Mission Statement

Hope’s Legacy Equine Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation located in central Virginia. We are an all-breed rescue working to save equines from a variety of situations including, but not limited to: abuse, abandonment, neglect, slaughter or whose owners can no longer care for them. We provide equine rescue regardless of age or disability. We believe in alleviating an equine’s suffering when every other reasonable option has been exhausted, under the advice and care of a veterinarian, by humane euthanasia. We strive to give equines a second chance at life and being loved. These equines will be rehabilitated and placed in adoptive homes whenever possible.

We support responsible use of working and pleasure horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. We are dedicated to working with our future horse owner generation, teaching them responsible riding and proper horse care.

Title:Securing a Future for Hope's Legacy
Description:Hope's Legacy has operated as a foster based rescue with one small leased farm for the past 8 years. With a couple of large seizures in the past couple of years it has become clear that to secure and grow the future for Hope's Legacy we need our own property. About a year ago we were approached by a family interested in having the rescue purchase some property they were going to be selling soon. They offered Hope's Legacy an amazing purchase price on the property (172.2 acres for $680,000) and we are now in the process of raising that money! The funds over and above the $680,000 will go towards fencing and building a barn.
