Safe Haven Equine Warriors (SHEW) welcomes a limited number of interns each year. Interns are generally, but not limited to, students at the college or high school level (Intern/mentor programs) pursuing careers in veterinary medicine, the horse industry, equine rescue and advocacy.

Maryland Horse Rescue is a certified 501 (c)(3) nonprofit horse rescue and rehabilitation facility located in Westminster, Maryland. We DO NOT sell horses, but facilitate the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of those animals in our care. We do have some blind residents, but strive to adopt out as many animals as possible to loving informed homes. We are 100% volunteer run and operate solely on donations. We specialize in the care of seniors and blind horses.
We can always use an extra set of hands to help with farm chores including loving our horses. Volunteer opportunities include: feeding and grooming horses, barn chores, facility maintenance, fundraising, administrative tasks and more!
Safe Haven Equine Warriors (SHEW) is a Maryland-based nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the humane treatment of all equines. Our primary focus is to rescue, rehab, and re-home equines either suffering from abuse and neglect or those in imminent danger of slaughter, abuse, or neglect.
Interested in volunteering? We’d love to have you join us to make a difference in the lives of horses and the people who love them!
