Horse Sanctuaries provide safe and caring homes for horses that have been abused, abandoned, about to be destroyed, or owners can no longer care for them. These organizations provide a natural and stimulating environment for Mustangs to relearn their freedom and independence, while others care for and prepare domestic horses and some Mustangs for adoption to a new loving and caring home.
Rather than allow horses to go to slaughter or be destroyed, these organizations provide rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and retirement for horses from many different situations of abuse and neglect. If a horse cannot be rehabilitated for adoption due to illness, old age, injury or social behavior, they are retired to live out the rest of their days in a happy and healthy environment.
Most sanctuaries are non-profit and are tax-exempt, and are solely supported by contributions from individuals. We encourage you to learn more about these organizations by looking at our Horse Sanctuary Directory.
