Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes criminally abused, neglected and abandoned farm animals.
Rescue – working in cooperation with law enforcement and county humane organizations, we provide our service to Ohio and any state beyond requesting assistance.
Rehabilitation – providing the veterinary attention, nutrition and maintenance care and nurture to each animal who enters the sanctuary.
Re-home – networking to find loving and forever homes for each animal based on the best match of people, personalities and facilities.
Happy Trails handles the recovery and rehabilitation of the rescued animals, and also provides educational and community outreach programs. Since its creation in 2000, Happy Trails has accepted responsibility for the rehabilitation, daily care, veterinary and other health care expenses, retraining and re-homing of more than 4,000 farm animals and horses. Happy Trails has several equine (horse) specific programs, which include the Amish Horse Retirement Program and the Pasture Pals Program. In these programs, horses are rehabilitated appropriately and adopted out accordingly so that they may live out the remainder of their lives comfortably. In 2018, Happy Trails brought on a dedicated Equine Placement Coordinator to honor our commitment to rescuing and re-homing equine.
