Equihab's mission is to reduce suffering and unnecessary death of horses. We accomplish this via educational programs, guest speakers, owner support, free Blanket Loaner Bank, networking owners with resources, and directly sheltering horses.


Equihab is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2006 and based in the town of North East, Maryland. Our mailing address is The Equihab Foundation, 111 South Main Street, North East, MD 21901

Equihab is 100% volunteer based. With no employees to pay, this ensures the maximum amount of donations can go directly to accomplishing our mission.

Equihab is 100% foster-home based. We do not lease a public shelter building or public stable. Horses that must be directly taken into our care are housed at foster homes in and around Cecil County, Maryland. By keeping overhead low, money that might have gone to rent can go to helping horses.
