State of ColoradoApril 2009 - State of Colorado Commends Front Range Equine Rescue: Established in 1997, Front Range Equine Rescue is dedicated to stopping the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue and educational programs. It began as an all volunteer organization with Board members providing the initial foster homes. Later, a small self-care facility housed several of the incoming rescue horses. Over the years, Front Range Equine Rescue has been able to increase its capacity and currently owns a 40 acre facility in Larkspur. Today, the organization boasts an impressive record of saving abused, neglected, and abandoned horses and placing them with permanent and loving homes. The members of the Colorado House of Representatives are proud to pay tribute to Front Range Equine Rescue for providing valuable rescue and education services to the Centennial State.
