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!

For the past four years I have volunteered at Equine Aid. The animals always come first here because the founders are active participants and make sure that is the case. In every situation I have seen the board act to make sure that the animals have what they need and to keep them safe. Once an animal joins this rescue, they keep track of it for life. If an adopter cannot keep an animal, they bring it back to ensure that the next home is a good one. Funds are always tight. Please donate if you can.

Ethics are at the center of Equine Aid's philosophy: from using donations responsibly to providing the animals with a natural a life. Only 5% of funding was used for administration in 2015 at this all volunteer rescue. Your donations are not used to solicit more donors or fund personal interests of the board. The horses, ponies, mule, donkeys and hinnys are free to roam the acreage or choose shelter as they prefer, have access to hay 24/7 and receive health care on a regular basis. The animals not chosen for adoption have lifetime sanctuary. All training is done thoughtfully and kindly, working with the animals, never forcing them. This organization respects all animals-you won't be served hot dogs, or any other meat products, but you will be well-fed at their events. They are not perfect. But they strive to provide an animal-friendly, safe environment for every animal on the farm while they promote respect for all animals.

My equine friend referred me to Geri & Doug's organization when I found myself and my donkey abruptly homeless. Fortunately Riva was welcomed to partner up with another rescue donkey. The two bonded immediately and after a year at the santurary were placed together in a loving home.. Don't you love happy endings! I couldn't be more grateful to this wonderful dedicated couple!

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!

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.

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.
