Our Mission

Our mission at St. Jude Horse Rescue is to rescue horses by saving them from cruelty, neglect, and inhumane slaughter.  We strive to rehabilitate them and provide them with the much needed attention, nutritional support and care they deserve.


Why rescue?

  • Create an equine-assisted therapeutic program that individuals can heal and benefit from.
  • Collaborate with other professionals and rescues to provide awareness about equine needs and owner responsibility.
  • Develop a reliable volunteer program that can also help with fundraising and promotional events.

​​​Our vision is not only to help horses but also to help people with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges through Equine Assisted Activities and Therapy.  Conducted by caring, credentialed professionals, protecting both the physical and emotional safety of all participants.


Our Vision

Our Goals

"Each year, more than 100,000 American horses- working, racing, companion horses and even children's ponies- are inhumanely transported long distances in cramped trailers, without food, water, or rest.  They they are brutally slaughtered and their meat is shipped overseas for human consumption.  The majority of these horses are young, healthy animals who could have led productive lives with loving owners if they'd been given the chance."

​​Engaging with horses provides many therapeutic properties that help individuals gain self-confidence and self-reliance.

  •  ADHD
