Georgia Equine Rescue League

The mission of the Georgia Equine Rescue League (GERL) is to help find solutions to the growing problem of starved, abused, and neglected equine in the state of Georgia. Specifically, they work with the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) Equine Division and other law enforcement agencies to promote enforcement of equine protection laws and to provide support to them when horses are taken from irresponsible and abusive owners.

This support includes providing feed, hay and other supplies for the four GDA equine facilities where horses are taken for care and rehabilitation after being removed from an abusive situation. They also provide foster homes, sponsor castration clinics, provide speakers to educate the community, conduct law enforcement training meetings and help find permanent loving homes for horses that have been rehabilitated.

They need volunteers to join them as they spread their message across the state. Volunteers can be involved in a variety of ways.
