Northwest Equine Stewardship Center (NWESC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing professional level rehabilitative care (veterinary, hoof care, training) to rescue horses.
Founded in 2008, Northwest Equine Stewardship Center works together with local equine rescue organizations to help neglected and abused horses get the care they need and find forever homes.
NWESC is different because we don’t take in and adopt out horses directly. Instead we work with other local horse rescue organizations that take in and adopt out rescue horses so that NWESC can focus on the professional level care for the horses that the other organizations take in. This networking makes NWESC unique by allowing them to help numerous horses along with a wide range of horse rescue organizations.
Beyond rescue horse rehabilitation, NWESC is also committed to building programs that provide educational and therapeutic opportunities for people and promotes the prevention of unwanted horses and neglect. For this reason NWESC offers a comprehensive educational program along with on-going events and clinics as well as providing unique, hands-on learning opportunities for veterinary and vet tech / assistant students in which students are able to gain real-life experience with horses in need - a win-win situation!
NWESC strives to bring the horse community together and form a network of concerned stewards working cohesively toward a solution to the problem of animal abuse and neglect.
