About JHAR

Mission Statement

Our mission is to Rescue, Rehabilitate, Retrain & Permanently Rehome horses that have been abused, abandoned, neglected or are otherwise at risk. As we educate the public about the care and treatment of animals, provide emergency services and offer sponsorship and adoption opportunities to those who wish to be a real part of a horse’s life and well being.  


We would rather work with a limited amount of horses that go on to live happy lives, by offering the care and nurture required to accomplish that goal, than pen horses who may remain at risk in the long term.   

Who We Are & What We do!

As of July 2017 JHAR provides care and rehabilitation for seventeen horses on a 5 acre ranch on the beautiful Mesa close to Joshua Tree, CA, the private home of our generous founders Joe & Melinda Allen.


ALL our horses are safely corralled and loved by volunteers and the tireless efforts and generosity of the "Allen's"

We provide individualized rehabilitation and retraining programs for "at risk" and owner surrendered horses including but not limited to: 


Quality food, shelter, veterinary & farrier care, training and day to day, love, care and incidentals for successful permanent adoption.  

  • New owner adoption screening to ensure successful sponsorship and or permanent re-homing  
  • Provide long term Permanent Residence for animals that are not suitable for rehoming (limited to our current PR’s.) Offering horse sponsorship opportunities to those who want to love and care for horses who must stay with us long term.  
  • Support and work closely with other rescues and the community to provide rescue services for animals in emergency situations.  
  • Whatever it takes!

How We Do It!
