At TMR Rescue we are deeply committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of equines, fostering a sanctuary where dignity and care are paramount for every donkey, horse, mule, and pony we shelter.


We offer these gracious animals a second chance at life, nurture their recovery, and ensure their safe transition to loving homes. Our expansive 200-acre sanctuary serves as a testament to our dedication, managed by a team whose passion for equine welfare knows no bounds.

Our employees, volunteers, and donors play an important role working with and supporting our equine friends.   Without all of you it would be impossible to continue providing the level of service they deserve.  



Donations are critical to our continued operations.   Currently we have several projects that we are planning that are dependent on the support we receive from people like you!  Please check out our Projects page and donate today!



Volunteers are the cornerstone of our mission.

Without volunteers and their selfless commitment to help with all these animals we would not be able to continue our work to help so many animals.


We have volunteers of all ages and walks of life that come out every week to help with everything from mucking stalls to providing clean water to all the animals. 


  It is hard work that makes a difference.  You see it every day when the animals come up to you and say hi! Now where are my carrots???  

We know you would love to become a part of this volunteer family!  Check out our volunteer page today and get signed up to help these wonderful animals and fill your soul with happiness

Hay There

I'm all ears!

Donkey ears are extra-special!   Not only do donkeys have great hearing, they have the ability to move their ears independently so they can locate the source of a sound.  If that isn't cool enough, their ears contain a lot of blood vessels that are used for thermo-regulation.  Think we are done with those cute ears?   Not quite!   They also use their ears to communicate their mood!
