A Home for Mustangs To The Rescue

We Need Your Help! Consider making a donation. Truly Every Donation Counts.

Each year, over 100,000 horses are trucked over our borders to be slaughtered. Slaughter is a brutal and terrifying end for horses. Horses are shipped in over-crowed trucks, for over 24 hours at a time; without food, water, or rest. They are often seriously injured or killed in transit.

The unwanted horse. The abused horse. The neglected horse. The horse whose loving owner had died and didn’t have a ‘after’ plan. The horse whose owner suffered financial hardship.

These are the horse we help.

The mission of Mustangs To The Rescue, an all-breed, all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit equine rescue, is to positively impact the community we serve by supporting horses, their owners and potential owners, with assistance, resources and educational opportunities, thus improving the lives of horses and humans in our community.

And we need your help. The most common reason that equine rescues fail is loss of lease/property.
Imagine moving two dozen horses and all the equipment and supplies needed to care for them – as a volunteer.

So far, we’ve been very fortunate to have properties owners willing to donate the use of their property to us and we have grown from a one person, one horse private rescue to an official 501c3 nonprofit rescuing hundreds of horses, supported by a posse of volunteers, donors and our community. But we too have had to move – two times in the last four years when the properties were listed for sale.

I’m writing today to ask you to ask for your help. Mustangs To The Rescue has identified a property that will be an ideal permanent home for our equine rescue and community center in Central Oregon!
The current owners have made us a fabulous deal! Now we need the funds, approximately $475,000, to cover the cost of purchasing the property, make necessary improvements and set up a fund to help maintain the facility and the horses in perpetuity.

The new property provides a secure home for Mustangs To The Rescue’s programs and rescued equines with a well-appointed 14-stall barn, enclosed round pen, outdoor arena, 35 acres of irrigated pastures, hay storage, office, caretaker’s quarters and community meeting space and will enable us to offer self-sustaining, revenue-producing services such as boarding, clinics and workshops.

Every donations counts. This is a unique opportunity for you to impact your community for generations to come.
