Teller County Animal Rescue (TCAR) was a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help abused and neglected horses in Teller and Park Counties, Colorado.
Through education and information, TCAR wanted to help horse owners properly care for their horses to avoid the abuse and neglect situations that require rescue intervention.
As of July 2013, TCAR has reduced its operations. Therefore we’re focusing our resources on a few select animals in need. We’re not accepting new rescues from the public at this time.
Thank you for all your support over the years.

Working with the Teller County Animal Control, Park County Animal Control, and local veterinarians, TCAR restored over a dozen horses over the last few years.
Horses that arrived at TCAR typically score below a 2 on the US horse-scoring scale, which means they are little more than skin and bones.
Through the TCAR treatment program, it was possible to restore such horses back to health, allowing us to adopt them out to new homes. But in some cases, continuous treatment is needed, and the horse had to live out its life at TCAR. In the end, these ongoing costs combined with a total lack of economical support from Teller County forced TCAR to stop offering its services.
