Mission Statement

To rescue abandoned, abused, neglected and slaughter-bound horses and to provide them with a second chance at healthy and productive lives.


Founded in 2000, California Coastal Horse Rescue (CCHR) cares for those horses that no one else will care for...

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization; the Mission of CCHR is to rescue abandoned, abused, neglected and slaughter-bound horses and to provide them with a second chance for healthy and productive lives.

CCHR horses have been rescued from a wide range of serious situations including: abandonment, neglect and potential slaughter. CCHR also rescues horses whose owners can no longer afford to care for them.

CCHR provides shelter, food, veterinary care, farrier services, rehabilitation and adoption services for the horses in its care. It also offers long-term sanctuary to disabled and elderly horses.

With a combination of specialized care and loving support, all horses rescued by CCHR are given the opportunity to heal, thrive and to lead happy and peaceful lives.

Since its inception, CCHR has given sanctuary to over 150 horses and ponies at its facility and has also placed over 600 equines in new homes through its adoption services.

CCHR relies on the generous support of donors, volunteers, sponsors and grants.

CCHR will always be an advocate for horses in need and will always strive to offer Rescue,Rehabilitation, and Refuge to these beautiful and treasured animals.

It's hard work but fun and out in the country with fresh air and a great team to work with. Folks are there for the horses. I am a regular volunteer and each time I go, I can muck corrals, groom or exercise horses or/and do physical labor such as digging trenches, putting up fences or triming trees... And then we all go out for lunch; it's like a family.
