Review from Guidestar
April 25, 2014

I know that many, many horses have been abandoned, neglected, and abused. The situation has gotten worse with the recession. Unfortunately, many people thoughtlessly acquire horses without the means or dedication to care for them. Thus the rescues are left to try to help.

I believe many
rescues and sanctuaries need better fund raisers. Their mailings have become more irritating to the recipients than helpful to the rescues. The letters are boilerplates that follow the same pattern for most sanctuaries and probably cost a lot. However, without the fundraisers, most people would not know of the rescues or their work.

Personally, I check the cause and if it looks legitimate in helping the animals victimized by people, I try to overlook the fundraising issues and contribute.

I would try to get a better way of fundraising. It looks as if most sanctuaries/rescues use the same organization or all the organizations use the same pattern of soliciting. It just begins to look phony, especially when you have multiple organizations seeking funding. I receive many mailings from numerous groups. Thus I sometimes feel solicitation fatigue and question if the money is being used well.
