saving horses from
abuse and abandonment
our rescued horses
have a bright future
help us rescue horses in need
by making a donation
Bright Futures Farm is a trusted, well-respected 501(c)(3) equine rescue
and sanctuary located in Cochranton, Pennsylvania.
Since 2000, our mission has been to save horses from abuse, abandonment, and slaughter.
Once a horse is rescued, we provide medical care, rehabilitation and schooling and then adopt many of them into
loving, forever homes. Our rescue also provides a permanent sanctuary to elderly and disabled horses that have
been callously discarded because they are "too old," "too sick," or unwanted.
TRUSTWORTHY AND PROVEN
Bright Futures Farm has been a trusted 501(c)(3) charity since 2000. We are accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) and have been since 2014. Being accredited by TAA means that we have proven, through independent documentation, that we are a transparent organization, use our funds wisely and provide excellent care to the horses at our facility. The TAA inspects our books and our facility several times a year.
We receive no funding from state or federal agencies. We rely solely on YOUR donations for support. Your financial support provides the food, supplements and care each horse here needs to stay healthy in their golden years, and most of our seniors live well into their thirties because of the care that you help provide.
HELP US DO WHAT WE DO BEST
AND GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE
Making a donation will allow us to continue to do what we do best...save horses that are suffering, abused, and neglected and provide long-term care to the very senior permanent residents that call BFF home. The horses we rescued from the hanging barn in 2016 were with us just five months. Because of their dire condition, it cost over $18,000 to make them healthy again. Medical expenses for the six horses from the hanging barn alone were over $10,000 and funds raised for their care totaled $8,500...well short of what was needed. As you can see, it is expensive to provide proper, ongoing care to not only nurse an animal back to health, but to keep it healthy in it's golden years. Providing just feed for one senior for one day costs $9.60. To feed just one senior for a month is $268.80. Will you provide food for a day ($9.60), one week ($67.20) or one month ($268.80) for one of our very senior seniors?
Better yet, would you like to become a monthly sponsor of one of our seniors? The DONATE button below will allow you to make a one-time donation of any amount, or sign up to be a monthly sponsor. And, please check with your employer to see if they will match your donation and DOUBLE your support. Many do.

2019 OPEN HOUSE, SEPTEMBER 15TH
BRIGHT FUTURES FARM'S
2019 ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE
Our 2019 Open House was another huge success here at Bright Futures Farm. On a beautiful late summer day, we had visitors come from not only our local area, but Eastern PA, NY, OH, MI, WV, VA, IN, NC and GA! We had the good fortune to meet many friends we had only known through Facebook - in person!
Trusted Company, daughter of Secretariat, who is normally not a social butterfly, did not disappoint her visitors and was patient and kind while posing for photos. Our gift basket and 50-50 raffles were a great success and there were many smiling faces when the winners names were drawn!
We want to thank all of the individuals and businesses who donated merchandise for our baskets or created baskets for us as well as our volunteers and guests who helped make this day a great success!
