They often arrive starved, in need of medical attention, and otherwise neglected. These horses require a lot of love and a lot of food before they are back in condition fit enough to be adopted or placed in a new home. In cases where an animal is too old or has too many problems to be safely adopted out, she/he then becomes a member of the Orphan Acres permanent herd. Some of these horses may still be adopted if the right family comes along and can deal with their issues.
"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." - Winston S. Churchill
Horses Helping Humans
Not only do we provide a safe haven for neglected and abused equines but we also play a huge role in the community.
We network with veterans, special needs children, the YMCA, Washington State University, the University of Idaho, and many others to provide education and understanding about, not only our horses, but all horses in general.
In our experience we have found that horses make great mentors and teachers. While we highlight being a rescue and rehabilitation center, we also work with people, helping miracles happen on both ends of the lead rope.
