Our mission is to stop the slaughter of horses and to end suffering of abused and neglected horses. We adopt once unwanted horses into loving forever homes.
HPHS was founded by a 19 year old young lady in 2003. Tawnee grew up with horses and other farm animals and as she grew a strong love for these animals grew as well.
HPHS was founded in 2003 and since those early days over 4,000 horses have been sheltered at our shelters across the United States.

California State Recognition
One of the State Senator’s wanted to recognize our good work for the horses in the state of California. We were presented with the award in the California State Senate Chamber. It was such an honor to be recognized! All of our staff and volunteers work so hard day after day caring for the hundreds of horses that come through our shelter every year.
