Equine Rehabilitation Central Texas (ERCT) was formed in June of 2012 and received its 501(c)3 Federal Tax Exemption in January of 2013. In 2012, property was purchased outside of Austin, Texas in Leander. With a lot of hard work, the property was prepared for horses, a large six stall run-in shed was built, a hay and feed barn was cleaned and then the property was fenced.
ERCT was formed to meet the need for rehabilitation services for equines after rescue and seizure by other equine rescue public charities or by personal rescue referrals.
ERCT is accepting rescued horses, donkeys and mules for the purpose of temporary housing and rehabilitation. Using natural horse care strategies, ERCT is housing, feeding, providing veterinary care, and farrier services to establish stable health and welfare of the rescued equines. If professional training is needed, ERCT will contract with qualified trainers to help the horses feel safe with people and determine ride-ability. The horses that are in stable condition are available for adoption to loving forever homes.
