The Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Department strongly encourages members of the motoring public to use common sense and to follow basic safe driving practices when driving near horse trails.
Unwanted or Neglected Horses
If you find yourself in a situation where you can no longer care for your horse, please do not release your horse into the wild of the river bottom or hills where it must fend for itself. Unfortunately, no viable food source for horses exists in the river bottom and these horses will inevitably wander into populated areas in search of food. Such treatment of horses is not only inhumane ; it is unnecessary and fully preventable. If you or someone you know is unable to continue caring for a horse or you find a horse that has been abandoned, please contact True Innocents Equine Rescue of Jurupa Valley at (951) 360-1464.
