This group is the real deal. My husband and I volunteered for several years in Colorado. We met many of the horses and watched them heal. A very professional and friendly group of people. They may be small in numbers but these people do a huge amount of work for horses coming from deplorable situations. Their facilities are wonderfully set up too.

My wife and I have followed Front Range Equine Rescue since their beginning. We have watched as they've grown from a handful of horses to having helped hundreds, if not, thousands with all of their programs. We have been long-time donors; their annual calendar gives great overview to the horses and activities. Thumbs up!

I met Front Range Equine Rescue at an event over 12 years ago. My husband and I began volunteering and getting to know the horses and help with caretaking needs. During a wildfire, Front Range rescued one of the skinniest horses I have ever seen. I couldn't stop thinking about him. We eventually adopted this sweet old gelding and let him live out his days with our other horses, safe in a barn during bad weather and with plenty of pasture turn out. We took in several other special needs horses over many years through Front Range and loved having all of them. A top notch rescue group of people very deserving of your support! They truly make a significant difference for abused horses.

Our family loved volunteering with Front Range Equine Rescue for several years. It was such a joy to meet all of the horses and learn their personalities and help with basic caretaking. We learned a lot about owner responsibility from their very informative orientations for volunteers. It was such an amazing experience to see new horses come to the rescue and receive such great care, then turn into healthy, happy animals again. Thank you for such great memories.

I volunteered with Front Range Equine Rescue for many years. They not only talk the talk, but they more than walk the walk! I met dozens of the rescue horses, some in very bad shape, and was always impressed with the comprehensive care plan for each horse to bring it back to health. Front Range has a great reputation in our community to this day with all of their dedicated work on behalf of abused horses.

Front Range Equine Rescue is a great organization with an exceptional leader. Not only is Front Range Equine Rescue great at what it does -- saving abused horses -- but it has been at the forefront of stopping horse slaughter in the United States.

I adopted a fantastic mustang from Front Range Equine Rescue about 6 years ago. I LOVE HIM! He is the best horse ever and it makes me so sad and angry to think he would have gone to slaughter if not for Front Range Equine Rescue. They have helped so many horses and done a great job with them. I can't imagine my life without my rescue horse.

Our family visited Front Range Equine Rescue several years ago, but we remember it with great fondness. Our granddaughter to this day still remembers the horses and that trip! We have supported FRER's work for over 10 years now and are proud to be supporters. They have made such a positive difference to horses that have been neglected, abused or almost sent to slaughter. Can't say enough good things about these folks!

We have followed Front Range Equine Rescue for many years now and donate at the holidays or other special occasions in lieu of gifts. Their work is exemplary and they have accomplished a great deal on behalf of less fortunate horses. They are financially sound and use their funding for its intended purposes. This is very important to me as I work in the financial management industry.

A great organization dedicated to saving abused horses. Front Range Equine Rescue is not only practical and responsible with how it handles rescue, rehab and placement of its horses, but has innovative programs to keep horses from being abused. Their work to responsibly end horse slaughter is awe-inspiring as are efforts to protect wild horses.
