Nonprofit Issues:

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.

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!

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.

The hearts & hands of LEAN give more to horses than any other organization with which I have been involved!

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.!!

I have been following this organization since it's inception, and I wish to express my admiration for the selfless work these men and women have done for abused, neglected and abandoned animals. Not only have they saved many lives, and improved the quality of life for many others, they are providing a community service and working with Clark County to reduce the cost and complexity of dealing with these animals.

The genius of their plan is to spread the load out to as many people as possible. Can volunteer a little time or a little money great, or if you're a major benefactor there is room for you too. Also this method can be replicated anywhere as you don't need a building, land, storage, vehicles in the name of the charity, the people involved provide these things.

Highly motivated, highly ethical, and highly effective, too bad there isn't a 5-star+ rating.

The pictures say it all....what time, proper care, and love can do for an animal in distress. This rescue takes care of those they can help in the best manner possible by giving each horse all they need - not taking in too many and spreading the care too thin. They are being responsible with the public's funds and making sure their work is transparent. You can see exactly how your donation or manpower is helping through the photo chronology provided for each horse. It takes many hands to obtain these type of results so quickly and so successfully. They obviously have a diligent, committed Board and passionate, hardworking volunteers.

Fantastic horse rescue. LEAN saves starving, unwanted and injured horses in and around Las Vegas. Medical care, a safe boarding facility ( donated), farrier care and training are all provided to re-home horses in to safe forever homes. All monies raised go to caring for the horses.
