Horse and Dog Rescue

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 save two lives at once by rescuing unwanted horses and dogs and retraining them for service and animal assisted programs.

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 and people with PTSD, anxiety, Trauma and Autism.

We also offer educational programs for schools and libraries and training sessions for professionals interested in running animal assisted programs to their practices.

These dogs will have been evaluated for temperament, socialized with dogs and people, know basic obedience, basic tasks and be started on public access training.
