Hey y’all from the Texas Panhandle! I’m the Executive Administrator for Dove Creek Equine Rescue, the largest equine rescue in the Texas Panhandle area. DCER is a 501(c)3 non- profit, dedicated to making a difference in the unwanted horse population. Our goal is to eventually place horses in homes that are fitting to both horses and owners. We honor and value the horse/human bond and through our programs we offer various opportunities to nurture that bond.
Since our inception in September of 2012, we have re-homed 75 percent of the horses received while maintaining the other 25 percent that are not adoptable in our sancturary, thanks to the generosity of our supporters. Once horses are rehabilitated physically and mentally, those that will be rideable go into our training program, and are given time in training to establish a good foundation and develop their own skills. By only rehoming horses that we feel have had time to fully rehabilitate we ensure a successful adoption.
An average of 30 horses, and 14 other “barnyard” animals such as mini horses, donkeys, goats, and a sheep, at Dove Creek enjoy a canyon sanctuary of 500 acres of grassy plains where they roam in a “herd” environment, setting the stage for the continued healing of their minds and bodies.March 27, 2020 at 7:30 am #9679Robin Mason, GFASKeymaster
