Racehorse Rescue Centre (RRC)
is a registered charity No.1150864 based in Carlisle, serving the whole UK. By rescuing former ex racehorses we give them a secure safe environment and the opportunity to move onto new careers once they have finished racing, saving them from possible slaughter.

We are not just a Rescue Centre We provide FREE programmes and accommodation to disadvantaged groups throughout the UK to help them develop their skills in the community such as injured soldiers, probation services, disabled, employment services, colleges and therapy for people suffering from trauma and depression. We are 100% volunteer run so any help goes direct to the horses and not on salaries.

Welcome to the Racehorse Rescue Centre, (RRC) an animal shelter and re-homing Centre run 100% by volunteers. The RRC received the Points of Light award from the U.K. Prime Minister in 2017 for the work it does with the community and the horses in it’s care. The RRC uses rescued ex racehorses to run free programmes to help build confidence and educate in animal welfare for veterans, disabled and young adults suffering from self-harming, depression, trauma, bullying, PTSD, Autism, FASD and ADHD. The Racehorse Rescue Centre is an Approved Retraining Establishment for the care of ‘vulnerable or unwanted’ former racehorses, by the Retraining of Racehorses (ROR).
