Colorado Horse Rescue
- Horse Rescue
We are Colorado Horse Rescue, and we are building a better future for horses. We see it. We believe in it. And we are here to make it happen. As a 501(c)(3) impact organization operating in Colorado since 1986, we work to continuously reimagine what’s possible and create a reality where safe solutions exist for every horse. CHR rescues horses in the community from dangerous or disadvantaged situations. CHR eases the pain of surrendering one's animal by providing the owner peace of mind in knowing that his/her beloved horse will have a second opportunity to find a loving home. CHR also facilitates the surrender of horses referred by Animal Control due to owner neglect and abandonment. These horses receive the proper care they deserve, and once healthy are provided training so that they may find a permanent home.
Our herd of 60 rescued horses are continuously rehabilitated and adopted into loving homes. We work to educate the public about responsible horse ownership and the approximately 6,000 domestic horses that are in transition in Colorado. CHR offers assistance to committed horse owners in the community who are temporarily struggling financially so that they may keep their horse.
In 2015, Colorado Horse Rescue was honored by the Longmont Chamber of Commerce as Non-Profit of the Year and we are honored with a Top-Rated Award from Great Nonprofits for the services we offer to the community.
