Director - EAHFA Horse Sanctuary
We provide permanent sanctuary to equines that are unable to be placed into homes through the equine rescue community due to old age, physical ailments or behavioral issues. Working through established humane organizations, we also assist equines in dire situations and are dedicated to their rehabilitation and lifelong support. We provide a humane safe haven where these animals will no longer face the fear of cruelty, neglect or displacement for the entirety of their lives while receiving the highest standard of care.
We are located on 270 acres in Middleburg, Virginia. We are searching for a Director to oversee our current operations and further develop our strategic plans and standardized business practices.
