Horse-Angels is a unique horse rescue organization in that the owner, Sue Whitman, is a vet. She is able to care for some of the most difficult horses that other horse rescues would not be able to handle. Because of Sue's ability to care for the worst of the worst horses, her expenses are also much greater than other horse rescues in order to provide the proper vet care, meds, specific types of food, specific farrier services, additional training of horses, etc. Whereas, many other horse rescues will only accept those horses that they know that they can re-home. Sue has poured her entire heart and soul in to the horse rescue and she is one of the most amazing people I have ever known. 100% of donations go directly to caring for the horses. She gives so much to others, and even provides her vet skills to other non-profit animal organizations in her area. Not only does Sue give so much to the horses, but she also helps so many with their small animal issues providing low cost services to people who could not afford a vet otherwise. Sue is a Rare Avis...she did not become a vet to make a small fortune. She became a vet knowing that she wanted to help horses and she also cares so much for the people that she encounters from horses to small animals.

Horse-Angels is a must see and should support for horse lovers! Although it is unfortunate that there is a need for this type of organization,once horses arrive here their luck certainly changes. I can’t imagine a more nurturing environment for these wonderful animals and the care they receive from Dr. Sue is amazing. In addition, she also ensures that they are adopted into homes where they will be safe and well cared for. If you are looking for a horse, please consider adopting from Horse-Angels. If you already own a horse, consider making an donation in honor of them. Your donation will directly impact the mission and is well spent.

My husband and I are so happy that we found Horse-Angels and the wonderful lady vet that started the organization. Her love of the horses is evident in the care that they're given. We adopted a red and white paint mare from Horse-Angels that had been starved at her previous home. Dr. Sue had seen to it that she was properly fed and lovingly nursed back to health. When April was well enough, Dr. Sue took her to her own horse trainer to work with her and see what she was capable of doing under saddle. For all of her hardships, this lovely paint mare has the sweetest disposition and a desire to please that we feel like came from the love and care she was given at Horse-Angles. Dr. Sue takes special care in placing her horses, her babies, with the right people where she feels the proper care will continue and the horses will receive the love they deserve. If one of her horses goes to another home and the adoptive family's circumstances change, Dr. Sue always leaves a stall open.
