Neglected by their owner, Captain and Anna were rescued and brought back to health at the Duchess Sanctuary in Oakland, Oregon a Fund for Animals facility. The Fund is an affiliate of The Humane Society of the United States. Many weeks of care involving careful feeding, farrier work, veterinary attention, and other therapy transformed them into shiny, happy, healthy horses. Duchess Sanctuary staff and volunteers poured their hearts into their rehabilitation and the results have been worth all of the efforts. These two horses will never go hungry again, and have become part of the permanent herd at the sanctuary. Joining more than 190 other equines rescued from slaughter, starvation, neglect, abandonment, and the pharmaceutical industry, they will live out their lives in safety on 1,120 acres of horse haven.
Horses both domestic and wild are still in peril in the United States. The Fund for Animals rescues equines around the country and gives them new lives at our sanctuaries and adoption center.
You can help a rescued horse. Rehabilitation can be costly. $10 provides food, medicine, and care for one recovering horse for one day.
The Fund for Animals, one of the largest, most active and successful organizations working for the cause of animals, operates four direct care centers, including world-famous Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.
