We are a 501(c)(3) miniature horse rescue based out of NH. We have a very small operation at home and would not exist without our wonderful network of volunteers and foster homes.
We are run 100% by volunteers and rely entirely on donations to operate. Every single penny donated goes back into the rescue to help provide the very best care to our horses.

This is 24 year old me back in May 2015 with my newly adopted goats after I closed on the property that has become Home At Last Farm. At the time, I had no idea where this journey would take me, but I’d like to share the story with all of you as it has no ending and continues to evolve as we grow.
All I knew was something drew me to this overgrown 5 acre piece of property, the stars aligned, and I was able to get a mortgage. I started to slowly transform the land into a safe home for me and my animals. At the time, all of my animals were with me because they needed a soft landing. I needed a soft landing, too. I won’t get into anything too personal, but I had been through trauma (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and had been hospitalized on suicide watch as a teenager. Horses saved my life. They did.
As a kid growing up, my life always revolved around animals and trying to improve their lives. I spent the majority of my time either working to support my horse, with my horse, or nursing one of the many sick animals I brought home back to health.
During both high school and college, I worked for small and large animal veterinarians. I received my Bachelor's Degree from UNH in Animal Sciences and was the live-in caretaker to over 50 horses at the UNH Equine facilities.
After college, I was super broke but I knew my animals and I needed a safe place to call home. So I worked my butt off to make it happen.
Since 2015, I’ve been hard at work. I have most of the 5 acres fenced, I’ve added numerous shelters for the horses, goats, chickens and ducks. I also realized the greater purpose for the farm was to become a legitimate rescue operation. September 2018 that became reality. Home At Last Farm was incorporated & we became a 501(c)(3) mini horse rescue and tiny little sanctuary.
Horses have an amazing ability to heal, and so I encourage people who are suffering in any way physically, mentally or emotionally to come spend time on the farm. Together we will all heal and continue to build the farm's purpose. My vision for the farm is to always be a safe haven for animals and a place where people and horses can come to heal.
