Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
YHS took its first big step towards expanding its mission to include abused and neglected equines with the purchase of a 7.3-acre Chino Valley property equipped with barns and stalls. This purchase is designed to allow YHS to bring equines under the umbrella of its life-saving animal welfare programs. The property was previously occupied by the Hacienda de los Milagros sanctuary, which closed its doors in 2013. HDLM was an equine sanctuary based in Chino Valley since 1993; and had been home to as many as 145 burros and horses.rnOur community has struggled to find a safe place for homeless, abandoned, and neglected equines. It has always been YHS’ goal to fill this gap and provide a haven for these animals in need.
