Dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused, abandoned, neglected and unwanted equines since 2005. Currently there are 6,000 unwanted horses in Colorado alone. MVHR saves those it can, and is committed to reducing horse abuse/neglect through community outreach and educational programs.
"I cannot speak more highly of Mountain Valley Horse Rescue! Their team came and helped rescue 3 horses that were in need of a lot of rehabilitation due to having an elderly, widowed owner. This rescue was super respectful of the horses and of the owner and her wishes for the horses to go to a safe place where they would be loved. The rescue was scheduled and completed in a respectful time. They came very well prepared with all the necessary equipment and most importantly patience. Their communication was phenomenal and they are continuing to stay in touch with us to keep us updated. Sending us pics and stories with details of the horses’ new journeys have been so genuine. I love that they really love the animals and are so respectful!"
"I cannot begin to explain what this place has done for me and my family. Not only did I take home my bestest friend Breezie, but I’ve also taken home so much knowledge. This is a facility where not only can you count on the animals being extremely loved and cared for, but the staff, volunteers, and visitors as well. They show so much appreciation to anyone and everyone who shows their support and love. Thank you MVHR. For giving me a best friend. For the knowledge. And for everything else you’ve done for me and my family."
