We will be their voice. We are C.L.E.A.R.

RVR Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization. We are a volunteer run Horse Rescue in Riverview, Florida.

Here at RVR our mission is to intervene on behalf of mistreated horses. Our goal is to take them out of their bad situations and find loving homes for all of them.

We rescue, rehabilitate and provide a safe place for the neglected, abused, and abandoned. Most have been passed from owner to owner, never knowing love or consistency. RVR is a place where the rescued can get the medical attention, nutrition, training, and a safe haven to rehabilitate so that eventually we can place them to approved and loving homes. RVR Horse Rescue also keeps track of all adopted horses to make sure their living conditions remain good for the rest of their lives.

 Often times, our volunteers are not only horse lovers, but they're willing to help every animal they come across. Bosco here was lucky enough to find our Medical Director and win her over at a shelter; she saved him from euthanasia that was going to take place hours later, luckily it never did. With this in mind, please keep your hearts warm and your arms open. Have a blessed evening everybody.
 Stella and her barn buddy Karin working on some ground manners in the round pen  Hope y'all are having a wonderful afternoon!
 Introducing Halo, yet another pregnant mare rescued off of a slaughter truck heading to Mexico.. Every day we thank the souls who took the steps to save her, Angel and all of the others who are and were in the same situation. Halo is currently resting in good hands and will be coming to RVR very soon.  And even more great news, she will be accompanied by a Paint gelding! Although our hearts are aching for those we can't save, we appreciate the support from all of our fans to save one horse at a time. Please stay tuned for more information about both Halo and her companion.
 Check out these two handsome boys!  Sunny (right - an appendix gelding of 7 years) and Buddy (left - bay thoroughbred of 6 years) are looking for a forever home! Both have successfully completed rehabilitation and are gentle, loving boys! If you live in FL and are interested in possibly adopting either of the boys, please comment below for more information!
 Guess who did excellent during one of his first riding lessons?! Dusty! He even allowed his barn buddy, Kelly, to walk him around the pasture! We are so proud to see how far he has come! ••• If you're interested in possibly sponsoring to adopt Dusty, please comment below for more information!

RVR Horse Rescue is not a sanctuary but rather a home for the rescued to build their minds, bodies, and souls to allow them to move on and find a forever home through our adoption program. Our goal is to rescue the ones we can, and though we realize we can’t save them all we believe each one we can save is worth fighting fore. Each horse’s life is important to us and we make sure they know it from the moment they step foot on our property.

We welcome visitors, but request that they make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you at the ranch!


Thank you to everyone who joined us for our 2nd Annual ASPCA’S Help A Horse Day 2015! We had over 400 visitors and had a great kick off to our Horse Angels campaign.
