Sound Equine Options is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization that provides veterinary-directed programs to measurably reduce the number of suffering and starving horses in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington

About Our Rescue Group:

Sound Equine Options (SEO) was founded in 2009 by an equine veterinarian seeking to address the plight of horses whose owners could not afford to provide them with basic care.

In Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington, as in the rest of the country, the number of unwanted horses and horses not receiving basic care exceeds the resources available to accommodate them. Though there are currently no accurate figures on how many of these horses exist, our research and work with regional animal control officers tells us these numbers are on the rise.

SEO utilizes a vast network of participants to strengthen the safety net for local horses; to provide them with a life of dignity, love, trust, and care. Our volunteers are passionate about the veterinary-based programs and the results they produce. Based on innovative practices, these programs address the need for temporary assistance and the unwanted horse issue on a national level while radically changing the lives of local 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.
