Cheryl and her crew run a wonderful and organized rescue helping hundreds if not thousands of animals each year. They are the most reputable rescue I know!

A former student called me in desperation. Her sweet gentle horse had gotten hurt at a boarding stable. She could not afford the vet care he would need for several months. I have been a private rescuer and follower of several local organizations.
I suggested she call and see if HRR aka Save the Horses .
Although the outcome from the injury was not the best. He was given the chance to try and recover with proper vet care and attention.
I have seen a few miracles worked by this group.
Not only do they save the lives of animals in need but educate and nurture a caring and compassionate program for the future generation of rescuers.
America needs horse rescues like this! Keep them going strong! It's the least we can do. Thank god for the horse rescue relief and retirement fund! This prevents slaughter horses at auction!
Beautiful people doing beautiful work for beautiful animals, Vincent James
As a former animal keeper and one that grew up around horses, I was very pleased with what I saw when I visited the rescue several months ago. It was encouraging to see the setting that these animals now live in especially knowing many of them have come from neglectful situations. It is a wonderful feeling to see the loving volunteers giving their time in caring for these animals. I hope to volunteer when my children are a little older. I encourage those reading this will consider volunteering and/or donating to this great rescue.
I am founder of Last Stop Horse Rescue in Maine. During one of my recent trips to Georgia to visit my daughter and grandchildren I had the opportunity to meet Cheryl Flanagan of this amazing rescue. My daughter purchased her first horse. We shared this together, and met the most kind and gentle souls. A beautiful QH buckskin. The rest of this story was a nightmare. She was not the horse we met and not the horse that was delivered where my daughter was going to keep her. I reached out for help. Called several rescues and this rescue was the one to call back with referral to other horse people who could help that were from the area. When "Ginger" was delivered Cheryl came with one of her trainers to see if she could help my daughter who was inexperienced with a horse with severe trust and dominant issues. Rescue is for many reasons... and before I could leave Georgia I needed to know that my daughter and her new horse were in good hands. Cheryl rescued "me" and allowed me to head back to Maine to care for my own 27 horses at my own rescue. They did not know me, but they knew I needed help and help came. Many phone calls came later, following up with my daughter and myself. Names of vets, farriers, hay suppliers were offered by this helpful rescue. Being in the public, the support base is huge and this rescue used their support system to get help for Toni and "Ginger". I believe that a horse doesnt always have to "land" at a rescue to need help. A giving heart, an open heart, and a honest heart is how this rescue is managed.
