Yes Bugg Us!

Happy Home for Bugg!

Bugg was a young Quarter Horse type colt who was literally on death's door. He was already in a state of starvation when he was left in a pasture on a very hot humid July day. He couldn't find the creek to hydrate himself and was at the staggering point when we brought him to the rescue farm that evening. 
Bugg was dehydrated, covered with rain rot and nearly dead.

Bugg gets love from all the volunteers at the rescue farm. 

Look where this lucky Bugg is living today. 
Bugg is living so splendidly now!

His new Mom, Lisa, loves him so much! He will now enjoy life and never go without food, water, good acre or love.

Bugg  was gelded by Dr Kerrie Porter last week and he is recovering from that surgery very well. He has good nutrition now so he can grow to his full capacity and be the best trail horse and best friend forever. He is a very lucky guy. 
Thank you to everyone involved in his recovery and care.

Bugg won the Love Lottery for sure!

We are Rescue! Thank you for your continued support, prayers and time you all dedicate to the horses!

Happy Days Ahead for Horses and Humans!

SaveTheHorses has always claimed to have the Best volunteers! It is very true. Three families who have volunteered, adopted and sponsored horses and helped with all kinds of things here at the farm just gave us some exciting news! The Bradley family, the Lee family and the Pate family started a non profit corporation as a fundraising organization, A Stable Solution, to help the Horse Rescue and the Barn Buddy Program. This partnership will help these programs flourish and grow to help many more horses and foster/adopted children find peace through horses. We are looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship and change the part of the world we can together. Thank you all for your kindness.

The Horse Rescue, Relief and Retirement Fund ( has struggled for 15 years (established in 1998) but has always managed to survive, thanks to your generosity and Cherokee Feed who lets us run up an enormous bill and pay it continually, to our hay source, Curtis Farm, and to our vets, Equine Medical Associates, Georgia Equine Veterinary Services, KLMarcella and FoxDale Equine who also give us great service and patiently wait for us to pay. Thank you all. 

The future now will to provide a better service to Horses and humans. We are a Horse Rescue, People Rescue.

We have wonderful volunteers who put in over 20,000+ hours each year to do the dirty work, the fun  work, the sometimes sad work and the rewarding work to save the horses. Rain or shine, they come to give of themselves and their precious time. 

Volunteer of all ages come and help.

 Our Barn Buddy Program is off and running and will grow faster than we dreamed, thanks to Rebecca Miller who is running the program. The Barn Buddy Program is a unique program that partners foster/adopted children with attachment and trust issues with horses who have been neglected and abused. 

Memories made.

The volunteers are Super Heroes too!
Love shared!

We also have a Pink Horse Shoe Fund for horses with cancer.
