EQUINE RESCUE IN NEW MEXICO

The State of New Mexico, in cooperation with members of the State Legislature and Governor's Office, established laws governing equine rescues in the State of New Mexico.

The New Mexico Livestock Board is the regulatory authority governing abuse and neglect of Livestock.

In conjunction with the livestock industry, equine industry veterinarians and humane associations, a procedure for the care of abandoned and neglected horses has been established and implemented in New Mexico.

The New Mexico Livestock Board licenses equine rescue, sanctuary and retirement  facilities in the state. This includes facilities which provide care for captured wild horses that cannot be returned to their range.  Listed below are the facilities currently licensed and approved  . These licensed facilities have subscribed to the standards of care for horses as detailed in "Care Guidelines for Equine Rescue and Retirement Facilities", published by the American Association of Equine Practitioners.

No persons, facilities or organizations other than those listed below are recognized by the State of New Mexico as equine rescue, sanctuary or retirement facilities.  Any efforts by any individual, facility or organization to promote such a facility and/or solicit donations or funds for such a facility not currently on this list should be reported to the New Mexico Livestock Board office or the New Mexico Attorney General's Office.
