NEER North

New England Equine Rescue - North

NEER North is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving horses, donkeys, and ponies whose lives are at risk in our local area. We also work with horse owners to help them avoid crisis situations, network with other rescues and educate the public about equine abuse and rescue. 

We actively rescue horses and donkeys in need. There are a wide variety of situations including owner surrenders, abuse and neglect, where these majestic animals are at risk of diminished health or, worse yet, at risk for slaughter.

NEER North is a safe haven where these animals are rehabilitated with the intention of adoption into new families.  NEER North also networks closely with other reputable equine rescue organizations, assisting where needed.

NEER North Success Stories
Meet Our Featured Horse!


Bergie is a 6 year old OTTB ( Trufflesberg ) who isn’t your typical redhead mare! She loves attention and being brushed all over, and is very sweet with other horses of all types/ages. Bergie last raced in summer of 2020 and reportedly retired sound after a fairly successful racing career due to a breathing issue. She is clean legged, built really nicely, is a quick-study and brave. That being said, when something does frighten her she can have a big reaction, but is steadily gaining confidence and becoming less reactive. Because of this, we recommend her as a project for an advanced rider working with a professional trainer, or to an adopter with experience restarting OTTBs.  She is eager to learn and wants a job and a person of her own!
