Lori Yonts, who runs Sunkissed Acres, is a woman of incredible experience and empathy. This rescue is exemplary in its transparency, its care, its contribution to the community. This is the way a rescue should be run.

Sunkissed Acres and Ms. Yonts are wonderful! When I first met Ms. Yonts and said I wanted to visit, she said "come on up." There weren't any sketchy appointments that needed to be made only at certain times on certain days, etc. She only said, "let me know when you're close by so I can be home to meet you." Everything was transparent for this organization. She was more than happy to show me her records when I had mentioned something about donating to legitimate organizations. She introduced me to all of the animals (and people!) at the rescue, and each animal had a story: a retired Grand Prix jumper, a retired racehorse turned slaughter horse turned Olympic-level Eventer, etc. The youngest horse there at the time was twenty-five and looked amazing. The farm is immaculate, and the horses are happy and safe. That was a few years ago. I now try to make regular trips up to visit and lend a helping hand when I can. I would have no qualms donating to nor volunteering for this organization.

I have been a volunteer with Sunkissed Acres since 2008 and am also an adopter. The aminals who find refuge at Sunkissed have come from a number of unfortunate circumstances, from financial distress to unspeakable cruelty. Each and every one of them receives the best care possible, they are thoroughly evaluated for placement, and offered for adoption to carefully screened homes. There isn't a single horse that has come through the gates who is forgotten. Ever. The Director can tell you where each of the hundreds of horses placed in the past decade are and how they are doing. I am proud to be associated with Sunkissed Acres and look forward to many more years of volunteering.

Sunkissed Acres serves as an advocate for animal welfare in a depressed area of the country. Horses are treated with the utmost dignity and care no matter what their situation and many horses (and other animals) have been given a chance through the work and concern of Sunkissed and especially, Lori, who manages the operation. This is a very worthwhile organization for which to contribute and all financial resources go directly to the horses.

Lori took in a very old starving horse left at our barn. We were very lucky she made the room for this horse. A month later we went to see the old girl and could hardly believe our eyes. I love it there.

Sunkissed Acres does an invaluable service for the needy and neglected horses in the surrounding area. It is well run by a dedicated person who works well with the community.

This is a wonderful, well run organization where each horse taken in can bloom to its full potential regardless of its physical or mental condition when it arrived.

A neat and well run organization. I was impressed with the happiness of the horses there. Every horse was indivually cared for according to there specific needs.
