NEER North is looking for COVID-19 support!

We need your support to help equines and their owners in need during the COVID-19 Crisis.

Many local families impacted by COVID-19, struggling to feed their beloved horses and donkeys, need the support of our Feed Fund to see them through these dark times. You can make a difference in the lives of these equines and their families who love them.

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.

Current assessment and status: Available

After arriving abused, scared of people, and labeled dangerous, Marvel spent over 1 year with the NEER staff and volunteers learning that people are not so bad.  We enlisted the help of trainer, Kayleigh Hammel, who has made amazing progress furthering his education.  He has blossomed into a sweet boy who can now be ridden in the field and on the road alone (with or without a bridle). Marvel is seeking a quiet, experienced, patient adult willing to put the time into creating a lasting bond and continuing his education.  He now stands on cross ties, loves to be groomed and is good for our farrier.   Driving experience unknown.

No known health issues and UTD on shots.
