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 operates programs involved with horses and other animals.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Days End Farm Horse Rescue's mission is to ensure quality care and treatment of horses through intervention, education and outreach.

Horse-related programs:
DEFHR rescues, rehabilitates, trains and adopts horses. The farm houses 50-80 horses daily, accepts about 115 impounded horses yearly, has rehabilitated over 2,260 horses since 1989, and adopted out 94% of them. Selected horses are in off-site training or off-site sponsor care (SOS) homes. Our SOS Program helps care for horses that take longer to adopt.The farm has a trained staff and volunteers to provide critical and extended care, including round-the-clock care and monitoring. DEFHR's volunteer Large Animal Rescue Team offers free-of-charge rescue services locally, as well as national disaster emergency response. The organization maintains a fully equipped emergency response horse trailer with specialized equipment for 24/7 response. DEFHR also provides instruction to individuals regarding horse care and proper maintenance.

Non-horse-related programs:
Emergency and rescue services are available for large animals that include, but are not limited to, equines. DEFHR currently has six goats, two sheep and two miniature donkeys rescued from situations of abuse and neglect. These animals help promote awareness and compassion during on-site events and educational programs.
