Basic Guidelines

Basic Guidelines for Operating an Equine Rescue or Retirement Facility

The Animal Welfare Institute and The Humane Society of the United States have partnered to publish a resource titled “Basic Guidelines for Operating an Equine Rescue or Retirement Facility.” The guidelines offer practical advice for anyone operating, or interested in starting up, an equine rescue or retirement facility. Developed on the premise that high quality equine management need not be restrictively expensive, the guidelines are a valuable management resource for those involved in equine rescue and rehabilitation. By making every effort to adhere to these standards, facilities can enrich their day-to-day operations while demonstrating to the public that the equine rescue community takes very seriously its responsibility to provide quality care to its animals.

 

Register for Voluntary Compliance with the AWI/HSUS Guidelines

The Homes for Horses Coalition is actively promoting use of the “Basic Guidelines for Operating an Equine Rescue or Retirement Facility” by the equine rescue community. If you operate an equine rescue organization in compliance with these guidelines please consider registering for voluntary compliance by clicking here.

Rescues Currently in Voluntary Compliance with AWI/HSUS Standards

The following organizations have signed a statement that they are in voluntary compliance with the AWI/HSUS “Basic Guidelines for Operating an Equine Rescue or Retirement Facility.” While we make every effort to ensure that the organizations are in good standing, their listing here is not a legal guarantee of compliance with said standards or an endorsement by the Homes for Horses Coalition, Animal Welfare Institute, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or The Humane Society of the United States.  Individuals wishing to make donations or otherwise interface with the organizations listed here should be aware of this and make additional enquiries about the facility’s operations if necessary.The Homes for Horses Coalition believes that registration with the I.R.S. as a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 organization brings an added level of credibility and transparency to equine rescue facilities.  As such, this list shows whether or not an organization has received such status from the I.R.S.  Non-US based organizations are not eligible for 501(c)3 status but are encouraged to file for the equivalent in their respective countries.
