I have adopted from Angel Acres and have fostered for Angel Acres, they play a critical role in the horse racing world. not only do they step up to the plate and rehome the OTTB they are. Also all about educating the public to the plight of the OTTB. Jo Is tireless as an ambassador for those who cannot speak for themselves, the OTTB. Thank you Angel Acres and Jo.

Although I have never adopted a horse from Angel Acres, I have been following them for years and supporting them when I can. The Stop Slaughtering Us bill boards have been far reaching throughout the US. They are a class act organization.

I have been an Angel Acres supporter for many years. It warms my heart to know that Jo and the other people who run Angel Acres take the time to help horses in need. They are doing a great job with those horses. Some of those horses were considered garbage to their owners, but Angel Acres takes them in and gives them a good life. I love what Angel Acres stands for. They take horses of all ages and give them the life that they deserve.

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

Nothing. They are perfect in my eyes.

Adopted 2 beautiful babies from Angel Acres. Couldn't ask for a more caring person than Jo and her staff. They move mountains to do what they do! Keep saving those babies!

I have had the honor of both fostering and adopting from Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue. They do an incredible job at placing horses in permanent homes and rescuing those in need as well as educating the public on the realities of horse slaughter. My adopted horse is such a wonderful guy and is such a good match for us that I plan to adopt from Angel Acres again, in the future when we are able to take on another horse.

Angel Acres with Jo and all the volunteers work very hard to rescue and rehome horses. The work they do is never ending in this day and age, yet they never say no and are always willing to help. I have watched their skills at rehabilitating horses that others have tossed to the curb with amazement as the horses come in looking trashed and scared, but when they leave they are returned to their glorius state and thru time come to trust again. God bless them!

Angel Acres and Jo are a homeless horses best friend. They also educate the public on the horrors of horse slaughter. Our horses need an advocate and they have one in Angel Acres.

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

I wish I could give Angel Acres unlimited funds so they could save them all!

I am facebook friends with Angel Acres, and i support and fully believe in what they do. Jo rescues horses (and cats!) and cares for, and protects them. She sends them under contract, and checks up on their status. Rescue is expensive, and adoption fees are fair. Any horse in need of rescue would be blessed to end up with her.
Jo also is working on anti horse slaughter billboards to hopefully reach across America, and God willing will accomplish this. To those who feel they could do this better, have at it. Buy land, become a non profit, and start saving horses correctly. Thank you Angel Acres, from Ellie and many horses.

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

the rescue world, and anti slaughter billboards

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

give them more funds

I think Jo and her group do a wonderful job. They don't just rescue, but actively educate the public about the slaughter issue which is sorely needed.

Im writing to say I think Angel Acres does a phenomenal job !
A friend of mine has had an Angel Acres rescue for quite some years now!
The beautiful horse was hours away from slaughter when Angel Acres stepped in to help
That horse with one foot in the grave is now a beloved companion and multiple blue ribbon winner
It is apparent from looking at the financials of this non profit that they understand how to get a dollar to go that extra furlong ! I proudly support the efforts of Angel Acres and am dismayed that there are individuals out there who think it necessary to leave scalding reviews of this organization just out of spite or ignorance or both !
