445106 2016 marks the 10 year anniversary of American Horse Adoption, a 501c3 nonprofit operated by Saddlebred Rescue which works to adopt horses to homes across the country. Saddlebred Rescue is a United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) awarded program and a verified member of the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).

10 rescue horses currently need homes this holiday season. Many of the rescues have been at the rehab for an extended period of time. Saddlebred Rescue has a successful evaluation and matching program for its adoption program, and each horse that can be placed allows for the rescue to save more horses from slaughter.

Please contact the rescue at or the adoption hotline at 908-605-6032 to learn more about how you can help find homes for all of these horses during this holiday season.

“We have rescued and saved over 1,000 horses to date and have had great success in our adoption program,” notes Nealia McCracken, volunteer and head of rescue operations.

Thanks to the E.L. and Thelma Gaylord Foundation’s Matching Grant and all of our donors and supporters over the years we have been able to get the job done. Each horse gets individual attention and the rescue has developed an effective evaluation and placement system
