Our Mission

Follow updates on current and adopted HRU horses at

Horse Rescue United, Inc. (HRU) saves horses of all breeds from abandonment, abuse, neglect, and slaughter. We specialize in retraining and rehoming Standardbred horses.

Whenever possible, HRU purchases slaughter-bound horses from auction and finds them homes, and also helps owner surrenders find placement before they end up in the wrong hands.

HRU is a registered New Jersey not-for-profit business (EIN number: 611624915) and 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; donations to HRU are tax-deductible.

Adoption Policy

You can help HRU by offering a home to one of our horses; you'll give your new horse a second chance while also making room for another to be saved. HRU horses are available to approved homes within the United States on minimum 60 day trial periods to ensure the right fit for both horse and adopter. HRU horses are also kept up-to-date on medical, dental, and farrier needs.

HRU has an adoption application that must be approved before a horse can be placed in a permanent or foster home.

HRU is always greatly in need of sponsors and donations to care for our horses until homes are found.
