Mission Our mission is to save and rehabilitate horses and dogs and find them loving permanent homes.  If such a home cannot be found, we will offer them a loving sanctuary for the rest of their lives.
Background Our board and volunteers come from all backgrounds with one mission - help animals at risk.  Larry and Nelda Kettles were  involved in the racing industry and therefore have extensive contacts to help provide an option for those horses who are through with their racing careers.  We also offer sanctuary for those senior or handicapped dogs who are faced with nowhere to go in their last days.
Impact Horse and Hound Rescue is proud to have found great loving homes for over 150 off track thoroughbreds and provided a loving sanctuary for over a hundred senior and special needs dogs.  As we are the last chance for several of these animals, it makes us proud to provide this option.
Needs Our needs are many, including hay and grain for the horses and feed, beds, and kennels for the dogs.  Also, monetary donations will be used only for the animals.  Every dollar goes directly to either the horses or the dogs.
CEO/Executive Director Statement Horse and Hound was created with one idea in mind - helping at risk animals.  With the help of fantastic Board members and volunteers we are succeeding in that mission.  We are providing great homes for these dogs and horses after they have been retrained and rehabilitated.  
Board Chair Statement We are proud to be accomplishing what we set out to do.  We are finding great forever homes for off-track thoroughbreds and sanctuary for senior and special need dogs.

Programs
Description Horse and Hound takes in off track thoroughbreds from the three Oklahoma racetracks.  Our volunteers then evaluate and ride each individual horse.  After the horse has completed our program, he is offered for adoption.  This is the love portion of our program.  The logic portion comes in when we evaluate the potential adopters.  They must have a love for the animal, but they must also have the logic to know if they can provide a good home for them.

Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Families
Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. Our short term success is taking in over 100 horses that might have gone to the kill lot.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Horse and Hound has successfully rehabilitated and found homes for over 90 off track thoroughbreds to date.  Our volunteers ride and retrain these horses so they can transition into great family or show horses.

Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. Horse and Hound placed a horse named Blissfully Even to a veterinarian in Colorado. Bliss is now competing in eventing and show jumping.  This is just one example of over a hundred successful placings. 
Description Horse and Hound is the last resort for hundreds of senior and special needs dogs.  We provide a loving, comfortable home for those dogs that, due to family members dying or being placed in assisted living or nursing homes, must give up their loving pets. Those dogs that, due to their age or needs are unadoptable, live out their lives here.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. In a short term scenario, we are providing an outlet for those families who cannot or do not want to provide for the pets left behind due to life circumstances.  We provide the comfort and dignity these dogs deserve in their senior years.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Our long term success will be shown when this program isn't needed, when families make arrangements for their pets.
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. Horse and Hound has successfully placed dozens of senior dogs, and those we cannot place, live out their senior years here.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. We have adopted dogs to be emotional support dogs for returning veterans.  We have also adopted dogs to senior citizens that want an older, calm dog

Comments on Programs
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments The challenges of an organization such as Horse and Hound are great.  However, the opportunities are also great.  We are proud to be a positive influence in the lives of the youth that come out to volunteer.  This is the path to changing perceptions of animals as disposable property instead of living, breathing animals to be given safe lives.
