On May 15th, 2020 ERR coordinated with Montgomery Nursing Home to make a social distancing visit with two of our senior horses, Bob and Denali. The residents have not been able to have visits from family and friends due to COVID-19, and ERR was happy to brighten their day with a visit. Link below.

Volunteers Step Up To Help Crews, Evacuees, Times Herald Record

Shawangunk Ridge Forest Fire
On Monday, May 4, 2015 ERR was called upon to assist with the evacuation of 20 miniature horses from a Phillipsport farm ordered to evacuate. Volunteers transported a total of 14 horses to our facility in Pine Bush, where they were cared for until the fires were abated and the evacuation order was lifted. Thank you to all who helped us to help these horses.

Equine Rescue Resource Inc. assisted horses and horseman at Cedar Lane Stables, in cooperation with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation during 2012 and 2013. We were deeply honored to be invited to their Urban Parks Service Awards & Graduation Ceremony on June 20, 2014. Our own Colleen Segarra and Sade Conway were presented with the Urban Park Service Award for their efforts. We wish to thank PEP Sgt. Robin Wickert, who received the Honorable Service Medal Award, for going above and beyond to reach out to the rescue community to ensure the long term welfare of New York City horses.

ERR attended the Investigating Animal Cruelty Workshop at the Orange County Sheriffs Office on May 20, 2014. It was educational and informative. Thank you to NYSHA, the OC District Attorney and the Orange County Sheriff for a great workshop.
