We provide care and rehabilitation for abandoned, neglected, abused and malnourished horses while educating the public in equine rescue, rehabilitation and all aspects of horse ownership and care.

Thanks to generous donors and dedicated volunteers we are pleased to announce that after 40 years Orphan Acres, Inc. is still growing strong! To celebrate we are throwing a celebration on September 12th highlighting the work that has been done, the impact you have made, and our plans for future.

Please join us at noon on September 12th for the perfect summer's end celebration! The horses and we would love to see you there! Event details...

Since our inception in 1975 we have found homes for over 2830 of the over 4000 horses, plus 200 wildlife animals placed here. All wildlife has been returned to its native habitat. But we can't do this alone! With your interest and support, we can continue to make a positive difference in many horses' lives for many years to come! The photos below of some Orphan Acres rehabilitated horses show what can be accomplished.
