The Horse Shelter was founded in 2000, is located in Cerrillos, NM on 300+ acres of beautiful high desert country, about 20 miles south of Santa Fe.The mission of The Horse Shelter is to serve as a sanctuary for New Mexico’s abandoned, abused and neglected horses. Rescued horses are rehabilitated and adopted out whenever possible to homes that support their well-being and future long-term care.Caring for between 70 and 80 horses in residence at any time, the organization continually needs support to feed, rehabilitate, train and find adoptive homes for the rescued horses. The more horses adopted into new homes, the more The Horse Shelter can rescue!
