Believe Equine Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to saving horses from abuse, neglect and slaughter. Lisa Martinez established a deep love of all animals during childhood while learning how to care for them on her father's ranch in upstate New York. As an adult, she has dedicated her life to animal rescue working with dog, cat and equine rescues for over 20 years. Over the past ten years, Lisa's focus shifted to private horse rescue specializing in orphans and pregnant mares. Today, Lisa is the primary owner of Believe Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation Center, Inc. (EIN:83-2594508) where she cares for 22 equine rescues that were once abused and neglected. Each horse that has come to Believe Rescue has its own unique story. Some grew old and developed special needs that required more than the owner was willing to give, some became lame and were sent to kill pens, others were just abandoned simply because the owner could no longer afford to care for them.
Believe Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation Center, Inc. provides a safe and loving home for these horses while they regain their strength and begin to trust humans once again. Once the horse has reached its optimum health, Lisa then begins the search to find an appropriate adoptable home. Many have been able to find their forever homes and have a fresh start in life, but some will not be adoptable due to their age, health or mental scars. These horses will remain with Lisa at Believe Equine Rescue where they will receive the love, support and care that each one deserves. In fact, most of the horses currently in Lisa's care are seniors with special needs. They need special feed, medications and frequent visits from the farrier and vet.
Believe Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation Center, Inc. relies solely on donations from the community to assist with the care of the 22 rescue horses currently in our care.
