Swingin' D Horse Rescue

From slaughter to sanctuary to Happily Ever After.

Horses for Sale - the Core of America's Unwanted Horse Problem

“Horses for Sale.” It’s the first horse-related term you see when you hit the space bar after typing the word “horse” into Google’s search field. That means it’s the most often searched term in the world’s most powerful search engine. And that’s just the beginning of America’s horse problem.

Welcome to Swingin' D Horse Rescue

Swingin’ D Horse Rescue believes horses deserve to live and die with the dignity they’ve earned. Since the 1400s, when Spanish explorers roamed the plains on horseback, horses have been part the American fabric. They helped to discover and build this great nation. So how could we allow as many as 130,000 American horses to be transported across foreign borders and slaughtered for their meat?

Apply to Volunteer

We're always looking for volunteers to help care for the horses we rescue. Whether it's mucking paddocks, grooming, bathing, feeding, walking, training, we need you! Take a look at our training manual and volunteer form and see if the 'D is worthy of your precious time.


Success Stories

Here's where you can keep up with the horses we rescue from slaughter and nurse back to health. "Success" at the 'D means keeping a horse out of the slaughter pipeline. Sometimes success is sanctuary; sometimes it's reaching a hopeless horse; sometimes it's adoption.


Our Horses

We have horses available for foster and adoption. One of our primary tenets is responsible horse ownership, so we require a contract any time a horse leaves Swingin' D. It's nothing personal. If you're a responsible adopter, you won't even feel the difference.

Some of our success stories


Keep up with Swingin' D on Facebook! Like and follow our page to see the latest information on rescues, quarantine progress and adoptions!


Horses do the craziest things, and we try to capture their personalities in photos and videos. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to see how our horses progress.


We try to post videos of the horses we rescue - from kill pen pickup, to quarantine, to vet visits, to evaluation and training, to adoption. Be sure to watch!
