Having been a horse lover my entire life, I now have the opportunity to volunteer at such a wonderful farm and rescue...the people are so great, and the horses know we are there to help...there are donkeys that have been rescued along with a lone alpaca...but my time spent is, I feel, time well spent....thank you, Beech Brook Farm, for accepting me into your family! I have been involved with non-profits in the past, but none that takes such pride in what they do for animals that have been mistreated, not properly cared for, or at auction ready to go to slaughter...I'm glad you are here....and even more glad that I can help!

Beech Brook is a place where you feel like you make a difference. Training is top notch, safety a priority, and interaction with the horses encouraged! They have a volunteer page on FB where we can all chat and share great pics, and figure out new ways to contribute. Deborah is thoroughly involved and loves to share what she knows to anyone who asks. Money is always tight with rescues, so anyone with time, talent or money to give would find this a worthwhile cause! Love BBF!

I started volunteering at Beech Brook in Dec 2011. Right away I saw it as a safe, welcoming place for both horses and humans. The horses have a strong sense of self esteem and confidence, and I know most did not arrive that way. Even the older horses have spirit and life, and are interested in what goes on around them. The life they show is in response to the care and love they are given. Deb Finco, Kathleen, Kathy, trainers, and volunteers all have built a kind and constructive farm where good horses can be found, and where people are given friendliness and useful equine education. I hope the place goes on forever.

I recently started volunteering at Beech Brook Farm and it has been a great experience. Deb Finco knows each and every horse, mule and donkey in great detail. The effort of the farm is clearly to help the animals become good candidates for adoption. And their dedication doesn't stop there. Recently several horses and mules that had been adopted came back for one reason or another. I don't know how an organization can be financially prepared for such unpredictable events. Meanwhile, the organization is growing and working through all the same kinds of problems that any growing business goes through. Their ability to roll with the punches and come back ready for more is a testament to their dedication.

i started as a volunteer at Beech Brook Farm Jan 2012. The farm has the most amazing feel. It is a lovely, safe setting where the animals are treated with care dignity and respect. Deb and all the volunteers are so committed and compassionate and the teamwork while helping all the rescued animals is evident every thing they do.

Beech Brook Farm is a wonderful rescue barn where the owner (Deborah) and volunteers truly care about the well being of the horses. The barn has a friendly environment where people can join together to share their love of horses and their desire to help out in the community. The horses are treated with respect, excellent medical care and given the love and attention they deserve. They are a great choice to foster or adopt from.

It's been a year since my last review and Deb never fails to amaze me. Her dedication to the animals and making sure they are trained and ready for their new homes is paramount. She strives for success stories. She is tireless in her efforts. This is one Rescue that is as top notch as you can get. I only wish others would follow her example of" how to do it right". Please go to her website and check out Beech Brook Farm in Mystic Ct., you will be delighted.

Beech Brook rescue is about endless devotion to the animals and to the staff of volunteers. Dedication and education is what sets this rescue apart from all the others. Careful consideration is given to all who wish to adopt. Deb goes above and beyond most and it shows. She is a leader with strong conviction for what she does. I have been very impressed by her and her operation. Blessed are the animals that find their way to her farm. Each animal is loved and cared for on an individual bases.

I started volunteering at Beech Brook Farm over a year ago. I admire their dedication of rescuing equines from going to slaughter. I think because slaughtering is illegal in United States we don't realize that many many equines are sold at auctions, put on a trailer and driven into Canada and Mexico. There is where they are slaughtered. Thanks to Beech Brook Farm that they give these equines a second chances of life in a happy loving home.

I've adopted several horses from another rescue so I understand firsthand the hardwork and dedication that goes into caring for these amazing creatures.

The only change I would make is that they acquire more volunteers so they can continue their mission. Without volunteers they can only take in a limited amount which means more equines go to slaughter. I try not to look at it that way. In the big picture I try to view it as if we can save one horse Beech Brook is accomplishing their mission.

Beech Brook Farm and Deborah work tirelessly day in and day out with the rescues. She also takes time to teach young volunteers all about horses and their needs. I appreciate all that she does and wish I could do more to help in this worthy cause...Rescuing beautiful horses.
