Sound Equine Options
Create positive, lasting change to ensure every horse is safe, healthy and valued by caring for neglected, abused and at-risk equines, providing leadership, support and education to owners, the community and law enforcement.
Bottom Line for Portland
Donations provide our rescue horses lifesaving care and allows our team to assist with urgent requests to save horses suffering from neglect and abuse. Each horse in our care receives specialized veterinary treatment, rehabilitation and training to prepare them for a loving, permanent home. Together, we can end equine suffering and create a brighter future for horses in our community.
Sound Equine Options also supports our community during natural and manmade disasters. In fall 2020 many parts of Oregon were devastated by wildfire. We assisted by organizing evacuation efforts that moved hundreds of horses, and by setting up an emergency shelter that housed up to 60 horses at a given time. We also gathered and distributed feed and supplies, and once homes were declared safe, helped transport horses home.
“Sound Equine Options’ team works mud-caked, rain-soaked or looking over their shoulders as the fire gets closer and more animals wait to be loaded in the trailer. They are the go-call for our region’s most horrifying equine animal abuse cases or disasters, while never losing heart for the long work of stopping abuse forever. They do this with a volunteer base of some of the toughest people I’ve ever met, an Executive Director who never backs down and a first-rate organizational structure built for success. I am honored to support their work.” - Anne Dufay
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Compassion is our central value. We seek to extend this governing ethic by honoring and developing diversity, equity and inclusion in our organization and community so that everyone can thrive. Through our policies, practices, and programs we strive to create a welcoming and supportive environment for humans and animals alike.
