Front Range Equine Rescue works to prevent the abuse and neglect of horses through rescue and education. The rescue program is at the heart of Front Range's work. Incoming horses with unknown backgrounds are quarantined. Horses come from auctions, kill lots, animal control impound, abandonment cases, and owner surrender. The focus is on abused horses with emphasis on those bound for slaughter. Once healthy, horses can be adopted. The educational program offers information on a variety of horse care topics. Past events have included basic first aid, equine nutrition, trailer loading, fire evacuation, safety on the trail, and effective communication with your horse. National campaigns focus on ending horse slaughter and protection of wild horses. Campaigns include legal action. Special programs assist horse owners with partial reimbursement for gelding stud colts/stallions and for humane euthanasia when needed. FRER offers rehoming tips to help owners safely place horses.
