Reviews for Hope Equine Rescue, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

We adopted our Valentine from Hope Equine. Dani, Wayne and their volunteers put their heart and soul into caring for the horses that they rescue. It is evident when visiting their facility that they truly love the animals. The facility is always clean and the animals are well taken care of.

My daughter has been volunteering at Hope since July 2015 and in these few short months she has learned so much. From general horse care to showmanship and many things in between. Since being involved with Hope we have adopted our own horse who was severely under weight and ate up with muck itch. The owners of Hope have been very supportive and have helped us with everything we've ever asked. Without them and all the many things that my daughter and I have learned from them I don't think we would've been able to save our sweet horse. They are absolutely a true blessing to these poorly neglected horses and always look out for what is best for them.

I went to buy this old horse trailer and had to go out in the middle of nowhere! When I got there they asked me if I wanted to take this horse too because the other horses were picking on him. I took this little, malnourished, tri colored Hackney named RJ. Come to find out he was a "cribber" and had already had over 3 homes in his apx 2 years of life. I already rescued a beautiful Florida Cracker Broodmare named, "KIT" and I really wanted to put them together but poor KIT had already been through enough breeding babies for people who would just take them away so I didn't want to get her "preggers" again. Well, HOPE EQUINE TO THE RESCUE! They were just fantastic first of all for accepting "RJ" and for the very unique way they "gelded" him. The veterinarian, well, I just can't say enough about him. He was very friendly, funny and caring. His technique left my RJ with hardly a drop of blood loss, no infection whatsoever and RJ was up and walking no problem...the next day. I read their rescue stories every day and am touched to tears at the work they do.

When I heard about a particularly horrific case of horse abuse this October 2012, the mare was in a lot of trouble, I started to follow her progress after her rescue. She was taken in by Hope Equine Rescue (1200 Dixie Dr, Auburndale, Florida 33823) and I gladly donated funds toward her recovery. She could not have been taken to a better farm. She found herself starting to get her 5 year old life back. There were 2-3 times when they thought her injuries would take her to the Rainbow Bridge. She fought. Hope Equine fought. Their wonderful Vet fought. You can't buy this kind of compassion and dedication. This group organizes free gelding clinics, low cost equine vaccinations, equine health seminars ,demonstrations and community outreach activities not to mention the constant care all of their current herd of rescued horses. They deserve all of the recognition and support there is out there.

These people go out of their way to help animals . If they hear of a animal in need they do not hesitate, they jump in and do whatever needs to be done. If there were more rescues like Hope then we would all know that the abandoned and sick animals were in good hands.
