I have been volunteering for Angel Acres for over a year now and I have see amazing changes in the horses that were saved from slaughter, abuse, and abandonment. They go out of their way to help as many horses in need as they can. I will continue volunteering for Angel Acres in the future because I know they are doing their best to make our country a better place for animals of all kinds.

I have followed Angel Acres for about 5 to 6 years now and I must say that they go above and beyond to help as many horses as they can. Plus a few kittens and a baby groundhog! Jo Diebel has heart for the horses, her passion shines thru with all that she does and also all of the volunteers.
They care about finding the right homes for each horse, not just a home. he horses go thru rehab if needed and training. #1 horse rescue in my book!!!

Angel Acres does a wonderful job rescuing horses, rehabilitating and training them, and carefully matching them to new homes where they can lead happy, productive lives. In my time training horses for the rescue, I have seen a number of wonderful horses find homes where they go on to fruitful second careers, from everything from trail riding to winning at shows. They work hard to match horses and riders to ensure that everyone is happy, and they give numerous horses a chance at life that they may not have otherwise been granted.

I have been involved with Angel Acres over the past few years as a Donor and they have been very productive and efficient in saving America's horses from becoming victims of slaughter. Over the years, Angel Acres has been able to rapidly grow their organization by using different methods of getting their message across to the public (billboards, fundraisers, etc). They have also been able to build a large community of donors and volunteers to help spread the word and educate the public on the horse slaughter industry.

The Great!

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

Billboard publications, horse adoption, featured news articles.

Incorporate other farm animals into their humane education to combat factory farming. No animal, including horses, should have to spend their lives within the confines of feedlots and slaughterhouses.

Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue does incredible work. I donate to them every chance I get and I even sponspor a horse monthly. I trust this rescue and I know that my money is being used wisely and for what it is intended for, the horses. I am so impressed with this rescue and the work they do that I really am speechless about it. Jo Deibel is excellent and personally responds to each sponsor/donor and I have been impressed with her integrity, thoughtfulness and accountability since day one. She lives and breathes this cause in my opinion and the horses are so lucky to have her. This rescue not only saves horses from slaughter and rehomes them, they also are doing everything possible to educate the public about horse slaughter using non-graphic billboards and brochures and they also help people who currently own horses to keep their horses if they are having trouble. This rescue is the only rescue I have found with a multi-faceted approach to saving the horses. There are also numerous ways to contribute to Angel Acres such as donating to the hay fund, sponsoring a horse, contributing to the billboard campaign for education, using their interactive wish list to buy supplies they need, volunteering time, and so much more including just speading the message through word of mouth. Check out their website, it is a wealth of information of things you can do to support them and their cause, some of which do not require a financial donation if you are short on funds. And one of the best parts is irregardless of what you do to help, Jo appreciates everything no matter how big or small. She has a huge heart and when she says something I trust her like she is a member of my family. All the work she does is truly for the horses. I am about to start volunteering there in a few days and am looking forward to working with her on this cause. I only wish I could do more to support her and Angel Acres because this is a cause that deserves all the support they can get.

Wonderful rescue. I got involved with Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue when I saw a post on fb. I have donated to Matties fund, Billboads to stop and educate people about horse slaughter. They put all their energy and heart into rescuing horses from kill pens and abusive conditions. They never seem to tire of the hard work and dedication that it takes to do what they do every day. Then don't give up untill that rescued horse is nursed back to health and has found a loving forever home. I'm proud to donate and be a part of this rescue.

I have been involved in horse (animal) rescue for over 10 years. During a particularly "hairy" period of time, when some horse rescues have been found to be fraudulent and/or "brokers", Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue has maintained they're integrity. I am pleased to count them as a resource for the backyard rescue we often do here, taking in one or two animals in need at a time. I proudly donate to them, and if I weren't across the country would love to be more involved as a volunteer,

I'm the Deputy Director-Equine for the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and have been working with Jo on a professional level for several years. Her standards among the highest in animal welfare for both animal care and operating a non-profit. Her work ethic is so intense sometimes I think she must have figured out how to post updates on Facebook in her sleep. She deals with very ugly situations of animal cruelty and the horse slaughter issue but focuses on the positive and celebrates successes in her updates. She uses her sense of humor and storytelling to help us feel like we're all a part of the work of Angel Acres-like when the wheel fell off the tractor and when the tractor caught fire. The stories let her supporters know that she had a need (a new tractor) without sounding desperate and helpless. I think that resilience and positive outlook is what her supporters find so admirable. As a former grantmaker, I always had confidence that if Jo was awarded a grant, that every penny would be accounted for and would be spent in accordance with the grant terms explicitly and if there were any challenges, she would check in with us before making any modifications. And now that I'm not working as a grantmaker but hear from her about her management of the grants she currently has, I am even more confident of her integrity towards those funders. This is one organization that has my complete vote of confidence!

The Great!

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

Evaluating the results of their success with grant funding through follow-up reports. Enlisting Jo to help other equine organizations achieve GFAS Accreditation/Verification. Using them as a model for successful use of social media and fundraising.

Jo works as a volunteer, so I would set aside enough funding to pay someone to do a good portion of what Jo does (the parts someone else could do) and use Jo to mentor struggling or young equine rescues/sanctuaries. She doesn't suffer fools gladly and I think that she could help some of them work smarter instead of continuing practices that are ineffective.

More feedback...

How does this organization compare with others in the same sector?

Very Well

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

Life-changing

Will you recommend this organization to others?

Definitely

What is unique about this organization?

Extreme efficiency and professionalism. Animal Welfare has been given a black eye by scammers and also by compassionate but naive people who want to help animals but get in over their heads. Angel Acres is the antidote to those giving our field a bad reputation. Finally, Angel Acres is making a life-changing impact on both the individual horses that comes into their care and also at the national level with their slaughter awareness billboard campaign.

Angel Acres is a wonderful organization that I have gotten to know in the past year. They are very dedicated to the animals in their care. In addition, their campaign against horse slaughter, led by Angel Acres' president and founder, Jo Deibel, is helping horses all across the country. Her passion and love for horses is inspiring and she is not only an advocate for horses but also an educator. I am looking forward to following and supporting Angel Acres in the years to come.
