Mission and Policy Information
|Our Mission here at Missy's Hope Equine Rescue Resource
is to provide an easy site of information for equine rescues, horse
owners who need help, people who see horses in trouble, and for people
who would like to help the horse situation. We post all
information on this site for free. There is no charge because this
is our way to help the horses in the United States.
Our goal is to help save as many horses as possible. We also
hope to be able to help rescues find adopters for the horses that are
ready for homes. When a forever home is found for a horse, it
opens the way for another horse to be saved.
Because of the constant changes that occur in horse rescue (i.e.
horses being adopted or rescued from their situation) the horses listed
as looking for homes or for adoption are not guaranteed. I keep
horses on the list for a month, or until I get an update on their
situation. Sometimes I forget to remove a horse that is safe, so
please bear with me. If you contact an owner about a horse and
find that the horse has found a home, please drop me and email and let
me know. If possible as the date from the page, the number, and a
short description. That will help me so much to find and update
the horse on the site. I will keep the list current each day from
the previous nights email list.
Also watch the update page. I will list any information that
comes through on the horses from the past and current lists.
|Because we are a small group (basically me and my husband), I am not able to visit each rescue and horse listed
on the website. It is for this reason, we have come up with a
policy to insure that we are assisting only the legitimate rescues,
organizations, and individuals.
It is our policy to look into any allegations made against a rescue,
organization, or individual (further listed as the individual).
When an allegation is made, we start by contacting rescues in the state
where individual lives. We do this because most rescues know of illegitimate
individuals. If there is no record through the rescue, we then
contact the local Humane society, ASPCA, or Animal Control
officer. We ask if there are any documented cases against the
If we find that the individual has at any time been convicted of a
charge of animal cruelty, the individual will be removed
immediately. If there is an investigation under way, we will
remove the individual from the site until the investigation is complete. An investigation of this kind will lead to an automatic
warning for the individual (see following paragraph for an explanation
of the warning system).
If in the course of our investigation we find the allegations are
warranted and documented, we will issue a warning to the
individual. The individual has 30 days to change their policy or
to fix the situation. If the individual is unwilling to change the
situation, we will immediately remove their site. If the individual
is willing to work on the situation and change, their website will be
allowed to remain on the site, but the warning will be noted. If
another warning is issued, the individual is removed from the
site. They will have one year to improve the situation. At
the end of one year an evaluation will be made. If the individual
has indeed changed, they will be allowed to re-list their site on the
condition that the next warning will bar them from ever re-listing.
Any individual convicted of animal cruelty or banned from our list
will be listed on our rescue warnings page.
If you are concerned about an organization and feel that an
investigation should be started, please email me with the information
that you have (i.e. individual name, organization, city and state, and
any documented details or suspicions that you may have). Please be
patient. I will begin the investigation and will keep you updated throughout its course.
may request to be added to the site, but application may be turned down
if an abeyance of favorable references persists.
