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.

Hi! I’m Corona, a 18-year-old Paint gelding. I came to IHRWC in December because my previous owners were moving out of the country.  I am a big boy! I stand around 17 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!

Hello Everyone! I’m Samson a 5-year-old miniature donkey. I first came to the rescue almost 2 years ago from a very loving home. My previous home gave me the name goat killing donkey. I might have had a problem with goats. They had lots of goats they expected me to protect from coyotes and instead I was more of a problem. In my defense I was just trying to play with the goats.

Anyways my home is Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County and I LOVE it here! I have decided to make a monthly news updates about the happenings here at Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County. I am very excited about this and have been talking with all my rescue pals about all the great names everyone came up with. It was a very hard choice because there was SO many great ideas but after a lot of thought I picked Straight from the Rescues’ Mouths. I picked this because I have so many rescue friends that want to help  co-host with me.
Now to the fun News update for the week.

The unpredictable weather both the warm months and the cold are making it hard on horse owners everywhere. There are horses being abandoned all over the Midwest.
