The Colorado Horse Rescue provides shelter, care, rehabilitation and adoption services for abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted horses

Colorado Horse RescueThe purpose of Colorado Horse Rescue is to promote the prevention of equine abuse because we believe in the humane treatment of and survival as an alternative to slaughter or public auction for abandoned, neglected and unwanted horses. We shall provide shelter, food, daily care, medical treatment, rehabilitation and adoption services for horses in need of such refuge. We shall obtain legal ownership of donated horses accepted into our guardianship, with the goal to place these horses into caring and suitable adoptive homes. We shall search for and examine potential adoptive owners for horses in our custody. We shall serve as a shelter and provide care for legally impounded horses. We shall report and assist legal authorities in resolving equine abuse cases. We shall participate in the rescue and urgent care for horses involved in natural disasters or emergencies. We shall develop and initiate education classes on equine care and handling with the hopes to cultivate prevention of equine abuse due to negligence and ignorance within the community.

Colorado Horse RescueCommonly only one unacceptable option exists for rejected and maltreated horses - that of the killer market. Cruelty is perpetuated for typically the transportation to slaughter houses is extremely inhumane. Countless horses suffer compounded pain and misery, as well as death, before arriving at their fatal destination. CHR is a refuge offering a second chance at life for these horses.

CHR is dedicated to providing urgent care for horses in peril and medical treatment for emaciated horses suffering from starvation. As rescue and rehabilitation are part of the mission, CHR's efforts are also directed to the pursuance of successful adoptions - placing horses in new and caring homes. Additionally, CHR is a shelter for impounded horses - as legal action taken by the State Veterinarian, local and other authorities because of maltreatment by the horse's owner.

CHR accepts donated horses from owners who wish to relinquish ownership for various reasons, such as the owner can no longer provide adequate care or the owner is moving and can not relocate the horse. Many of these donated horses are healthy and are merely in need of a new adoptive family.
