The name 4R came from
the four steps of animal rescue:
1. Rescue - whether rescuing an animal from a bad situation, or rescuing an
owner from a situation out of their control.
2. Rehabilitate - the horses and other animals usually come with problems, whether
physical, mental, training issues or emotional issues. These have to be addressed.
3. Re-train - often the horses and other animals have been loved, but not trained to
a level they should be. This can make an animal un-adoptable or delay their chance
for a new home.
4. Re-home - the best part ever. To give these wonderful animals a new lease on life
and to be able to watch them blossom with a new home.
When an animal leaves for that new home it is bitter sweet. Bitter that they will be
missed at 4R, Sweet, that they have a new life ahead of them.
