Entire State of Wisconsin, We have horses from Alabama, Illinois, and Iowa.
My husband & I started rescuing horses when we went to our first auction in Iowa and stumbled across a "kill pen". I bought a 3 year old mare with a 3 week old filly by her side on her way to the slaughter house and my husband bought a welsh pony. It started there and I could never imagine what we have seen though out the years to come - the neglect, the starved, beaten,abandoned, horses without the spirit they were born with. They had lost their will to survive. When I see that spirit back in their eyes - I know I've done my job and that horse is now complete.

Our Adoption Process:
First come and spend some time at the barn and get to know the horses and see if you meet your soul mate! You must then first fill out an adoption application and pay a non-refundable fee. If all requirements are met then comes the adoption contract and the adoption fee which varies with the horse you decide to adopt - usually from $200 to $1000.
Why should you adopt?
horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses
including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
