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 & retirement.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our mission is to provide aid and sanctuary to abused, neglected, abandoned or donated horses that come to us in need. Work with law enforcement and other agencies in their efforts to rectify situations in which horses are in peril. Provide horses in our Sanctuary with needed medical care, proper nutrition and a health plan to restore them physically and mentally for a new life. Continue educational and fundraising efforts to both help us support our rescue efforts and to promote awareness of issues involving neglect and abuse in our area.

Wish List Items

$10,000 Barn Addition
Our barn is used to care for our "special needs" horses, who are being rehabilitated and treated after being rescued from starvation and/or abuse. We also use the barn stalls for horses that have medical conditions that need treatment and observation. We need an addition to the barn to provide more stall space and a separate, clean, dry, secure, rodent-proof area for grain and feed storage.

Retire $60,000 Mortgage On Land Purchase
The Sanctuary was forced to purchase the 63 acres land that they had been using to pasture the Sanctuary horses, otherwise the MFMN would have been at risk of closing. We were able to raise $100k of the $165k purchase price. We currently have $60,000 left on the land mortgage that we want to payoff to save the interest costs.
