Get to know us
The Double R Horse Rescue is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that believes every horse deserves a second chance at life. The Double R is focused not only on the physical healing but also on the mental healing of all unwanted, abused, or neglected equine with the ultimate goal of finding them a safe and loving home. However, we at Double R understand that not every horse can safely be placed into a home and will have the ability to live out their days with us at the rescue on our sanctuary side. Double R also takes part in the ongoing commitment of educating the public on proper equine care and horsemanship. Right now Double R works on a small scale as a family-run rescue but would like to see that change.
Double R has been open since 2010 and as our reputation grows so does our need to expand! We have rescued horses from all over Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Iowa, and even Wisconsin! Double R has successfully rehomed over 850 horses and currently has anywhere from 18-20 sanctuary horses, with a growing demand to take on more!
Most horses we rescue will have the overall goal to be trained, rehabilitated, and adopted to a great forever home! Please check out our "Adopt" page for current horses or our Facebook page "Double R Horse Rescue". Double R takes the time to learn a horse's quirks, positives, or negatives so we can properly place them with a new family. This takes time with each individual horse but we have found it is the best way!
