Saving one horse at a time.


HERD - A 501C3 non-profit equine rescue group that saves equines from dire conditions and in many cases slaughter.  HERD volunteers have rescued, vetted, fed, trained, and given these equines a second chance at life.  Many horses and donkeys have been adopted by loving new owners.  This is your chance to be part of a much needed resource for saving these beautiful animals! 

We wish to thank those who have donated generously, providing resources, time and funds to help us rescue and care for the horses in HERD.  It is your belief in our work and our shared love of horses that makes this effort so rewarding for us all.
