Colorado Horse Rescue (CHR) is a non-profit organization that rescues horses in the community from dangerous or disadvantaged situations. We are often a horse owner’s last chance when faced with illness, foreclosure, divorce, natural disaster, or the inevitability of old age. CHR eases the pain 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.
