Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: The Arabian Rescue Mission is dedicated to rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of arabian horses in need. Our primary goal is to facilitate their gentle release, prior to the necessity of seizure. Our secondary goal is the education of those handling rescue and rehabilitation, first responders at time of seizure and owners, where surrender may be iminent. We are charged with the task of discreetly negotiating the release of animals in decline, initiating programs to help owners facing life challenges with their commitment and providing the tools necessary for a safe and legal seizure, where necessary.

Results: Just in 2012, so far we have helped 400 horses out of bad situations or just into new homes. We have completed 75% of the repairs necessary due to the damage by Hurricane Irene. We have purchased a large run-in shed for our main field. We have purchased a backhoe for excavation and farm work. We have also leased a facility in KY to house and help twice as many horses!

Target demographics: Horses in need, in situations where neglect and abuse are present or imminent due to circumstances beyond an owner's control, in threat of shipping to slaughter or otherwise in harm's way.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Hundreds

Geographic areas served: Nationwide

Programs: Rescue, Rehabilitation & Re-Homing and we are successful in all 3 areas.

I don't think I have enough space to tell you all the wonderful things about Terry and ARM. I volunteer but not at the farm. I help with fundraising. I was at another rescue last year for a short period of time. I had to leave there because of the business practices of the owner. It is so different with Terry. Not only is she interested in saving horses, she also is interested in teaching the volunteers about horses and rescues. She is open with all of her tax returns,etc. You can go on the website and see her records for the last few years. So different from the last rescue I was at. Terry is totally committed to rescuing as many horses as she can and finding good homes for them. Even though I don't work at the farm, I can attest to the great care the horses get. The staff and volunteers are in this for their love of horses. I would recommend ARM in a heartbeat to anyone interested in volunteering or adopting a horse. Terry is extremely knowledgeable and is more than willing to share that knowledge.

Terry and Arabian rescue are so much more then just a rescue. They are family. Their work for the Horses in nothing short of miraculous. Every horse gets special love and attention. Something they probably never had. Terry has gone beyond for me. She has become a very special person in my life. She allowed me, someone who knows very little about horses, to adopt one special appaloosa. She worked with me and taught me everything I needed to know. My horse and I now share a life long bond filled with love and respect. I believe in anything can happen and it has been proven to me through the work that Terry and Arabian rescue Mission do everyday. God Bless her, her volunteers and all the people involved in this truly miraculous organization.

This rescue is truly wonderful. They save many horses year round from slaughterhouses or from terrible situations.
They treat the horses well, get them immediately assessed, provide medical attention and diet in order to re-home healthy happy horses. The staff takes good care of the horses and really loves each one and is very concerned for their well being,

I have volunteered at other rescues in the past. ARM is by far the best and the horses are amazing.

A rescue in the true sense of the word. Terry and the whole ARM crew are very knowledgable with the rescue horses needs. So grateful for any help received and never ever complains when things get tough! I recently adopted a wonderful Paint (it's not just Arabians) Philly, and plan on adopting more when the time is right. ARM is one of a kind!
