WIRE is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2002. We are located in Washington state. We work with several AC agencies in our state. We take in horses from all over Washington and adopt horses out to people living in Washington state.
We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of members of the equine family that have been abused, abandoned and/or neglected
WIRE networks with many rescues across the US, but the two main ones we network with in WA state are: Chez Chevaux and Second Chance Ranch
Add updates of horses rescued with FOB fundraising money. Keep a running total on the number of successful FOB rescues ... all helps build a reputation with FOBs.
We currently do not have any FOB horses. We work most with AC and the local community. We are not opposed to FOB horse, we just stay full with the other horses.
