Who We Are
McConathy Farm Rescue Team was started in November of 2014 from McConathy Farm, LLC (est. 2000) which is a recreational laid back farm setting for boarding horses and a home away from home for out of town college students. By adding a family-like atmosphere and some recreational enticements for clients who board their horses with the farm (i.e., cookouts, group vet & farrier visits, fish fries, bonfires, group trail rides, etc.), it has expanded to lease approximately 60 acres on 5 locations.
Everyone is welcome to volunteer with the rescue in some capacity and some choose to do their required community service hours with us for class or college credit.
Lisa gained her love for animals as a small child from her father, the late James E. McConathy, Jr. She has owned, ridden and rescued many ponies, donkeys, horses, kittens and puppies, even goats and a rabbit on Whites Lane since moving there in 1999.
Whites Lane is a tree lined, beautiful dead end lane located just 20 minutes from downtown Lexington, the UK campus and from Masterson Station. We are walking distance to Champaigne Run. Many UK college students come to college and bring their horses along! We have students from EKU and the horseshoe school too!
We work with local animal control and humane societies in Lexington and surrounding counties as well.
We also assist other horse rescues in need by sharing hay, grain and transportation when needed. Rescues must work together whenever possible for the good of the horses!
