We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Safe Haven Horse Rescue has changed the lives of many neglected and abused horses and will continue to change many lives with the help of those who care. We can save so many lives through hope, love, and hard work. We want people to know that they CAN make a difference no matter how little they give. Whether you are young or just young at heart, there are opportunities for everyone to join in and expand their hearts and lives while helping these precious, helpless horses.

Safe Haven Horse Rescue is located in Northern California in the beautiful town of Cottonwood which is about 16 miles south of Redding. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operating solely by the hard working hands of volunteers who are dedicated to the care of abused and neglected horses.  There are numerous horses that are living a life of abuse and neglect.  Here at Safe Haven, our goal is to offer these broken creatures another chance at a happy, healthy life full of love and joy. While we have many wonderful hopes and dreams for Safe Haven and the horses that call it home, we have limited funds and space.  Being a non-profit, no kill, organization, these horses rely purely on the kindness and generosity of equine lovers through volunteering your time, donations, adoptions and fundraisers. We invite you to come and meet the horses of Safe Haven Horse Rescue.

Celebrating 21 years of Rescue!

2016 brings the celebration of 21 years of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming horses as well as a bright future at our new facility!! Since moving to the new ranch, we've had great success in finding many wonderful homes for so many of the rescued horses, like River pictured above!!
River arrived to Safe Haven very frightened after being rescued from slaughter at the kill pens in Fallon, Nevada. She came to us shaggy, thin and scared. It took quite a bit of time, patience and love from the volunteers at Safe Haven to began to earn some trust from River!
Her next big break was when Lesley Deutsch of Blue Fountain Farm chose her to be a part of the "Rescue Project" that she is involved with through Cowboy Dressage. Cowboy Dressage had reached out to Safe Haven and asked us to come in as their Rescue of Choice. They also created the Rescue Project where they would choose horses to go into their training program at no change to the rescue. They key to the rescue project was to help get the horses ready to find the perfect home!!
Lesley Deutsch wrote a blog that followed River's Journey that is heartwarming!!  You can read and follow the full story... including the happy ending of her finding her new, forever home at http://www.riversjourneybff.blogspot.com
River even made the December 2015 cover of Equine Wellness Magazine!!! We want to thank them for the wonderful opportunity they gave us to feature Safe Haven in their top notch magazine!!
