Since its founding in 1989, Days End Farm has gone from a small non-profit sheltering a few horses annually to a full-scale, well respected national rescue and rehabilitation facility housing 50 to 70 horses at any given time. All horses come through animal control and/or humane agencies from across Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Virginia. Some are given up voluntarily and turned over to Days End immediately; others are turned over only after their neglect and/or abuse case has been decided in court, which can take up to a year. 100% of new arrivals are starvation, neglect and abuse cases with an average rehabilitation cost of $1900-$2400 per horse each month, for the first 3-6 months. These horses almost always suffer from malnutrition, gross parasitic infestation, overgrown hooves and painfully sharp, overgrown teeth.  

After their rehabilitation, which can take many months—and after their court cases where necessary—the horses are evaluated and trained to increase their adoptability. They may need ground training (haltering, leading, tying, etc.) and work under saddle. Once they are assessed/trained, staff and volunteers work to find them permanent homes. Of the 1,955 horses Days End has rescued, 94% have been adopted out.
