About us


Battin Farms Equine and Soldier Sanctuary rescues neglected and abused horses from auction and through other rescue efforts. The Company works to rehabilitate the horses, provide all necessary medical and nutrition for animals to be healthy and happy. Their second mission, which is integrated into the horse rescue, is to provide therapy for Veterans and provide a sanctuary where both Horse and Soldier, can be rehabilitated through interaction together. 


The Company is prepared to introduce the following services to the market:



Rescue and Rehabilitation: Battin Farms Equine and Soldier Sanctuary provides counseling to suicidal and depressed war Veterans. They provide many activities to help Veterans rehabilitate back into society after the mental devastation of war. Veterans communicate and help with horses, in need, to help them reach outside of themselves and feel a real value in their lives. The deep emotional bond between horse and Veteran is a powerful healing agent.


In addition, Battin Farms Equine and Soldier Sanctuary rescues horses that are badly neglected and abused. They attend slaughter auctions and help save as many horses as they can from certain torturous death. Horses who reach slaughter auctions are treated, transported and killed in the most inhumane ways possible and current legislation in many states is being fought to stop these heinous acts. 


Battin Farms Equine and Soldier Sanctuary provide a way to save as many horses from being slaughtered and find new homes for the horses. They first have to be bought at auction, then quarantined and veterinarian services before the horses are allowed out with other horses. They are analyzed for the physical and mental needs, training. good food, Vet and hoof care is provided. In addition, the horses interact with war Veterans for increased mental stability and rehabilitation for both horse and Veteran. Horses must be adopted out to worthy homes and Battin Farms Equine and Soldier Sanctuary does the marketing, care of the horses and do the full adoption process for each horse.
