Front Range Equine Rescue (FRER) is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to prevent the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue and education.
Front Range Equine Rescue began in 1997 and was incorporated as a Colorado non-profit on 8/1/97. Front Range Equine Rescue began as an all volunteer organization with Board members providing the initial foster homes. A small self-care facility soon housed several of the incoming rescue horses as well. Over the years, Front Range has worked hard to increase its capacity and was able to purchase a 40-acre facility in Larkspur in 2006. A major gift campaign in 2007-2009 allowed for further expansion with the purchase of 81 additional acres in Larkspur late in 2009. Horses are also kept at 2-3 other private facilities in the area.
