Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Horse Welfare
Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.
Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue & adoption.
Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.
100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.
Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
We provide a safe haven for horses at risk due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. We provide immediate veterinary, dental and farrier care, set up a rehabilitation program, and find suitable adoptive homes within two hours of Lima, NY. Potential adopters are screened and visited for compatibility and safety. No Begin Again horse can ever be sold, but must be returned to Begin Again for rehoming. We help community members with temporary health issues to keep their horses. We educate the public to equine needs by setting good examples at home and through outreach programs. The farm is open to visitors for tours and educational purposes. With only one paid staff member, we can assure donors that all funds raised go directly to support needy horses.
Our organization is dedicated to helping at-risk horses to recover from their ordeals. We provide shelter and other services to help them to recover and be adopted. We provide hay, grain and volunteer services to community members who find themselves temporarily in need to help them to keep their horses at home. We give talks and demonstrations about the plight of unwanted horses and good animal husbandry at our outreach programs. We provide work situations to individuals ordered by the courts to do public service, workers from the Livingston County Department of Social Services' Mobile Work Force. and mentally challenged individuals brought to us by the ARC, We provide transportation and temporary housing for local humane societies that have no facilities or trailers. Horses are evaluated for health needs and training and matched with suitable adopters when recovered. Volunteers at Begin Again Horse Rescue are educated in good animal husbandry techniques.
We provide transportation and temporary housing for animals other than horses when called upon, though our expressed mission is to help horses. We have helped care for and place cows, a goat, a sheep, a dog and chickens.
