This is an excellent organization to donate to help horses and burros. I have visited one of the properties where the livestock is kept. This is not a fly-by-night nonprofit, has been around helping animals for a long time. I know when I donate to this organization that the donation is going for what I had intended it for; helping horses. They do such an excellent job and really care about every animal in their possession. They do their very best to find forever homes for the ones that are adoptable. Those that are not adoptable have a forever home at one of the HFH facilities. This endeavor is not cheap, so any donation is a great help. If you donate to only one nonprofit, please make it Habitat for Horses.

I believe they're one of the best ... frequently I come across articles and news reports regarding HfH's involvement in the care of horses. I truly believe they have knowledge of horses and passion for horses, which is essential when caring for animals -- it's a 24/7 proposition! I make monetary donations whenever I can -- horses are expensive. I hope and pray they continue their great work and that they grow -- and take in as many horses as possible. (So many are in need due to horses' loss of public lands -- which they used to call home -- that are being taken over by the BLM and cattle ranchers).

I am very grateful that there is "HABITAT FOR HORSES"!
Unfortunately too many horses are abused and abandoned theses days with no
one to care about them.
Habitat for Horses has been there to help them recover and regain health.
They are doing a fantastic job caring for these animals and I am happy to support their efforts!

I wish I could rescue every horse, donkey, burro or mule needing help. Since that is impossible, it gives me great satisfaction to help support the wonderful work done by non-profit organizations like Habitat for Horses as they continue their missions of mercy in the field of equine rescue.

I love Habitat for Horses. The work they do to help these beautiful animals heal emotionally and physically is wonderful and allows these animals to get their forever homes. The work of caring for all these animals is long and hard and at times heartbreaking - yet they continue on, day and night, loving each and every one of their animals. Were it possible, I would adopt all of these beautiful animals.
Habitat for Horses is just that - a way to rescue, save, love and, when necessary, either adopt out the animals or provide a forever home for those with physical and emotional problems too severe to ever fully heal. I donate as much and as often as possible. And I am only too aware that there are, and continue to be, more animals than funds desperately needed to fight human cruelty and ignorance.
At its core, Habitat for Horses is more than an equine organization. It is a haven for warriors and angels alike dedicated to a mission fraught with heartache, heartbreak, and death. However, for every horse or donkey saved, so too is a human soul. To me, there is no greater calling...
There are no words sufficient enough to touch upon the selfless giving of Habitat for Horses. Suffering and sad, my only regret is the money required to save each animal, each human, indeed, our very world. Deplorable as this may be it is also an easy fix - it's only money. From penny to profit if we all give just a little bit we save the animals...we save ourselves. Habitat for Horses provides and protects this most sacred of gifts.

I have been donating and receiving newsletters from Habitat for Horses for years now and I am more than happy to continue to do so
They have a special love for horses and they do a great job nurturing them and finding homes. Thank you Habitat for Horses. I wish there were more organizations like you!

It's all about the horses at Habitat for Horses -- society NEEDS more and more sanctuaries and rescue ranches like Habitat for Horses -- without them, horses (along with other animals) would truly be at a loss -- they need human intervention, they need shelter, food, caring, good health, comfort, the proper environment along with the proper activities. Habitat for Horses is one of the best homes for horses (by the way, if I'm not mistaken, other animals also are taken in).

This is a true no-kill rescue! So much good is done here -- horses benefit, people benefit -- we desperately need more Rescues like Habitat for Horses.

It's a win-win for all parties involved!

I have supported HFH Inc for more than 10 years. I have also visited the facility, and seen first hand the wonderful caring work they do for the horses that come to them. I give them my highest praise and ask everyone who has a heart for animals in need to support this wonderful organization; Jennie M.

While I have always been an animal lover, it wasn't until my oldest granddaughter became enamored with horse back riding that these marvelous beauties became a new chapter in my life...The exceptional hard work and the love shown these animals by Habitat For Horses is unbelievable..I just wish I could afford to donate more funds to such a worthy cause...God must be smiling down on this group, you can believe that, He created these masterpieces and He knows that they will be taken care of, FIRST CLASS!!!!

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

MAKE SURE THEY ALWAYS HAD THE MONEY THEY NEEDED FOR EXPENSES....
