Pretty Horses Rescue Baja
We grew up with animals and we support this wonderful Non-Profit* cause which Rescues, Rehabilitates and Trains the horses which come to them, in many times very poor condition. They also have a menagerie of other critters which they have rescued or been given and provide a loving home for Pigs, Goats, Dogs, Cats and a variety of Birds, love those Chickens!. It is situated in the hills off the beach near Rosarito where Krystal found her first Mare and Colt who were in dire need of help. They try to find homes for all of their charges, well there are the favorites and the misfits, so yes, most!
