It's a place where mistreated and neglected horses get a second chance. The RVR Horse Rescue is the result of deeply rooted compassion for animals in need of love and care.
Shawn Jayrow invested all she had into buying a huge tract of land in Riverview to nurse horses back to health, and find them good adoptive homes. Her non-profit charity has 60 volunteers and responds to calls for rescue from law enforcement and citizens.
Now more than ever, calls are coming in to rescue horses from owners who cannot afford to take care of them in a bad economy. In fact, many animal rescue groups are feeling the strain.
