1-Day Open Door Shelter
No horse is refused at our 1-Day Open Door Shelters!
We hold 1-Day Open Door Shelters across the United States, thanks to funding by the Watershed Animal Fund and The Right Horse. The 1-Day Open Door Shelters give horse owners the opportunity to surrender their horse without any cost to them, and no questions asked. No horse will be refused, no matter its condition.

The 1-Day Open Door Shelter has 3 specific goals, each of which further our mission of reducing suffering of horses and other members of the equine family.
1: Providing a humane option for horse owners who can no longer keep them.
2: Help adoptable horses find their right homes.
3: Prevent needless suffering of horses that need euthanasia but their owners cannot afford the high cost of euthanasia and disposal.
All surrendered horses will be evaluated for quality of life and adoptability. Adoptable horses are placed into an adoption programs with an approved adoption partners.
