Mission Statement
Triple R’s mission is to advocate for and rescue horses that have been physically and/or psychologically abused, neglected or abandoned. Triple R’s purpose is to provide rehabilitation, seek out caring adoptive families and work to educate horse owners and the community about the plight of unwanted horses and the proper care needed to restore their health and dignity.
Needs Statement
  •  Fosters - Triple R always needs acceptable fosters who are willing to go through a vetting process, and who can provide appropriate attention and care for the horses until they are rehabilitated enough to go to a forever home.
  •  Adoptees - Triple R needs acceptable individuals who are willing be vetted and to make the commitment to provide proper care and compassion for available equines.
  • Volunteers - Triple R is an all volunteer organization, no one is paid for the work they do for this organization or for the work that is done for the equines.  We need volunteers to help us with fundraising efforts, rescue efforts, fostering.
  • Fundraising: We could rescue more horses if we had the funds to do so. In addition to providing reimbursements to fosters for feed, supplements, and veterinary services, we also pay for any training the horse may need in order to make it suitable for adoption.  We need help with fundraising events, and volunteers to make it happen.
  • Donations:  Tack, blankets, or other equine items that are in good condition are always needed.  Monetary donations for the horses are always used for the care of the horses.  We are an all volunteer organization.
  • Facility:  Triple R currently fosters all rescued equines until we can find them appropriate forever homes.  We do not have a facility to house our rescues, and sometimes this impacts our efforts to obtain grants or other fundraising.  Our hope for the future is that we will be able to get a facility donated or possibly raise enough funds to purchase a facility; however, our number one goal and focus will always be saving the horses.
Impact Statement
There is no local animal shelter for equines. Triple R Horse Rescue provides a much needed service and fulfills a need in Leon County and the surrounding communities by providing equine rescue at no cost to tax payers within these communities.  Since its creation in 2010, Triple R has rescued and saved more than 100 equines. Rescue includes: transporting the horse to a foster location; providing veterinarian services, medicine, feed, supplements, farrier services, teeth floating, and training -- whatever the horse needs for its rehabilitation, and finally finding appropriate, well vetted, adoptive homes for the horses.

2015 Goals:
Investigate equines in abuse or neglect situations and rescue those in need; Provide feed, veterinary services, farrier services and training for equines in foster care; Investigate and vet potential foster homes and adoptees; Research and broaden our fundraising efforts. Triple R has an annual fundraiser "Have a Heart for Horses" which brings in about one third of our funding for the year.  The rest of our funding comes from donors like you, and the proceeds from working concessions at local horse shows and events. 

2014 Accomplishments:
Rescue equines that were abused, neglected or abandoned; Investigate and vet potential foster homes and adoptees; Provide feed, veterinary services, farrier services and training for equines in foster care; Successfully organize and manage our annual fundraiser in which met our goal of raising more funds than in previous years; all proceeds went to the direct care of the rescued equines
Background Statement
Triple R Horse Rescue was founded in 2010 by volunteers who were passionate about saving horses that had been abused, neglected, abandoned, or were in situations in which owners could not care for them any longer due to health or financial hardship.  Many of the horses are found through Good Samaritans who call Triple R to look at a horse. We also work with law enforcement agencies  and animal control officials in north Florida and south Georgia.  We also lend a hand to other horse rescues in north Florida and south Georgia, particularly when they are have too many horses.

Short Term Success With appropriate monetary resources Triple R can continue to provide its services on an all voluntary basis.
Long term Success Triple R's program will continue to save equines and provide rehabilitation so that they can be permanently adopted to loving homes.
Program Success Monitored By Triple R monitors its foster homes on a regular basis to ensure that the potential equine adoptee is receiving all the necessary provisions and services for full rehabilitation.
Examples of Program Success Triple R has saved and found appropriate adoptive homes for more than 80 equines since its being founded in 2010.  In many instances these horses come to us in a sick, emaciated state, and may be traumatized due to ill treatment.  We ensure each horse is properly fed and cared for and rehabilitated, and then we find it a forever home.  Potential adoptees are vetted to ensure the horse will be placed in the proper environment and receive the proper care to flourish for the rest of its life.
