Freedom & Grace Equine Shelter

Help us save more horses and provide above average care.

The horses that come into Freedom & Grace frequently need extra care requiring veterinary attention.  We rely on donors like you to help make sure each animal receives the best care.

Volunteering is more than giving up your free time!

Volunteers are crucial in our efforts to save every horse.  Volunteers provide necessary love, grooming and so much more.

Vice President: Melissa Reali

Melissa's love for animals started at a very young age.  She was always bringing home stray animals to nurse back to health.  Ranch work and being around livestock were just a way of life for her.  She particularly enjoyed watching the peacefulness of the horses grazing their fields.  Melissa founded Freedom Horse Rescue and has dealt with some pretty extreme cases of abuse and neglect.  Freedom Horse Rescue has joined forces with A Grazing Grace.  Melissa believes networking and working together with other organizations is key to better solutions for horses.
