As is the case with many horse rescues and sanctuaries, at this time Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary is unable to take in any new horses. With 32 in our current herd, we can certainly say we have our hands full.
However, we can gladly assist you in finding a home for your horse. Our sanctuary has a large network of other ranches, rescues, sanctuaries, and individuals with whom we remain in regular contact. We frequently and successfully send out ‘email blasts’ in the hopes of finding a home for horses with nowhere else to go. Please note that our network is within Arizona borders and that we are unable to assist with out-of-state inquiries.
If you have a horse you wish to surrender, please email us the information listed below. Rest assured we will remain in contact with you until your horse has found a home.
If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to speak to us in person, please give us a call at (480) 469-9166. Thank you for your dedication to finding your horse a safe forever home!
