I can't say enough good things about Safe Haven. They truly have the horses in mind when it comes to how the rescue is managed. I have seen some of the worst cases of abuse and neglect enter their sanctuary only to come out the other end as if they were never hurt or sick. The folks at Safe Haven work tirelessly to find the perfect furever home for the horses as well. They do great things all in the name of helping "unwanted" horses.

Volunteering at Safe Haven has meant so much to me. Linda and all the board have been so welcoming to me. They let me learn at my own pace and I am able to help the horses by cleaning up or whatever needs done. I also enjoyed riding lessons with Tasha! Love this place!

I have volunteered at Safe Haven Horse Rescue for the last 12 years. My husband & I started out for our 9 year old Granddaughter to have a few riding lessons!!! That granddaughter is now 22, & the second Granddaughter has had lesson from a summer camp there also. We love Safe Haven & have been enriched by the many many horses over the years that we have had the privilege to get to know & love. It's a journey that has great rewards & at times rips the heart right out of your chest, as it's all about their quality of life, & when the hard heart wrenching decisions have to be made, they are made. Safe Haven has been a safe haven for many a horse over the years, & plans to be for a very long time to come.

The folks at Safe Haven Horse Rescue are a great bunch! Their dedication and love for the horses is very obvious. All of the horses looked great, they were well fed, their paddocks were clean and they were all very well cared for, loved and had a lot of attention given time them.
The staff & volunteers were so helpful to us when we adopted our little mini horse from them.
They are a kind group of people who truly love animals and you can feel the camaraderie amongst them.

I adopted my dream horse, Tommy, from Safe Haven 3 years ago. The volunteers and staff were easy to work with and very supportive. Since then, I too volunteer when I can, and many of the volunteers are my friends. The rescue horses are happy and very well cared for.

I came to Safe Haven when I was 9 years old. Never been around horses much. I am now an intermediate rider and know so much about horses. This is an amazing rescue. Never herd of one better. I absolutely recommend this horse rescue to any person or family.

Safe Haven Horse Rescue & Sanctuary is a top notch horse rescue. The horses are brought in, vetted and safety checked and when ready for adoption, they are carefully placed with the right match. The people who volunteer are a wonderful group of people who care so much for the horses. So many horses have been saved and found their furever home. They are constantly improving their facility to accommodate more horses.
