Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our goal is to create a safe-haven for horses that have few options remaining, thereby ensuring them a better quality of life. At Horses of Tir Na Nog, we help build connections between people and horses in the San Diego community, increasing awareness about responsible horse ownership and care through education.
Horses of Tir Na Nog is the longest operating non-profit horse sanctuary in San Diego County. We are currently caring for 50 equines (including a herd of mustangs and eight burros), 23 sheep, one llama, one alpaca, four dogs, and four goats). We provide life-long care. Our horses are placed in our care by the County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. We became an Adoption Partner with Animal Services in 2008. Since that time, Animal Services has not euthanized a single medically manageable equine. Horses are placed in our care due to age, arthritis or other chronic medical conditions.
We have worked with Animal Services to provide a forever home to a variety of livestock, including sheep and goats. We have also taken in several dogs that thrive in a ranch environment but were otherwise considered adoptable.
