This chestnut beauty only survived because of their hard work and loving care. Learn about the horse rescue efforts of Last Chance Ranch in Quakertown, PA. They are always in need of volunteers and donations.
Kelly Smith has been involved in horse rescue since the early 1980’s, officially founding Omega Horse Rescue in 1997. With a goal of finding nurturing homes for every horse, donkey, mule and pony that they come into contact with, Kelly has had a tremendous impact on the lives of horses in need around her. With more than 100 horses now coming through their gates annually, Omega Horse Rescue has placed more than 1,300 equines in homes to date.
PARR operates out of one main farm which has stalls available for horses in their program. They utilize a network of foster farms, allowing each horse to have a place to call home while making the transition into their new lives. “We have a few private trainers/farm owners who are willing to open up a stall or two at times for TBs that come into our program, care for the horses, and get them on the way to "fat & happy" while they wait for their new owners to find them. Some of the lucky ones even get training out of the deal and end up a step ahead of the rest,” says Kathy.
Committed to the assistance of abused & neglected equine, Second Chance Equine Association was formed in 2006. To this day, they continue to take horses that have been surrendered to, or seized by, a humane police officer or are in life-threatening situations. The horses are rehabilitated both physically and mentally before they are adopted by a new family.
