Gus when he first arrived at SHERR
Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement was founded in 2010 to rescue horses in need of food, shelter, and medical attention due to neglect or abuse in an effort to improve their quality of life. Further more, SHERR will provide a place or assist in finding a place of retirement for older horses that are unable to perform the tasks intended for them.
Our Philosophy: Our philosophy is based on the belief that since we domesticated horses, we must take full responsibility for their life. SHERR’s goal is to find permanent placement with responsible loving adoptive homes for horses as companion riding mounts and retired pets. All of them need a home, a sanctuary.

Furthermore, SHERR strives to educate horse-owners and the public about proper equine care, and the problems of neglect and abuse. We work within the bounds of the law to rescue horses from neglectful or abusive owners, rehabilitate sick, underweight and abused horses, and restore them to a state of good health. If necessary, we help to end the suffering of those equines that cannot be rehabilitated by means of humane euthanasia.
