Our Mission



Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, Inc., is a 501(c)3 nonprofit draft horse rescue led by Dr. Stacey Golub, an equine veterinarian based in CT. Our team of rescuers also includes veterinary assistants, experienced horse people, trainers and farriers. We bail drafts out of slaughter broker lots, help place owner surrenders, and make trips to the auction to bid against slaughter buyers. Being run by a veterinarian allows us to provide medical and surgical care for special needs horses with less concern for expenses, and they receive the best of care under direct vet supervision. Once horses are vetted, quarantined, rehabbed, and evaluated for training, they are rehomed to local experienced horse people with a strict contract for their lifelong protection.

Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, Inc., is a non-profit equine rescue dedicated to improving the lives of draft horses by saving them from situations which threaten their health and well-being, including neglect or abuse situations, slaughter broker lots or auctions where they may be sold to slaughter, and those whose owners can no longer provide for their needs.  Horses coming through our rescue are quarantined, medically evaluated and treated, receive farrier care, vaccinations, deworming and dental care, and are then evaluated for riding or driving ability to determine the appropriate match for their “forever” home when they are placed for adoption.&nbs
