Who We Are

Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501 c3, volunteer based, animal welfare organization. Days End Farm was established in 1989 to ensure quality care and treatment of horses through intervention, education, and outreach. Since its beginning, Days End Farm has been a place where children and adults have found enrichment, satisfaction, sadness and purpose through helping to provide care for unwanted, abused or neglected horses. Since its inception, Days End Farm has gone from a small non-profit that sheltered only a few horses annually to a full scale well-respected national rescue and rehabilitation facility housing 50 to 70 horses at any given time. Days End Farmís budget, and corresponding donations, have grown from $50,000 annually to over $1,200,000 in a twenty year span! In 2008 alone, over 1200 adults and children volunteered their efforts, helping the Farm to achieve its mission. Equally as important to its successful growth has been Days End Farm's increased focus on humane education, and providing Disaster and Large Animal Rescue Services on both local and national levels. As Days End continues to grow, so has the need for adequate space required by the horses and programs. The old 18 acre farm served us well during our earlier years but was literally bursting at the seams, with every square inch in use. Finally, in 2008 we were able to find a farm that would meet the needs of the horses in our care and the programs we provide. On April 30, 2008 we made the move to our New Farm facility. Our new facility includes 58 rolling acres of grass and trees that allow the horses acres to run and play as well as providing many outbuildings that will serve the needs of our horses, volunteers, our programs and our many friends and donors!! Your support is always needed to help care for the horses, grow existing programs, initiate new programs, and maintain our facility. Please help us help the horses by donating whatever you can to help !

Adopting a friend

We adopt to the entire state of Maryland and 100 miles from Days End Farm into the states of VA, DE, PA. We do not have the funds or manpower to do this properly in other areas. Days End Farm does farm inspections before adoption and follow up visits on all our adopted horses for three years. After three years, the adopter may be granted legal title, at the discretion of the Board of Directors, based on the adopter's care of their adopted horse. Note: Days End Farm Horse Rescue does not sell horses. We do ask for an adoption donation to help defray the costs of rehabilitating future horses. Adoption donations range from $300 to $1200 and are accepted in cash, certified check, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. All horses adopted from Days End Farm Horse Rescue are current with their shots, coggins, trimming, worming and have been vetted. When adopted, copies of all medical records or history that we have for each horse, will be given to the adopter. Although we evaluate each horse before they are made available for adoption, we recommend that before you adopt a horse, you ask a veterinarian for a pre-purchase exam to insure that the horse you are adopting is suitable for the work you plan to do.

Come Visit Us!

Our hours of operation are from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, seven days a week. If you would like to visit and receive a tour, it is best to do so between the hours of 10:00am and 2:30pm daily as staff is feeding the horses at 8am and 3pm and may not be readily available to escort you around the farm at those times. If you would like us to arrange an educational or special presentation for a large group please contact us to make arrangements.
