A Nationwide Community Rescue helping horses
How It All Began
To give equines
a much needed "Another Chance".
We welcome home any equines (and often other animals) that are no longer
needed, wanted or useful to their owners and place them in homes where they
ARE wanted, needed and useful. Most importantly, we will only place these
animals in homes where they will be loved and protected.
4 Horses rescues horses from being auctioned for slaughter, takes custody of
horses abandoned by their owners, placing the horses in foster and adoptive
homes. We rehabilitate and train horses for use as companion animals,
riding horses and therapy horses available to the general public. Another
Chance 4 Horses offers formal programs to educate new horse owners with
respect to proper care, management and training of their adopted horses.
Children placed in juvenile facilities and/or sentenced to community service
are given an opportunity to assist in the rescue and rehabilitation efforts
of the organization, and are educated with regard to the preventing cruelty
to animals and with regard to animal husbandry. Education clinics and
demonstrations are presented to the general public on issues such as
veterinary care, shoeing, safety, training, riding, pasture management, and
neglect and cruelty to animal issues.
