Mission: The United States Equine Rescue League (USERL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the compassionate care of equines. Our mission is to save, protect, and rehabilitate equines in need. We rescue abused, neglected, or abandoned equines; provide them with care and rehabilitation; and finally find them a compatible, loving home. We believe that education is the long-term solution to improving the lives of equines.
Target demographics: Neglected/abused/abandoned horses, mules and donkeys. USERL assists counties with equine cases, providing housing, nutritional and medical care (and training when needed) with a final goal of finding a new loving adoptive home.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 100 horses averaged per year.
Geographic areas served: North Carolina and Virginia.
Programs: Horse Program, Volunteer Program, Foster Program and Adoption Program, Education Program.
