Our mission is to improve the lives of equines by educating and helping owners, assisting law enforcement agencies, rehabilitating abused and neglected equines, and placing them into safe, permanent homes.
BEHS was formed in March 2005 by a group of horse enthusiasts who felt there was a need for a new rescue to help horses and other equines throughout Texas and Arkansas. The new organization was publicly announced on March 12th by President Jennifer Williams as an introduction to her talk entitled "How Rescues Help Unwanted Horses" at the American Quarter Horse Association's annual convention in St. Louis, MO.
The organization incorporated as a Texas Non-Profit Corporation on March 14, 2005 and then filed to do business as a foreign corporation in Arkansas on March 21, 2005. Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society filed for and received certification as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization in 2005.
