Front Range Equine Rescue works to end the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue and education. One of the most critical aspects of rescue work is to prevent abuse from occurring. This goal can be accomplished through direct rescue efforts, but education of new, potential and existing horse owners (and the general public) is the key to eliminating areas of abuse. Providing creative, yet practical solutions for horses is necessary to advance equine welfare. Examples include educating horse owners on safe means to re-home their horses; providing short-term assistance to horse owners during financial crisis or other disasters; determining other outlets for former competition horses for second careers instead of dumping into the slaughter pipeline; and utilizing safe and humane alternatives for wild horses other than roundups, warehousing in government pens, or slaughter.

State-Of-Colorado-FRER-LargeIn April 2009, The 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. 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.

In 2001, FRER was the agency winner of the Rio Vista Product’s “Hank Award” for outstanding rescue work.
