The mission of Orphan Acres Equine, Rehabilitation, and Sanctuary, Inc. is to provide care and rehabilitation for abandoned, neglected, abused, and malnourished horses, while educating the public regarding the issues surrounding rescue and rehabilitation including all aspects of horse ownership and care.


We have had over 4,000 abused and neglected equines pass through our gates sense our foundation in 1975. We have placed over half of those and the rest lived out their lives in peace, dignity and love. We have also helped countless individuals who require a four legged therapist, from working with veterans to special needs children all can benefit from the quiet understanding of a horse.

Target demographics:

abused and neglected equines

Direct beneficiaries per year:

the 83 horses that called our herd home. We placed 4 into forever loving homes and rescued 5.

Geographic areas served:

Pacific north west but have had animals placed here from as fare away as Maine


our permanent herd, for horses to old and abused to be safely transferred again. We also have retraining and gentling of our adoptable herd as well. We are directly beneficial to the community at large through our horse rescue and adoption programs and as an educational facility. In addition the community benefits through the classes and clinics offered to students from the universities, youth, adults and individuals with disabilities from the surrounding communities, all at no cost.

I met Brent Glover several years ago as a delivery driver in his area. After researching his organization I find that very few people are as compassionate and knowledgeable about horses as he is. His dedication is understood only after a visit to his rescue. His organization is responsible for saving literally thousands of perfectly good horses. The proof is in the pudding!
