Big Hearts Horse Rescue (BHHR) is a 501(c)3 NON PROFIT and is currently located in Salem Oregon. We are here to help as many needy horses as we can get out of bad situations. Along with rehabilitating & re-homing abused & neglected horses, we also try to help owners re-home their own horses. We are here to help in anyway we can, and as our resources allow.
BHHR does not promote the breeding of horses for any reason. Due to the over-breeding of horses, that has contributed to the needy horse crisis in our country, we have a strict NO BREEDING policy. Horses adopted from BHHR may never be used for breeding purposes.
Please visit us on Facebook to see who we are, what we are doing, and to take a look at the great animals that are the reason why we do what we do.
Special Events & Horse Clinics where the public can meet some of the wonderful BHHR horses, are well publicized and our Big Hearts Horse Rescue Facebook page is a good way to keep updated on what we are doing and when we are doing it.
There are many requirements and stipulations to adopting a horse from BHHR, so please take the time to review the Adoption Contract on www.bigheartshorserescue.org before submitting an adoption application.
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 - of America, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
