Description of Rescue

Homestretch Equine Rescue Foundation EIN # 20-1711150, is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing shelter, care, rehabilitation and adoption services for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses. The majority of the horses that FDFER cares for come directly from auction or kill-buyers' feedlots. FDFER provides equine education classes for adults and children.

Because we believe in the humane treatment as an alternative to slaughter or public auction for abused, neglected, abandoned and unwanted horses, Homestretch Equine Rescue Foundation’s primary purpose is the prevention of equine abuse and public education about the horrors of horse slaughter.

Homestretch Equine Rescue Foundation has been in operation for 10 years and incorporated as a non-profit entity since 2005. During that time we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and placed for adoption more than 220 horses, offering them the second chance at life they so richly deserve.

Homestretch Equine Rescue Foundation has two locations: Cody, Wyoming and Centerville, Indiana. We always welcome vistors but ask that you telephone first to make an appointment. Volunteers with and without previous horse experience are welcome.
