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.

 Have you ever listened to the lyrics to "The Rose" by Better Midler? It fits our girl almost perfectly. Here she is, having a good day Sunday. No tongue hanging out. :) She can be quite the talker when she wants something, too. She has the sweetest whinny. #Rose #horses #ilovehorses #horsesofinstagram #whinny #makeadifference #rescue #rvrhorserescue #sfspca
 Mocha is continuing to do well with her rehabilitation process. She is such a sweetheart and has recently started going on walks with our core volunteers. How many likes can this pretty girl get?

 With drastic temperatures come drastic measures, haha! {Dusty drinking a long sip of water; please make sure you keep your horses hydrated in this hot FL weather! }
 We have more great news to share with you today! Whiskey, our newest OTTB mare whom arrived at RVR with horrific hooves and a badly scraped leg, has been examined by our veterinarian, Dr. Gold; he has stated that Whiskey's hooves will heal just fine and that she will be okay! The only thing that we must worry about now is her gash on her leg, but that will heal with careful treatment and wrapping. We are so thankful to have all of these blessings coming our way!

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!
