  • Who

    SCER-GA accepts equines who are malnourished and/or abused that require rehabilitation. We also respond to County or State agencies. When space is available retirees are accepted.

  • What

    SCER-GA provides the necessary veterinary, farrier, nutrition, time, and training to an equine that needs rehabilitation.

  • How

    SCER-GA is ran solely on donations. Every penny of every donation goes towards an equine in our care. We are ALL VOLUNTEERS!

Recent Arrival


Cheney is a 2003 Percheron gelding retiring to us from Carriage Tours of Savannah. He has a severe case of Lymphangitis in his rear right leg. While it looks horrible, Cheney is showing minimal pain symptoms and moves well.


Our Herd

SCER-GA does not specialize in one breed, we accept any breed that requires assistance. Temperment and training is evaluated and time is provided to allow the appropriate rehabilitation to occur, whether in body or spirit - or both. Visit us to meet your forever partner today.

  • Available for Adoption

    We have several horses and burros available, ranging from pasture guardian, pasture pet (companion only), green broke, to well trained. Take a look at what we have to offer and set up an adoption visit today to meet the herd.

  • Sanctuary

    A few of our herd are unsuitable for adoption. They still have a lot of love to give, and welcome visitors. They need your support!

Active Fundraisers

  • War Horse Program

    Help launch our War Horse Program for Veterans, First Responders, and their family! As humans help the horses, the horses help the humans.

  • Wheelchair Ramp

    We are continuing to raise funds to build wheelchair ramp for our bathroom so that we are able to support a wider range of visitors.

  • Tractor Fund

    A tractor is a NEED for the property but ours has gone its last go. Help us purchase a new one to meet the requirements.


  • - Elizabeth Jones

    When a horse's world is thrown into chaos a horse comes here to find refuge and peace; when a person's world is thrown into chaos they come here and find their best friend and adopt them into their family. What more could horse or human ever desire?

  • - Grace Persinger

    There are some people who do this for the attention and then there are some who do it for the passion. This is definitely a passion.

  • - Stephanie Williams

    It is a wonderful place and great people who truly care about the health and well being of the horses!
