.We have found a farm!

   We have found a home that we are in the process of buying! If all goes well we will be moving in at the end of January. This little farm will allow us to run our programs on a regular basis and keep all of our therapy animals in one location! Stay tuned for more info. We will be having a volunteer build day to put up fencing and run in sheds for the horses and of course an open house! If you would like to help please contact us!

Heroes, Horses and Hounds is a 501c3, non-profit. We are dedicated to improving our communities by helping the people and animals in them. Our mission is to rescue unwanted horses and dogs and retrain them for service. Service animals are then placed with a person in need or used in an animal assisted therapy program.

 By offering a wide variety of programs and classes we are able to reach a large number of people in need.  Our classes and programs are designed to help Veterans, Kids at risk, People recovering from strokes and using prosthetics, inmates, and people with PTSD and Autism. We also offer educational programs for schools and libraries and visits to veteran and senior centers.
