HorseSisters Mission Statement promises:
With finely trained volunteers, we promise to rescue neglected, abused and homeless horses and provide them sanctuary through rehabilitation, retraining and then adoption for some to approved homes. With equine assisted therapies, we strive to educate the public about how we can provide a special link between rescued horses and the dignified treatment of all children and adults with emotional, behavioral, social, mental, physical and/or spiritual needs. At any given time, as humans help the horses, the horses help the humans.
Saving over 400 horses since our inception in 1998, we continue to help horses and humans. We are actively seeking a new, more permanent location where we can invest time and donations long term. Several new programs have been designed and will began 2013 with veterans and prisoners programs our highlight.
