Shire Preservation Foundation

Shire Preservation Foundation Our organization has been formed for the benefit of the Shire horse and all the people whose lives they touch. We are here to keep the Shire horse from extinction.

We want the communities to know how to help our organization in growing and making it easier for people to own a Shire Horse. If you want to volunteer so you can just get your hands dirty and see if you later would like to own a Shire just call or email us and we can let you know what days would be good. Please don't let these gentle giants leave our world forever.

Hello US based Shire folks. We have raised a good bit of money lately for the Shires. Now we need to spend it. So we are looking for qualifying 501c3 organizations that match or nearly match or mission statement. If not that, they can justify how their use of the money will either help preserve the Shire breed or educate the public about the Shire.

General information

When we formed the non-profit organization, we were a group of 12 people who had contact with Samson, who saw that there was something truly special about these big (mostly) black horses. Only after we rescued Samson did we begin to realize that there were very few of the Shires left. It is generally accepted that there are fewer than 2000 registered Shires in the entire world (ALBC.usa.org) So we began talking about setting up a non-profit organization solely for the benefit of the Shires and the many people whose lives will be richer just for having the chance to know one of these most magnificent creatures. Our long term goals are to "own" our horses, currently we lease our Shires at no cost the non-profit from one of our members. We are also hoping to move to a larger farm to better educate the public about the Shire horse and have more room to raise foals, increasing the total number of Shires.
