Look at those [pictures of what AC4H calls an "Approved Adopter"
Pictures don't lie., especially pictures this place CHOOSES to post on their wall of their own facility and the horses they say they are
caring for.
These pictures should say it all.

The Great!

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

seeing horses they say they are helping who are not even at their facility, and in unhappy adopters who received horses who were ill, lame, dead or dying, and otherwise not as advertised

Ways to make it better...

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

Put them out of business. If you look at the 990s linked here, you see that either they, or the broker they pay for these horses is making over $300,000 a year. That is alot of money for a rescue to hand a broker

I have had a wonderful experiance with AC4H. I see all the good they do and have known many horses saved through their efforts. They are NOT a rich family, but one who gives all their time and resources to saving animals. Can we say the same? Please stop fueling the fire and accusing people of things we do not know to be true.

I have known and helped as a foster AC4H for years, known them for 10. I have been to their facilities, and watched how they do business. Never in all that time I have I had any reason to doubt them, their paperwork all checks out, they are a legit non profit, and others i know who have adopted from them have benn happy as well. I have never known them to be dishonest, they are always helpful and answer any questions or work with you in any way possible for the best of the horses. I am sorry to see the smear campaign being waged here by a crooked woman who lied and cheated about her horse and was found out. Shame on you.

seeing both the adoptive homes and those they took in that others turned away, including horses left at the sales barn deemed unfit for sale.

Give them more help and volunteers, they do a lot with a small group of people.

Reading the posts, I can only say it is so sad a mentally disturbed group of people want to administer more pain and suffering to animals that have suffered the gravest of disrespect and loss by being thrown away by their owners. Those that choose to help this rescue, simply need to check with the local humane society and to ask for documented proof of income and expenses. This doesn't mean the rescue is fraudulent, asking about any charity is good sense. Do your own research and let your conscience be your guide, not bitterness.

It has been an honor and a blessing to work with ac4h for over 4 yrs now. My experiences have been great. I have been able to visit the rescue and help with horses in need. My questions have always been answered. They have a great group of volunteers to help in all areas as ac4h extends beyond just being a rescue but also helps horses that are going to slaughter. They have aided in prosocution surrounding large neglect cases and have helped in placing those horses into loving careing homes as well as rehabilitating many theirselves. ac4h is a true blessing to many and to any and all horses in need.

SCAM! Don't trust this woman as far as you can throw her. Take your money to a reputable rescue who documents, these horses have a tendency to disappear.

This is all a smear campaign against the rescue by people that have personal agendas and drama llamas or others that just don't like Christy. Always drama llamas that are just jealous of this rescue because it's a success and other rescues that just don't like Christy and there's plenty of them! Just jealousy! Christy places hundreds of horses every year and she can account for every single one of them! Why can't people just let this rescue alone and stop the badgering? If she gets a little money by administration fees or other fees why not? She and her family do the work all week, every week nobody else!

AC4H or should I say AC$H posted a chocolate palomino filly in the salesbarn saying she was going to slaughter. She was beautiful and my heart went out to her. I applied to adopt her paying a 25.00 fee. I was never contacted despite numerous emails and phone calls to Christy Sheidy.

They fundraised 600.00 for her on Facebook, but I was more than happy to pay all the money and then pay to have her shipped to me. They took money from people saying she was going to die if she wasn't bailed out of the feedlot. I kept saying I wanted her. None of my references were ever contacted on my application.

Then it said "Safe, has a home". I was like OK, she has a home, she is safe. Figured maybe they wanted to keep her local or whatever (I am about 800 miles away).

3 weeks later the same filly, just a different photo angle, was posted on Facebook saying she was in the feedlot and now needed 900.00 to get out! I called them on it challenging them to produce the name of the person who adopted Filly number 1, they ignored me and then several people blocked me from their profiles so I couldn't see what they were saying about her. The filly was bailed again. Again it said "Safe- approved home".

To this day no one will say where the filly is. I feel that the scam Christy is pulling is photographing horses in a feedlot and saying "The truck is coming, the truck is coming, SAAAVVEE THEM!!!" and collecting money to bail them out. In the meantime the horse has long been sent to slaughter and she is collecting money to "bail" out a photo of a dead horse.

There have been numerous occasions where she bails two or three times a particular horse. Its documented on Facebook repeatedly.

I am sure she bails enough out to get a few people horses, apparently some people got their horses. But there is too much shady dealings and you are better off putting your trust in a local group.

All of you naive people, AC4$ is NOT rescuing horses. Where do you think the 20-30 horses a week they claim to save are going? No legit rescue in the country adopts more than a few horses a week max! Minis and small ponies DO NOT go to slaughter. Wake up. AC4$ has deleted video of severely laminitic and lame horses she offered for sale, FOR SALE, people. With rare exception these horses disappear into thin air once money is raised. Many people have been scammed and never received their horse.

As a recent adoptee- it is very stessful not knowing if you have enough $ raised to help you recieve the horse you want in time-or if someone else is also trying to buy the same horse-Christy was always quick to answer any questions I had and to help with the paperwork as I had never did this before- Please don't bash her -Her whole family has taken on a alot of work each week to help these animals find good homes and I am very grateful that I have my new horse Dallas- that would of gone to slaughter instead of greeting me every morning popping his head out of his stall waiting for his breakfast!
