Horse and Dog Rescue

.We have found a farm!

   We have moved into our new home in Sunderland, Ma! We are now in the process of putting up fencing, run in sheds and a training building so we can bring our rescued horses home. This little farm will allow us to run our programs on a regular basis and keep all of our therapy animals in one location!

Building and Fencing Day!

 Do you have some spare time to help get the farm fenced and training building built? We will be having a series of days to get things rolling so we can have turn outs and paddocks for the horses and a multi purpose building to train in. 

The first date will be Mon. April 30th. 3pm The run in sheds and some of the panels will hopefully be arriving. 

  Next day will be May 14th and May 17th 11am. We will be fencing in the fields. 

  Contact us via phone or email if you would like to be a part of these fun building days! Pizza, drinks and a gift for all who help!
