Horse rescue group launches fundraising campaign

Abbotsford-based Circle F seeks donations for shelter

An Abbotsford organization that cares for unwanted, abused and neglected horses is holding an online fundraising campaign.

The GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help Circle F Horse Rescue Society raise money for a new shelter.

The organization recently moved their horses to a new facility, and donations will go to the materials and labour needed to keep the horses warm and dry this winter.

Also needed are in-kind donations of building materials.

Circle F – located on a small acreage in the Matsqui flats area of Abbotsford – was established in 1997 with a purpose of caring for horses, old or young, who might otherwise be auctioned or slaughtered.

Horses who are ready are placed in screened, loving adoptive homes.

The organization is governed by a board of directors who are also hands-on volunteers.

Teams are set up to handled the horses’ health care and conditions, to assess horses coming into the program, and to assess placement in potential homes.

Volunteers take care of things such as the feeding and exercising of the horses, the care of the facility, fundraising and administrative tasks. Visit or call 778-858-7301 for more information.

To contribute to the fundraising campaign, visit and search “Paster shelter for rescue horses.”
