Horse Welfare Inc is a registered tax concession charity and deductible gift recipient with fundraising approval from the OLGR. ABN 46 935 608 276, CFN 21430. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, re-educate and rehouse horses in need. We are located in Glen Oak in the Hunter Valley in NSW.

There are many reasons a horse may find its way to us. Some are rescued from doggers yards on their last chance ticket. Others come from homes where their owners were simply not educated appropriately in the care or management of horses. Or, deceased estates with no other options. And sadly, some do come from backgrounds of complete neglect.

You can donate to us via the paypal link on the right of the page or direct deposit to BSB 650 000 Account 989107706 Horse Welfare Inc. Postal address is P.O. Box 92 Clarence Town NSW 2321. The President Jo Briggs can be contacted directly on 0418682571.
