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:

To rescue, rehabilitate and give sanctuary to equines in need.

Our program gives horses an opportunity for a second career or a well deserved retirement, due to soundness issues, age or owner hardships.

Our unique approach of equine care specializes in holistic nutrition, holistic rehabilitation, environmentally friendly 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. Through the interaction with our horses, participants learn compassion, forgiveness and trust.
