Mississippihorses.org is an online community dedicated to assisting horse rescue organizations and law enforcement agencies across our state in rehabilitating and finding homes for abused and abandoned horses. We provide information to horse owners so they can make an educated choice for their horses when they are no longer able to keep them. Our network includes volunteers from the Humane Society, veterinarians and their assistants, horse rescue organizations, trainers, riders and horse lovers of all kinds. From retirees to middle school students, we all share one thing - a love for these magnificent animals. The purpose and mission of our web site is to assist equine rescue organizations in their efforts to find homes for their horses and to bring awareness to the problems and issues facing horses in our state.

The 2014 Saving Horses One Rescue At A Time Calendar is available to order online. It is amazing to see the difference in the horses from when they enter the rescue system until the day they are adopted. We share their stories so you too can appreciate where they came from to where they are today! Special thanks to Nutrena for their sponsorship.
   
We were so proud of our volunteers, David Gray and Victoria Scarbrough and our rescues, Dumas and Pippi for their participation in the Parelli Horse & Soul Show in Tunica! Please visit our album, Weekend with Parelli. The Parelli's and their team of trainers were amazing and it's obvious they truly care about the welfare of horses. Clips and actual demo of Dumas during the show. Will post Pippi's soon.
   
 
Sponsoring a horse is a wonderful way to help if you have limited time, space or finances. You can be a part of a specific horse's life while it waits for its forever home or sponsor one that is a permanent resident at the Muleshoe Ranch Sanctuary in Carroll County.

homes to save as many as possible. To learn more about the nurse mare industry and about adopting a foal you can go to their page. Read more.
