ABOUT US

     Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.  Eagle's Nest Draft Rehab and Sanctuary (ENDRS) is an Arkansas Non-Profit Corporation and is a Federally recognized public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code IRS 501(c)(3) Certification Letter.  ENDRS is passionate about rehabilitating neglected horses and working to end the transportation of American horses destined for slaughter across United States borders.  Our particular interests focus on educating the public about the truths of horse slaughter and helping drafts who have worked hard their whole lives to avoid the horrible fate of slaughter.  Although drafts are our focus, we are always ready and willing to help any animal in need when space at the rescue is available.
