The Farm Animal & Equine Center at Nevins Farm is an animal care and adoption center for horses and farm animals.

The Center's education and outreach extends to local classrooms, summer camp programs, educational tour groups and working with animal owners in crisis as well as educating the general public about the needs of animals.

Animals for adoption

Our Equine adoption program takes in surrendered, abused or injured horses. We are the only full-service, open-door horse and rescue facility in New England and one of only a handful nationally.

In addition to providing care and adoption services for horses in need, the Equine & Farm Animal Center provides a 24-hour state-of-the-art ambulance service to New England veterinarians. To promote safety, we travel near and far to share our expertise and equipment and to teach emergency preparedness. We are also hands-on partners at major equine sporting events.  To learn more about the MSPCA Equine Ambulance Program, click here.
