"But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; and the birds of the air, and they will tell you; Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will explain to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this, In whose hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?" Job 12-7-10.

It is only through the blessing of our Lord that we are able to care for these animals.

Richardson Equine Rescue Inc.

A horse, mule and donkey rescue located in far west Texas.



Richardson Equine Rescue in Van Horn, TX  is a small Christian rescue shelter that provides an individual safe haven and care to rescued horses including horses saved from slaughter.

Our mission is to provide a safe environment, medical care, and loving attention to unwanted horses, donkeys and mules.  When they are ready, our equines are available for adoption.

We are an Owner Placement Shelter
As an owner placement shelter, we receive horses from the Humane Society, auctions and private owners who can no longer take care of their horses.

Owners relinquish their right of ownership when they sign their horses over to us. We care for the animals until we find "forever homes" or they are accepted as a sanctuary horse.  Sanctuary horses remain with us the rest of their lives.
