Sunrise Animal Sanctuary & Therapeutic Equine Center (SASTEC) is a 501c3 non profit.  SASTEC was started in Aug 2017 by Jason and Jessica Beatty when they started rescuing horses from a kill pen in Louisiana.  1 horse quickly became over 20 and their dream of doing a nonprofit sanctuary was born.  Both Jase and Jess have always had a love for animals, especially the underdogs and caring for animals that have been neglected or discarded has been a very rewarding (and sometimes heartbreaking) experience. In 2019 Equine Psychotherapy and Therapeutic Riding was added to better serve the community.

Mission Statement: Sunrise Animal Sanctuary & Therapeutic Equine Center believes in a world where there is respect and justice for all living beings.  Our mission is to rescue farm animals and give them love and lifelong sanctuary, rehabilitate the abused, facilitate rescues for other individuals who can offer a home, and advocate for animal rights and educate the public.
