The White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue is a Virginia 501(c)3 non-profit corporation dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and retraining of abused, neglected and at-risk Appaloosa and other horses, especially those in urgent need.

Here, they are loved and cared for by unpaid volunteers who generously donate their time and talent.
