Equus Rescue and Therapy is a 501(c)(3) Tax Deductible Non-Profit organization.
We rescue horses who are retired from the race track, horses in horrific conditions and kill pens on their way to slaughter. We give them a second chance at life, another chance at a career, new homes or a dignified retirement.
Equus Rescue also gives back to the community through programs serving at risk youth through our Equine Angels program and we are developing a program to honor our returning war veterans.
We believe a noble life deserves a second chance.
Our organization continues to grow and thrive due to the generous donations from our supporters and the countless hours worked by our dedicated volunteers.
Your donation supports Equus Rescue by providing medical care, hay, grain, bedding and helps keep our lights on.
