Red Bucket Equine Rescue
Founder Susan Pierce and Harlow PC: Red Bucket Equine Rescue
After Susan Pierce found a starving thoroughbred filly in July of 2008, she recognized the plight of our American horses. Realizing something needed to be done, she formed the Red Bucket Equine Rescue. Only a few months after rescue was open, they grew from 9 horses to 71. Their mission statement is "to save and rehabilitate horses, restore their trust in humankind, and find them safe, loving, permanent adoptive homes."
