13 Hands Equine Rescue is a 501c3 not for profit company that rescues horses from terrible situations (kill pens, auction houses, etc.). We are Guidestar Gold Rated.
After a 30 day isolation period, the horses arrive at our farm scared, anxious, underweight and abused. It takes a lot of TLC, veterinary care, etc. to bring them back to health. After they are rescued and assessed we continue rehabilitation and re-training them in order to help them find their perfect “forever home”. We have a strenuous adoption process to find the perfect match. This includes a home assessment, interview, reference check, etc. A select few horses will stay at the farm and become part of our equine therapy program (EAGALA model). For those that are not adoptable and cannot be used in therapy, we retire them to live out the rest of their life in peace and tranquility at a huge farm where they are well cared for.
