The Healing Barn 501c3 Non- Profit Organization was started in 1999 when our family was looking for a horse for 4-H and quickly added three to the family. Two of the horses we met while looking were in need of a loving forever home. It was then we started to realize how many horses were in need in our area.
We started The Healing Barn with intentions to educate and help equine owners to better care for their animals and while this is possible at times, there are cases we work closely with the local Humane Societies to remove the horses from their current situation. Once the horses are removed we work with veterinarians and natural supplements to improve the overall wellness of the animal. When possible these horses are placed into forever loving adoptive homes. In some cases, the horses have special needs that require additional daily care, therefore they stay with us to ensure their daily needs are met.
The Healing Barn operates solely on community support and our live events! We appreciate your generosity and support for our cause always. Know 100% of all donations are used directly for the care and housing of our rescued horses and donkeys.
