St. Francis Horse Rescue and Retirement Farm, Inc. is a non-profit organization which provides a quality home for any horse, pony, donkey or mule in need of a safe place to stay, medical care, or a retirement home to live out their days with respect and loving attention. Adoptable animals will be placed in qualified homes only.
St. Francis Horse Rescue and Retirement Farm, Inc. became a “true” horse rescue in 2004 when we were recognized as a non-profit 501(c)(3) and also licensed by the State of Wisconsin. This (2004) was our official start. This is when we began to screen adopters and place horses in adoptive home but in reality, we started taking in horses in 1999 when we bought our farm here in Central Wisconsin and purchased a horse named “Manny” and subsequently got him the necessary surgery to save his life.
