Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.
SHARE is a nonprofit humane society in the Champaign, IL area with investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois. We provide housing, care, and training for approximately 30 rescue horses at any one time. Other than some "sanctuary horses," these horses are up for adoption to loving, forever homes.
Our goals are simple - help educate horse owners on proper care and treatment. When necessary we step in to rescue neglected and abuse animals. Once we receive a horse from a situation like that, rehabilitation is the first priority. The horses must be brought to a healthy weight and must learn to trust humans. This takes much time and effort on the founder and volunteers of S.H.A.R.E. but the reward is worth the work.
This is not an easy task and only through the help of volunteers are we able to provide the best care to our rescued horses.
