Mission: Miracle Horse Rescue founded in 2001, was established because of abuse and neglect within the equine world. Miracle Horse Rescue is a Rescue/Sanctuary which provides care, love and rehabilitation to equines that have suffered varying degrees of abuse and neglect. The goal of Miracle Horse Rescue is to rehabilitate each horse to the best of it's ability and to locate responsible, caring homes through our established adoption program developed for the sole purpose of protecting the horse. For those horses unable to be rehabilitated due to various reasons, they will live out the remainder of their lives at the Miracle Horse Facility. This is a NO KILL/NO SLAUGHTER facility and a horse is only humanely euthinazed upon the advisement of a Qualified Equine Veterinarian to end undue pain and suffering. Miracle Horse Rescue has established a new program which began January 8th, 2006. This program is available to the public free of charge and we are instructing "Responsible Horse Ownership and Care", additionally we are instructing "Horse Safety and Basic Horsemanship Skills" We are utilizing postive interaction with rescued horses which gives the general public first hand information on the abuse and neglect that is occuring in the equine industry.
Target demographics: horses in need
Direct beneficiaries per year: two mares that were slaughter bound. One mare was in foal and gave birth on May 14th, 2013 to a healthy little mule. They are able to live receiving care and love. The overall goal is to locate and adopt the horses at our facility to forever, committed homes. Due to the strain on the economy, adoptions are down however the horses still receive the love and care they so justly deserve.

I've been a supporter of MHR since 2006. I learned about MHR through the Fans of Barbaro website, and soon came to know Stephanie and Rob Pierce personally. I have visited MHR three times for lengthy stays, and have sponsored a horse, Trooper, since 2008, in addition to being a regular donor. MHR takes wonderful care of the horses, who are happy and healthy. I have seen frightened, abused horses learn to love and trust under Stephanie and Rob's care. The horses' needs always come first with Stephanie and Rob Pierce. MHR maintains transparency for all medical and financial transactions, so you really know where your money is going and why. MHR also requires screening of adopters and adoption contracts, which requires that any adopter no longer able to care for or keep an MHR horse must return the horse to MHR. I know from personal experience that MHR holds adopters to this requirement. MHR also staunchly supports anti-slaughter and other equine welfare initiatives. MHR does not take on more horses than it can care for, and Stephanie and Rob know each horse very well individually. --Susan Eckles, St. Louis, MO
