Colorado: Front Range Equine Rescue
Posted on Saturday, September 17 @ 13:39:22 CDT by donna

Horse Adoption and Rescue P.O. Box 38068
Colorado Springs, CO 80937-8068

Front Range Equine Rescue is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to stopping the abuse and neglect of horses. It is Front Range’s belief that ignorance is the main cause for equine abuse rather than outright cruelty, which also exists. A primary goal of Front Range Equine Rescue is to educate new, potential, and existing horse owners on basic horse care topics such as equine nutrition, first aid, farrier care, alternative therapies, and natural horsemanship techniques.

Front Range's rescue program provides direct care and rehabilitation of horses. While some horses are donated, many are obtained from livestock auctions. This is because Front Range Equine Rescue is not set up as a humane society which can investigate cases of horse abuse. Front Range is not a retirement home, but can help owners with ideas on how to find a "permanent, loving" home if they must give up their horse.

Established in 1997, Front Range Equine Rescue has assisted hundreds of horses either through direct rescue or by helping horse owners through FRER’s educational program. Horses are kept in private foster homes and under the Board of Directors care. Front Range currently has a 5 acre facility to use for quarantine purposes. Sponsorship of a horse helps to offset rehabilitation expenses. Fundraising events are held throughout the year to raise money needed for horse care expenses.

Once rehabilitated, the majority of horses are available for adoption to permanent, loving homes. Because of FRER’s pre-adoption site visit and subsequent follow up visits, horses must be adopted to homes within a 5 hour drive of Colorado Springs. Adoption rules and an application form are available upon request.

Front Range Equine Rescue has been featured in Parade Magazine, The Colorado Springs Gazette, Today's Horse Trader Magazine, Black Forest News, Horse Connection Magazine, Washington Post, Western Horseman, Horse Professional Magazine, and is the year 2001 agency winner of Rio Vista Product’s Hank Award for outstanding rescue work.
