Love This Horse - Equine Rescue

Mission

"Love This Horse, Equine Rescue Inc." is a horse rescue specializing in taking in forgotten, neglected and abused Arabian horses from local animal shelters, distressed owners, from low-end local horse auctions, and law enforcement seizures. We bring them into a safe and nurturing environment, where they are brought back to health. When the horses are strong enough, they are evaluated, and if possible, restarted for a new life as a riding horse. We believe that every horse deserves a job. For some of our horses, this means becoming a great trail or lesson horses. Others are destined to become therapy horses, helping kids and adults healing from their own deep wounds. We work hard to take care of these horses, all the while knowing that the horses are secretly taking care of us.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

On average 50,000 to 100,000 unwanted horses end up exported to slaughter to Mexico or Canada each year. Our horse rescue works diligently to prevent Arabian horses from entering this pipeline by taking in horses to rehabilitate and to retrain. Once retrained, we find permanent adoptive homes. However, we also offer sanctuary homes for horses that are either too old or otherwise health impaired and cannot find homes.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our aim is to be a consistent force in saving Arabian horses from abuse and neglect, and from going to slaughter in Mexico and/or Canada.

We work to accomplish this by making a difference in the lives of forgotten, abandoned and at risk equines through direct intervention, education, and community outreach.

Love this Horse, Equine Rescue stresses the importance of owner responsibility. We operate at the highest level of integrity, honestly, professionalism and compassion.

Once the horses are ready for adoption, Love this Horse offers them for adoption to pre-screened approved and qualified homes.

Strategies to continue in our mission are transparency, showing the public the ongoing progress of the horses in our rescue, primarily through out Facebook Page and by inviting volunteers to come work at our rescue.

Commitment by the board members and current volunteers and hard work in the field of horse rescue.

We have not found enough monthly sponsorships.
