Horse Health Hotline
The SC Horsemen’s Council Horse Welfare Committee offers the HORSE HELP HOTLINE to those in need of help for their horses. Its purpose is to link people with horse help facilities and programs that can offer options before the “Unwanted Horse” becomes neglected, abused, or the object of a legal seizure. It further hopes to link rescue operations to one another so that they may connect, communicate and reach out across our state to each other when help is needed. This hotline is by no means definitive or complete. It will be updated periodically as more organizations and facilities are discovered to assist horses. The initial list is comprised of statewide organizations, local area organizations and facilities, and specialty programs/offerings that may be of help.
SCHC does not conduct investigations of abuse or neglect. If you feel an equine is in need of assistance , please call the local animal control.
Please give as many details as possible when calling. Such as location of equine(s),house or pasture, how many are there, descriptions, or what is the problem. It is very important to know what county you are in for a map of SC counties Click here. As a note, some counties in SC do not provide animal control service at all; others may rely on local Humane Societies and not all have equine facilities, but may refer you to other organizations that provide help.
