The Triple H: Help Hope Homes
Triple H Miniature Horse Rescue is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization dedicated to rescue efforts, care, nurturing and rehabilitation of miniature equine. Through the charitable efforts of our volunteers and community, we strive to provide help, hope and loving, life-long homes to miniature equine that have been seized, surrendered or have suffered gross abuse and neglect.
Alison and Steve Smith founded Triple H Miniature Horse Rescue in 2007 when Alison convinced Steve to help accomplish the vision of creating a rescue operation. Triple H exists solely because of this partnership. Alison and Steve have dedicated their property, every spare minute of their lives and their personal financial resources to care for animals that otherwise would have been slaughtered or left to suffer and die.
The rescue takes many hours to sustain and, although it’s really more work than can be reasonably expected of two people, they believe it is more than worth it. Because of their selflessness, hundreds of horses have been given a second chance at life, and hundreds, maybe thousands more, will be helped.
Located in rural North Dakota, Triple H Miniature Horse Rescue is a 24/7, 365-day-per-year commitment. Why do they do it? Simply stated it is their passion. They forego vacations and dedicate time off from their “real” jobs to nurse animals back to health. Then they provide the individual care and training needed to get them ready for adoption.
They believe every success story – every animal re-homed to a loving family – makes all the sacrifices worthwhile.
