Since 2008, we have led the efforts in west central Indiana to permanently protect horses that are sick, retired or otherwise in need of a permanent home.


Our Mission

Peacefield Equine Sanctuary exists to care for horses that need both medical attention and/or behavioral training, with the goal of making them good equine citizens. Their care will be tracked throughout their entire lives in order to ensure their permanent safety. The Sanctuary also exists to educate the public about equine care and rehabilitation, and about the politics of the abolishment of horse slaughter.

What We Do

Peacefield Equine Sanctuary is the brainchild of Elizabeth Lorenzen, the sanctuary’s Executive Director and Founder, and is a response to a need for a unified animal welfare effort for equines in the Wabash Valley area of west central Indiana. Through the efforts of the sanctuary, not only will horses be helped, but potential adopters will be educated in the skills necessary for appropriate care of the animals. Outreach efforts geared at developing awareness of equine abuse and neglect will also be initiated. 

Please find information on our website about the many different opportunities available for contributing to our efforts to help the equines of the Wabash Valley. Consider volunteering your time at the rescue, fostering or adopting a horse, or donating money or supplies. If you are a member of a group and want to arrange for a speaking engagement or a group volunteer activity, please do not hesitate to contact us.
