Target demographics: horses and allow people to find themselves through interactions with our rescued horses!

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: clean stalls, feed and groom horses

Geographic areas served: the Los Angeles area

Programs:

Our ultimate goal is to create an environmentally friendly equine facility that will set a nationwide standard in animal husbandry, including but not limited to holistic nutrition, rehabilitation, equine housing, and green facility management.

Educational programs are provided free to children and the community, which emphasize the importance of proper care, ownership responsibility, and the consequences of neglect. Included are donor supported sponsorship programs which will allow inner city children and under privileged families to assist in the care and rehabilitation of the resident horses. Hopefully, the education provided will assist us in raising pubic awareness on issues concerning proper equine care and irresponsible breeding practices.

Some future employees of Saffyre Sanctuary will be students who are enrolled in various extension programs and are interested in gaining work experience in the agriculture and animal husbandry industry. The experience the students have while participating in this program will assist them in making the transition from school to work and will allow them to develop skills that will be transferable to any farm in the future.

 

We have the vision and the mission in place, but we cannot do this without financial assistance.

Mission:
Saffyre Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation program that cares for horses that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected. By allowing them to rediscover their true nature, we provide every opportunity for them to explore the possibility of enjoying a second career, or offer them a well deserved retirement due to soundness issues, age, or owner hardships.

Saffyre Sanctuary assists homeless horses in finding their forever person. Through our networks, we successfully place them in homes that give them a new lease on life. If they are unable to physically perform in their new life path, we try to find other loving places where they can live in peace and comfort or serve as companion equines.

Saffyre Sanctuary specializes in rescuing horses that would have no other chance of being saved. These horses are ones that have behavior issues, or are in need of a lengthy recovery and complex rehabilitation procedures. Our focus on quality, not quantity, enables us to give the horses in our care the very best chance of complete physical, mental and emotional recovery.

Our unique approach of equine care specializes in holistic nutrition, holistic rehabilitation, environmentally friendly equine housing, and green facility management.

Although Saffyre Sanctuary is an all-breed rescue, we have a special place in our hearts to the plight and distinctive needs of the Arabian breed. We are one of very few rescue organizations that works with Arabians, and maintains a following of Arabian enthusiasts who are familiar with their unique disposition. If you are looking to add an Arabian to your home, please consider adopting or fostering one of our loving horses.

Volunteer opportunities are provided to children and the community, which emphasize the importance of proper equine care, ownership responsibility, and the consequences of neglect. Through the interaction with our horses, participants learn empathy, compassion, cooperation, and trust. But most importantly, how to understand their nature and become one with them and the world we share.

I was searching for a place that needed my help when I found Saffyre Sanctuary on line. I had been taking lessons on horse care but I was still a novice.
