Welcome

Horse Welfare Inc is a registered tax concession charity and deductible gift recipient with fundraising approval from the OLGR. ABN 46 935 608 276, CFN 21430. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, re-educate and rehouse horses in need. We are located in Glen Oak in the Hunter Valley in NSW.

There are many reasons a horse may find its way to us. Some are rescued from doggers yards on their last chance ticket. Others come from homes where their owners were simply not educated appropriately in the care or management of horses. Or, deceased estates with no other options. And sadly, some do come from backgrounds of complete neglect.

You can donate to us via the paypal link on the right of the page or direct deposit to BSB 650 000 Account 989107706 Horse Welfare Inc. Postal address is P.O. Box 92 Clarence Town NSW 2321. The President Jo Briggs can be contacted directly on 0418682571.

Adoptions

When the horses are ready to be re-housed they will be listed on this page. There are several conditions to our adoption contract that you need to be aware of.

1. No Horse Welfare Inc horse can be bred from

2. The horse cannot be onsold at any time and must be returned to Horse Welfare Inc if no longer suitable or required.

3. You are legally responsible for providing appropriate veterinary care and horse husbandry. 

4. You should own your own property or have a long term lease (with references).

5. A property inspection will be arranged.

6. Regular checks on the horse will be conducted.

7. Should 2 warnings of inappropriate care or management be required Horse Welfare Inc will remove the horse. 

8. Any adoption is considered seriously with the best interests of the horse at the top of the list. We endeavour to make the best possible match so the horse will never need to come back. 

9. As is the case with many rescue mares. There is a possibility of pregnancy. The adoptive family will have the option (if appropriate facilities exist) of retaining any resulting foal or returning it to Horse Welfare Inc.

Sponsor a Horse

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.

Education

Education is vital to effective horse ownership. General horse care, handling, management and nutrition are of the utmost importance. On this page we have provided some articles developed by a range of experts in the equine field. We hope that you find them to be as valuable as we do. In addition Horse Welfare Inc have commenced their own training courses which will be listed here.
