As a Full Circle of Life Horse Shelter our goal is to rescue, shelter, and protect as many horses as we can, no matter what stage of life they are in. Through our grant and assistance programs we are able to provide a safety net and help a larger number of horses across the nation in an effort to keep horses out of the slaughter pipeline.  

No horse deserves slaughter - America must do better!

Emergency Assistance

Emergency Assistance is available for vet bills from flooding related injuries, emergency feed, temporary boarding, etc. This program was set up to help horses affected by the flash flood in Tennessee on August 21st 2021.  We Can HELP!
