USERL operates in regions across NC, VA, IN, and KY. We are dedicated to the compassionate care of all equines. We believe that education is the longterm solution to the problem of equine neglect and abuse. We assist animal control agencies and work with local law enforcement agencies when necessary. USERL's unique adoption lease agreement ensures the safety of all USERL equines for the remainder of their lives.
We have a network of over 200 foster homes and have rescued, rehabilitated, and adopted over 1000 horses. Our work is never done, more homes are needed, there are always horses we are unable to rescue.
Our organization is run almost entirely by volunteers ( only 2 part-time employees) so nearly every cent raised is spent directly on the care of the horses. All donations are tax deductible and greatly appreciated.
