(Please note – I look a whole lot better than this in real life!)
Jerry Finch founded Habitat for Horses in 1998 in Hitchcock, Texas. Since then, relying mostly on private donations, the nonprofit organization has saved 5,178 horses from abuse and neglect and adopted 4,660 of those. Most of the horses come to the organization from law enforcement seizures. Country music legend Willie Nelson is on the organization’s board, and keeps some of the rescued horses at his ranch near Austin.
(Note – The reporter made this video while he was doing the story for the newspaper. It contains more detail about the “Willie Nelson Signature Horses,” a unique line of paint horses that may be adopted from Willie Nelson (He will sign the adoption contract) and an explanation about our search for more land in the local area.)
Habitat for Horses is a 501.c.3 nonprofit equine protection organization supported solely by donations. We have around 200 donkeys and horses under our care, plus one ornery, old mule. Most of them are here because law enforcement removed them from their previous owner. Our ability to rehabilitate and rehome them comes from the financial support of people like you. Please support us by making a donation for the horses we all serve. Click HERE to donate
