The White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue is a Virginia 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused, neglected and at-risk Appaloosa and other horses, especially those in urgent need and in danger of slaughter. We provide shelter, care, medical and rehabilitation services to horses in need, and whenever possible, we place them in loving and permanent homes. Horses that cannot or should not be adopted are given permanent sanctuary so that they may live the remainder of their lives in safety and dignity. Horses in the care of White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue are housed in Burkeville, VA, as well as at affiliate foster farms. Here, they are loved and cared for by unpaid volunteers who generously donate their time and talent.
