NEER North

New England Equine Rescue - North

NEER North is a 501c3 non-profit organization.  Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome horses, donkeys and ponies in the New England area whose lives are at risk; work with horse owners to help them avoid crisis situations, network with other rescues, and educate the public about equine abuse and rescue. 

There are a wide variety of situations, including owner surrenders and 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 equines are rehabilitated with the intention of adoption into new well-suited families.  NEER North also networks closely with other reputable equine rescue organizations, assisting where needed.

NEER North Success Stories
Meet Our Featured Horse

Oconee 'Oak'

Meet Oak, a sweet, 6-year-old OTTB gelding who is looking for a light riding home and a forever partner. Charismatic and funny, he loves to play with his pasture mates. His ideal home would continue his under-saddle training with the goal of being a light riding or trail horse. He would also be an excellent companion.
