Welcome to Mustang and Wild Horse Rescue of Georgia


Welcome to the Mustang and Wild Horse Rescue of Georgia. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a program for wild horses captured by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse roundups. We are located in Georgia in the Canton area. MWHR is committed to providing a safe haven for previously owned mustangs and wild horses that are no longer wanted by their adopters or those who have been abandoned, abused or neglected by their owners. MWHR gentles and rehabilitates the horses they rescue to so they can be successfully re-adopted by new owners. MWHR’s goal is to obtain land in the near future to provide a sanctuary for unadoptable mustangs. It is also devoted to raising public awareness of the plight of wild horses and burros and why saving these Living Legends is critical to our nation. MWHR hopes to inspire others to become involved in their worthy cause. MWHR is run entirely by volunteers; donations and interest are always welcome and greatly appreciated. For more information about MWHR and for our mission statement see our “About MWHR” page.

Adoption Update – Shelby

Shelby (formerly know as Guinness) is an 8 year old Grulla mustang mare that was captured in Cedar Mountain, UT and came to MWHR at the beginning of August because her owner could no longer financially afford to keep her. She was with us only about a week before our friends, Kelly & Lee Bates of Cooper Sandy Farm, came to see her and offered to foster and help with her training. Well, fostering didn’t last long as Lee and Shelby quickly became “attached” at the hip. It’s rare that we are able to find the perfect match so quickly but this is one of those truly wonderful moments. We look forward to getting regular updates on Lee and Shelby’s adventures together.

Horse Fest at Little Creek Farm

We had a very successful outing at Horse Fest at Little Creek Farm in Decatur, GA on the 17th of September. We raised $500 for MWHR thanks to everyone who stopped by and supported us. A very special “thank you” goes to Chris Lobkowicz with Mustang Rescue Network for inviting us and bringing her mustang mare, Angel, to meet and greet with the public. Angel was a wonderful ambassador.
