Our Mission

Our mission is to provide aid and sanctuary to abused, neglected, abandoned or donated horses that come to us in need.  Work with law enforcement and other agencies in their efforts to rectify situations in which horses are in peril.  Provide horses in our Sanctuary with needed medical care, proper nutrition and a health plan to restore them physically and mentally for a new life.  Continue educational and fundraising efforts to both help us support our rescue efforts and to promote awareness of issues involving neglect and abuse in our area.

During their rehabilitation, horses will learn to begin to trust once again by living in a sanctuary free of fear, hunger and human caused pain.  Once rehabilitated, we will strive to find them a special home with people who will give them a new life where they will thrive with loving care and can live their life with dignity.  We believe that by providing a network of support and basic equine educational resources for humans, we can avoid the unnecessary suffering and unfortunate fate that many horses endure.  We want to do more than care for the horses who are suffering...  we want to find a way to break the cycle of abuse and neglect!  Together, we will make a difference in the life of a horse!

Adopt A Horse

Adopting a Horse... 

You CAN make a Difference:

Adopting a horse is an act of selfless love.  It's not always a sound "business decision", but it is one of the best things you will ever do! "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." ~Winston Churchill    Words to live by!  We believe that rescue horses are special.  Many have endured untold circumstances, but their ability to forgive and move forward is miraculous.  As with any relationship, it may take time to address past issues and earn that respect and trust but once that relationship is forged, it is a special unbreakable bond that will last a lifetime.

"A Fun Way to Donate without Opening your Wallet"

 "Shop for your Cause". We are a way for people to help out their favorite causes without having to open their open wallets. You can donate by taking very simple daily actions. Click Here to Donate to Missouri For Get Me Not with out opening your wallet, Plus it is fun to do.

It takes all of us working together as a community to make a difference.  During these difficult times, people can struggle financially to meet the needs of their horses.  Horses must have grass or quality hay and clean fresh water at all times.  Horses who do not have adequate water can colic and/or become dehydrated and die in the warmer weather.

Consider donating a bale of hay to a neighbor's horse in need or donate hay or money to the sanctuary to help us make it through the winter.  A large round bale is around $50, but anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated!  We feed roughly 8 large round bales of hay per week.

Together we will make a difference in the life of a horse!

We have several horses that are available for adoption at any given time and continue to get calls daily about horses and owners needing help.   Without support from concerned citizens and our community’s support we could not continue to help horses that come to us in distress.  We have no paid employees, we are an all-volunteer rescue and sanctuary.  All funds donated are tax deductable and 100% of donations and proceeds from our fundraisers go directly to feed and care for the horses in residence here.   Your concern and support is imperative as we strive to help those horses that have been ‘thrown away’ or in need of rehoming.

We invite you to come visit our facility, we love visitors and enjoy introducing the horses in residence here.  Thank you for visiting our website….hope you find it informative, but if you do have further questions, please contact us at any time either by e-mail, letter or phone.

Our Motto:    To make a difference – one horse at a time

Connie Hendrix, President


At MFMN, we have to believe that we can do more than just care for those horses who are suffering.  Our goal is to provide a network of like-minded horse lovers, to help educate and prevent the suffering 

Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment where horses can heal emotionally and physically.  Where they can transition to the next phase of their life – as a permanent resident here or in a pre-approved forever home.

To provide a forever home to elderly or handicapped horses where they can live and die with dignity.

Work to educate the community about proper care of horses and work with them to provide this care.


To continue helping as many as we can – as space and funds allow -  and to work every hour of every day, 7 days a week to making a difference in the life of the horses that come to us in need.
