WHO WE ARE
The Equine Rescue Network is a 501c3 organization that rescues unwanted equines from slaughter (Horses/Donkeys/Mules). In 2017, we rescue over 160 equines and placed them in approved homes throughout out the USA.
We successfully place so many unwanted equines because we have a massive network of 227,000 equine advocates working collaboratively to make a difference. We are staffed entirely by volunteers so 100% of donations go toward helping equines.
WHAT WE DO
ERN purchases horses, donkeys and mules from the slaughter pens in Louisiana and Texas. We transport these rescues to Virginia, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts for
rehab, retraining and rehoming
We have a quarantine barn that currently houses 5 donkeys, 2 who are so weak they are unable to stand up on their own. We rely on strong volunteers daily to get them on their feet. Their prognosis is excellent. They are not contagious - just emaciated and wormy.
