Wild Places Rescue is a year-round sanctuary for horses, mules, donkeys, goats, and dogs that have been abused, neglected, injured, or abandoned. Wild Places is also dedicated to promoting the welfare of animals through public education.
Wild Places is primarily a retirement facility and hospice for animals, focusing on special-needs horses, goats, and dogs. Our goal is to provide a high level of care and quality of life for each animal, and make them feel safe, loved, enriched, and as comfortable as possible. We generally accept animals that are out of options -- animals that have nowhere else to go. Currently at our facility, we have animals who are dealing with blindness, deafness, chronic diseases, chronic spinal injuries, severe arthritis, genetic/developmental defects, thyroid disorders, and extreme old age. Several of our animals require special diets and expensive medications, which we accommodate, regardless of the cost.
Wild Places is a 501c3 organization, and is run solely by volunteers. As a non-profit organization, all funds are based on personal and business contributions, grants, and fundraisers. With the current hay prices, which are exorbitant due to the drought and hay shortage, the average cost to shelter, feed, shoe, and provide veterinary care for a horse is around $2,600 per year (or even more for horses with medical conditions), so donations are always needed! Most of our animals are not available for adoption; however, if you are looking for a pasture-pal for your own animals, please email us to discuss.
