White Angels Horse Rescue is a non for profit organization situated in the Kinglake Ranges outside Melbourne, Australia.


Our mission is to rescue neglected and abused horses, whether it be from the horse auctions, or individual people who can’t or don’t care for their horses.

Most of our horses we buy from the auctions, where they would otherwise go to the slaughter houses.

When horses arrive at W.A.R.H they are washed, rugged, wormed and immunized.
They get their teeth and feet done and live in quarantine paddocks until they are seen by our vet.
After that our rehab program is implemented.

When our team have nursed these horses back into health and they are mentally and physically able, they start their in-hand natural horsemanship education and agility program.

Once we feel that a horse is ready both physically and mentally, we wish to find that horse a forever home with someone capable of the love and care that it deserves. No horse will ever be given a time frame to be rehomed, if need be they will stay in our sanctuary forever.
