Your Donation Makes a Difference

The Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County was founded 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.



Rescue Animal

Hi! I’m Corona, a 17-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 16.2 HH. I would love an experience beginner rider to help teach. I'm am navicular and 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 $1,000. Please think about opening your home and heart to me today!

I am Jessica the Vice President and Facility Director of Illinois Horse Rescue of Will County. I was extremely lucky to be born into a family of animal lovers. I am third generation horse lover and raising my beautiful daughter to be fourth generation. I could not image my life without animals and HATE to see one suffer. There is no better place for me to be then here at IHRWC! 

I sit staring at my computer wondering how to fundraise and bring in donations. So far all but one of our fundraising events have been cancelled for 2021 including our Help a Horse Day Fundraiser. I will be honest some days I hit a breaking point and just ugly cry.
