Avon Horse Rescue

The Mission of US Horse Welfare and Rescue is to promote the safety and welfare of America’s equines locally & nationally through rescue, advocacy, and education, while healing humans through Horse-2-Human connections & supportive programs with our sanctuary horses.

Sponsoring the Horses at US Horse Welfare and Rescue

As an organization, we rescue horses from slaughter, surrender, and abuse.  We go to great lengths to save horses that are at high risk of being shipped to a cruel and inhumane ending if we fail to help them find a safe landing.

It costs several thousand dollars a month to care for the horses in our stables.  Between feeding, grooming, and transportation of the rescues, we rely on community and corporate donations to make ends meet.  Our riding lessons, summer camps, and events help provide for our horses, however, our aging herd needs you to help keep them safe and healthy.

Our long term goal is to add more stalls, which would enable us to rescue and rehab more horses. We would also like to build a community room that would enable us to expand upon our therapeutic equine programs for children and adults alike. “Rescued horses rescuing humans” is a guiding belief of this organization and every dollar you can give goes directly to that. Our organization is 100% volunteer-run, so 100% of your donation goes directly to helping our rescued herd and rescuing more.

Sponsoring our horses helps the horses and allows us to provide financial assistance to those in the community who can benefit from our programs.
