Enthusiastic volunteers are the key to the success of our organization
Provide a rescue horse with their very own "Field of Dreams"
Field of Dreams Horse Rescue and Adoption (FOD) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Kane County Illinois. Our mission is to save these noble animals from challenging beginnings or surroundings, nurture them back to health in mind, body and spirit, and find them their Forever Home – their Field of Dreams!
Field of Dreams mission has four main areas of focus: rescuing horses, rehabilitating horses, adopting horses and educating people about the care of horses. If you are looking for a horse rescue in Illinois, you've found the right one! Our organization is made up of horse loving volunteers who are dedicated to helping reduce the unwanted horse population.
Field of Dreams has rescue horses available for adoption in Illinois. Our goal is to find caring owners and loving homes for each of the rescues in our care. Check out our available horses or fill out the adoption application if you are ready to adopt a horse. If you are looking to spend time volunteering with horses, please fill out our volunteer application.
There are approximately 140,000 unwanted horses produced in the United States annually. Field of Dreams is working to help put an end to that problem. We work with local community agencies to facilitate the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned or relinquished horses. We accept abused and neglected equines as well as horses retiring from lesson programs, police force duty or the racetrack. We accept healthy animals donated by loving owners who, for reasons beyond their control, can no longer provide care.
We offer educational programs to help the public see the incredible gifts of beauty, kindness, and unconditional love these horses have to offer. Ultimately, our goal is to help all horses in our care find their own “Field of Dreams”
This is just one of the many success stories at Field of Dreams Horse Rescue and Adoption. There are more than 100,000 similar Checkmate stories created every year in the United States. When you make a donation to Field of Dreams, you help us assist horses like Checkmate who are in-between homes, to become healthy in mind, body and spirit. Approximately 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly toward the care of these magnificent animals. Help us in our goal of finding the horses in our care their very own Field of Dreams.
