The mission at Bay State Equine Rescue is, first and foremost, to preserve equine integrity through care that provides physical, mental and emotional health. In efforts to address the larger picture, Bay State also fights to raise public awareness for these horses through regional youth education, legislation, horsemanship education, animal care awareness and community service opportunities.
Blue Star Equiculture was founded on five basic beliefs: that horses and humans fundamentally belong together, that all horses deserve loving homes where their physical and social needs will be met, that “work” should not have a pejorative connotation, that in these troubled economic and environmental times, working horses offer a sustainable means of equine husbandry, and that all horses everywhere have immeasurable gifts to share with humanity.
“NEER remains dedicated to rescuing horses who are abused, neglected, or at-risk of slaughter,” says Mary. “In addition to rescues, NEER educates the public on responsible horse ownership and networks to help where assistance is needed.”
