The Equine Rescue League (ERL) is a non-profit organization that supports the responsible use of working, sport, and pleasure horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. Our goals are to prevent the neglect or abuse of any equine, to offer educational programs to the community, and to provide shelter, rehabilitation and adoption for those animals in need of our services.

The ERL was created and continues to exists thanks to its many volunteers and donations. Thank you! We wouldn't be here without you!

The best way to understand what we do, is to read the stories of horses we've been able to help! Also, don't forget to check out the horses currently available for adoption!

If you have questions or concerns of an urgent nature, please phone the office at (540) 822-4577.
