Sunrise Horse Rescue

Sunrise Horse Rescue

What They Do:

Rescue and provide sanctuary, care and companionship to abused, neglected and abandoned horses. Provide humans of all ages with life-enhancing skills and personal growth experiences derived from horsemanship. Sunrise also offers natural horsemanship training, youth education, and many volunteer opportunities. Over 150 horses saved since 2007.

Since our founding 10 years ago, we have rescued and provided life-saving services to over 150 horses.

In addition to providing forever homes at our sanctuary to otherwise un-placeable horses, we also regularly provide assistance and support to horses and horse owners in need in a variety of ways. We provide information on horse health, dietary needs, geriatric care, feed and water, temporary shelter, foster homes, permanent placement assistance and veterinary care and consultations.

Had we not responded and intervened, many of these horses would have become more severe cases of neglect and abandonment.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Spread the word! The more who know about SHR and our good work, the more our fundraising opportunities will grow.
  • Like us on Facebook.
  • Follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
  • Subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed on our good work and share it with others. That is also a good way to learn about volunteer opportunities and events that come up throughout the year.

Business Partners:

We have a wonderful, mutually beneficial relationship with Tamber Bey Winery where we currently lease property to manage our herd.


I’ve never encountered another community organization which focuses the talent, time, and passion of volunteers in such an effective and impressive way. They are highly competent horse people with true compassion and love for these animals.
