About Dark Horse Rescue

Dark Horse Rescue (DHR) began in early 2009 in response to a growing need of a safe place for abandoned and neglected horses in the West Tennessee and North Mississippi area. We have grown from a backyard to a fully functioning rescue facility located in Byhalia, MS.

Dark Horse Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides proper nutrition and medical care to area horses that have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. Upon arrival, each horse is placed in quarantine in order to avoid spread of disease. Horses are evaluated in order to determine nutritional needs and their diet is adjusted accordingly. Pregnant mares stay at DHR until foals are weaned at which time mare and foal are separately placed up for adoption.

Today, DHR has rehabilitated over 50 horses and placed most in adoptive homes. We continue to grow thanks to the wonderful support we have received throughout the community. Please contact us for more information on adoption services or volunteer opportunities.
