New England Equine Rescues
NEER was originally formed to answer a need within the equine community to network hard to place horses that were not able to find sanctuary in over crowded rescue organizations in New England. As an organization, the mission has expanded. Today, NEER actively rescues horses from a variety of situations, including owner surrenders, abuse and neglect situations, and horses at risk for slaughter. NEER provides sanctuary and rehabilitation in foster homes with the intention of adoption into new families as appropriate. NEER works closely with, and for, other traditional equine rescue organizations, assisting with fundraising efforts and equipment donations.
