Our Mission

Tara Farm Rescue was started in 1982 as a safe place for unwanted horses. Through hard work, determination, and dedicated volunteer workers, the farm has grown and expanded to house cows, pigs, donkeys, llamas, goats, chickens, dogs, and cats. When animals arrive here at Tara Farm, they are often not in great health and require veterinary attention.

Our job is to make sure these animals get the medicine, care, and love they need to get back to good health and go to forever homes. We also offer boarding, education, and party services in the pursuit of taking care of these animals, many of which are too old or sick or be adopted out.

Tara Farm Rescue relies on the dedication of our all-volunteer staff, the generosity of our donors, and the vision of our founder, BonnieJeanne Gordon, to make a huge difference in the lives of those who cannot speak for themselves.

Our mission is to simply provide love and care to creatures often denied both, and we can always use donations or volunteers, so please consider helping out however you can!


Tara Farm Rescue relies on donations of money, food, medicine, and animal services in order to maintain a healthy level of care for our animal residents. It costs $6,200 a year to care for a single horse, and Tara Farm is home to many other animals as well.

We are a registered 501c3 non-profit , meaning your donations are tax deductible.


Tara Farm is a non-profit association run entirely by volunteers. We are always looking for new helpers, whether it's mucking stalls, rider training, or help with the general upkeep of our 54 acre farm.
