Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Sunkissed Acres is an Equine Rescue and Retirement facility. Our goals:
to rehabilitate and re-home those who are able to still be of service to others
to offer a quality, safe, lifetime home for the aged and infirm
to end the suffering of those whom it is deemed necessary
Several of the horses spend their time as therapeutic riding horses while they await loving homes, as do some of our permanent residents. They enjoy their work as therapeutic partners while remaining safe with Sunkissed Acres. We have found homes for hundreds of horses over the years, we have lost others to and old age, and we have euthanized those who were beyond our help.
Horses that find their refuge at Sunkissed Acres remain part of our mission for the rest of their days. While most go on to find loving homes, should the circumstances arise that they can no longer be cared for, arrangements are made for their return to Sunkissed Acres.
