Established in 1975, Orphan Acres Equine Rescue, Rehabilitation and Sanctuary, Inc. is a private, non-profit (501 (c)(3)) farm in Viola, Idaho. Here abused, neglected, and abandoned equine and other large animals are cared for and rehabilitated. Where our animals are from, how they arrive at the farm, the length of their stay, and where they go when they are ready to leave, depends on a variety of factors.

We have horses come to us from across the nation, Vermont to South Carolina, California to our own Northwest states, of Montana, Washington, Wyoming, Oregon and Idaho. Many come from places where the owner’s were either unwilling or unable to provide proper care. Often they arrive starved, in need of medical attention and otherwise neglected. These horses require a lot of love and a lot of food, before they are back in condition fit enough to be adopted or otherwise placed in a new home.

Since our inception, Orphan Acres has found a home for over 1450 animals. There are cases where an animal is too old or has too many problems to be safely adopted out, she/he then becomes a member of the Orphan Acres permanent herd.

Selfless love

posted 5 years ago

The people at Orphan Acres are wonderful and put their whole hearts into providing a home or finding homes for horses that in need of love. He has horses of all different backgrounds, even a movie star! I love helping out here and hope to someday be able to adopt a horse for myself :). Four hooves up for Orphan Acres!

Pros: This shelter gives the best it can to the horses

Cons: The mud in the spring is overwhelming and hard to prevent

Volunteers make all the difference!

posted 5 years ago

My daughter started volunteering there while attending WSU and it is through her that I found out about Orphan Acres. The compassionate staff and volunteers leave you with a wonderful sense of all that goes on there.

Pros: wonderful caring staff

Cons: lack of some resources
