Your Donation Makes a Difference

The Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County was founded in 2011, to provide shelter and care for mistreated or abandoned horses and other animals. We provide shelter, food, and veterinary services for these animals until a suitable home can be found. As secondary services, we provide educational and therapeutic programs to local schools and charities with and about these animals.

Today with a heavy heart and an urgent plea for help. Our horse rescue is facing an unprecedented emergency, and we desperately need your support to continue our mission of saving lives.


In recent weeks, we have seen a surge in cases of neglected and abused horses in our state. The ongoing economic challenges have left many horse owners unable to provide for their animals, and the consequences have been devastating. We are overwhelmed with animals in dire need of rescue, rehabilitation, and care.


Rescue Animal

Hi! I’m Corona, a 19-year-old Paint gelding. I came to IHRWC in December 2020, because my previous owners were moving out of the country.  I am a big boy! I stand around 16 HH. I would love an confident intermediate rider. I'm am navicular but can handle light work. I'm good for the vet and farrier. I'm ready to jump in your trailer to go home with you today!  


His adoption fee is $500. Please think about opening your home and heart to me today!
