Aiken Equine Rescue was established in 2006 with almost 90 acres of land.
We have eight pastures, thirteen paddocks, a stable and office building, and maintenance barn. In the ten years since its founding, Aiken Equine Rescue has become the largest horse rescue center in the southeastern United States. It has placed 800 horses into adopted homes and rescued many horses, donkeys, and mules. At any given time, between 60 - 70 horses reside at the Center: 10 boarders, 12 ‘sanctuary’ horses, and usually about 40 up for adoption.
We provide each with food, medical attention, and personal care until we find them an appropriate home. With your help, we can be successful!

We are made up of a large family of volunteers with a few staff members thrown in for good measure. We work hard and love what we do for the horses. We also, take it hard when we lose one of our own. The hole they have left in our hearts will remain there, but it will continue to be filled with wonderful memories of a men worth knowing. They were one of us and they will be missed.
