Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animal Services, Animals

Mission: Our mission focuses on using a network of fosters, volunteers and sponsors to rescue horses seized by or surrendered to the Animal Control agencies of Clark County, Nevada. L.E.A.N. has been the last hope for many horses and donkeys with no place left to go. L.E.A.N. is unlike other rescue programs in that we do not have a physical ranch or sanctuary. All the horses are placed into private foster homes and cared for by the members of that house or barn. L.E.A.N covers the cost of feed, medical, farrier and other needs while the animal recovers under the loving care of its foster home. Our goal: No more Unwanted horses in southern Nevada

Results: 57 horses and donkeys rescued since our inception in 2012; more than half rehomed to loving families.

Target demographics: rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses and donkeys confiscated by Animal Control agencies.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 20 horses

Geographic areas served: southern Nevada

Programs: medical and behavioral rehabilitation, feed assistance, sterilization, and general horse husbandry education.

I am a CPA with a strong background of experience with non-profits. I do the tax compliance work for LEAN too. Because of my experience, there are many organizations I would never donate to because I can intimately see how the money is used. This is not the case with LEAN. I am a regular donor because I know my money is going to the horses and these people do this work for the right reasons. I couldn't be happier donating to a local charity for the care of animals.

It would be nice to have an email or phone contact. Your service to these lucky horses & burros is highly commendable. I want to recommend you for a charitable auction, but you need to be reached, but not by a box number.

Thank you for your comment. Our phone is at our website, FB page, and listed here at Great NonProfits. At our website, under the Contact Us tab, is our phone as well as a way to submit an email to us directly, which is allvegashorses@gmail.com. There is only a PO Box because we do not have a ranch facility - all our horses are kept in foster homes. I hope this is helpful.

I would like to recognize the L.E.A.N. nonprofit that works with rescue horses. I have never seen so many people working so many hours of their own time dedicated to the rehabilitation and placement of these rescue horses. They work so hard to bring the horses back to good health and then get them ready to ride. They are a group of knowledgeable individuals who truly care about the welfare of the animals.

I have met the people of L.E.A.N., and they are among the most passionate group of volunteers I have ever met. It takes a lot of skill and love to bring some of these abused and neglected horses back from "the brink", but with so many offering their talents and time, the job gets done...bravo, L.E.A.N.!!!!!!

I have been donating monthly to All Vegas Horses/L.E.A.N. For over 2 years and my experience with this organization is 100% positive. They rescue abused and neglected horses and have volunteers that provide a safe haven for these poor animals that were abused and mistreated by people who apparently have no heart. L.E.A.N. works miracles with these animals and it is so rewarding to see their path to healing and know that I helped in some small way. I have no doubt that my money is put to good use. These people love horses and work tirelessly to rescue as many as they possibly can. A better non-profit than this you will never find! Thank goodness they are here in our community.

When I decided to get a companion horse for my TWH I went online to search the available horses for adoption through L.E.A.N. I went to one of their "horse fairs" and got to meet some of the volunteers and learn about this great non-profit. The horse I had seen on line wasn't at the fair so I arranged to meet him. He had been seized by animal control for abuse and neglect. He was very, very afraid, most likely never rideable, and difficult for farriers. But he was being fostered and cared for by wonderful people . He and my TWH are now best buddies and with the help of my trainer; Concho has come along way. I am a proud donor for L.E.A.N. and would recommend them to anyone looking for that "special" horse.

This is an amazing organization that has stepped up in the community to address the serious issue of equine abuse and abandonment. LEAN has taken in, rehabilitated and re-homed horses with extreme starvation syndrome, physical injuries and emotional trauma. Without this organizations tireless efforts, most if not all of these beautiful animals would have been put down or sent to slaughter.
