Wildhorse Ranch Rescue aka Wildhorse, was started in 1995 by Kim Meagher (pronounced Maher), an employee of Intel Corporation. She and her two young children, Nick and McKay, accidentally found out about the plight of homeless horses in the United States. Once they knew that over 60,000 horses in this country are sent to horrible deaths each year, they knew they had to do something to help. They rescued horses privately from 1995 until 2000. But even with their efforts, they could not save very many horses. Kim applied for, and received non-profit status for Wildhorse and with the help of many people, Wildhorse has been able to save hundreds of horses from death, abuse and neglect. Note: Our use of the term "horses" refers to all types of equine.
Wildhorse also takes in retired United States Government horses and mules from the US Forest Service, and the United States Cavalry. Wildhorse provides an opportunity for these hardworking animals to live in peace and comfort in their golden years. No, the US Government does not pay for their retirement.
Wildhorse is a registered 501(c)3 organization with the Federal Government and in the State of Arizona. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by the IRS.
