Our Mission Statement:
HEART of Tucson is a non-profit, pro-horse equine rescue organization run entirely by volunteers. Our mission is two-fold. HEART of Tucson rescues horses of all breeds that are in urgent need of care. We rescue horses that perhaps have been neglected, abandoned or abused. Secondly, our mission is to instruct and raise awareness of the general public about what it takes to own a horse including feeding, grooming, tack, training, boarding, veterinary care and all costs associated with owning a horse. HEART of Tucson's goal is to rehabilitate rescued horses and then find suitable homes for these equines. We provide the food, the supplements, farrier service, veterinary care, training, love and kindness, all in a safe haven. By educating the public of horse ownership through on-site, hands-on seminars and workshops, HEART of Tucson's goal is to stop the cycle of abuse and neglect that potentially could occur to these animals. We are pro-active and passionate about rescuing horses that might otherwise end up at auction houses and perhaps go to inhumane slaughter houses in Mexico.
