Located in Stow, Massachusetts, Eye of the Storm is an equine rescue center dedicated to saving the lives of horses who have been abused, neglected or abandoned. Horses that come to this barn remain here for life, or may be placed in approved foster homes once they are completely rehabilitated. Eye of the Storm always retains custody of its horses, even when they are placed in foster homes.
The farm was founded by Nina Arbella, a long-time horse owner who was inspired by Stormy, her first and best equine friend. Nina and a small group of volunteers now devote many hours each day to helping, learning about and caring for several horses rescued from abandonment, abuse or a miserable trip to the slaughterhouse.
Eye of the Storm also has many "end of the line," young, unsound horses to whom we provide sanctuary for the rest of their lives.
Eye of the Storm received its final IRS determination in 2004 after a 5 year working period. We are very excited that we were designated 170(b)(1)(a)vi, a non profit organization for the prevention of cruelty to animals, under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
People have used horses for centuries, for work, war, sport and companionship. We owe our horses a fair and responsible partnership of good care and understanding, because their lives have essentially been given to us.
Unfortunately, Eye of the Storm isn't able to house or place all of the abused or neglected horses who need our help. But we can save a few -- and we can also provide information, advice and a network of support for horses and their owners who need to know how to care for horses with special needs. Through our newsletter, Internet resources, referrals and consultations, we hope to improve the lives of many old, neglected or unwanted horses.
Eye of the Storm is a non-profit corporation, registered with the IRS as a 170(b)(1)(a)vi, a non profit organization for the prevention of cruelty to animals, under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code.
