Animals

Address:

PO Box 750174 Las Vegas NV 89136 USA

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:

48 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.

LEAN 's work brighten's my view on humanity. Truly looked as if she was hit by a car and without the TLC and medical attention the horse received from LEAN she would of died. The people that work at LEAN deserve to be rewarded and a free pass to heaven.

If you are looking for a charity that blesses both horse & human, look no further. Not only is L.E.A.N. run with heart, but with professionalism and fiscal integrity.

L.E.A.N, all I can say is wow! This non - profit started out with just a handful of individuals that saw a need to do right by abandoned and neglected horses in our community. Now, 2 and half years later, that handful has grown to become an entire community of volunteers! From current and former board members , to the foster families, to trainers, to haulers, to event staff, to the all important donators (including monetary, services and supplies) alike... This organization is bringing the community together for the sake of these majestic animals that have no one else to speak for their plight! I am happy to announce that since this organizations inception, not a single horse that has been taken in by animal control has made their way onto a trailer bound for auction! Bravo everyone! Keep up the great work!

In just two short years I have watched this non-profit organization stand up and take control of the unwanted horse problem in our community. Now, not only are they helping those horses but the are helping our community with programs like a low cost geld clinic they just hosted. 9 stallions were gelded through this program. They also have an incredible networking program started that helps put people in contact with each other ie: those who need to rehome horses and those that are looking for horses. Now, to top it all off, I hear that they are currently working to create a hay bank that would serve local horse owners that have fallen on hard times to help keep their animals fed while they get back on their feet. I can't say enough about the wonderful changes this organization has brought to our community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try and get more people involved to help. They need riders and trainers to help assess the horses and keep them in shape to improve their adoptability.

All Vegas Horses/L.E.A.N is an incredible organization. The initial founders of the program saw a need in their community which was not being fulfilled and they did something about it! This hardworking group of individuals created a program to take in the unwanted and neglected horses in their community that come through animal control. These ladies take in, rehab and rehome these poor horses and they do it all around their own lives. Each one of them has their own jobs, their own lives and their own families and yet they make the time to make sure that these animals get the care and love that they deserve. L.E.A.N works solely as a non-profit and depends on their ever growing network of volunteers to make all this happen. They get everyone involved! From the fosters who are in charge of the everyday care of the horses to the farriers and vets that help fix some their problems, to the enormous amounts of volunteers that come forward to help out with everything and anything from something as simple as a trailer ride to the vet or as time consuming as helping out with a fundraiser event, these gals have brought our equine community together in a way that no one else could. Everything they do is photo documented and made public so that our community can follow along with their progress. I for one am proud to say kudos ladies!

L.E.A.N. is a very special organization because it is run without a physical space. Each animal taken in by them is fostered by a carefully selected person and given top notch care. The adoption process is a rigorous one, and only the best homes who represent the best match for all involved is chosen.

L.E.A.N. rescues abandoned horses. They find them loving homes. Countless volunteers provide medical and farrier service, as well as finding foster homes. They turn horses lives around. It is a wonderful volunteer agency of which I am proud to say I share a small role.

This group does outstanding horse rescue in the Vegas Valley. I've been following them for about a year and hope to be more active. Very serious horse lovers maintain the day to day operations.
