FCER is an all volunteer non-profit group dedicated to the rescue of horses, burros, and mules: their rehabilitation (both physically and mentally), and their adoption into good, loving homes. We will assist wherever, whenever we can, to help horses in need.
Located just outside Aztec, in the Four Corners area of New Mexico,we follow the guidelines for rescues as set forth by the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners). This guide can be viewed by clicking on the Forms icon, then AAEP.
Four Yearlings Rescued!
Baby & Scout
On Friday, July 27th, we got a call from a man desperately looking for help for 2 yearlings he had rescued from a lady. She had them advertised on Craigslist as "$50 Weed Eaters". He'd owned them for a couple weeks but couldn't get the filly, now named Baby, to improve. We went to see what was happening, and the sight was enough for us to call the vet clinic and tell them we were bringing them in. And days later we have Romeo and Caesar from the same background. Days after that - a mare and foal are rescued too. Skinny isn't a graphic enough term to describe this mare and colt.
April 25, 2018 — Four Corners Equine Rescue (FCER) and Heart of the Horses Sanctuary (HOHS) have joined together to launch The Chance For a Lifetime®, a program that provides special care and training for rescued equines.
FCER has been awarded Verification Status by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries! GFAS is the only globally recognized organization that provides standards for animal sanctuaries. This is totally voluntary on the part of FCER, and we did it to hold ourselves accountable and to provide our donors assurance that your donations are well spent!
