Welcome to End of the Trail Rescue

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization 

We are the Sister Organization of Dream Catcher Therapy Center and our main goal is to rescue horses and provide them a Second Chance.  Many of our Rescue Horses are known as 'Four Legged Therapists' and assist with our Therapy Programs at Dream Catcher Therapy Center.





We could really use your support!

Our Sweet Pea is going to need some help with a medical issue.

Many of you know and love this sweet girl - she is very loved in our mental health programs.  She started coughing and we had the veterinarian out for diagnostics and it was discovered that she has a 'foreign body' stuck in her throat latch.

Denim and Diamonds

Our 'Denim & Diamonds' Annual Fundraiser has been CANCELLED Due to COVID-19.


Even though we will not be able to hold this popular event in 2020 - we could sure use your support with donations.

We have seen a significant decrease in donations due to the pandemic.


If you are in a position to help us this year we would be so grateful!!

Our Latest Rescue Case

Without the efforts of Animal Control, two horses would have died without intervention. Several weeks ago we were able to remove those two horses from a really bad situation, thanks to the tireless work of our Animal Control Officers.

These are heartbreaking cases - as a Horse Rescue we see lots of sad situations, but we are here to help make the lives better for as many horses as possible and thanks to Animal Control we were able to make a life saving difference for two horses.




Thanks to Grants & Donations we have been able to expand our arena, move our round pen and even expand several of our pen areas for our horses!

It is really looking great and we are so grateful for donations and grants that help us maintain a high level of care for all of our rescues - ❤️❤️❤️





We are excited to announce we have received an Emergency Grant through the Colorado Unwanted Horse Alliance to provide HAY to our communities on the western slope!!  We plan to be up and running next week with HAY available at no cost! 

We want to help those horse lovers that have lost their jobs and income due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  What has worried us is the hard reality that in times like these we will see an increase in abandoned and unwanted horses as many are facing financial challenges. We do not want people to be put in the horrible position of taking their horses to auction, slaughter lots or abandoning them.

The hay will be provided by local  farmers in the Montrose and Grand Junction areas - this wonderful grant will allow us to help those compassionate horse owners that want to be able to provide hay for their animals and keep them at their current location.

Please give us a call at 970-901-0502 or send us an email at info@eottr.org


This Grant will help so many!!


As these difficult and uncertain times persist with the COVID-19 situation we want to check in with all our supporters and horse lovers. We hope you are holding up with all the major changes in your lives.

For most of us our worlds have been turned upside down with the pandemic and we want you all to know we care about each and every one of you. We have heavy hearts with everything going on in our communities and the world. We are filled with gratitude for the numbers of you that have asked how we are doing and what you can do to help during these difficult times.

We want to assure all of you that we are fine at End of the Trail Rescue! We made sure that we had plenty of hay, grain and veterinary supplies for all our horses as the COVID-19 situation began to escalate weeks ago.

What worries us is the hard reality that in times like these we will see an increase in abandoned and unwanted horses as many are facing financial challenges. We want to be able to provide hay, feed and veterinary services to those in our communities that have lost income and are unable to care for their horses - we do not want people to be put in the horrible position of taking their horses to auction and slaughter lots or abandoning them.

We are putting out a temporary fund raising plea.

Our first goal is to provide support to owners so that they can keep their horses at their current location by providing hay, feed and veterinary care, as needed. Our second goal is to make room to house up to 12 additional horses here at the ranch on a temporary basis. We are committed to making this extra effort because we do not want these horses to end up at the sale barn, starved, or heading to slaughter.

If you are in a position to help - please consider a donation today, tomorrow or next week.

We Thank You in advance.
