About BEAR VALLEY RESCUE
We save neglected, abandoned, unwanted or distressed horses and find them new loving homes. Check out our website - www.bearvalleyab.org - to see all the wonderful horses we have helped and are currently helping!
We also help people who have to surrender their animals due to a dire change in their personal circumstances: death, divorce, domestic abuse and financial hardship force people into very limited choices in trying to find a home for their horse, especially if it is older or unsound. Other than selling the animal quickly at auction, where it will most likely go for slaughter, euthanizing their horse can be the only alternative. Most certainly for those facing these difficulties, being able to give their horse to the Rescue is a big weight off their shoulders; they know the horse will be well looked after and, where possible, placed into a suitable permanent home.
In addition, Bear Valley Rescue provides sanctuary to other animals such as poultry, goats, pigs and cows.
