Beech Brook Farm is one of the best, equine rescues in Connecticut. Their success stories and wonderful programs are a tribute to their dedication to all equine. Since they are volunteer run, all donations go to the equines. Because of this, they are one of my top charities.

Beech Brook Farm is an idyllic equine rescue in Mystic Connecticut dedicated to saving equines from neglect & abusive situations & provide them with a loving home for life.

I found Beech Brook three years ago when I was searching for an equine rescue in Connecticut to donate funds to and
was happy to find such a dedicated crew. The founder, Deb Finco and her crew of volunteers work tirelessly to save these equines from abuse and possible slaughter.

Just wish I could do more.

Although it is small, Beech Brook Farm is large in spirit. Deborah Finco and her volunteers are truly dedicated to their equines and always put their needs before their own.

I found BBF when I was looking for a rescue for a gaited horse. I have since become a big fan. They do rescue right and always have the best interest of the horses at heart. BBF is one of a handful of rescues that I totally support.

Beech Brook Farm Equine Rescue is a wonderful rescue in South Eastern Connecticut that saves horses, and donkeys and perhaps a few other things. I know that save the heart and souls of the animals that they save and the time and energy that is put out by the founder, Ms. Deborah Finco is amazing. The volunteers work endless hours to fill the void of love that many of these animals have not had.

The location is in scenic and beautiful Mystic, Connecticut on property that perfect for the farm. Times are tough for everyone, but especially non-profit organizations such as this. If you love animals this is the place to make a tax-deductible donation so they can continue to do the great work in having animals from abuse and neglect.

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

Bless them with endless money for the cause.

I have been donating to Beech Brook Farm Equine Rescue for about 3 years. I am very careful about checking out 501(c)3's and BBFER passed muster with flying colors. I have contributed several thousand dollars annually, always in response to a real need and not merely a regular request which is so common with some charities. Deborah Finco has a solid business plan (not all that common for animal rescues, unfortunately) and while she also works a full-time job, she devotes a huge amount of personal time to helping the animals she rescues to rehabilitate and rehome them. I am not in a position to adopt a horse, but BBFER gives me a lot of satisfaction that I'm providing a level of help to horses that will be rehomed once they have been given a second chance by Deborah. Frankly, I consider it money very well spent.

Beech Brook Farm in Mystic is an outstanding equine rescue organization! They not only specialize in gaited horse breeds and crosses but they also have a special place in their hearts for mini horses, mini donkeys and the full-sized donkeys, too. Beech Brook Farm has provided second chances to many horses over the years as well as providing a safe place to foal to mares and jennies, ensuring their youngsters get a great start out in life. The hardest decision any human ever has to make is to euthanize a suffering, beloved animal when the time has come. Sadly, sometimes there can be no other outcome. These folks handle that awful task, too, with compassion and strength. Lucky the horse or donkey in need of a second chance that finds itself at Beech Brook Farm.

Beech Brook Farm Equine Rescue is truly an outstanding organization that does amazing work rescuing horses, ponies and donkeys. From taking in animals whose owners can no longer care for them, to pulling horses from kill pens destined for slaughter, Deb Finco-Kent and her team of dedicated volunteers bring comfort and love (not to mention food, medical care and training) to each and every animal lucky enough to be in their care.

I donated some money to Beech Brook to save a horse from being taken to slaughter. Deborah began communicating with me almost immediately. She leaves no questions or comments unanswered & makes a donor feel like a member of the family, sending frequent updates with photos of the horse I helped to save. She has a large network of foster homes & volunteers & is tireless in her efforts to help save horses from an inhumane end to their life.

I think Beech Brook is doing an amazing job saving gaited horses & donkeys from the kill buyers. They are one of the only rescues in the country specifically taking in the gaited horses, and bringing them back to health and giving them wonderful new homes with people who love them!

Obtain a bigger facility so they could have the ability to save more horses and keep finding new homes for the wonderful horses they save!
