Welcome to Refuge RR

Willy and Mikey Throughout history man has measured a horse's worth by what the horse could do for man. Horses have provided transport, done hard labor, carried soldiers into battle, performed as athletes and entertainers and have provided pleasure to millions. Somewhere along the way man has forgotten the true value of the horse…

As we watch our horses just being horses, we can truly appreciate their intrinsic value. They are awesome creatures to behold. We are often awestruck by their bravery and their loyalty to each other and we are inspired daily by their intelligence, curiosity and playfulness.

We feel we are indebted to these magnificent beings. So, on behalf of mankind, Refuge RR is giving back that which should never have been taken away, their freedom, and providing them with the protection that is owed to them.

Our animals depend on you throughout the year to have enough food so they don't go hungry and this is also true in this time of celebration. With winter already here, we are in need of extra supplies and feed for the cold months ahead. Our monthly costs of feeding everyone is close to 12K. If you love our work and what we do, please help us to keep doing it by giving whatever you can. In addition, they need their shelters to be improved to protect them from weather elements and cold winter winds.

Listen to your heart and be generous. Donate by clicking the button "CanadaHelps" at the top of the page (and print your receipt right away) or by sending a check or money order to the address at the bottom of the page (a receipt will be sent to you beginning of 2015).

Thank you on behalf of the over 250 animals who call RR home and for having their wellbeing at heart.
