Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide quality, life-long care for horses/ponies/small farm animals who are unwanted/neglected and/or have special needs and to develop and offer outreach programs utilizing our resident equines that provide enriching and life changing opportunities for people who might not otherwise have the chance to experience horses in a supportive, educational environment for humans and animals alike.


We are a small, volunteer based organization that currently provides a permanent home for 16 equines, 2 goats, 2 pot bellied pigs, 2 sheep and 1 feisty feline. Our sanctuary program is supported by our educational and outreach opportunities, some of which are fee based. We strive to offer interactive opportunities for the members of our community with programs offering hands on animal care, urban agriculture and more! Our residents work with children and adults of all ages and a range of abilities. We strive to provide an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome and involved to better the lives of our residents and our community.
