Welcome to Mountain Oasis Animal Sanctuary
MOAS is a California 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to rescue horses and equines from abuse, neglect, abandonment, and slaughter. We also offer sanctuary for horses that are advanced in age, lame, or who suffer chronic illnesses which require lifelong specialized veterinary or ferrier care, and an Owner Surrender Program designed to prevent horse abandonment.
We are in the process of developing our most ambitious program: utilizing our rescue horses to assist survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to effectively manage PTSD, depression, and anxiety resulting from their trauma. Equine assisted therapy has been proven to reduce symptoms of residual trauma, and who is better to help a human trauma survivor recover and become empowered than an equine trauma survivor?
