Saving neglected and slaughter-bound horses in Western Washington Tax ID 20-3454564


Cowgirl Spirit Equine Rescue has rescued over 40 slaughter-bound or neglected horses since its inception in 2005. Our group rescues horses from livestock auctions and feed lots, then we rehabilitate them, retrain them, then we adopt them out to their forever homes.

To give you a glimpse of our work, please look at the last two photos posted, Casanova. The first photo of the skinny grey horse shows Casanova after we purchased him from the Enumclaw livestock auction, where we were bidding against the meat men for his life. The second photo shows Casanova now -- a true gem who is the kindest, safest horse in our herd.

Our organization is completely volunteer-based and is funded entirely by donations. Any gift, no matter how small helps defray our ongoing costs such as rent, vet care, farrier care, hay, grain, and essentials such as training equipment and supplies to maintain our headquarters.
