Exciting News from The Dorset Equine Rescue !
Friends & supporters , we ’ re elated to share with you a pivotal moment in the history of The Dorset Equine Rescue . For nearly 12 years , we ’ ve been saving abused and neglected horses , interrupting the slaughter pipeline , supporting horse owners in crisis & partnering with law enforcement on animal welfare investigations and seizures throughout Vermont and beyond .
400 saved-lives later , after operating on just 5 acres of leased land ( and foster placements ), we have purchased land to develop a forever farm of our own ! In January , we closed on 178 acres of safe , secluded land which will sustain our growth , outcomes & legacy for generations to come .
A few factors aligned in a small window of time to make this marvel possible . First , we received a substantial gift from a private Trust , designated to spearhead this goal . Within a year , a chance connection was made for the off-market purchase of this property . Lastly - in response to this wild momentum - a small number of our key and longtime supporters came forward with enough added funding to get us to the finish line on time ! Our deepest , heartfelt gratitude goes out to our generous land campaign donors , not just for your fiscal support , but for your unwavering faith in our mission and vision . Your backing in this miracle moment has changed our work forever .
We ’ re still dazzled by this dream come true . At the same time , we ’ re grounded in the extensive work of planning & development that lies ahead . Over the next several months we ’ ll be fine-tuning a plan for the next big frontier : The
Sundance and Copper , two new rescue horses at the Dorset Equine Rescue who just arrived a week ago

In the meantime , you ’ ll find updates on our budding plans & avenues to offer early support at the new ‘ Legacy ’ page of our website . We invite you to share in the moment-to-moment journey with us via social media as we add “ Forever Farm Friday ” shares to our weekly connection lineup !
If you know the Dorset Equine Rescue already , you know that we ’ re visionary leaders in the field of equine rescue and to expect great things from us . If you don ’ t know us , come learn more about this exciting season of our growth at : dorsetequinerescue . org / legacy
