Need You Now Equines takes horses (that appear sound/sane) that are in the feedlots in Quebec waiting to be "processed". 

We are a volunteer group based in the Ottawa and surrounding area that receives no funding.  Horses are purchased directly from the feedlot and then go onto their new homes.  Some of these horses are registered and come with papers.  Some are former school/camp horses that have been shipped due to bankrupcy or business closure.  There is a huge variety of horses available (from heavy crosses down to ponies) to every imaginable breed. 

Time is of the essence in finding these animals homes - they have already been through the auctions, etc. and this is their "final stop" before being "processed". 

To see what animals are available and to learn more about the group please visit:

We are in the process of forming a "wish list" of needed items - blankets, de-wormers etc.

In some special cases, we purchase horses and keep them at farms until a home can be found.  To offset the costs of care, hay etc. there is a charge of $5 per day.  Should you wish to donate to offset these costs please contact us via Facebook.

Hal a OTT STB inspired me to work with this group.  He was deemed to be processed before Xmas.  He is a 15.3 former race horse.  We hope to be able to have Hal as a riding horse and possible dressage horse.
