NYSHHAP is designed to promote and to teach a pro-active approach to equine health, care, and welfare and to recognize exceptionally managed equine farms and through the education provided, ensures healthier horses and equine environments. Equine Rescue was the first Equine Rescue Operation to be Certified by NYSHHAP.
In 1996, a path was taken and lives have been changed forever...
Our plan was to create a shelter for equines... a rescue that would provide care, rehabilitation and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses.
Pretty simple, we thought -- help a few horses out, we thought. We were not prepared for the floodgates that opened. The past sixteen years have been an eye opener for everyone involved with Equine Rescue, Inc. We have taken in horses with physical scars so vicious that we can only guess what happened; others with emotional scars that won't allow them to trust again.
But we have also helped many, many horses and ponies find homes with people who love them and have given them another chance at being useful riding horses or companions.
Please take a few minutes to browse our website and learn about our horse rescue work and to meet the horses that are waiting for a new chance in life.
We make sure that all animals are fully recovered before they are available for adoption. Each one receives a very thorough Veterinary work up, they are tempermant tested with others and people and their ability to be ridden and at what level is tested - so that we know all we can about them and are able to pass that along to the adopter. There are no 'surprises'.
This is a long process. It is an expensive process. But, we have found that it is a necessary process to insure their futures. Keeping them out of harm's way - for the rest of their lives - is very important to us.
