Save Them All Horse Rescue is an equine rescue located in Northern California. We are a no frills, all-volunteer run, certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization made up of consistently hard-working volunteers dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating abandoned, abused, neglected, and unwanted horses. We have grown to where we assist 12-20 horses per year.
Although the name of our rescue states an impossible task, it is not one we will stop dreaming or working towards. We need the community's help to help the horses in our care and those who come next.
STAHR began in 2011 as a life's dream of Vicki Greene, founder and President of Save Them All Horse Rescue. From the words of our Founder, "Save Them All Horse Rescue was conceived due to life changes: I got older. Riding my Harley and being around Horses were the happiest times of my life. Both are expensive hobbies, and one had to go. I chose horses. It was the funds from selling my Custom Road King that got the rescue going and on the journey to continue saving horses. I began rescuing horses in 2011 with my own funds and became 501(c)(3) in 2014."
The mission was simple: rescue neglected, starved, or unwanted horses to rehabilitate both physically and emotionally and find them forever homes. We aim to train the horses in our care to a level where they can be adopted and flourish in a new home, with new pasture pals or a dedicated owner. Saving horses one at a time!
Additionally, we offer many programs to the public and provide vital education regarding horses and their welfare: such as, Open Houses and Community Days, community service hours for high school students, internships for students, and community service hours for Sacramento County Sheriff's Dept.'s Alternative Sentencing Program for traffic violations. Volunteers are the backbone of making our horses trust and feel loved. Without the assistance of volunteers, we would not be as successful as we are in our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home unwanted horses. Horse lovers who donate to our cause are indispensable and we are grateful to those wonderful people that support our mission.
Our rescue has accepted horses from a variety of different circumstances: county animal controls prior to euthanasia, working farms that have failed due to owner's health, ranches that can no longer care for their animals or have closed down, and abandoned or surrendered horses. Our goal is to be there when horses need us.
