Image_202111150726

All About Equine is an established (2009) equine rescue. AAE is a volunteer-based organization and has an ongoing need for volunteers to support equine rescue operations.

Volunteers are needed to assist with basic care of horses (feeding, medicating, mucking, cleaning, grooming, hoof care, etc), and facility maintenance, as well as special projects related to care and facilities such as setting up new paddocks, fencing, install electric fencing, cross-fencing, shelter construction, building repairs, garden/yard care, hazard removal (e.g. tree branches, rocks, etc.), mechanical assistance, farriers, vets, transport, hay buying or hauling, and more.

We also need organizational/administrative help with fundraising, grant research and writing, volunteer coordinating, adoption activities, outreach, events, and plenty more.

AAE is also transitioning to a new property (61 acres) recently improved with basic infrastructure. We have the basics with fencing, cross-fencing, water/power, storage, shelter, and need to build more facilities.

If you're interested in volunteering with a horse rescue and don't see a particular skill or area listed, contact us to discuss other opportunities.

Hands on horse activities require orientation/safety training.

Mission Statement

All About Equine Animal Rescue's mission is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected, abandoned, unwanted, and/or auction/slaughter-bound animals, primarily equines (wild and domestic); to provide animals with food, shelter, care and handling, and veterinary care, as needed; to place healthy, rehabilitated animals in compatible, loving, and permanent adoptive homes; to provide long term care for unadoptable animals; and, as resources are available, to educate the community about abused, neglected, abandoned, unwanted, and/or auction/slaughter-bound animals, primarily equines.

Description

All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a volunteer-based, non-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.

AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-bound horses. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. Many of our horses are rescued from the slaughter pipeline to transported for prevent transport to slaughter in Canada or Mexico.
