For Love of Horses:
Organization: Equine Rescue of Aiken
Their mission: To care for horses who have suffered abuse, neglect and abandonment, and rehabilitate them physically and psychologically. Many are former racehorses or “family pets” deprived of proper care and diet, often due to the financial challenges of horse ownership.
What you can do: There are many opportunities for volunteers to aid in the rehabilitation process by assisting with daily feeding, walking, grooming and socialization. Once the horses are ready, the rescue places them in the adoption program with the hope of finding “forever homes” for them.
Where: Equine Rescue of Aiken is ensconced among 80 acres of rolling pastures at Haven Hills Farm, located at 532 Glenwood Dr. in Aiken.
