Nonprofit Issues:

Animals

Address:

PO Box 750174 Las Vegas NV 89136 USA

Mission:

Our mission focuses on using a network of fosters, volunteers and sponsors to rescue horses seized by or surrendered to the Animal Control agencies of Clark County, Nevada. L.E.A.N. has been the last hope for many horses and donkeys with no place left to go. L.E.A.N. is unlike other rescue programs in that we do not have a physical ranch or sanctuary. All the horses are placed into private foster homes and cared for by the members of that house or barn. L.E.A.N covers the cost of feed, medical, farrier and other needs while the animal recovers under the loving care of its foster home. Our goal: No more Unwanted horses in southern Nevada

Results:

48 horses and donkeys rescued since our inception in 2012; more than half rehomed to loving families.

Target demographics:

rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses and donkeys confiscated by Animal Control agencies.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

20 horses

Geographic areas served:

southern Nevada

Programs:

medical and behavioral rehabilitation, feed assistance, sterilization, and general horse husbandry education.

I am a student in high school in Las Vegas. To graduate, I need to volunteer at a charity and I have spent many hours helping LEAN at their tack sales and events. They are very professional and I enjoy working with them. Their program has helped 50 horses so far and I'm proud to be part of LEAN!

I was fortunate to witness the birth of L.E.A.N. and see in person, some of the outstanding results of many people's dedication for horses. I enjoy following the pictorial history of each rescue and hope that more people will be influenced to get involved. L.E.A.N. was borne of the fiery passion and selfless love of horses that it's founder discovered in herself years ago. I am inspired personally by this passion and also that of the fosters and volunteers that are L.E.A.N.!!

I have been following this organization since it's inception, and I wish to express my admiration for the selfless work these men and women have done for abused, neglected and abandoned animals. Not only have they saved many lives, and improved the quality of life for many others, they are providing a community service and working with Clark County to reduce the cost and complexity of dealing with these animals.

The genius of their plan is to spread the load out to as many people as possible. Can volunteer a little time or a little money great, or if you're a major benefactor there is room for you too. Also this method can be replicated anywhere as you don't need a building, land, storage, vehicles in the name of the charity, the people involved provide these things.

Highly motivated, highly ethical, and highly effective, too bad there isn't a 5-star+ rating.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

The pictures say it all....what time, proper care, and love can do for an animal in distress. This rescue takes care of those they can help in the best manner possible by giving each horse all they need - not taking in too many and spreading the care too thin. They are being responsible with the public's funds and making sure their work is transparent. You can see exactly how your donation or manpower is helping through the photo chronology provided for each horse. It takes many hands to obtain these type of results so quickly and so successfully. They obviously have a diligent, committed Board and passionate, hardworking volunteers.

Fantastic horse rescue. LEAN saves starving, unwanted and injured horses in and around Las Vegas. Medical care, a safe boarding facility ( donated), farrier care and training are all provided to re-home horses in to safe forever homes. All monies raised go to caring for the horses.

LEAN 's work brighten's my view on humanity. Truly looked as if she was hit by a car and without the TLC and medical attention the horse received from LEAN she would of died. The people that work at LEAN deserve to be rewarded and a free pass to heaven.

If you are looking for a charity that blesses both horse & human, look no further. Not only is L.E.A.N. run with heart, but with professionalism and fiscal integrity.
