Mission Statement

The mission of The Horse Rescue, Relief & Retirement Fund, Inc. (HRRRFI) is to improve the quality of life for all horses and thereby improve the lives of people through their human band with horses. We are committed to the rescue and rehabilitation of horse and equine suffering from abuse and to the successful retirement of working horses and equine. We also aim to improve the public awareness and knowledge of the standards of care necessary to keep equines healthy and safe. Our Mission and Philosophy is Reflected in our Programs Equines have an ability to improve the quality of life, health and well being for people with disabilities. Through therapeutic and enjoyable equine activities, riders learn horsemanship that stimulates physical, mental and emotional growth. Our "Dreams of Courage" program uses the rescued horses to help disabled children and adults improve their lives through the movement and involvement with these horses. On the back of a horse, a disabled person becomes equal and rides beside able-bodied persons. Working with horses can also give a therapeutic effect on people struggling with psychological problems. In our ongoing attempt to establish equine rescue services. It became apparent that the level of equine knowledge and care amongst equine owners often does not measure up to the standard of care necessary to keep a horse healthy and safe. The HRRRFI offers ongoing educational classes and clinics for horse owners and enthusiasts, as well as for our volunteers. Our primary goal is to save the horses (see www.SaveTheHorses.org). We do rescues at all times, but particularly in times of despair and crisis. Our organization is made up of volunteers with a mission to stop horses from being sent to slaughter or abuse. With that in mind, we have made the commitment that any horse send here will not be sold or sent to slaughter. We will, however, have equines put down humanely, if the quality of life is suffering.

Would you recommend Horse Rescue, Relief and Retirement Fund, Inc.?

by Catherine W. (February 26, 2011)
I think it is a very excellent program for both the horses and the disabled. The horses get to enjoy a rich and healthy life and the disabled persons get to experience a whole different part of life that they probably never thought could happen. Also i love animals very much and one of my favorite types are horses and i just hate seeing an animal in distress or abused/neglected so i love the whole idea of this program
