Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization's primary activity is equine rescue & adoption.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To rescue, rehabilitate, and provide refuge for abused, neglected and abandoned horses.

To provide public education and knowledge of animal care and welfare.

To present animal cruelty and neglect.

Horse-related programs:
• Growth and public awareness has been another focus of IHR over the last year. As a new organization, we have worked hard on building a network of donors and support via IHR’s Facebook page and non-profit website. Through these outlets, we have also raised awareness of equine suffering and provided a gathering place for concerned citizens who look to help battle this ongoing problem. By continuing to develop our marketing campaign, we aim to spread awareness beyond our community and reach horse owners and lovers on a national level. One specific example is how we have used social media to rally support for changing the current legislature in Idaho, one of only three states which does not attach felony charges to animal cruelty cases, something Idaho Horse Rescue is passionate about changing.

Non-horse-related programs:
