Our featured horses are Precious and her filly Lucky Star. Precious is a 9 year old mare who, along with being gorgeous, is rideable. Her new foal, Lucky Star, was the 2nd foal born this year, and is very friendly. She will walk all the way across the field just to say hi to you! For more information on this lovable pair, check out www.getahorse.org.
Summer is here and the babies have arrived! There are almost too many to count, and the number of foals is increasing almost daily! Keep checking back for new arrivals at www.getahorse.org!
Who We Are
We are a horse rescue and adoption nonprofit foundation based in metropolitan Denver, Colorado. We place many foals and horses in adoptive loving homes including PMU foals, retired thoroughbred racers, and a number of horses being auctioned for human consumption.
How You Can Help
We need volunteers, foster families and adoptive families for the horses. We are also always in need of feed, bedding and monetary donations. This spring we are desperately seeking funds to vaccinate all of the rescue horses against West Nile Fever.
Come Visit Us!
Volunteers are welcomed every Saturday and Sunday mornings from 9 am to 12 noon at our Peoria facility. Volunteer hours are Saturday and Sunday 9am to 11am at the Orchard Barn. All volunteers must attend an orientation class before volunteering. The classes are offered the first Saturday and Sunday of each month, from 9 to 11 am. There is a $20 donation requested to take the class. Experience with horses is not necessary. Be sure to wear boots, jeans and bring work gloves. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
