is really happening.
