Equine Rescue Resource, Inc.

Rating: 4.43 stars   7 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: PO Box 17 Pine Bush NY 12566 USA

Mission: Equine Rescue Resource Inc. began as an educational venture, to create awareness on the issues facing equines in the United States. We then expanded by taking a supportive role in equine rescue efforts throughout the Northeast U.S. In 2001, the incidents of horse abuse, neglect, abandonment and horse slaughter rose. ERR grew again due to the ever increasing need for competent and caring shelters that could facilitate large animal rescues, specifically equine rescues. ERR is comprised entirely of volunteers that assist in the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of equines (lite horses, draft horses, ponies, donkeys, mules) throughout New York State and any surrounding area that our volunteers can reasonably reach for site inspections and follow up visits. We believe education is key, and ERR puts forth efforts to promote equine adoption and responsible ownership. ERR's goal is to prevent horses from becoming victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

I am a retired law enforcement officer one of my special tasks was Animal Cruelty. I have been the Cruelty Advisor for this organization since it came into existence. While there are other horse rescues in the area I elected to become part of this organization because I found it to be the most caring regarding not only horses but any animal in need. Some rescues become involved with only police related matters this rescue will take in not only cruelty cases but horses that are no longer wanted, abandoned , if the owners die or are no longer able to care for their animals. Being with this organization from the start I am impressed with their ability to adapt to new changes and how they strive to ALWAYS remain focused on the health and welfare of the animals in their care.

This organization is wholly disorganized and participates in illegal practices. Horses are placed in foster care without foster agreements on purpose and when expenses are incurred by the foster home for vet and farrier care, this charity pulls the horse out and blocks the foster home completely. There are a number of people whom have been financially damaged by this charity. I also have first hand knowledge and proof that this charity is using rescue funds to feed and house 4 privately owned horses and 1 "adopted" out horse.

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

2010 to 2011. I am now bringing a small claims lawsuit against this charity.

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

Adhere to the bylaws and to IRS 501(c) rules.
