We are the voice of the voiceless. The compassion for the lost. The strength for the weakened.

Safe Haven Equine Warriors (SHEW) is a Maryland-based nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the humane treatment of all equines.  Our primary focus is to rescue, rehab, and rehome equines either suffering from abuse and neglect or are in imminent danger of slaughter, abuse, or neglect.

We are committed to educating the public on responsible equine ownership and care, as well as the perils equines are subject to in today’s society.

Our guiding principle is that “There are no bad horses, just horses in bad situations—each deserving of a fair chance for a better life.”


The Drawing Zoo created this video following an event inviting artists to draw the SHEW horses. The Drawing Zoo creates engaging moments between animals and artists by hosting retreats, workshops, and parties! Follow @TheDrawingZoo on FB and IG
