Project Sage Horse Rescue, run by 19-year-old Brittany Rostron, is based on Long Island, New York. We are New York state certified non-profit organization and a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Project Sage was started in 2007 and has since rescued over 30 horses from slaughter. Our horses are kept at various farms on Long Island at loving foster homes. Brittany started Project
Sage in memory of her late thoroughbred, Sage, who was a rescue horse.
Project Sage Horse Rescue attends auctions and goes to feedlots to purchase horses that would other wise be sent to slaughter. The horses are then assessed by a veterinarian and further rehabilitated by us to ensure their health and proper weight. After the horse is in top condition the horse is offered for adoption to an appropriate home. Prospective adopters are screened to ensure that the horse will be placed in a perfect, loving, forever home. Every horse is adopted out under contract so he/she will never end up back at the auction. Volunteers conduct visits to the horses new home periodically to ensure they are still safe and are being cared for properly. We raise funds in various ways and do many fundraiser's through out the year. We also collect monetary donations. Project Sage Horse Rescue attends many events within the community to educate the public, especially the youth, on the inhumane slaughter and neglect of horses.
