The Equine Rescue Center (ERC) is a 501c3 nonprofit animal welfare organization. We currently have 70 horses living on our pastures. Our goal is to rehabilitate and retrain abandoned, abused or neglected equines to find them new homes and new lives. We additionally provide lifelong sanctuary for elderly horses or those with chronic, incurable conditions, so they can live out their golden years with dignity and love. We strive to help our community, and provide programs that introduce people with special needs to the equines. We adopted out 38 equines to new homes in 2012, and we have adopted out 10 in 2013.
