Helping Homeless Horses

Healing Hearts Hooves and Paws is a 501(c)3 non-profit located in McHenry, IL that supports & rehomed homeless horses and dogs, providing veterinary care, training and rehab. Our horses are rescued from the slaughter pipeline or owner surrenders.

Today, there are an estimated 170,000 unwanted horses across the nation. Of these, 120,000–130,000 horses are shipped to slaughter in Mexico and Canada every year, where they are processed for human consumption.

Our goal is to provide each horse with food, shelter, care, medical treatment, and training to help them become adoptable. As space and funding allow, a limited number of equines are provided sanctuary care at the facility for the rest of their lives.
