Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Aiken Department of Public Safety is committed to protecting the life and property of our citizens while promoting a safe community. We dedicate ourselves to maintaining the highest level of integrity, service and accountability to those we serve.
We operate a Large Animal Rescue Team to support our very large equine community. The team is operated by the department, however it is solely funded through donations for all equipment and training. We do not bill for our services. We operate two horse ambulances and respond to emergencies in our county, surrounding counties, and statewide for disaster aid.
Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Public Service
Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
