Sponsor a Horse

Written by

Thankyou for your enquiry regarding a Horse Welfare Inc rescue horse. We really appreciate your commitment to supporting these horses in need. As you are aware this is not an easy task and can require considerable input of time, effort and expense. You can help by donating your time, services or money (any little bit can help). Alternatively you could adopt your own rescue horse. Should you decide to do this there are several costs you should be aware of.

The face of Hopelessness

Written by


This is not one specific story, but one general story that is happening all over this country. These little guys, beautiful and proud, are the faces of despair. Sadly, there are as many young horses (very young) that make it to the dogger yards as there are old horses. These babies, were born at the doggers. Young horses with no care early in their development will not meet the appropriate growth or nutritional intake required for a happy healthy life. In this case, a deal was struck and the owners of yards were happy to sell these foals (and their mothers) to loving homes with a future. What about tomorrow……

HWI - Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation

Written by

Horse Welfare Inc has been involved in the rescue and rehabilitation of horses since 1992. Formalisation of the group in 2009 led to ATO approval as a Deductible Gift Recipient and Tax Concession Charity. We have also obtained OLGR approval to perform charity fundraisers. Through the development of this site we aim to raise the awareness of the plight of horses in need in this country. 

We operate out of the Hunter Valley in NSW. However, our locations page is ever growing and will link you to groups doing Horse Rescue in your area. You can help these people by:

  • Reporting a horse in need
  • Volunteering your services
  • Becoming a Member
  • Donating funds or much needed equipment
  • Organising a fundraiser in your area
  • Adopting or sponsoring a horse

Please take the time to read through our site and some of the stories.

Thankyou for visiting….
