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.

There are not enough words to share what a wonderful rescue this is and how impressed we are with the dedication, hardwork, resourcefulness and compassion that Terry continues to demonstrate. We have fostered 3 horses through ARMS and her support and knowledge in this exhausting, never-ending and sometimes heartbreaking industry has been inspiring and has saved many lives. Our experience has been excellent and we hope to continue a long term relationship. We currently are fostering the stunning yearling filly Yasmine. ❤

I have been hauling horses to their new owners for many years for ARM. While we do not haul rescue horses , we do haul the amazing horses that ARM has put their money, blood , sweat and in some cases tears into. We also use the beautiful Kentucky farm to overnight and as a stopping point to rest and meet. If y'all want to see how a real rescue works, get a hold of Terri for a tour of the place. Its well kept, clean and the horses that they have worked end up being welcome additions to their new owners. In proud to call Terrri my friend.

I met the people of ARM about a yr and a half ago.. I have since fostered, and adopted a horse through them. There is nothing these animals need that they dont get. (from supplements to surgery). If the money is not there, it appears when needed whether through a quick fundraiser or out of the pockets of those that run the rescue. When they say they are on the road or at a site..They are! These people are not sitting behind a desk pushing orders. They are knee deep in crap cleaning stalls and cleaning wounds, cutting up bad fencing, repairing and assisting an overwhelmed owner while placing animals and on the other end of the lead line while animals are freaking out from thier situations. They do it all!! And they are the ones who see the situation from start to finish. This is an excellent group of people and a pretty small group of people that get an awful lot done with the resources they have. I applaud thier energy and efforts. A well deserving organization when it comes to donations.

I am a farm owner with 30 years experience in taking care of horses. I have been to Terry's farm and have seen fat, healthy horses. Terry gives her all, unconditionally, to helping horses sometimes neglecting her own needs. I am always amazed on how ARM gets the job done on large herds that needs help. And it doesn't matter if it's one horse or 50, she is there. She has helped me tremendously in caring for my senior horses, her wealth of knowledge is tremendous. I know if I have a problem with a horse I can depend on her to take the time to help me. She is one in a million. JnL Pocono Stables

Terry does a thankless job, often fighting against regulations that allow animals be be in horrible situations. She has been responsible for the improved life of countless horses, Arabians and others.

There is NO criticism in the four star review i left, it is simply that in this time of economic depression and great need, Terry and ARM are sometimes spread too thin! No one person can do all the good that she does, so she had to rely on others, and I believe at times she has trusted too much.

Terri has been a member of the horse & Arabian community in our area for as long as I can remember! I remember as a small child watching her show her horses in competitions and now she is giving the greatest gift possible back to these majestic, noble animals by continually rescuing, rehabbing & re-homing them. When the horses previous "owners" toss them aside like trash, Terri is always there to pick them up, get them back on their feet & loved again & sees to it that they find new loving forever homes where they will never have to wonder when and if they will see food or light again!!!! I was amazed at how easily she agreed to take in a little Arabian gelding that I found at a kill pen - she networked & fundraised for his bail, and I was able to contribute some bail money & picked him up & delivered him to Terri safe & sound! He was free from that darkness & stench of the kill pen that made me cry myself to sleep that night.....And now....he is a beautiful young man that is going to make someone an incredible little horse when they find him a new home! The Arabian Horse Rescue Mission is a dedicated rescue that keeps the horses in their first sight, and all the hard work in their second sight!!! Way to go everyone, and thank you for being a safe landing pad for our beloved equines! Michelle
