Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

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.

Geographic areas served: rescue

I have been associated with MHR since 2006 while following Barbaro. I too was drawn to MHR through the owner, Stephanie Pierce and her genuine love for the plight of horses in need because of abandonment, neglect and abuse. I have visited MHR several times and have since become a friend and supporter of the ranch. Stepanie and her husband Rob care for and love these wonderful creatures like no other.

Recent times have been difficult for the economy and it always seems to be the animals that suffer the most. Financial support is essential and would be greatly appreciated. It is necessary that Stephanie and Rob often use their own funds. The horses always come first, always!

It is an honor to support MHR.

I found MHR while following Barbaro. I am not a horse racing fan but the plight of horses that have been mis -treated and/ or sold for "horse meat" tore at my heart. MHR takes the disabled, mis-treated, no longer wanted, only wanted for their urine type of horses and gives them a dignified home for the rest of their lives. The owners put the horses first and their lives second. Everything is done for the horses. They receive medical care and the best hay possible. I have been fortunate to watch the births of foals whose mothers were slated for slaughter because they were no longer wanted.
MHR has a great adoption policy and the horses are followed after an adoption takes place. No rescue horses are sold but rather adopted out with a "take back" clause written in the contract.
So many non profits ask for money to pay "salaries" of the non profit. This is not the case at MHR. All donations received go towards the care of these magnificant animals.

I discovered Miracle Horse Rescue in 2006 or 2007 and have been an enthusiastic supporter ever since. I've visited the ranch in Pahrump several times and have had the honor of getting to know the owners/caretakers, Stephanie and Rob Pierce, very well, as well as other members of their family. They all have the magic touch in dealing with the various equines under their care. They know right away if one of the critters is ailing or injured and are dedicated to making sure they get appropriate care/food.

Times have been especially tough in Southern Nevada and the stories of people and animals suffering through it are heartbreaking. Sad to say that right now (at the end of September 2014) MHR is at capacity in order to support the current equine population. There have been many wonderful adoption stories over the years, but right now people are not adopting. In addition, many/most of the horses at MHR are not suitable for adoption because of age, physical or mental condition. But they all have what they need and will be taken care of very well until their times do come.

ANY financial support is very much appreciated as every dollar goes to the care and feeding of the equines and truly helps.

It's my privilege to support this wonderful organization and I hope you will too.
