Shenandoah Valley Equine Rescue Network (SVERN) is dedicated to providing care and rehabilitation for unwanted, abandoned, neglected, abused and malnourished horses while educating the public in equine rescue and all aspects of horse ownership and care. It is the goal of SVERN to be a resource for our community.
In addition to helping horses in need we provide education to horse owners, law enforcement and persons wishing to learn to recognize abuse. SVERN provides a place for horses that need to be removed from their owners by Animal Control. They are given the care and medical attention they need. Once these animals have been returned to a healthy physical state they are then evaluated by trained professionals to determine what type of owner and home will best suit them and what type of training will be required. Once rehabilitation is completed horses are available for adoption. We strive to match the right horse with the right owner so that rescued horses can continue to thrive and enjoy a quality of life.
