Carolina Equine Rescue and Assistance (CERA) is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to saving horses from abuse neglect, and slaughter. We rescue with the intent to rehabilitate, retrain and re-home through our adoption process. Horses who are not adoptable will receive high-quality care and call CERA their forever home. We believe that education is the foundation in order to decrease the unwanted horse population. CERA offers educational classes in equine ownership and management taught by qualified clinicians. We are also actively involved in the pre-veterinarian program offered through Wingate University. Select students are given the opportunity to receive hands-on experience by working with our veterinarians, farriers and assisting with daily care of our horses.
