HONEY - In Rehabilitation
8yr old Arabian Cross mare. This sweet girl came to us emaciated and in need of multiple, extensive procedures to correct damage to her leg from being entangled in barbed wire fencing several months ago. She will receive that care, a complete physical, vaccinations, de-worming and long overdue farrier work. This beautiful girl has a long road ahead of her, but considering all that she has endured, we are hopeful for a beautiful new beginning and a life of love and good health from here. We will share her journey as we embark on an extensive treatment program along with our veterinarian to bring healing to her leg and nourishment to her body.
We are asking for donations toward Honey's rehabilitation, which has been estimated at $5,000 just for the numerous procedures on her leg. If you would like to contribute to her rehabilitation, please click on the Donate Now link or you can mail a gift to HOPE Acres Rescue, PO Box 2037, Goose Creek, SC 29445. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
Please keep Honey in your prayers as we embark on her journey to recovery.

Part of rescue involves making assessments of each animal to determine their likeliness to be adopted to a forever home. Occasionally our consensus is to provide that forever home to the horse at H.O.P.E. Acres. The horses that are offered a life-long stay are unique ones who need long term medical care, treatment of life threatening illness, a life of leisure due to age or inability to take a rider because of physical or medical limitations . This is part of our commitment to ensure those who have suffered neglect, abuse or tragedy in their lives never again find themselves in harms way; without the care that they need and deserve. There is never a guarantee upon intake that these beautiful souls will find a family capable or well-suited to provide this, so our decision to take a rescue includes that forever care when necessary.
14.2h, 27 Yr Old Bay Mustang Mare ~ This sweet girl has had a rough life and needed sufficient nutritional care and a place to retire. She came in severely emaciated, in need of vaccinations, farrier work, dental work and a worming regimen. Because of her physical abuse Sage has had a hard time learning to trust again, however over time, she has allowed a select few into her life and these volunteers love and care for her immensely.
29 yrs old Tennessee Walker ~ Such a sweet older gentleman. Shadow loves to be groomed and pampered and is a volunteer favorite! A hitch in his shoulder prevents riding. He receives regular therapy stretches and exercise to keep his mobility up.
