I have loved horses all my life and as I can't afford a horse right now, I choose to help all the horses at LCAR. Everybody volunteers their time, no one is paid so I know they love the horses they are helping. I have seen the horses come into rescue in bad shape and after loving care given by the volunteers, be adopted out to great homes.

The people who own this rescue have hearts as big as houses. The animals seem to feel at home here, and the facilities are constantly being improved. I am proud to be a volunteer for LCAR.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Implement a Paddock Paradise system of putting the horses on a track system and protecting the trees and soils.

I have been lucky enough to visit Linn Rescue in person. They have horses in all stages of life, and those that have been recently brought in show hope in the eyes of each and every horse. They are once again loved and being treated as they majestically should with good food, clean water, clean stalls, fresh grass, and lots of love. Linn Rescue gets some of the worst cases of abuse, and have so much love for each one that arrives. They have a great bunch of people who work very hard.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would change nothing excep to get them more money so they could continue to provide more support for those horses that need it.

As a hands on "verified" equine rescue and sanctuary, LCAR is a "place of healing". Abused and neglected horses need a place to heal both physically and mentally, that place is here. Each horse is treated as an individual with individual needs. A group of dedicated volunteers see to the needs of the animals, everything from clean stall to clean horses. The re feeding program that has been developed for the starving rescued equine has a very high success record. Help this very worthy rescue help the horses in need. Its all about the horses.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Donate more to allow more animals to be rescued.

My husband and I have been volunteers for over 2 years. We do it because of our love of animals. LCAR is a very caring place for the abused and mistreated horses that have been seized by the Sheriff. Everyone is volunteer and works very hard to help these horses have a better life.

LCAR has provided our community with an extremely valuable service. This organization and its wonderful volunteers tend to a large number of animals each year. They take horses (and many other animals) that are in serious states of medical decline and neglect. The animals are then professionally assessed and a recovery plan is developed and progress monitored.

Once these animals are brought back to stable health and weight they are worked with and assessed. They often become eligible for adoption. The animals for adoptions go on to be 4-H horses, companions, trail horses and endless other ventures. But without LCAR many of these animals wouldn’t have a future. Instead they are able to become healthy, happy and LOVED companions.

OUTSTANDING WORK LCAR!!

I became a volunteer at LCAR when I moved to Oregon almost 2 years ago. It is a way of giving back to all the horses I have owned and loved. No one is paid for anything, work or donations. We get nothing from the county or state to support the horses that are siezed and all the medical and feed is a gift to bring them back to health. Everyone gives their all for the horses. Many are permanent residents as they have medical issues, but we give our all to make their lives happy. It is very rewarding work.

Because this organization has no paid employees, 100% of everything donated goes back to the rescued animals. It is great way to know your donation will be used entirely for the reason you wanted to give it, to help the abused and neglected animals. The animals are treated with loving hands on care, each one has its own special needs. Give from the heart and help a "VERIFIED" non profit organization save the lifes of neglected horses and give them a second chance at life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally experienced the joys of rehabilitating a wounded, starving horse and watched it regain its beauty and health. It is very rewarding to now see him run happily across the field. Thanks to dedicated people at LCAR.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Donate more money to help with additional horses in need.

I was looking for a way to give back to my community when I came across Linn County Animal Rescue's website. The open house gave me an opportunity to tour the faculty. Its very impressive to see so many horses looking so happy and healthy after seeing their before pictures. The dedication shown by the founding members impressed me so much that I decided to become a volunteer. Giving my time to a rescue which is focused on my passion, Horses, meeting like minded people and working towards a common goal; Has been a wonderful experience!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the transformation from an underweight, lackluster horse to a healthy and happy animal.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting all the caring people who donate their time.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful and dedicated!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a larger facility with a veterinary clinic and trainer kept on site.

Ways to make it better...

more people step forward to volunteer for the many fundraising events needed.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the community involved.

One thing I'd also say is that...

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

I found out about the Linn County Animal Rescue when my daughter decided to do a 4-H presentation about the rescue. After attending a volunteer meeting we immediately became volunteers ourselves. I was suprised to learn that the organization is the only one of its kind in the state of Oregon and they rely soley on donations for funding. They take in neglected and abused horses seized by the sheriffs department, bring them back to good health, and try to find approved loving homes for them to be fostered or adopted. These horses often have special needs when they come to the facility. I have witnessed first hand how local veterinarians, farriers,volunteers and businesses donate their expertise, time and money to help. It is amazing to watch a starved, scared horse come to the facility and realize that it will be cared for and fed on a regular basis. My daughter and I are proud to be a part of the Linn County Animal Rescue.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I see all the donations made to the rescue go straight back into the care and feeding of the horses.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have people on a waiting list to adopt horses rather than horses waiting to be adopted!
