Rescue Groups

Home » Contact » Rescue Groups

The organisations listed below are able to help with equines (horses, ponies, donkeys), and may be a better contact for those outside HRA’s area (Sydney and surrounds).


Their mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, re-educate and rehouse horses in need and are located in Glen Oak in the Hunter Valley in NSW.



Their main goal is to “promote the Standardbred horse in equestrian activities beyond their lives in harness racing and to find homes for them when they finish their racing careers”. They rehome horses throughout NSW.


Located in the ACT, this organisation assists horse owners who are struggling in looking after their horse(s) or will help find new homes for horses.


Project Hope operates in the Melbourne area of Victoria. They have advice on finding homes for and looking after horses and ponies, and what to do during times of natural disaster.




The GSDS is located at Glen William which is around 30 kms south of Dungog in the picturesque Upper Hunter Valley. They offer shelter, food, refuge and care for abandoned, neglected, mistreated or ill donkeys.


HRA is not affiliated with any of the above orgs. We provide contact details for them only as an option for those seeking to help horses, not as an endorsement.

If you run a rescue organisation able to help horses and want to be listed, or you are listed and do not want to be, then please contact HRA.
