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.
