North Carolina: Horse Protection Society of North Carolina
Posted on Saturday, September 17 @ 17:22:28 CDT by donna

Horse Adoption and Rescue 2135 Miller Road
China Grove, NC 28023

Our Mission Statement

Mission: It is the mission of the Horse Protection Society of North Carolina Inc. to make the world a better place for horses through education, rescue, and rehabilitation. HPS provides a sanctuary of last resort for unwanted, neglected, and abused equine.

Who We Are

Founded in 1991 by Joan B. Benson and incorporated in 1999, we continue to reach out and to grow. HPS is a fully incorporated 501(c)3, approved by the Internal Revenue Service as a nonprofit organization.

The Horse Protection Society maintains the only equine sanctuary in North Carolina that provides permanent retirement care for abused and neglected equine. The sanctuary is available for people who can no long afford to care for their equine. Rocking Horse Ranch has housed as many as 40 horses. The need is so great that plans will have to be made to find a larger facility and funds raised for the purchase.

HPS has trained investigators to perform on-going abuse and neglect investigations with the goal of educating the owner in the proper care of their horses. We only prosecute abuse cases when absolutely necessary. When the owners are not interested in the humane care of their horse, we offer to take the horse and rehabilitate them.

HPS is still recovering financially from an equine rescue and subsequent prosecution in January 1999 of Carole Lewis, a a breeder of American Saddlebreds, who has been investigated in several states. It is one of the few equine abuse cases where an owner lost all of their horses. HPS has placed them in loving homes except the ones owned by other people. There was a herd of 29 starved and neglected horses.
