About Horse Rescue United, Inc.
Horse Rescue United, Inc. (HRU) saves horses of all breeds from abandonment, abuse, neglect, and slaughter. We specialize in retraining and rehoming Standardbred horses.
Whenever possible, HRU purchases slaughter-bound horses from auction and finds them homes, and also helps owner surrenders find placement before they end up in the wrong hands.
HRU is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization; your donations are tax-deductible and we are run entirely by unpaid volunteers.
Adopt a Horse
You can help HRU by offering a home to one of our horses; you'll give your new horse a second chance while also making room for another to be saved.
HRU horses are available to approved homes within a five hour drive of Jackson, NJ on minimum 60 day trial periods to ensure the right match. HRU horses are also kept up-to-date on medical, dental, and farrier needs.
Before a horse can be placed, an adoption application must be submitted and approved. To start the process, please download both an adoption application and contract/agreement below. Please only complete and submit the application, but review the contract to ensure you agree to HRU's adoption terms and requirements.
Once your application is completed and signed by hand, please scan and email it to email@example.com; if you don't have access to a scanner, please email us to obtain a volunteer's fax number or mailing address.
Become a Sponsor
HRU is always greatly in need of sponsors and donations to care for our horses until homes are found.
