Equine Rescue Center

Equine Wellness will donate 25% of each subscription purchased using promo code EWA188 to the Equine Rescue Center & Sanctuary.

Location: Paicines, CA

Year established: 2009

Staff/volunteers/foster homes: Two staff, 17 volunteers (including board members), and six foster homes.

Types of animals they work with: “We rescue horses, donkeys, ponies and mules from auctions and intake from animal control,” says Monica Hardeman, president and founder.

Fundraising targets: “ERC is in need of shelters to protect our animals from the sun and rain, as well as a hay barn and arena.”

Favorite rescue story: “We rescued ten emaciated horses from Morgan Hill, California, on September 24, 2014. All the horses had a body score of 1-2. After two months at ERC, all have gained 100 to 150 pounds. Many are being adopted and fostered. They were severely neglected, and now they have a second chance at a real life where they can be appreciated and cared for properly.”
