The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Equine Eden Rescue Center is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and welfare of abused, neglected and unwanted Appaloosas and Appaloosa cross horses.
We provide a safe environment for horses that have endured starvation, neglect and physical abuse. Each horse receives medical attention and daily loving human contact. We strive to rehabilitate and/or retrain each horse in the hopes that we can locate responsible, caring and loving homes. Appaloosas unable to be adopted will live out their lives at Equine Eden or a certified foster home. Our goal is to give each horse a second chance at life, never having to endure starvation, neglect or abuse ever again.
Equine Eden Rescue Center is in operation for the love of the Appaloosa horse. More horse rescue organizations are needed because most animal shelters do not have the facilities to house such large animals. We provide around the clock care at the Equine Eden facility and strive to eliminate abuse and neglect by promoting responsible horse ownership through education and community awareness.
