We are a volunteer organization funded entirely on your donations. Your gift is guaranteed to go directly toward saving horses lives.


Volunteers are key to our ongoing success! We depend on our caring volunteers to help rescue horses that have been surrendered, abused, neglected or on their way to slaughter.


 Change the world for that one horse. Provide them with a much needed second chance at happiness.

Shadarobah’s mission is to save horses from slaughter, abuse and neglect; then place them in loving and nurturing homes.

Part of that mission includes educating people on the plight of horses and making it possible for all people to enjoy the great gift of knowing a  horse!



There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.

- Sir Winston Churchill

How to help

  • Donate!We are providing feed, medication and other supplies to foster families who have taken in and are caring for Shadarobah horses during this time. Your donations are needed now more than ever.
  • Gas cards. Our volunteers are making-up feed bags and driving them out to our foster families on a daily basis. With foster families located throughout the greater Fort Wayne community we are putting on a lot of miles!
  • Help us fundraise and volunteer.We have several fundraisers coming up including Fort Wayne Pet Expo May 3-4. We are in urgent need of volunteers to help with these critical events. Check out our calendar page for more information. 

Update on Shadarobah relocation:

We would like to thank the community for the amazing outpouring of support we have received during this tumultuous time! All of the animals at Shadarobah have been moved to temporary foster homes and in some cases new forever homes. THANK YOU to everyone particularly our foster families. The rescue is NOT closing! We are in the process of finding a new location.


Check out a great article by the Journal Gazette on the important role Shadarobah has had in the community "Horse rescue needs rescuing of its own"


There is still much to do during this time.
