We are an all volunteer organization dedicated to saving the lives of draft horses that were bound for slaughter, victims of neglect or abuse, or whose owners are unable to provide for their needs. Learn more about Draft Gratitude and what we do here!
Learn more about what you can do to help. Become a volunteer, adopt, donate, there are even free ways to help! There are so many ways to make a difference in these horses' lives, nothing is too small.

Monthly giving is an amazing gift that has a HUGE impact on our ability to provide care to rescued draft horses.

Join the Monthly Giving Team today for just $12/month! We would love to have you on the team!

Our Mission: Saving Draft Horses from slaughter by providing a second chance and a place to call home.

Meet the horses in our care. These gentle giants may have had a rough life but now are starting to breath easy knowing they're in a safe place. We also have a page with our horses who have found their Forever Homes.

Draft Gratitude will host a Large Animal Rescue Training on April 22, 2017. 

Firefighters and first responders will learn how to safely and appropriately respond to trailer accidents including extricating a horse.  

Auditors will be able to watch and learn what happens in a trailer accident.  You will also learn how to safely hitch up your trailer, what you should carry with you, and tips on hauling horses safely.  Please bring a lawn chair.
