About Firefly Acres Horse Farm

Location:

W155 PEARL ST, ONEIDA, WI 54155, US

Mission Statement

Firefly Acres Horse Farm is a completely volunteer-run horse rescue with two missions: to help horses and to help people. We bring together Natural Horsemanship and Equine Assisted Therapy to rehabilitate abused, neglected, or unwanted horses while building hope, patience, and healing in the participants who work with them.

Description

In 2009, Lisa Pelky met 7 unwanted horses at the barn where she was boarding her horse. They were wards of the state of Wisconsin, some unnamed and feral, and all abused and neglected. These traumas made the horses fearful and untouchable, inspiring Lisa to create a safe home for them where they could heal and learn to trust.

It was out of that inspiration, Lisa’s hard work, and her interest in Equine Assisted Therapy that Firefly Acres was born. Lisa purchased the horses and set to work building a space for them. From there, she connected with the community to establish a volunteer base and a board, creating the non-profit organization we know today.

Firefly Acres is now home to 8 horses who’ve experienced kindness and healing from humans, some for the first time. The horses have reciprocated that care and trust, helping people find healing, learn patience, and develop skills to help improve their lives.
