California: Redwings Horse Sanctuary

Redwings Horse Sanctuary began in May 1991 as a non-profit, 501 (c) (3) organization located in Carmel, California.

Redwings' initial goal was to end the abuse, neglect, and slaughter of all equines including horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, and burros through rescue and foster care. To achieve this goal, Redwings representatives began visiting auctions and abusive equine homes, rescuing as many endangered animals as possible.

In its first year alone, Redwings removed 15 equines from abusive and/or life-threatening situations. Redwings staff then rehabilitated the equines and matched them with carefully screened foster homes.

In addition to its rescue and rehabilitation efforts, Redwings also focused on addressing the various educational, financial, and other factors behind equine neglect. The organization initiated several programs centered around this goal, including an equine education program for new owners, an equine medical assistance program for owners with low-incomes, and a stray equine pick-up program in partnership with the Monterey County Sheriff's Department.

Although these efforts allowed the organization to save many equines, Redwings realized that placing some abused equines in foster care was not a solution. A number of the rescued animals had experienced such serious physical and psychological damage that complete rehabilitation was not possible. In the fall of 1992, Redwings broadened its scope to include permanent shelter for those equines, ensuring them a secure and life-long home at the Sanctuary.
