Each year, over 100,000 horses are trucked over our borders to be slaughtered. Slaughter is a brutal and terrifying end for horses. Horses are shipped in overcrowded trucks, for over 24 hours at a time -- without food, water, or rest. They are often seriously injured or die in transit.
The unwanted horse. The abused horse. The neglected horse. The horse whose loving owner had died and didn’t have an after plan. The horse whose owner suffered financial hardship. These are the horses we help.
The mission of Mustangs To The Rescue, an all-breed, all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit equine rescue, is to positively impact the community we serve by supporting horses, their owners and potential owners, with assistance, resources and educational opportunities, thus improving the lives of horses and humans in our community.
- To help horses in need by providing positive options for both horses and their owners
- To help our local community by providing horse owners and potential horse owners with assistance, educational opportunities and resources to ensure safe and secure homes for our equine partners
- To assist local, state and federal agencies in managing horses and horse populations; wild or otherwise
- To elevate the public’s view of wild horses by placing them in roles of servicesuch as Search and Rescue, Packing Services and Mounted Patrols
