Please Read this Entire Page Carefully.
WRR Only accepts horses on a very limited case-by-case basis, so we can provide the best care possible to the horses already with us. We absolutely refuse to take on more than we are able to accommodate at any present time! Our goal is to help many, but our priority is always to give each horse their absolute best chance. We must rescue responsibly.
Showing up at our facility with your horse will NOT guarantee we take your equine. If you'd like to discuss surrendering an equine to WRR, please take the time to fill out our surrender form below with honesty, integrity and as many details as possible. We can secure the best future for your equine if we have their accurate information and history to work with! We understand life happens, hard times fall on everyone and things can get out of control-- this process is not meant to embarrass you in any way and if you've already made it this far on our page, we have respect that you are choosing to seek a good future for your horse.
Once the decision is made, the equine has been officially surrendered to WRR and the form has been signed, the horse is legally owned by Whiskey Ridge Rescue. All rights have been terminated by the previous owners, and all further decisions are made by the WRR Team, at our own discretion. We can not return your horse to you, if you change your mind, UNLESS you are able to cover the cost of his care, board and treatment while they were in our possession.
Please note: We are NOT a retirement facility or sanctuary. We operate as a rescue, whose main goal is to rehabilitate, rehome and promise a secure future for each equine we receive in our care. Each equine will be evaluated by qualified individuals, seen by trainers, vets, farriers, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc. as needed and ads will be posted on our website and social media in hopes to find their adoptive home. We place each animal according to their training level, soundness, capabilities, limitations, age and personality... whether they'll go on to be a show horse, trail partner, kid's pony or "pasture puff", we always put them first when screening prospective adopters. Horses cannot be resold once in a home and will always come back to WRR if something does not work out with their home.
We do ask that if your horse needs to be picked up, travel expenses are covered. Additionally, a donation to assist with intake expenses is greatly appreciated, but not required.
