"Again the early-morning sun was generous with its warmth. All the sounds dear to a horseman were around me - the snort of the horses as they cleared their throats, the gentle swish of their tails, the tinkle of irons as we flung the saddles over their backs - little sounds of no importance, but they stay in the unconscious library of memory." ~Wynford Vaughan-Thomas
Shadow Valley Horse Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing emergency relief, shelter, care, rehabilitation, and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses. SVHR provides community resources through equine education, information and referral services. SVHR is funded through individual donations, grants, bequests and corporate sponsorships.
Our goals for the 2013 year:
- Raise a hay fund sufficient to supply rescues with year round hay in excess of what we currently have
- Improve existing facilities to include more shelter and wind breaks
- Provide education on the need for rescues and adopters
- Hold clinics to educate the community and youth in the area on various aspects of training and horse rescue
- Continue to operate and maintain a recognizable horse rescue operation
- Become approved with the Animal Welfare Fund, all applications submitted.
- Raise awareness to the slaughter reality
