Equine Rescue

Since our inception in 1996, the rescue of equines from slaughter, abuse and neglect has been one of the primary missions of Equine Advocates. Over the years we have helped literally thousands of horses in distress. We have often handled rescue operations that involved saving multiple equines at once.

Equine Advocates continues with multi-horse rescue operations, in addition to the individual rescues that are ongoing. Numerous Thoroughbreds have been saved either directly from the tracks or taken as the result of being seized by law enforcement during cruelty investigations. Equine Advocates, rescued three badly neglected and emaciated Thoroughbreds from a farm in Greene County, NY. That incident has become part of an investigation into alleged long-time cruelty at that location. An article on Equine Advocates part in the rescue was published in the New York Times..

Many of our rescued horses over the years have been adopted. However, many horses that were adopted have come back to us for a variety of reasons. With every adoption, equines must be returned to us if the home can no longer keep them for any reason. Many of the equines who live at Safe Home are animals who were adopted and have since come back to us. Please consider becoming a full or partial sponsor of one or more of our rescued equines.

Every equine deserves a quality life and peaceful, dignified end. We hope that through our Sanctuary and Education programs, we can help to instill a sense of responsibility in those who have horses in their care. That is one of the main missions of this organization. We hope you will support our work and visit us when you have the chance.
