This group of people are truly inspiring! The property is wonderful- there is always learning and volunteer opportunities. The have hypatherapy to help children with disabilities an awesome horsemanship classes! These folks are very much needed in a rural area as well. I have seen them travel to great lengths and spend time, effort and money to save some animals that required transport from outside of the southeast. Truly a great non-profit that is worthy of support and love!

What a fantastic organization! I have never met a more caring group of volunteers so excited about sharing their love, compassion, and devotion to the animals of Save the Horses Farm, a sanctuary for many of these animals.

About a year and a half ago i saw a post from Horse Rescue Relief and Retirement Fund Inc (Save The Horses) and i liked the page. Since then i have been keeping up with their news and rescues, sharing in triumphs and tragedys.
Last year i decided to try and make a difference and i got my own rescue, Joe. We started off doing great then Joe got an injury. He started to recover but then sustained another. The recovery has been long and trying but we are determined to not give up. I knew Cheryl and her staff works with all sorts of cases of horses ranging from neglect, abandoned, retired etc so i reached out to her for some much needed advice and guidance. Not only did she do that but helped with a bit of Joes vet bill. They not only help the horses they bring in to their care but help others like me who are looking for the light in the darkness.
My Joe means everything to me and for a complete stranger to lend a hand and give advice, it means so very much. Joe and I are very greatful as im sure are all the horses who have been rescued, rehomed and saved.
This charity is so wonderful and deserves the recognition it should.
Thank you.
Nichole Mitchell & "Look Out Joe"

Squirrelwood Equine Rescue and Sanctuary is a small but mighty horse rescue. Their work with rehabbing horses is incredible, starved, broken, pulled from slaughter pens, local emergency rescues - SES is there. Despite donations being low and many horses to feed, vet expenses, retraining, medical treatments - they love the horses beyond compare. Please visit http://squirrelwood.org/

As a horse owner and lover I see many abused and neglected horses and have been witness to the need for rescues like this group. They are doing much needed work with open hearts to mend broken spirits. Horses have much to give their humans, just ask any one who is owned by one. Please check out this wonderful rescue.

I have known this rescue group for a long, long time. They will ALWAYS go that extra mile to save an animal. They travel all over this country in order to make a difference to some poor, hapless creature that is in desperate need of help. And, they will raise the funds needed to ensure their rescues get the best medical care available. These are truly selfless individuals who are devoting their lives to saving the abused, the unwanted and the hopeless. They have a huge, dedicated volunteer base owing to the fact that they are so kind and so loving to all God's creatures.

Cheryl Flannigan is an amazing individual and so is her sister, Michele Williams. Together, they have been instrumental in saving hundreds and hundreds of animals across this United States. The Horse Rescue and Relief Retirement Organization is one in which you can place your complete confidence and trust. It's all about the animals and it is the animals who will benefit from each and every penny this rescue receives from the wonderful, caring people who support their work.
