Rescue, Rehabilitation, Re-education, Re-home

Our Mission: Rescue, Rehabilitation, Re-education, Re-home

Firefly Acres is a horse rescue and therapy / learning program founded in May 2009 in Oneida, Wisconsin.

  • Vision: While we are not primarily a riding facility, we have horses for general companionship, games to play with them, and learning tools on how to connect and learn from the horse while teaching them.
  • Goal: To reach out to area children, teens, and adults who have experienced painful circumstances and need a place to be accepted and find hope.  The horses that are brought to us find a safe haven, a gentle hand, and life purpose.  Best  of all those that come here can see in each of these horses that there is hope and healing while experiencing a peaceful environment.
  • Belief: We are based on the idea that horses and people can heal each other of emotional pain from abuse or trauma while being drawn together by their own personalities and backgrounds.  We practice Natural Horsemanship which helps with the relationship process and utilizes quietness, gentleness, and patience to communicate with the horses in their own language.  This builds trust and relationship with these magnificent creatures. Our belief  is in God and the saving grace of His Son Jesus Christ.  It is our greatest desire to serve God by the demonstration of our faith through action, by our love for Him, and the support of families.   It is our highest honor to serve children and families of all backgrounds.
  • Philosophy: Horses are very sensitive and perceptive to feelings and emotions of their handlers.  They give feedback to people to show them what is on the inside, which is the beginning of the healing process.  They support this with acceptance, teaching, and love.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  All support comes from fund raising and private donations.
