WCHS was founded in 1985 with the dream of preventing and eliminating animal suffering. Over the years, we have worked towards achieving that dream by operating a shelter that is staffed from 8am to 10pm for taking in unwanted or stray animals. We never turn an animal in need away.
Luckily, through the dedicated efforts of our volunteers, we are able to extend this vital service to equines (horses, donkeys and mules) in need, as well. Our shelter farm is equipped to take in any equine in need of help, and to place those animals in loving new homes whenever possible. We will never turn any equine in need away, and we do not charge a fee for taking an unwanted equine. The Equine Rescue Program operates within the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) care guidelines.
The cost of caring for these animals is higher than for most small animals so donations are always needed. Appointments are needed for surrendering and looking at our equines.
