Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are an equine therapy/horse rescue program in York, SC. Our main rescue focus is orphan nurse mare foals. We also take in starved and neglected horses from NC and SC and help owners network in finding horses forever homes. We also offer free or low cost gelding clinics once or twice per year as funds allow.

About Our Rescue Group:

I have rescued nurse mare foals since 2000. The nurse mare industry is based primarily in KY. The mares are bred for milk production only, the mare is then rented to an expensive TB race foal. The mare's original foal is a byproduct and is starved, left to die or taken to auction at just a couple days old. This is an industry with thousands of foals needing rescue every year. We have started an HIL(hormone induced lactation) program which brings mares into milk with hormones, thus preventing the unwanted foal and still allowing adequate milk production for the race foal. We have been promoting this for 2 yrs and this will be our main focus in the future so we are not only rescueing these babies but trying to stop them from even being born, preventing thousands of unwanted horses.

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.
