Reviews for Equine Aid

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!
Equine Aid is a truly wonderful rescue. They take exceptionally good care of all equines that come into their care. The donkeys and horses get much needed veterinary care, food, patience and lots of love. This organization is well run with compassion, experience, and fiscal responsibility.
Through many years and all kinds of weather.

Doug and Geri have high standards for the care and feeding of the animals at their rescue. They also work right along with the volunteers and on occasion are up all night with a vet called in for an animal in distress. what a wonderful place for these neglected and abused equines to live out their lives in peace and security.
I have been donating to Equine Aid for about 6 years. I visit them at least once a year (minimum) to check on how they are doing. Geri and Doug love the animals, take extra special care of every one of them and give their lives to caring and protecting them. I am amazed at their dedication and long term commitment to caring for abused animals.

Equine Aid is a wonderful organization. The all the horses and donkeys are very well taken care of with love and tenderness. Doug, Geri and all the volunteers work very hard to make sure that each and every animal receives the best care possible.
I love contributing to this group! It is so obvious these animals are loved.
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.
