Mission Statement

Central Virginia Horse Rescue, Inc (CVHR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the compassionate care of equines. Our mission is to save, protect, and rehabilitate equines in need. We rescue unwanted, abused, neglected, or abandoned equines; provide them with care and rehabilitation; and finally find them a compatible, loving home. We believe that education is the long-term solution to improving the lives of equines.



  • To rescue unwanted horses from auctions and feedlots.
  • To educate horse-owners and the public about proper equine care, and the problems of neglect, abuse, and slaughter.
  • To rescue equines from neglectful and abusive situations by educating owners, helping to place at-risk equines and ultimately working within the bounds of the law to remove equines from their owner’s care when deemed necessary.
  • To provide gelding for unwanted stallions until they can be placed in an adoptive home.
  • To rehabilitate sick, injured and underweight equines and restore them to a state of health
  • To end the suffering of those equines which cannot be rehabilitated by means of humane euthanasia.
  • To find all equines that come under the care of CVHR a compatible, loving home.
  • To maintain a 'haybank’ to provide feed for horses in emergency situations.
