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.
In Oct.of 2010 I adopted my mare through Arabian Rescue Mission, which in itself was a blessing itself. As I talked to Terry and her other board member at the time I became close with them, that winter I became a board member as did my husband, it was our way of giving back to this wonderful organization. Since then we have placed many horses and we have really moved forward. We recently placed a big herd of horses, and it was amazing, heart wrenching and rewarding. I will give my all for Terry and the horses of Arabian Rescue Mission because I believe in "US" together making a difference every day saving one horse at a time!
