Mission Statement

    Hope‘s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation located in central Virginia. We are an all breed rescue working to save equines from a variety of situations including, but not limited to: abuse, abandonment, neglect, slaughter or whose owners can no longer care for them. We provide equine rescue regardless of age or disability. We believe in alleviating an equine’s suffering when every other reasonable option has been exhausted, under the advice and care of a veterinarian, by humane euthanasia. We strive to give equines a second chance at life and being loved. These equines will be rehabilitated and placed in adoptive homes whenever possible.  

    We support responsible use of working and pleasure horses, ponies, donkeys and mules.  We are dedicated to working with our future horse owner generation, teaching them responsible riding and proper horse care.

​​We are getting calls regularly about horses needing help.  It is very difficult to say no, but we have lots of expenses such as hay, feed, and vet care for the horses that we currently have and cannot take in any more without help from people like you. 

Please consider giving yourself a wonderful gift and send a donation to support these deserving animals.  Each horse has expenses between $50 and $100 a month.  What could be better than knowing that you helped one of these sweet horses (and ponies) have a happy, safe life?
