Colorado Horse Rescue Network is an open door horse rescue. We do not ever turn away an equine regardless of condition, age or location. We also accept surrenders of horses needing the last act of kindness if they have reached the end of their natural life or are having quality of life issues.  


Because CHRN is an open door Full Circle of Life rescue, we do ask for a surrender fee of $300 per horse. This fee is not required, but suggested. Paid surrenders can be accepted to the rescue as soon as the brand inspection is completed. If you cannot pay the fee, the horse will still be accepted but only as space and funds allow. Wait times can range from 2-14 days. Surrender fees go directly to the vet and farrier care and feeding expenses of that horse while it is with CHRN. 


Horses can always be delivered to CHRN by appointment. Horses requiring pickup will need to be scheduled as time allows. We are fully volunteer supported with transportation so your patience is appreciated. If you need your horse picked up more urgently our professional transporter can pick up your horse within 48 hours of brand inspection completion for $1.25 per loaded mile.
