Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Health

Mission: New England Equine Rescues (NEER) is a constantly growing 501(c)3 organization that networks volunteers and horse people from all over the New England region. NEER is dedicated to helping horses and horse rescues in any way possible, including direct intervention for abused or slaughter-bound equines, effective horse placement, fundraising, and active support of the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. We need to find good homes, foster homes, volunteers, transport, advice, referrals, and as much support as we can to help stop the abuse, neglect, and slaughter of horses. There is no one facility, no one rescue, but a large group of people ranging from 'an extra stall' to larger 501(c)3 organizations.Please join us.

NEER is a wonderful resource for hard-to-place horses, ponies and donkeys. Mary Martin, Caroline Matterson and their crew of loyal volunteers work tirelessly caring for the animals, fundraising, and helping the cause of equine rescue locally and throughout the area. We adopted a pony from NEER, and the experience could not have been better. My daughter would rather be at NEER volunteering, which she still does frequently, than any where else on Earth. NEER is run in a very professional manner, and is an excellent resource for horse rescue.
