Our mission is to rescue and care for any unwanted horses including those that have been neglected, abused, abandoned or are at risk of going to slaughter. If the horse can be rehabilitated and adopted, we will find a loving, informed home for them. If suitable homes cannot be found, North Shore Horse Rescue has committed itself to allowing its’ permanent residents to live out their lives in a safe, stress-free environment.
Laurel Palermo and Tom Renzetti founded North Shore Horse Rescue in 2002. We started out with a small boarding facility, known as Gold Rush Farms, of about 20 horses including a couple of personal horses. In 2003 we rescued our first horse, Phoenix. The five-year old mustang mare was with foal and neglected. After educating ourselves about the abandonment, abuse, neglect and slaughter contributing to the ongoing problem of unwanted horses, we wanted to be a part of a solution. Our experience with Phoenix led our passion to eventually become a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization.
