Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
We at the Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County strive to represent both horse and human interests by creating a forum which promotes personal growth through equine interaction and care, as well as learning and rehabilitation. This unique forum supports an environment of unconditional love and companionship in which rescued horses and people can work together towards healing each other. Both humans and horses gain a solid purpose, thereby strengthening their ability to be a positive force in the lives of others and of themselves.
