Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501 c3, volunteer based, animal welfare organization established in 1989 to ensure quality care and treatment of horses through rehabilitation, humane education and community outreach.
Since it's beginning in 1989, Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Inc. has been a place where children and adults have found enrichment, satisfaction, sadness and purpose through helping to provide care for unwanted, abused or neglected horses. Since it's inception, DEFHR has gone from a small non-profit sheltering only a few horses annually, to a full scale and well respected rescue and rehabilitation facility housing on average 50 – 60 horses at any one point in time. Its budget, and corresponding donations, has grown from $50,000 annually to over $600,000 over a 10 year period.
Over 500 adults and children volunteer their efforts in helping the Farm to achieve its mission. Equally as important in its successful growth has been Days End Farm's increased focus on humane education, both on the local and national levels. As Days End continues to grow, so does the need for adequate space all the horses and programs require. The current location, which served us well over the years, is now literally bursting at the seams, with every square inch in use.
Days End Farm Horse Rescue is a part of The National/ International Combined Federal Campaign, affiliated with the 2004 Animal Charities of America. Farm is also a part of Charitable Choices website and satisfies their 10 Accountability Standards. Days End Farm is very proactive in regards to donors and volunteers rights to privacy and knowledge of the internal workings of the farm. Please click here for our statement on donor's rights.
Besides the "Best in America" award that Days End Farm Horse Rescue has received, Days End has also received a 4-STAR rating by from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management. Less than a quarter of the thousands of charities that Charity Navigator has rated have received their 4-Star rating, indicating that Days End Farm Horse Rescue outperforms most charities in America in it's efforts to operate in the most fiscally way possible. This "exceptional" rating from Charity Navigator differentiates Days End Farm Horse Rescue from it's peers and proves it's worthy of the public's trust.
