Mountain Valley Horse Rescue is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing of abandoned, negelcted, and abused equines. We are committed to reducing the number of cases of horse abuse through community outreach and educational programs.
The creation of Mountain Valley Horse Rescue was inspired by the rescue of two starved and abandoned horses in November of 2004. A group of Eagle Valley horse enthusiasts recognized the need for a regional rescue organization. To fulfill that need, MVHR was formed in April 2005. In 2011, we doubled our capacity to accomodate up to ten horses at a time, and entered into a lease of a facility to house the organization.
In the fall of 2016, Mountain Valley Horse Rescue took an exciting step forward by purchasing a forever home in McCoy, CO.The 115-acre ranch along the Colorado River has allowed the Rescue to care for more horses; in the summer of 2017, there were 35 horses on property! In addition to funds necessary for the daily care of the horses - food, medicine, vet care - we are also fundraising to build additional facilities on the property, including a barn with an indoor arena, a caretaker residence, and hay stackyard. Naming opportunities are available!
