Nonprofit Overview

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.

USERL is a large part of my life. I learned about it about 8 yrs ago and my roles have increased each year. I currently serve on the Board and direct NENC and VATW regions. This job is the hardest and most satisfying work I have ever done.
