The Arizona Equine Rescue Organization, Inc. (AERO) is a highly specialized health center for rescue horses that require intensive medical care. Our average rescue usually requires about 9 to 18 months of rehabilitation before the horse is ready to be adopted. We conduct all of our rehabilitations with utmost care, and have built this organization on a strong philosophy of love and nurturing for the horses that come in. AERO is proud to be an authentic advocate for the welfare of horses everywhere, and we make sure that this idea is communicated clearly through how we treat our horses. Our dedication to the rehabilitation of horses is seen in the passion of all of our volunteers who make AERO operate - in a single year AERO can total over 7,000 hours of volunteer work, all dedicated to partnering with horses through a rigorous healing process.

AERO also maintains very strict standards for whom it allows to volunteer, since many of the horses are in nutritionally and physically delicate situations. We make sure that all of our volunteers are experts who are willing to commit at least six months to the program, but above all, we want to join with genuine horse lovers who have a heart for the organization.
