HELPING HORSES, HELPING PEOPLE Sunshine Horses, Inc. is a non-profit, independent adoption agency and rescue facility for horses located in Syracuse, NY. Founded in 2003, Sunshine has found loving homes for more than 200 horses. We specialize in retraining and rehoming retired Standardbred racehorses. However, Sunshine works with all horse breeds and prepares them for their forever homes. Sunshine Horses, Inc. is the largest Standardbred adoption group and rescue in New York State.
Just as important to our mission of helping horses is our mission of helping people. Sunshine works with many different community organizations and agencies within the Syracuse area. Through youth and adult volunteer programs, we draw upon the strengths each participant brings to Sunshine and seek to provide personal growth and enrichment. Many program participants face unique challenges of their own, and can empathize and bond with our horses in a special way as they help prepare the horse for adoption.
