No story - just familiar with this great rescue group for horses. They are truly missioned, dedicated, hands on, follow thru, take excellent care of any rescue they can take in and truly deserve total support from the community as they need financial support to continue being there for the many neglect and abuse horse cases they work so hard to handle and rescue.
.

As Presdient, Founder of a 34 year animal shelter in Chas SC (Pet Helpers) where all animals are kept until adoption - a private non profit adoption shelter, that, as well depends on community support, I know the hard work and dedication it takes to care for these animals.
I urge total support of LEARN.

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

I was initially involved in a multiple horse abuse complaint, filing charges, and ultimately LEARN took on the rescue of the horses once they were taken thru legal channels. Followed the care and results of the horses cared for by this dedicated group of people with homes found for many.

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

Nothing I can add here

HUG found out about LEARN through a Facebook request to our friends as to which nonprofit we should pull into our rotation for the end of the year 2011. I have been amazed at all they have been able to accomplish so far on their own. We are certainly looking forward to raising the visibility of this amazing non profit in the local Charleston SC area.

LEARN provides every horse with food, clean water, superb medical care, a home until a forever home is found, and love. Al receive respect and even those who can't overcome age and illness do not die alone. Comfort is provided as long as they live, and they always receive LOVE!

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

I have seen the dying brought back to life. I have seen the unwanted placed in forever homes.

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

Give them more land to consolidate the operation.

Lots of bang for your buck with this horse rescue. Tireless volunteers and Board members work hands-on with individuals and animal control to rescue starving, neglected, abused horses and ponies. They make every dollar stretch to rehabilitate and give these animals a second chance.

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

The six horses I adopted from L.E.A.R.N. have been wonderful additions to our farm family. I have adopted out 2 of these beautiful horses to "forever" homes and hope to help with more. The horses I have were starving and neglected and through L.E.A.R.N's efforts these animals were brought back slowly and with great care to healthy, adoptable horses.

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

Make them even bigger so that more horses in the south could be rescued from dreadful circumstances.

I have know Elizabeth Steed for about 2 years now. What I have learned is how devoted she is to saving helpless animals. She primarily rescues horses; however any animal in need is always welcome. She is blessed with a understanding and caring husband and a great band of volunteers.

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

I have seen the results of LEARN's caring and love of horses. Taking the weak and making them strong again.

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

I cannot think of anything I would change.

In these hard economic times it's usually the animals that suffer most. People stop giving because they cannot. We must remember even the littlest donation can be big!
