Mission: Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue, RVHR, founded in 2002, evolved out of the need in our community for assistance with horses being found in undesirable situations. RVHR is comprised of a serving Board of Directors who volunteer their time to this effort and are joined by volunteers in our community who may also become members of our organization. RVHR is dedicated to educating the public on these issues and how they can be avoided as well as providing assistance to horse owners in our area that are dealing with a similar situation. Other efforts include providing educational clinics on horsemanship and horse care in general for our horse community.We also provide a refuge at our facility for horses that are in need due to starvation or neglect as well as helping these horses find new loving and suitable homes where they shall be watched over by RVHR for the rest of their lives.
