Welcome to the Mustang and Wild Horse Rescue of Georgia. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a program for wild horses captured by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse roundups. We are located in Georgia in the Canton area. MWHR is committed to providing a safe haven for previously owned mustangs and wild horses that are no longer wanted by their adopters or those who have been abandoned, abused or neglected by their owners. MWHR gentles and rehabilitates the horses they rescue to so they can be successfully re-adopted by new owners. MWHR’s goal is to obtain land in the near future to provide a sanctuary for unadoptable mustangs. It is also devoted to raising public awareness of the plight of wild horses and burros and why saving these Living Legends is critical to our nation. MWHR hopes to inspire others to become involved in their worthy cause. MWHR is run entirely by volunteers; donations and interest are always welcome and greatly appreciated. For more information about MWHR and for our mission statement see our “About MWHR” page.
Feel free to drop by and say hi at any of our upcoming events posted on the MWHR calendar!
Our 3rd Annual Tack Thing Event and Silent Auction is coming up on July 6th and 7th so mark your calendars! Come out and shop or you can purchase a booth to sell used tack or promote your business (horse related products and/or services). If you don’t have time to sell your items but would still like to support MWHR, you can donate horse related items (tack, riding clothes, blankets, etc) and since we are a 501c3 non-profit organization you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. For more info on purchasing a booth or making a donation, email Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org

Look at our little Smoochie transforming into a dressage star
So proud of this amazing mustang!!
Happy Adoption Day to Midnight and Michele.
We got to check in on Midnight last week and he’s doing great in his new home
Thanks to all the hard work from our volunteers, we had a successful yard sale fundraiser last weekend bringing in $900.00 for MWHR. We work hard but definitely have some fun too!
It’s been a busy couple of weeks so we’re a little behind on updates but wanted to give a big “thank you” to all our volunteers who came out for the April Work Day. We got lots of clean up done in the pasture, fixed some fencing, and got some fertilizer down on the pasture before the rain came. It was a beautiful day and the horses got some extra love from our young volunteers too.
Check out this great article about mustangs in the latest edition of Southwest Georgia Living Magazine. We appreciate their focus on the hard working ladies of Georgia that are helping find homes for these wonderful horses.

MWHR is very happy to announce the adoption of Smoochie. Congratulations to his adopter, Prudence Pitcock of Rome, GA. We know that Smoochie is going to love his new home on 30+ acres and we look forward to seeing this pair in the future at some dressage shows and maybe even making an appearance as a mustang ambassador for MWHR at some of our events.
MWHR would like to give a very special thank all of our generous 2017 donors! Without you all we could not continue on our mission of rehabilitating and re-homing these wonderful mustangs.
