Rivers Edge Horse Rescue & Sanctuary is a Registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit Corporation in New Jersey since 2010.  Founded and owned by Diane Romano Potocki dedicated to rescuing abused, abandoned, unwanted and slaughter-bound horses and providing them with a sanctuary where they can live out the remainder of their lives with dignity and peace at a loving and caring facility.  


No one likes COVID-19, especially not the horses! But sometimes we have to look for a bright side to things- a silver lining. We had to find a creative solution to keep up with the hay demands of our herd, which has been really difficult without our fundraising events. It got us out in the fields, hard at work clearing the brush from the fence lines and after countless thorny splinters, we have several lovely pastures which we can use- well, almost!  Unfortunately, we don't have enough fencing to open the pastures to allow the horses to graze.


If anyone feels the urge for some retail therapy, we could really use ElectroBraid PBRC1000C2-EB Horse Fence Conductor Reel, 1000-Feet (we need several), clips for the T posts and T posts! Please see the links below for the exact products we need. 

Every purchase helps get us closer to getting the farm restored and back in balance-for today and the future!

Thank you from all of the Rivers Edge Herd as well as Diane and the other humans too! If you make a purchase, please let us know via Facebook or eMail us at REHRinformation@gmail.com.

Following the recommendations of the CDC, due to the ongoing spread of The COVID 19 virus, our Easter event has been canceled. This is a very difficult time for many of us. Especially for non profits like us. Unfortunately we had to cancel all of our fundraisers which is our main source of income to care for the animals. We hope you all stay healthy and thank all our supporters we can’t do it without you. Please donate. Every dollar is appreciated. Thank Youtu
