BFF takes wonderful care of their horses. They are a 501 charity. They pull horses out of neglectful situations and restored them to good health. Bev Dee sees the horses at her rescue as part of the family. Bev is an advocate for horses, she is very honest and caring person

I have seen how horses that were in very bad shape improve

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

Nothing, better funding

Bev Dee,Has helped countless horses from slaughter. I recall a particular rescue of hers inwhich a pregnant mare was about to be placed on a trailer already stuffed..over stuffed with other horses for the night mare trip to a Canada's Slaughterhouse. The dealer had no problem with putting her on board. She was to foal any day. Bev worked hard to raise money to buy her. Now the dealer tells her she could not buy her untill Monday when he would drive her to a action in New Holland. it shocked me to see his lack of compassion! Bev did bring the mare to Bright Futures farm and the mare gave birth just a few days later.Bev even sent me pictures of the new baby boy! I wish more enlightenment was brought to the public's eye on people such as Bright Futures Farms and Bev Dee for their dedication , hard work and countless hours of finding donations to save these horse's and the compassion she has.Are we not the care takers of this planet? The Hores is truly breathtaking and a uniquely complex and sensitive creatures. They have been deeply rooted as a symbol of American of strength and spirt. These magnificent creatures of noble do not deserve the senseless butchering they are getting. I thank GOD for people such as Bev Dee of ''Bright Futures Farms'' who are doing what ever they can on such a shoe string buget! God Bless them.Thank you Bev Dee. Suzanne Malless.

On their shoe string buget..don't think they would be able to do it but ,how wonderful to run a ad just how these poor horses go to slaughter but bright Futures Farms saves them from this inhumane death and gives these horse's a second chance to provide purposefull jobs .

I became aware of Bright Futures Farm from a co-worker. Being an animal lover myself, I followed the journey with her to rescuce two more horses. She always speaks highly of the way this organization is ran. It warms my heart to hear the success stories regarding Bright Futures Farm.

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

seeing my co-worker rescuing these beautiful horses and seeing the happy life they are now living thanks to her and Bright Futures Farm.

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

give the shirt off my back to see that Bright Futures Farm can place more horses with loving families and have the funds to do this.

Over the years I have been involved with many horse rescue organizations, but the one constant has been Bright Futures Farm. They have a reputation for being professional, and always have the horses and other animals best interest at heart. Top Notch.

Bright Futures Farm is an incredible and unique horse rescue org. They are diligent about always keeping the horses best interest in mind, not just at the present, but future. One of the few rescue organizations that do follow up and require a contract, always keeping the horse out of bad hands again. I've adopted 4 rescues since 2006 and 3 of them with the help of Bright Futures Farm. Bev and her team are the best in the business and well respected and known by many. They have had a tough few years, like many, but really, really deserve to win this grant contest money. Please vote for Bright Futures Farm!

Bright Futures has helped me and many others rescue countless equines in dire straits. Now they are safe and will remain that way for the remainder of their lives, due to Bright Futures strict policies and screening on adoptions.

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

Give them a bunch of money if I won the lottery so they didn't have to struggle so much and they could rescue and adopt out more horses and have all of the resources that they need and deserve.

I have had dealings with Bright Futures Fam for several years now, both as a donor and supporter. I can heartily recommend them as a very reputable rescue that has a wealth of horse knowledge, and takes excellent care of the horses.
I have helped in several rescue efforts where horses have been taken in by Bright Futures, and each time, photos, updates, and proper follow-up when the horses are adopted out are provided to donors and supporters in a timely manner.

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

feeling secure that the horses rescued were safe and well-cared for, and would be adopted with a protective contract.

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

wish for expanded facilties and finances to enable them to save more horses.

I have known about Bright Futures Farm for several years.
Beverlee is dedicated to her work for the horses, and often sends me pictures of one particular horse I have donated to monthly for nearly 2 years.
She will keep me updated with his care and travels to visit him
and send me pictures of the guy. It is quite a distance to go to see S. Lips, but when Bev says she is going to visit and take pics, she keeps her word.
She has provided me with the contact info to the person who is fostering the horse I donate towards.
I have found many rescues to be in the rescue for the money and not the horses.
Bright Futures does a wonderful job, and I know many rescues do not deal with stallions.

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

I am a donor and follow the activities of this rescue and the good she does for horses.

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

I would move closer so I can be more involved with the rescue and the work they do.

My family has both received and placed horses through Bright Futures Farms. Bev works very hard to make sure that the horses are being cared for properly. She carefully reviews the photos that she receives and follows up if the horses care is not good enough. I am impressed by her intense concern for the horses.

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

seeing horses come out of a bad living situation and be quickly placed in a good home.

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

make the organization bigger so that they can do more good.

Bright Futures personifies the very name of its organization. Ms. Beverlee Dee is a tireless lover and advocate of these beautiful creatures and to meet her and hear her it is instantly clear of her true dedication to ensuring that these animals are taken from harms path and given a loving and caring environment and a new home that will carry on this level of love and devotion. It is an honor to know and be associated with this organization.

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

I have visited this farm, met with Ms. Dee, and have seen first hand the adoption of one of these animals and the level of care, concern, and consideration given to the animal, before, during and after adoption.

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

Candidly, I wish I could better support this organization to grow to accommodate the vast need for this type of facility/operation.

Bev at Bright Futures Farm is wonderful. The care she provides to her rescues exceeds my expectations. She is transparent with her finances and I know when I donate to her rescue that the money is going exactly where I expect it to go, to the care of the horses.

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

their finances. Every expense is out in the open. Bev will scan receipts to show where/how she spends donated funds.

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

Donate more funds so Bright Futures Farm could rescue more horses!

Hi I live in Arizona and am an animal lover. I have come to know Bright Futures Farm from face book . I came to be a supporter from reading all the continuing stories of rescuing and caring for horses in distress. They are passionate in their love for horse and their dedication in rescuing and caring for them. I am proud to be a supporter and I would be priviledged to meet them in person.

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

I feel great joy when I read about all the horses that they are rescuing and giving a second chance.

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

Find them a way for them to have continous donations to alleviate financial stress, so they can continue to focus on their passiona & what they are commited to do - rescue and care for horses until they can find a forever home.
