About Us

A little about our Rescue

Founded in 2012, Starfish Equine Rescue has been taking in neglected,abused,and unwanted horses out of kill pens. Starting with an off the track thoroughbred that was lovingly named Guinness. Since Guinness, many horses have run through our fields, and eventually finding their forever homes. We owe our success to our volunteers and generous donations that our supporters provide. We would like to thank you for your continued support and hope to see you at upcoming Starfish Equine Rescue events. If you are interested in adopting please see our requirements below.

Finns Story



Finnegan's Mom Pippa came to Starfish Equine Rescue pregnant with no information on how far along she was or her condition.She needed emergency eye removal from an old injury and a tooth that was seriously infected. Pippa received the proper care she needed once she was in our hands.After 30 days of being in our care, Pippa gave birth to beautiful colt named Finn.  Unfortunately Finn suffered from "Dummy Foal Syndrome". Finn was rushed to the emergency equine hospital with his mom shortly after birth due to his quick decline in health.  Despite all efforts Finn passed away peacefully with his mom close by. His mom remained at the hospital until she was ready to come home. In memory of Finn the rescue opened a consignment tack shop so more horses could be brought into our care. We hope to save as many more horses in the upcoming years. We couldn't do it without your generous support. To read about dummy foal syndrome click the link below.
