Buy Out Program
Help horses before they end up at auctions
We have a new program we would like to try out! Some of our partners are already doing what’s called a “Buy Out Program,” which offers owners a monetary incentive to surrender their horse, instead of taking them to auction where they could disappear into the slaughter pipeline.
We need monthly supporters in order to launch this project. Can we count on you for monthly support for the Buy Out Program?
Watch our weekly episodes on your Smart TV!
We have two TV shows that you will love. In Horse Rescue Heroes we mentor other organizations, helping them learn better shelter management and fundraising skills. Horse Shelter Heroes follows the work our organization does on a weekly basis. You'll love following the horses as we rescue them and watching them find amazing new homes. Our episodes are available on Amazon Prime Video, EQUUS Television and YouTube.
Full circle of life
Horse Plus Humane Society is a Full Circle of Life Horse Shelter and will never turn animals away. Having compassion for all horses and other animals, no matter what stage of life they are in, is extremely important. From their beginning to their end, horses find safety, love, compassion and peace at Horse Plus Humane Society.
Every year we help hundreds of horses transition from a rough place in their life to a new start. Our wonderful team of veterinarians and horse trainers work with the horses to help them become happy, healthy and adoptable.

Helping Horses Across the World
HPHS provides grants and financial assistance to private horse owners and non profit horse welfare organizations as a safety net to protect horses. These grant programs include Mentoring, Auction Rescue. Last Act of Kindness Assistance and Castration Assistance, Emergency Funding and Urgent Needs.
Helping Horse Owners with Surrenders
Horse Plus Humane Society accepts owner surrenders regardless of the horse's condition, temperament or medical issues and at no cost to the horse's owner.
Adopting Horses into Loving Homes
Horse Plus Humane Society has a goal of adoption or adoption placement for every horse that comes into the organization. Finding the right home for each horse or providing grant assistance to other adoption agencies to help our horses find homes in different regions.
Compassion for All Horses
While some organizations focus on only taking in the most adoptable horses they can find, HPHS will rescue horses even if they need the Last Act of Kindness because every horse deserves love and kindness until the very end.
Improving the Lives of All Horses
Horse Plus Humane Society is there for horses regardless of who they are or what they've been through. We don't discriminate against horses just because they don't fit into a criteria that would make them adoptable. Our goal is to help as many horses as possible at our facility and through our national programs.
The Horses Need YOU!
Thousands of horses are exported out of the United States and slaughtered every year. Horses have no voice, they need you because horses in jeopardy have no hope. Join us with your support and become a Horse's Hero, together we will make a difference, together we can save horses from a horrific fate!Give NOw
