With the arrival of winter, our rescue now faces the hardest part of the year. As a registered non-profit, we are supported solely by our volunteers and the generosity of the community, and desperately need assistance during the day to care for our rescues.
In addition, please consider donating to our care fund or purchasing a feed credit with our supplier Queensville Farm Supply. With resources stretched thin, we need all the assistance we can get. Without the support of our community, we wouldn't be able to help these majestic animals.
Donate today and help save a life!

Segunda Vida Equine Rescue is gaining a great group of followers and supporters just a little over two years of opening our doors to our very first Rescue horse.
Since then we have seen many horses come up our driveway and a great number leave to their forever homes. We are always happy to see the horses come, knowing that their fate of slaughter was stopped by everyone assisting that equine to their safety.
We have seen a number of big gentle giants, some very sad mistreated and starving horses, a couple of donkeys and some in need of just a safe place to spend their final days before traveling over the Rainbow Bridge.
With winter fast approaching we are in desperate need of donations of feed and hay.
We currently have an account at the Queensville Mill where donators may donate directly to the Mill. We also have a separate account with our Hay provider and people can donate directly to the Rescue or to the hay provider if preferred.
We can always use waterproof outdoor blankets as well in any and all sizes.
Please consider making a donation to the Rescue today and though it is often said that every little bit helps, it is entirely true, it does help.

Segunda Vida Equine Rescue is a non-profit Rescue located in York Region, we don't get an income for saving a horse, pony, donkey or any equine that finds it's way to us. We aren't doing this for any other reason than that of saving a horse from an end that no animal should ever meet.
We require volunteers and donations to continue to do what we do and we need volunteers who don't mind a little work. Everything from mucking stalls, fixing fences, barn cleaning, fence painting, grooming the horses, to experienced riders for assessment rides.
Donations don't have to be monetary, it can be tools, lumber, hay, gift cards for hardware stores or equine stores, grain, barn equipment, horse blankets and other much needed and appreciated supplies.
If you want to help in any way please contact the Rescue. Every ones time and effort is always appreciated and no one reaps the benefits more than the horses, because that's the reason that Segunda Vida Equine Rescue exists and your time and donations are the reason we can do what we do.
Please contact the Rescue to find out how you can help or to come and visit the horses and see what we do first hand.

Throughout history man has measured a horse's worth by what the horse could do for man. Horses have provided transport, done hard labor, carried soldiers into battle, performed as athletes and entertainers and have provided pleasure to millions. Somewhere along the way man has forgotten the true value of the horse…
As we watch our horses just being horses, we can truly appreciate their intrinsic value. They are awesome creatures to behold. We are often awestruck by their bravery and their loyalty to each other and we are inspired daily by their intelligence, curiosity and playfulness.
We feel we are indebted to these magnificent beings. So, on behalf of mankind, SEGUNDA VIDA EQUINE RESCUE is giving back that which should never have been taken away, their freedom, and providing them with the protection that is owed to them......................................forever indebted to the author of this statement REFUGE RR for their kind and true words...♥♥
