SHE QUIT HER JOB TO CARE AND HANDELING HORSES THAT ARE ABUSED, STARVED, AND READY FOR SLAUGHTER. SHE HAS BUT HER TIME ON FACEBOOK SO PEOPLE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS TO SLAUGHTER HORSES, AND WITH THAT UNDERSTANDING STOPPED AND HELP AND PUT BILLBOARDS ALL OVER THE STATE TO STOP THE SLAUGHTERING OF HORSES. JO HAS A -TEAM WITH HER THAT TAKES THE CARE AND FEEDING OF RESCUED HORSES EVERY DAY. HER TEAM IS THE BEST, IN HELP AND FEEDING AND CARING FOR THESE HORSE THAT THEY RESCUED.JO IS HONEST AND CARING AND HONORABLE. HER HUSBAND GREG COMES HOME FROM WORK AND HELPS JO FINISHING IN TAKING CARE OF THE HORSES. THESE TWO PEOPLE ARE THE BEST IN WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO. SAVING HORSES AND FINDING GOOD HOMES FOR THEM. THEY BOTH HAVE STRENGTH AND UNDERSTANDING AND INTEGRITY. ANGEL ACRES IS EXACTLY WHAT IT MEANS. HEAVEN TAKING CARE OF HORSES.... AND THESE TWO PEOPLEAND HER A-TEAM DO THE BEST WORK EVER... ELLIE

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

JO DEIBEL IS THE MOST CARING PERSON IHAVE KNOWN ON FACEBOOK AND , HOW SHE CARES ABOUT THE WAYT HE HORSES ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED. SHE IS TRYING TO STOP THIS FROM EVER HAPPENING AGAIN. JO, MADE A VIDEO TALKING ABOUT THE WAY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SLAUGHTERING THE HORSES. SHE LOVES ANIMALS AS MUCH AS I DO BY THE ONLY WAY I KNOW HOW TO IS SEND CAUSES THROUGH FACEBOOK. SHE DOES IT BY CARING FOR WAYWORD HORSES THAT WERE ABUSED OR READY TO BE SLAUGHTERED. SHE CARE FOR THEMA ND FINDS NEW HOMES FOR THEM. THIS IS A DECATED PERSON, AND I LIKE HER A LOT FOR SAVING THEM. JO IS A VERY HONEST AND DOWN TO EARTH . AND I AM GLAD TO HELP BY DONATING TO HER CAUSE.

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

THE BEST

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

I am shocked an appalled that the proprietor of this rescue would libel my good name in order to gather likes on her rescue's FB page. I called her to reach out to her as she stated on her page. She never had the common decency to return my phone call. This is not a professional organization by any stretch. AVOID this place.

You are a LIAR and you know it. I have given you my number, you did not call me, ever. You sit behind your computer and throw around accusations. Then when we try to reach out to you, you block us and don't let us defend ourselves. This review has been flagged, we should not be able to reviewed by a person who we have never spoken to us and blatantly lies about their "Experience" with us.

Today I received begging letters from two horse rescue organizations, both of which have a small mistake in my name, indicating I have been sold out by someone to whom I donated and my name has been used by a corporation doing fund raising for small non-profits. The mailing address for the donation requested was in Maryland, not Pennsylvania. Clearly it is going to the for-profit organization collecting the money. Heaven only knows how much the rescue group actually receives. I have asked the rescue to remove my name from their list, or to ask the list owner to do so. When I find out which organization sold my name, you can bet there will be no further donations to that one, either.

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

Stop using a paid company to fund raise.

Regarding your profile which I saw on GreatNonprofits.org: Hi, Thank you for letting us know you no longer wish to receive our mailings. We DO have a farm in Maryland. We have 2 farms - one is the main rescue farm where horses are allowed to recover and are rehabilitated at and the other one (one in MD) is the farm where they are retrained to be adopt out. We use a professional fundraising service to help us with our mission because without their assistance getting the word out to the general public about the need for horse rescue we would not be able to fulfill our mission as successfully. For the record the professional fundraiser, used by many groups, costs about 1 to 2 cents per mailing. Please send me your name and address and I will promptly have you removed. I am very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you. The email to reply back to me is: angelacreshorsehaven@yahoo.com Thank you, Jo Deibel Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc.

I think Angel Acres are Angels...Helping Horses like they do is a beautiful thing...So many horses are put in fields and forgotten about. It breaks my heart when I see a dirty forgotten horse in the field which I hate to say but in my area you see many of them. So I Thank Angel Acres for being there and for doing what they do...For their kindness and love for a beautiful animal Thank-You Angel Acres...God Bless You All !!!

Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc. does such good work, helping the animals that others throw away, are abusive too and just plain starve to brink of death. I applaud the work they do and wish them many more years of helping Gods creatures.

Although I have not had the privilege of meeting Jo Deibel in person, I have had MANY wonderful conversations with her. I found her on Facebook and she agreed to pick up an OTTB for one of my boarders and put him in the 'program'. The conditions of the facility where this gelding was picked up was HORRIFIC. After a brief time with the horse, the 'new' owner decided she did not WANT this horse and wanted me to return him.... I searched high and low for the perfect place to send this gelding and found Angel Acres Horse Haven. Jo not only bought the gelding for the purchase price but also sent me board money until she was able to have him picked up. She even arranged for my veterinarian to come and do whatever was necessary to help this gelding. He came off the track with a leg injury. After following her on FB and the numerous phone conversations, I know that what she is doing is REAL. I am also very impressed with her policy of helping 'rehome' the horse if the situation arises.

I haven't yet had the honor or privilege of working with Angel Acres or Jo, but just from watching them work and sharing things she posts on Facebook in an effort to help what little I can, I have seen that this is a wonderful place and she is a great person for offering her time and effort to speak up and speak out for these great animals. The education she gives the public is top notch and helps to promote this cause. If I ever get the chance to have a horse or horses of my own, I am going to reach out to Angel Acres and do what I can to help one of these fine horses get a place with me. I will continue to support them how ever I can.
