The Dorset Equine Rescue’s mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home abused, neglected, and slaughter-bound horses of all breeds and sizes. DER provides a safe, loving, and caring home, including all needed medical care, to every rescued horse. Once ready for their forever family, each horse is carefully placed in a pre-screened and qualified home.
The Dorset Equine Rescue strives to educate the community about all matters of horse care, health, and advocacy to continuously improve the long-honored and time-tested human-equine partnership.
Please schedule an appointment for a visit and we would be happy to meet you and introduce you to the horses. Thank you!
You can play an important role in protecting horses. If you witness horse cruelty, it is important to report the case to the appropriate authorities. If you are unable to care for your horse(s), please consider finding them a new home.
