Habitat for Horses can always be relied upon to keep me informed on the very latest news on all things related to the well being of horses, both in the wild in the arena, and those retired. It is very active in trying to rescue horses in the slaughter pipeline, from the last act of kindness if that is all that can be done, to restoring to health and adopting them out. I have been reading their daily emails for years, and they have earned my trust as an unbiased source.

Habitat for Horses has an important job. To educate those who are unaware of the importance of saving American icons and a piece of our American Heritage. If I lived closer, I would volunteer, but the best I can do is donate.

Wish I could adopt one of their horses, but have to do the next best thing, which is to support them so others may adopt their wonderful animals. Thanks for being there.

I hope to be adopting a horse in the near future with this organization. Several years ago I applied for and was accepted as a suitable facility/private barn for adoption and had been in touch with several individuals working with Habitat for horses organizations. I receive the newsletter and look each time for a horse to add to my already adopted abused horse "forever home". I was very impressed-and still am-with their facility, expertise, and willingness to go out of their way to rescue those horses in need and to be professional and diligent in their placement of these animals. I have donated to them in the past and will in the future as well.

I don't remember how I found this non-profit, but I was impressed with their website and heart felt stories and I enjoy receiving newsletters from them containing current happenings and goals. I am also a monthly donor.

Habitat for Horses goes above and beyond many horse rescues. They travel across Texas helping law enforcement rescue equine that are abused and neglected. They bring these horses back to their ranch where their staff and volunteers spend 100s of hours bringing them back to health, retraining them and adopting them out to loving homes. On top of that their service to the community is exceptional - Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Programs, visits to nursing homes and schools, parades and more. Not to mention the educational articles on their website. I love HfH and always will be a big supporter.

Habitat for Horses is saving horses that are unwanted. They are saving horses every day. They take those horses that are starving and rehabilitate them. For those horses that are adoptable they find them loving homes. They need help to be able to continue the care as expenses for feed, veterinarian care, farrier bills and other related expenses increase daily.
Help them to continue their goal of rescuing horses and keeping them from going to slaughter.

Habitat for Horses is dedicated to helping horses and donkeys. As the owner of 2 rescue horses, I understand the issues they face on a daily basis. Their dedication to helping these wonderful animals is unmatched.

Habitat for Horses is dedicated to helping horses on all levels, from rescue, to adoption, to wild horse issues. When I needed to find a home for a 33 year old mare, they didn't hesitate to connect me with local horse rescue folks in my region, and when that didn't pan out they offered to place her in a home close to them.

They are my go-to place for information for articles - I can always rely on their integrity and dedication to both horses and people.
