About SHEW


Saving lives, One at a time

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 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.

SHEW is a pillar of the area, helping with countless outreach events and community assists.

Safe Haven Farm has been involved in rescue for more than thirty years. In 2018, SHEW took the next step and gain 501(c)(3) status. Since then, SHEW has assisted more than 50 horses, through community outreach and networking, through direct rescue from the slaughter pipeline, or through owner surrender. The vast majority have been placed in loving, adoptive homes.
