Promise Kept Farm’s equine rescue saves lives for decades

More from Northern Virginia

Promise Kept Farm hosted its 28th open house this weekend; an inside look into its equine rescue.

Founded in 1990, the nonprofit has saved hundreds of lives. The farm works in tandem with law enforcement and animal control officers to seize and rehabilitate abused, abandoned, and surrendered horses.

“That’s why I keep coming back,” said Hayley Galloway, stable manager and former volunteer, “When we can go full circle from rescue to rehabilitation to re-homing and get all the way through that cycle, which is awesome.” 

Rehab takes an average of three to 12 months. After a thorough adoption process, the horses are purchased for just $100.
