Interesting People #65: Sharon & Danny Burrier of Rocky’s Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation

My horse adventure continues with my third married couple podcast!  Sharon & Danny Burrier run Rocky’s Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation outside of Thurmont. We chat about the surprise start of their rescue, the joys of every animal they help, and how they met!

We go into detail about the trauma of their horses, donkeys, and mules. This was a very eye-opening interview for me. They were also kind enough to deal with a few newbie horse questions too.

Rocky’s Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation is a 501c3 non-profit horse rescue ( EIN# 46-5656223) located in Rocky Ridge, Maryland. We rescue equines from all over the United States to give horses, donkeys, and mules a soft place to land after being abused, neglected, or thrown away at an auction to the highest bidder. We also assist in helping horse owners find a new home for their horse if we are unable to take them to the rescue.

Our goal as a rescue is to rescue them, evaluate them, rehabilitate them, and find them forever homes. This process can be easy or difficult depending on the needs of the animal rescued. Many of our equines are adopted out to live their lives happily in their forever home.

However, some of the equines we rescue can’t be homed and these equines become our lifers. The Lifers continue the process of rehabilitation at the rescue while they live out their lives.

National Night Out was amazing!

I got challenged to check out all 4 locations for the Frederick Police Department National Night Out. I got 3 out of 4. This is my story.

Hill Street Park with Office Quintin!

Next up was Carrollton Park with Officer Long! This spot was packed!!!

The Foxie G Foundation

On September 14, 2012, The Foxie G Foundation was established to honor the memory and enjoyment of the life of a phenomenal racehorse named Foxie G. This 501(c)(3) provides rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming and sanctuary for Thoroughbreds, whether off the track or not. Through our adoption program, these horses are given the opportunity to find new homes and often a new career.

In addition to the horses, felines could not be forgotten. The need for low-cost spay/neuter, TNR and adoption programs has increased substantially with the economy and rise in outdoor and feral cat populations. Through public education, affordable veterinary services and matching cats and kittens with forever homes, The Foxie G Foundation can have a direct hand in offering a positive solution to a rapidly growing issue.
