We will never turn a horse away. We accept horses from Tennessee and throughout the United States. We will never turn a horse away because of its health, temperament, old age, sickness or any other reasons.

Donations are always appreciated, but if you can't afford it we understand.
Horse Plus Humane Society is an open admission shelter meaning that we will never turn a horse away. We understand that sometimes circumstances make it where an owner can no longer keep their horse. There are not many options for horse owners and a lot of owners are afraid that they will not be able to ensure their horse finds the right home. We will never turn a horse away no matter its health, behavior or medical problems. If a horse is in need of the Last Act of Kindness we also take care of everything that is involved with end-of-life services, as we are a full circle of life horse welfare organization. The horse's owner is responsible for transporting, or arranging transport of, the horse to our shelter.
We do not charge a surrender fee for horses being surrendered however donations are always appreciated.
Rescuing to Surrender
We know how devastating it is to see a free or cheap horse on the internet and know that the horse is in jeopardy of entering the slaughter pipeline. Through our Rescue to Surrender program you can become a horse rescuer without the burden of veterinarian and farrier care, sheltering or any other cost involved with after rescue care. As we are an open admission shelter this allows us to offer this program so others can become horse rescuers without the aftercare responsibility. We will take any horse no matter its behavior, training, health or age. Even if the horse is in need of the Last Act of Kindness we will take care of everything involved with end-of-life services for that horse as we are a full circle of life horse welfare organization. The rescuer is responsible for transporting, or arranging transport of, the horse to our shelter.
Keep our surrender fees free
Your support is what keeps our surrender fees free. Without support from people like you we would have to charge surrender fees for horses coming into our shelter. This could prevent horses from being surrendered. If a horse can no longer be kept by its owner it is in jeopardy of entering the slaughter pipeline.Give NOw
