Located in Ravenna, Ohio, this non-profit (501c3) works on donations provide medical care, proper nutrition, clean/safe housing and nurturing. The ultimate goal is to find an adoptive home - safe from food production, breeding or exploitation. An extension of this rescue work, the Amish Horse Retirement program provides a deserved respite for buggy or plow horses surrendered by their Amish owners as an alternative to sending these horses to auction or worse. Amish horses are provided medical attention and found a new retirement home.
Animal Sponsors play a critical role at Happy Trails. Many of the animals have special needs that require extensive care and rehabilitation. Supporter's donations contribute to the cost of food, shelter, and veterinary care for the rescued farm animals.
