Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animals

Mission: Our Mission To provide refuge for equine that might otherwise be abandoned, slaughtered or suffer abuse and neglect. Our sanctuary provides shelter, rehabilitation, and long term to end of life care. We also offer basic education to anyone interested in learning how to take care of equine either already in their care or if they are considering adding an equine member to their family. Our Philosophy We believe that the most stress free world for animals is one that mimics their natural environment as closely as possible. Horses were not meant to spend 23 hours a day in stalls. In the wild, horses roam free, and bond together with their herd... that is what they do here too! Horses are grazing animals and were meant to live primarily on forage. Here in southern Oklahoma, we are blessed with a fairly mild climate. Our horses can comfortably live outdoors all year round with minimal blanketing, and they are supplemented with high quality free choice hay during the winter. To complement our pastures and hay, we feed the horses with high quality feeds. With high levels of energy from fat and low levels from rapidly digestible starch, readily available minerals, and high quality all plant protein ingredients, it is specially designed to meet the energy, mineral and protein needs of our retired equine friends.

We have fund raised and rescued a beautiful aged Mustang mare from a kill pen with the help of an amazing group of followers. I love being a part of this sanctuary!

Our family adopted a beautiful red roan gelding from this rescue, he had been a used as a lesson horse at a stable in New Orleans. When the stable decided to retire him, Grey Oaks Equine Sanctuary rescued him before he was to be sent to a kill lot.

He is a wonderful guy with a fantastic personality. Needless to say we love him very much.

Wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable regarding sanctuary horse care. Took me on an impromptu tour and the horses all looked so happy running together in pure happiness.
While we were at the fence admiring them they came up to see who was visiting.
A fun experience.
