The fastest way to help is to donate money. IHR constantly receives calls and emails about horses in need of rescue; many are in dire condition and need immediate care. 

IHR is funded entirely by individual donations, private and corporate trusts, and charitable foundations.  It costs a great deal of money to rescue these horses, and we depend on the generosity of people like you to be able to continue this work. Every donation is crucial, no matter how big or how small.

There are many ways in which you can help the rescue horses at IHR.

You can sponsor a specific horse and watch as “your” horse is rehabilitated and rehomed. Others donors sometimes sponsor a horse in memory of their own or another’s beloved equine. Another fantastic way some donors give is to donate in their name for a birthday, anniversary, or a special occasion instead of traditional gifts. Email if you are interested.
