Our Mission ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Pony Tales Refuge & Rehab, Inc., is a 501(c)3, nonprofit, volunteer-based animal welfare organization established in 2014 to ensure quality care and treatment of horses through intervention, education and outreach. Pony Tales is dedicated to rescuing equines of all kinds from abuse, neglect, abandonment and slaughter. We provide them with a safe, loving home during recovery and rehabilitation while providing food, shelter, medical care, nurturing and training. We select the horses we rescue based on need and future quality of life, with the ultimate goal of finding them forever homes. We also take in horses in any condition due to situations of abuse, neglect and abandonment. We also provide a refuge for equines that are too mentally and/or physically traumatized to ever be adopted, as well as a comfortable, loving home for elderly horses to live out their final days in peace.
We believe it is the responsibility of every horse owner to breed and geld responsibly. The number of horses in this country going to slaughter and/or living in deplorable conditions is unacceptable. We are committed to informing and educating the community, with an emphasis on the youth, about the problems associated with over-breeding and irresponsible breeding of horses and to teach responsible horse ownership. We believe that it is imperative that the youth learn about the realities and atrocities that exist in the horse world. It is only through the youth that we have a chance of improving the lives of all equines in the future.
