Colorado: Friends of Horses Rescue & Adoption

Friends of Horses Rescue & Adoption (FOHRAA) is a 501c3 nonprofit corporation dedicated to horse rescue, adoption and education based in metropolitan Denver, Colorado.   

With over 60 horses currently being cared for, FOHRAA is not a "typical" rescue.   A majority of our horses came from loving homes that were no longer able to care for them.   They're GREAT horses!  We place many foals and horses in adoptive, loving homes including PMU foals and retired thoroughbred racers.  We also work closely with Colorado State University's equestrian program, often finding good homes for retired program horses.

The Friends of Horses Rescue and Adoption  was started by Bill Stiffler after he received numerous telephone calls over the years from families looking for good homes for their horses.  After funding the operation himself in the past, he started the non-profit group Friends of Horses Rescue and Adoption Foundation (FOHRAA) in 2002.  FOHRAA rescues, rehabilitates and places into adoptive homes horses including PMU foals, retired racehorses, sound pleasure horses, companion horses and seniors. Most are grade type, although some are registered purebreds. Since formalizing FOHRAA, much of the rescue's work has focused on saving foals, many from PMU farms, from killer auctions, saving them from a brutal death at slaughterhouses where their meat is exported to Europe and Japan for human consumption.

Over the past decade a number of very good horses have met their fate by way of the slaughterhouse. FOHRAA gives an option to those individuals who might otherwise send their horses to killer markets. It also helps rescue racehorses and other horses at risk or that have been neglected. In the last year, FOHRAA has placed over 100 horses into adoptive homes.  Adoption fees vary from $750 to $3,000. On occasion we come across horses that have more value and will be adopted at their value.  Proceeds from the adoptions help fund the tremendous costs FOHRAA incurs to feed, vaccinate, house, vet and find homes for such a large number of horses.
