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.


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:


Geographic areas served:



Rescue, Rehabilitation & Re-Homing and we are successful in all 3 areas.

My fiance Russ and I visited Terry's farm about a year ago, and from the time we stepped out of the truck and on to the property, we could feel that this place was something special. The horses were happy, healthy, and out in the sunlight enjoying their "new" life. Terry took us on a tour and introduced us to each and every horse and their story. The gleam in her eye and the love she showed for each horse was evident. Each one was special in her eyes, individuals with a heart and soul. She explained about her feeding and training program, her volunteers and her trainer and partner CJ. What we thought would be an hour visit turned into four hours. We were welcomed with open arms by Terry and CJ, and we were both so fascinated on how much it took to run the rescue, the fight they sometimes has to rescue these magnificient animals, the happiness of seeing a horse go from starvation to healthy and be adopted, to the saddness of not being able to save one that was too far gone because of somebody's stupidity, neglect, etc. Although I have not been able to visit Terry for a while due to caring for my dad, I do keep in touch with her quite often. I describe Terry as a truly a loving soul who has been sent from God to save these precious animals. She fights, and fights hard to save as many horses as she can. I for one appreciate, each and every day, what Terry, CJ and the volunteers do. They are all beautiful angels.

Seeing the results first hand in what Terry and CJ do for this rescue, every day. And the folks that volunteer ... well, they are just as much angels to this effort as Terry and CJ are. Their help is truly appreciated.

After visiting and touring the property, I have seen how this rescue has helped, loved and cared for all the animals there. These people are wonderful, knowledgable and care. It was a great experience. Every horse was friendly, healthy and on their way to a new life full of love and happiness. Please continue to do what you are doing. Hope our donation helps.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The warmth, caring and welcome every horse and visitor is given. Every horse is friendly and healthy and the staff knows each horse, history and characteristics.

Caring, knowledgable, welcoming and hard working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Buy a bigger farm, help so many more horses and start all the programs on their wish list to help the unwanted horse problem today!
