Welcome to Saffyre Sanctuary, the most unique horse rescue in the country!  Please continue to visit our site for new updates about our organization and the lives we save! 


Saffyre Sanctuary, Inc. was incorporated in June 2009 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation,

TIN #27-0333811, and has been certified by the IRS as a tax-exempt charity.  All donations

made to Saffyre Sanctuary are fully tax deductible as allowed by law.


Saffyre Sanctuary, located in Los Angeles, California, is a horse rescue and rehabilitation program that cares for horses that have been abandoned, abused, or neglected.  By allowing them to rediscover their true nature, we provide every opportunity for them to experience the possibility of enjoying a second career, or offer them a well deserved retirement due to soundness issues, age, or owner hardships.

COVID-19 Hardship Matching Grant

Help us support our horses and volunteers during this time of need.  May 5, 2020!

In an effort to provide immediate aid, Giving Tuesday announced #GivingTuesdayNow, which takes place on May 5, 2020.  #GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for people around the world to stand together in unity and use their individual power of generosity to help nonprofits in need.

Every day, our committed volunteers work to support the community we serve. Now, we need your help. Our organization is committed to maintaining its financial stability and providing the day-to-day necessities for our resident sanctuary horses during the corona virus crisis. With the loss of employment, donations have decreased significantly. With everyone on a lock-down, we are unable to bring in new volunteers to train, thus overburdening the few regular helpers allowed on the property. Our educational fee based programs that we provided though Airbnb have been cancelled. Our revenue and labor stream has all but dried up, but the horses still need to eat and be cared for.

We kindly ask that you join us in supporting our dedicated volunteers in helping them get the much needed supplies for the horses they love and care for.  Your gift will help provide immediate financial support so they can purchase essential food, bedding, and other supplies. To contribute to our impact, GoFundMe will also make a $1,000 matching grant to qualified nonprofits that raise at least $1,000 with us.

and give whatever you can.

We proudly present the official web site for our documentary, book, and accompanying unique workshops, which brings the essence of "Changing Horses" directly to you!  Experience how horses can change you, so you can change the world.
