I have contacted this charity and found it very easy to connect with them and talk to them. I love their dedication to a wonderful cause. I have contributed to them for years and requested that Charity Navigator add them so that others could get validation of this worthy cause.

I adopted two horses from Front Range Equine Rescue, through the president and founder, Hilary Wood. Both horses had been abused, but Hilary and her team rehabilitated them both to the point where they were great trail horses, loving and willing to please. FRER's commitment to rescue and rehabilitation is second to none. They are also outspoken regarding the plight of wild horses and burros, and are at the forefront of the anti-horse slaughter movement. Because of the aforementioned, I believe that Front Range Equine Rescue should be awarded your highest honors. Steve Neuman, Elizabeth, Colorado

Hilary is very committed to rescuing horses and defending the American mustang. She's a modern day St. Francis.

I have been a donor (and have volunteered) with this rescue since 1997. Front Range Equine Rescue is an outstanding organization with integrity, compassion, common sense, practical solutions to horse slaughter, and excellent business practices. They were the first equine rescue in Colorado to receive accreditation from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries which conducts a thorough review of financials, operations, and onsite inspection of facilities, files, and horses plus interviews with staff and/or volunteers. Front Range has grown tremendously since its beginning and works at a national level while maintaining a very grassroots perspective. I know my donations are put to use exactly where and as needed and their horses receive excellent care.

I spent two days at Front Range for research on a book I'm writing about equine rescues and sanctuaries. I've visited many fine places around the U.S. but I can say with all sincerity that Front Range stands out as a superb rescue, organization, and group of people. I was impressed by the number of rescues they take in and their adoption rate; the training and rehabilitation program for the horses, the barns and pastures, and the level of healthcare given to horses that arrive at their facility. Front Range also offers an unique education program in the summer for kids, which I was able to observe. I had the impression the kids were not only having a good time but also learning about horses, horse care, and humane treatment of all animals.

It has been my privilege to work with Front Range Equine Rescue on a number of occasions, seeing the outstanding work they do first hand, going above and beyond the usual when it comes to equine rescue. Through the expert guidance of Ms. Wood, Front Range has grown and evolved the organization in a manner that has successfully navigated the current socio-economic crisis. They have been front runners when it comes to educating horse owners as well as the general public and aiding horses desperately needing assistance. All horses are treated with kindness, dignity, and respect and those that are well enough are given new opportunities for a lifetime of love in a carefully screened and properly educated home. This is an outstanding organization and I am happy to recommend them.

Front Range Equine Rescue is a wonderful organization. The horses are very well taken care of and I enjoyed the time I spent there. I loved giving the horses affection and knew that their stalls were clean and neat whenever I left. I have volunteered at other animal shelters and Front Range Equine Rescue is definitely the best I have encountered.

Front Range Equine is one of the top equine rescues in the United States. Their innovative programs like Stop the Backyard Breeder and Trails End are making a NATIONWIDE difference. FRER is the role model for new rescue groups just starting up, and other groups looking to improve.

Front Range Equine Rescue is an exceptional organization for, about, and dedicated to the horse. If it weren't for Front Range Equine Rescue, there would be a lot more horses suffering in this world. Not only do they serve to promote horse welfare, they serve the horses in the local area as well as horses all over the United States. They have a "End of the Trail" program that assists horse owners when they have to make the heart-breaking decision that their horse may no longer be happy in this life. They have assisted countless owners financially to end the suffering of their aged horses. They also have a "castration rebate" program that assists owners in being responsible horse owners and not "back yard breeders" breeding horses adding to the unwanted horse problem that plagues our country. Last year Front Range Equine Rescue had a 'Horse Owner's Assistance" program that assisted horse owners in this trough economic time to purchas feed for their horses as well as assisting to provide needed veterinary services. Front Range Equine Rescue helps horses on so many worth-while, necessary ways!!!

Front Range Equine Rescue is a top-notch horse rescue. They are fully committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, evaluating and training horses. When a horse is ready for adoption, they do a fantastic job of placing horses in a suitable home where they will be appreciated and enjoyed. In addition to working directly with horses, they also work with people to provide educational opportunities for both current and potential owners. I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Front Range Equine Rescue for over 10 years now and find them to be the most professional resuce around by far. You can be assured that any support you give to this rescue will be well used and appreciated.
