A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
Welcome to Western Montana
Equine Rescue & Rehab
Our organization opened in September of 2008 in
Corvallis to address the needs of in-crisis horses in western Montana. The
operation is based at the residence of the founder, though we have utilized,
and still do, generous foster caregivers. From the moment an equine arrives,
we tailor each horse's rehabilitation program to his/her needs. Each horse
receives specialized nutrition, veterinary care, training and hoof care.
Our organization has an adoption program to
place our residents once they are rehabilitated. Many go on to become trusted
saddle horses and others will live out their lives as pasture
companions. Regardless of their limitations or potential, all equines who
enter our gate find love, respect and care here.
Chloe: 9 yr old
grade mare, 14.3 hh. This girl's last home was a year with inconsistent
food, neglected hoof care and basic needs. The home before that was as a
brood mare, so as far as we know, she has not been started under
saddle. In the 10 days we have had them, she is starting to trust
humans. Chloe is very calm, stands quietly tied, takes a minute for her
to "want" to be caught. I held her for the farrier and we took our time.
She was good (not perfect) but tried hard, so we had a good session.
Teeth floated, vaccinated, wormed and chiropractor within the past 3
weeks. She is a very good girl. She is headed to training in two weeks
unless you would like to adopt her prior OR sponsor her training. Please
consider contacting us at
Adoption fee $350

retired from riding and no longer in need of your trailer? We are

FOSTER HOMES NEEDED: If you
would like to help us help a horse, on a temporary basis, we are seeking
10 foster homes in our LOCAL area, or within 250 miles of the Bitterroot
Valley of western Montana. You might be needed for one or more horses,
for two days or up to a maximum of three months. All needs are provided
unless you are in a position to provide something. Safe fencing (no
barbed wire), shelter, dry lot and/or pasture (depending on the needs of
the horse and time of year), time and attention are a must. Foster
information can be found on our website under the ADOPT/FOSTER page.
