National organization with facilities currently in Western Washington, Oregon and Colorado.
People Helping Horses is a locally-based, nationally recognized 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization dedicated to improving human-horse relationships through Education, Rehabilitation, and Support for both Horse-Owners and Professionals. We are committed to the welfare of each individual horse that comes into our care. It is our hope that by this example, more people will become educated about proper horse care and equine issues with which we are challenged on a daily basis.
Fees vary depending on individual horse. An adoption and/or foster contract must be signed by individuals interested in adopting; in addition, a site visit will be conducted by PHH staff before adopting out horse to new owner.
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.
