How We Impact the Community

Our mission is to rescue and provide sanctuary for abused and neglected horses in Napa and surrounding counties, educate the public about current issues affecting horse welfare, and provide community members the unique benefit of equine-assisted learning and therapy.

We are unique in that we never turn a horse in need away, even when we are at capacity at our sanctuary in Calistoga. Through our very active Horse in Need Program, we triage each and every call we receive and provide critical resources like veterinary support, feed and transport. Last year we received 112 calls regarding horses in need. We responded to each one, and were able to intervene at the critical moment and ensure that each horse received what they needed and had a safe landing place. If intervention had not occurred the vast majority of these horses would end up severely neglected, abused or slaughtered.

sunrise horse rescue


Sunrise serves horses in life threatening situations in Napa County and beyond. Horses are extremely vulnerable. Without the support of our donors, our ability to provide shelter, medical care and food would not be possible.
