Volunteers are important to our rescue center – providing much needed help and allowing us to properly care for our rescued Mustangs.

WHRC could not exist without our volunteers. By visiting WHRC, you are taking an active part in our rescue work and a critical stand against abuse and mistreatment of wild horses. You will help to ensure a dignified life for our horses and help sustain America’s wild heritage – the Mustang.

As a visitor to our rescue and rehabilitation center you will get up close and personal with our charismatic rescued horses and assist in real hands on rehabilitation work. We guarantee you that this encounter with horses will be like no other horse experience you have ever had.

Day Visits

A day visit to WHRC is the perfect family activity and addition to your Orlando vacation. Bringing your children to visit our center is a great way to teach them how to respect animals and treat them with love. You can choose to visit us any day of the week.

You will need your own transportation to and from our center for day visits. Day visits need to be scheduled before hand, so make sure you give us a call or send us an email to book your visit. You will get up close and personal with our rescued mustangs, and those who wish can go for a trail ride. Trail ride must be booked when your day visit is scheduled.

Our day visits are a very popular way to see our rescue center. It’s the perfect day adventure for you and your family. You will meet the horses, see how we work, see all the other animals, as well as get an overview of the plight of the mustangs in the US.

The $100 donation per person.

Volunteer

Visiting WHRC as a volunteer is the best way to help our rescue center. Volunteers are a critical part of our center and we could not function without you. We look forward to meeting you!

Everyone can volunteer at WHRC – regardless of physical abilities, there is always something to do. Volunteering at our center can be as labor intensive or relaxed as you wish. As a volunteer you will help with daily chores such as mucking stalls, daily maintenance of the horses and infrastructural improvements to stables. You will also assist in real hands on rehabilitation work with wild horses. The majority of our horses come from abusive environments and when they first arrive they are often genuinely afraid of people. As a volunteer you will play a critical part in helping these horses understand that not all people are bad.

To become a local volunteer, contact DIane Delano at 321-427-1523 or diane@wildhorserescuecenter.org.

We are located 60 minutes from Orlando where you will find Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, and LEGOLAND. Attractions close to our center include the Kennedy Space Center, a National Seashore, Wildlife Refuge, and much more.
