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.

If you want to know that your donation is used efficiently and directly for the abandoned, neglected and abused horses you want to help, this is the right organization. L.E.A.N. has an extraordinary team of folks who make sure the horses are taken care of properly from finding foster homes to medical attention. You only have to review their website to see what outstanding work this organization does.

I began to follow LEAN years ago when I noticed a story about Captain Jack Sparrow whom was found wandering the desert after being dumped by some heartless person. I believe he had a foot injury as well. 2 policemen stayed with him and gave him water until he was picked up by animal control. LEAN steps in after animal control has had them for a while. They have accepted some very sad abuse cases. Wonderful people from around the valley donate their time and resources and even house the horses free of charge. Donations are used for feed and medical treatment needed to rehab the horses. They do great work. I love to see the progress these horses make and the happy endings these animals get to experience. Anyone who has owned a horses knows they have huge hearts when love is given to them. LEAN. Thank you for all the work you do for those who need the help.

I have been following the work of LEAN for the last couple years on Facebook. I admire the work they do and hope to someday assist. They are making a huge difference for neglected and forgotten horses, offering them a new life with the love that they so deserve.

I am a L.E.A.N volunteer and all I can say is how honored I am to be a part of this community. That's exactly what L.E.A.N is, an entire community coming together to assist these horses and burros in need. From the smallest donation to those that put in countless hours of work and dedication (the board members, all of the volunteers like the fosters,the training team, the tack team, the local show's that choose L.E.A.N as a beneficiary, the event team, the transport team, the education team, the grooming team, the media team, and the various equine health teams that chip in) this truly is what community is all about. I am very proud to be surrounded by such incredible people that care so much about these animals. Keep up the great work everyone!

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!

I've seen first hand the amazing amount of medical care that goes into these as horses, as we were lucky enough to have one at our barn. The horses receive everything they've been missing. Dental care, wound care, hoof care, skin care, food, attention, rehabilitation and training. They are matched with just the right rider and home only when the animal is whole again. This is an amazing network of people and I am proud to support them with every event I host.

This LEAN team of volunteers are noticeably awesome. The passion and care they make available to abandoned horses is truly commendable. It is great that our society has this capacity of giving so many horses quality of life.

This is a group of people that take time away from their lives to give something back to the community.
A community is judged by not only their appearance, but also by their compassion. L.E.A.N. group goes way out of their way to grasp ways to help horses that get caught up in situations where they can not help themselves. The L.E.A.N. team shows passion for horses and they help one another help these wonderful animals. Many horses have been given a better chance at a comfortable life thanks to the L.E.A.N. Team. This is commendable.

I am a student in high school in Las Vegas. To graduate, I need to volunteer at a charity and I have spent many hours helping LEAN at their tack sales and events. They are very professional and I enjoy working with them. Their program has helped 50 horses so far and I'm proud to be part of LEAN!

I was fortunate to witness the birth of L.E.A.N. and see in person, some of the outstanding results of many people's dedication for horses. I enjoy following the pictorial history of each rescue and hope that more people will be influenced to get involved. L.E.A.N. was borne of the fiery passion and selfless love of horses that it's founder discovered in herself years ago. I am inspired personally by this passion and also that of the fosters and volunteers that are L.E.A.N.!!
