Review from Guidestar
January 25, 2011

I have been following Angel Acres on FB since I started on FB. I think that Jo is a wonderful woman who has the guts to tell it like it is!! You either love horses or you don't but what you should do before writing a review is watch a horse being slaughtered!! This was on Sixty Minutes once and I left the room crying!! Jo probably has a full house right now and she won't let a horse go to just anyone,which makes me respect her even more. Those billboards are needed. For some reason the senator or reps in Nebraska seem to think we need to slaughter horses in the US again!! Of course one of them has a direct interest in this because he and his family sorry for the pun will make a killing from it. Besides horses are given meds that are in their muscles/tissues which are not met for human consumption. I try to donate to her when I can,if I lived closer I'm would be there helping as much as possible and I can't ride at this time due to major back problems!! Please before you review someone in the future do a little research 1st. Oh and one question,Would you eat horsemeat?

This rescue's activies are disgusting! They only have a couple of horses in their care and they seem more interested in soliciting funds to put billboards up then actually helping horses. Their adoption prices are deplorable also! Most rescues charge between 5-700 for horses but their prices go into the thousands!
It's all about the publicity for them so they can get funds. With all the monies coming in they should do more to help more horses.

I have seen the messages they post begging for money and then if you want to support a different horse rescue they put out a public message telling everyone not to send funds to the other rescue. They are greedy and just want the money for themselves.

Rescues need to work together to help the horses and it's clear that this rescues motive is all money related and if the funds dont go to their coffers then they dont want the money going anywhere even if it is to help other horses.

Angel Acres is a GFAS accredited rescue that is dedicated to rescuing slaughter-bound horses and horses suffering from abuse/neglect. I have been volunteering at Angel Acres for about a year and a half and although I'm now away at college, I still help out whenever I can. Jo runs a wonderful rescue and practices everything she preaches, so to speak. She loves what she does despite all the hardships such as what happened with Prince, a starvation case that couldn't pull through. Jo does her best to spread the word about the inhumanity of horse slaughter and her actions and rescue greatly impact the unfortunate situation. Her effort is a noble one and we all try to aid her in anyway we can as well as encourage others to assist, even in the simplest ways, as well.

I've seen many a horse happily go off to a new forever home and I have seen many horses in poor condition become rehabilitated and healthy again.

The only change I would make is not under Jo's control; I would like to see more of these lovely creatures adopted to loving homes both to help those horses and to help those that would come in to take their place.

I have followed Angel Acres for appx. four years now. They do their best to spread the word about horse slaughter and over breeding of horses. They are an organization that can be trusted and I have donated my money to them.
Angel Acres donations go to the horses and the more support that
they receive the more horses can be helped that are in need.
They have worked hard to get where they are today and I would suggest them to others.

I have personally experienced the results of this organization by supporting their fundraising efforts for horses in need of help before they enter into the horse slaughter pipeline

If I had to make changes to this organization I would only hope that they could get more support through grants, donations, etc. to make them available to help more horses in need.

I volunteer with Angel Acres and have for 4 years. I help assist getting the word out about slaughter bound horses and the horrendous act of horse slaughter. In addition, I collect feed labels from certain types of feed. When they are turned in the rescue gets money. One can help Angel Acres even if you do not live close by. For example the feed label program works all over the country. Just mail the labels to the rescue. This is a HUGE fundraiser. Also, we have folks that ask for donations for the rescue in lieu of bday gifts. So generous. The horses at the rescue are a HUGE part of the rescue however volunteering can be done from any state. I personally have dedicated myself to this org helping to stop horse slaughter and helping neglected and abused horses. I also especially appreciate that they are accredited by GFAS (Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries) and are one of only 5 horse rescues in the US with this accrediation. That means your money is going to help the horses!!! Way too many rescues out there now are scamming people when they donate and the horses suffer as a result. Kudos to the work Jo Deibel does- please step up and help!!

Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc is dedicated to saving horses that are bound to be slaughtered for human consumption. They also rescue horses in abuse cases. They were the second equine rescue to be GFAS Accredited. They run an excellent facility, the animals are well taken care of and they are kind to people and animals.

More feedback...

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

their candid approach to horse rescue. Not animal activists, but real horse rescuers who care about the overall well-being of the horses and do whats best for each horse, based on the horses needs.

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

kind, extremely passionate about the horses, willing to teach and also willing to learn.

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

spread the message about horse slaughter and why it needs to stop around the country. They could rescue many, many more horses and expand the rescue program.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
