A Decade of Duchess Sanctuary

It has been ten years since the gates opened at Duchess Sanctuary, and over that decade the center has transformed from an uninhabited, barb-wire laden piece of property to a beautiful, lifetime safe haven for rescued horses and donkeys.

Over the years, the population has ranged from 180 to199. The sanctuary is currently home to 196 equine – 188 horses, 5 donkeys, and 3 ponies. Our oldest residents are in their 30’s, considered elderly in horse years, and our graduated care program follows each animal through all the stages of their life.
