Reviews for Equine Aid

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Equine Aid is one of those rare rescues that "has it all". Not only do they put love, care and dedication into their rescue, but it is steeped in a wealth of knowledge, sound policies and operational decisions. The result is the ability to serve each equine it takes on for the best possible outcome. No corners cut at this rescue and you know EVERYTHING is for the horses and donkeys--spot on!

I am always a little suspicious of "rescue" organizations, but Geri and her group are the real deal. I owned 2 mini donkeys and Geri helped me with their care, and eventually re-homing. Some people have a true passion in life, and clearly Geri and her husband have found theirs. I admire how they have single handedly taken on this mission to rescue donkeys and horses and provide the best care for these unwanted animals. Their dedication is often at the expense of their own personal life. I strongly recommend this rescue organization without any hesitation or misgivings. Thank you Geri for all of your help.

EA provides rescue and sanctuary for equines in need, and serves as a voice against abuse. Through the duration of my involvement, I have witnessed so many amazing creatures pass through the sanctuary gates, all of which have been offered another shot at life. I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved with an organization with as much integrity as Equine Aid.

Geri and Doug are wonderful, warm folk who clearly care deeply for all of the animals living at their facility--horses and donkeys, of course, plus an extended menagerie of dogs, cats, chickens and ducks. I've been volunteering at Equine Aid since March of 2014 and I love every minute of it. It's an oasis for me, being amid a pushy group of donkeys, all clamoring for more carrots, and being in the presence of the horses, each beautiful in his or her own way. Some of these equines have made their way to Equine Aid from sad, heart-breaking circumstances, and it's gratifying to be able to help an organization that works to ensure that they will be loved and cared for for the rest of their lives. I'm so happy to have this volunteer opportunity, newbie horse person that I am. It's such a welcoming place.

Geri and her husband love these animals like their children, and this is definitely a top notch rescue. Both of them and the volunteers ensure the animals have daily stall cleans, are brushed, their pastures are safe and cared for, and they work hard to get the horses and donkeys adopted. Also, veterinary care is taken very seriously to ensure the rescues' comfort. There needs to be more people like them in this world!

Equine Aid is a great rescue that is truly dedicated to the equines in their care. All equines are loved and valued here as well as their human care takes.

If you need a break from life this is the place. The donkeys make you so happy and the horses just want to be your best friend. Amazingly peaceful.

In 2013 a beautiful and amazing horse was rescued from the feed lot. It is without a doubt that he would have been shipped to either Mexico or Canada for slaughter. He was transported to Equine Aid where he received a complete health check and much more. Shortly after his arrival, he managed to hurt himself. It was a long and expensive, and painful road, but Geri never gave up. A sponsor decided to take on the medical costs for this horse. Through conventional medicine and Chinese Herbs, he has made a complete recovery and now hes in training. Like so many horses, Koda is full of spirit and magic.
He truly got his second chance thanks to Geri and Doug. These two extraordinary people are both a asset to humanity, they continue to restore my faith everyday by their kindness and compassion.

I began volunteering at Equine Aid last fall. This reserve is outstanding in all respects. These horses and donkeys are all well loved and well cared for. All the stalls and paddocks are cleaned daily. Clearly these animals are happy by virtue of their trust and friendliness when interacting with them. I love working there, it's sheer happiness for me!
