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.

It has been my pleasure to know Jo for many years. Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue does a incredible job of educating as well as helping not only horses but other animals as well. Jo has offered us her help on more than one occasion, she is to be admired and thanked for all the time and effort she put in. I cannot imagine all the horses that would not have been saved had it not been for her work. Thank you Jo!!

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

Clone Jo so more could be done!

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!
