THRRO is a totally non profit Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) organisation which is run by a small committee of hard working, horse loving volunteers.
Our goal is to improve the welfare of horses in Tasmania by:
- rescuing and rehabilitating horses that are abandoned, neglected or mistreated
- re-homing rehabilitated horses surrendered to THRRO for the horses' ongoing well-being
- assisting ownvers via education, support and advice
- educating the community on the plight of neglected horses
Our aim is for horse owners to take responsibility for their own horses and look after them correctly. We provide information and support to assist owners as far as we can. In cases of real owner hardship we will offer hands on assistance as required, with the option to surrender the horse to THRRO for care or rehabilitation. Please note that THRRO does not have the resources or facilities to take in horses that are simply no longer wanted. We can help with advertising or information about trainers, but we have clear criteria for the surrender of horses into our care.
