The Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition is dedicated to helping horse owners struggling to provide for their animals, and to saving as many horses as possible from abuse, abandonment and neglect. Our coalition of rescue organizations, veterinarians, law enforcement officials, equine media, and concerned citizens provides responsible horse owners with hay, veterinary, and humane euthanasia assistance, and assists law enforcement agencies with the response to equine neglect, abandonment, and cruelty cases.
Thanks for visiting!

Here is a wonderful listing of accredited rescue/retirement facilities across the United States for thoroughbreds (though some of the farms do take in other horses). Some of these places serve as private retirement farms, where the owner pays a low monthly fee for the care of their horse for the rest of his/her life.
We sure wish we had an accredited retirement farm here in Michigan so that owners with aging equines had more options!
