Central New England Equine Rescue was founded in 2003, we grew out of the need to rescue from slaughter and find adoptive homes for the ever-increasing number of abandoned and improperly cared for horses. Our mission at Central New England Equine Rescue,Inc is to rescue and rehabilitate horses, restoring them to their natural health and good spirit. Our volunteers provide a safe environment for healing. We have implemented an educational program on the proper care of horses to aid in the prevention of abuse and cruelty in the Northeast.


We are an all volunteer organization that rescues abused and abandoned horses; we search out the appropriate adoptive home. Central New England Equine Rescue, Inc. participates in nationwide rescues of Premarin foals, shipping them from slaughter houses in other parts of the country and from Canada into our nurturing environment where they can heal. We rescue and provide direct care for horses and all their needs. We are funded solely through tax deductible contributions.Educational Program for community in place. Working with city youth and with 4-H clubs. Preventing abuse and neglect of the horse and all creatures whenever and wherever possible.

What can be more noble than giving back life and dignity to these beautiful creatures? The sad truth is too often, horses are treated as disposable and left to horrific circumstances when they need our help most. CNEER works tirelessly to save the abused, the neglected and the forgotten and give them a chance to live out their days with the love and care they deserve. Such a positive and heartening thing in today's cold world.

I've known Betsy and her family for about 27 yrs. Since the Ludlow 4H Saddle Pals days. The amount of care and love,the way they looked, and talked about their Abe, you could tell how dedicated they were to him. Now thank goodness they are sharing that with so many others. As you can see, it's not just the horses but to all the kids and people involved. They give so much time and money to save, restore, love all these animals. It's woderful. But it doesn't stop there. It extends to dogs, cats, chickens :), rabbits, whatever needs love. What a great group of people. It's an inspiration. I'm glad to know them!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ive seen their tireless efforts. Seen these horses before and after. Personally experienced how much they care and share their knowledge helping me through some scary times with my horses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of any. Maybe have many more just like this one :)

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

seeing the horses come out on the other side. Seeing the success stories of which there have been and will be many.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful. How they give so much of their time to the animals and the kids. They are selfless. They have great energy.

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

be a million times more wonderful!

Ways to make it better...

There was no need for this at all. If all animals were treated with kindness and respect. And of course loved like they deserve to be.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

So many to save. Maybe more resources, time, money. Less heartlessness on the part of the people abusing and neglecting all these horses.

One thing I'd also say is that...

You guys rock! And most of all thank you. You are appreciated.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
