ABOUT

OUR MISSION

The Horse Shelter serves as a sanctuary for New Mexico’s abandoned, abused and neglected horses. Rescued horses will be rehabilitated and adopted out whenever possible to environments that support their well-being and future long-term care.

First and foremost, we are dedicated to providing a safe, healthy environment for rescued horses. We follow up on each and every report we receive of horse abuse or neglect. We disseminate information on proper horse care for horse owners and make every attempt to assist individuals in the care of their horses.

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and facilitate the adoption of abused, abandoned, and neglected horses throughout New Mexico.

Shelter horses are housed in run-in stalls, large paddocks and turn-outs. We maintain a healthy feeding regimen and provide veterinary and farrier care. We aim to exercise our horses when appropriate. We utilize our training program to get them ready for adoption to carefully screened new owners.

For some horses The Horse Shelter will be a life-long sanctuary due to history, age, or medical condition.
