Mission & Ethos
The SWS is a non-profit equine rescue located in Hartly, Delaware, dedicated to the rescue of abused, neglected, abandoned and “off the track” horses. Our organization offers sanctuary, medical care, rehabilitative services and training to these horses and then places them in carefully screened, loving and permanent homes. We receive our horses from many different sources – private owners, veterinarian recommendations, the SPCA, racetracks and boarding facilities.
