Mississippihorses.org is an online community dedicated to assisting horse rescue organizations and law enforcement agencies across our state in rehabilitating and finding homes for abused and abandoned horses. We provide information to horse owners so they can make an educated choice for their horses when they are no longer able to keep them. Our network includes volunteers from the Humane Society, veterinarians and their assistants, horse rescue organizations, trainers, riders and horse lovers of all kinds. From retirees to middle school students, we all share one thing - a love for these magnificent animals. The purpose and mission of our web site is to assist equine rescue organizations in their efforts to find homes for their horses and to bring awareness to the problems and issues facing horses in our state. 

 

   
   

 

Special Events & Projects

   

 
**Urgent** The remaining horses from the Copiah County horse case are in need. There are 501C3 organizations willing to help but can not due to the extensive rehab and quarantine that will be needed prior to them being fostered and adopted into new homes. If you would like to help and can provide a place to quarantine them, sponsor a horse or donate, please go to Hope for Copiah County Horses or call us at 6012018522. Thank you.
Rankin County Food Drive Event

Just wanted to take a moment and say thank you to the Rankin County Co-op for sponsoring the Food drive and adoption event raising $3,187.45 to go towards our feed bill! Just to let everyone know you will be able to donate to our feed account at any time by calling or stopping by the Rankin Co. Co-op. Visit their Facebook page and tell them thanks for caring about the horses!



We cry over the senseless pain and suffering this sweet foal endured at the hands of cruel and neglectful owners the entirety of her short little life. We cry even harder because she fought so valiantly to live, but most of all, we cry for the beautiful, sweet mare that she never had the chance to become. Please visit her album, For the Love of Lily Rose.

 



It is amazing to see the difference in the horses from when they enter the rescue system until the day they are adopted. Thanks to Nutrena for sponsoring our horse rescue calendar and for making the great products that we use to rehabilitate them. We share their stories so you too can appreciate where they came from to where they are today!

Thanks to WJTV for featuring us during their What Works segment! We hope to bring awareness to the problem of people owning horses without having the knowledge to care for them. To view video of the news story please click here.








We've started a campaign called Ten reasons to donate to help people better understand how our organization works and how we are able to provide care to abused and neglected horses. We realize it's lengthy but it's hard to say in a few sentences what all is involved in our day to day operations. Thank you for taking the time to read about us and caring about our horses.





Mississippi Roads did an interview with the Billingsleys on how they

became involved in saving nurse mare foals and working to find

homes to save as many as possible. To learn more about the nurse mare industry and about adopting a foal you can go to their page. Read more.
