The Horse Shelter

The mission of The Horse Shelter is to serve as a sanctuary for New Mexico’s abandoned, abused and neglected horses. Rescued horses will be rehabilitated and adopted out whenever possible to environments that support their well-being and future long term care.

The Horse Shelter exists to serve and improve the lives of as many of New Mexico’s abused, abandoned and neglected horses as possible. Congruent with our mission we strongly support alternatives to the slaughter of horses for human consumption or other purposes.  Instead, we advocate for population control and humane euthanasia to be legislated into practice and receive public funding.

We disseminate information on proper horse care for horse owners and make every attempt to assist individuals in the care of their horses. The Horse Shelters mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and facilitate the adoption of abused, abandoned and neglected horses throughout New Mexico. Shelter horses are housed in run-in stalls, large paddocks and turn-outs. We maintain a healthy feeding regimen and provide veterinary and farrier care. We aim to exercise our horses when appropriate. We utilize our training program to get them ready for adoption to carefully screened new owners. For some horses The Horse Shelter will be a life-long sanctuary due to their history, age or medical condition.
