What We Do

Urban Acres Horse Rescue rescues, rehabilitates, rehomes or provides sanctuary for injured, unwanted, and aged horses and ponies.

Many unwanted and sick animals have come through our barn in the last 25 years. The founder has gone to auctions looking for old mares that were headed to slaughter. Urban Acres has also temporarily sheltered any hoofstock (cows, pigs, goats, llama) that are displaced due to unusual circumstances. We provide food and medical care and emergency housing for any lost animal that comes to our rescue.

Some of the horses at Urban Acres have lived on that acreage for 30 years. We have been a place for families to introduce their children horses and other families as well as providing a shelter and temporary home for unwanted, rescued horses.

Interesting Info

Generations of families and children have visited Urban Acres and continue to return. We are well known in Omaha and surrounding communities.
Between 25 and 50 horses destined for slaughter were rehabilitated and found new homes between 1992 and 2009.
Plans are in the works for a youth program summer of 2019.
