About the FarmLive and Let Live Farm, Inc was formed in 1996, and incorporated as a 501c3 charitable non-profit foundation in 2002. Starting with just four horses, the farm has expanded to over twenty horses, three barns, two round pens, a series of corrals, run in shelters and an outdoor riding ring. Shayla is a blind 16 year old leopard Appaloosa.

The Live and Let Live Farm, Inc provides a safe environment for animals and people to interact. Through a volunteer network, co-ownership and sponsorship programs, people learn horsemanship and how to care for horses, and horses are rehabilitated. We plan to work with school districts such as Chichester and Epsom, prison rehabilitation programs, and youth groups, among others, implementing programs that will give people that wouldn't normally have a chance this opportunity to work with horses. The benefits of building relationships with horses and people include physical, emotional and mental aspects that have been well documented and will lead to both animals and people having more productive lives.

Our MissionLive and Let Live Farm, Inc is an animal shelter that rescues abused and unwanted animals, mainly horses, and provides them either a temporary or permanent safe place to interact with people. We strive to rehabilitate and or retrain animals, leading to increased confidence and self-esteem, and relationships that benefit both animals and people. When applicable, we will try to find appropriate homes for rehabilitated animals. Those animals that are considered un-adoptable will be given lifetime care at our farm.

I have a lot of health problems and was looking for someplace I could just go and actually feel like I was making a difference. I started at a different shelter but feel like I was making a difference. Then I found the Live and Let Live Farm. It has changed my life so completely, not only do I feel like I am actually making a difference when I go, but the farm makes a difference in my life as well. It has made me so much happier and given me something to look forward to. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found the Live and Let Live Farm; and I don't know how I got along before I found the farm! The farm has become an important part of my life I am so glad I found it!

I have been a volunteer at Live and Let Live Farm for over a year now, and it's such a rewarding experience to help the animals that come here: mostly horses, but also goats, sheep, pigs, cows, all different kinds of birds and fowl, bunnies, kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs. If it weren't for Teresa taking these animals in, some of them would be in the most horrid condition, if not dead. We've had horses come to the farm on the verge of death, so emaciated and starved they can barely stand up, and thanks to the tireless work of the innumerable volunteers, now the horses are healthy, happy, and loved. My fondest dream would be to see as many horses as possible in forever homes with experienced horse people, so they can all have all the attention they need every day.

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

There were three horses that came from a Premarin farm in Canada, and they hadn't had much, if any, positive human interaction in their lives. They were very skittish and it wasn't even possible to touch the male. After about 4 months of consistent and caring attention, I was finally able to not just groom all of them, including the male, but walk them as well. Now, over a year later, they are sweet, friendly, and always greet me with "hugs" whenever I stop in to see them. What a great feeling!

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

I would bring in tons more volunteers, especially hardy people who don't mind heavy work. A lot of the paddocks need to be cleaned more often, but there just isn't the manpower to accomplish this on a daily basis.

Live and Let Live Farm rescue is like a large family in a very comforting environment that the animals even become calm at and enjoy Very close to nature and wildlife it is a very spiritual and fulfilling place to volunteer

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

the rehabilitation process of starved and abused animals and it is a life fulfilling and heart warming experience

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

Find them more money to help them do their work in rescuing as many animals as life would allow and wish I didn't have a regular job so I could volunteer all my time and also help recruit other volunteers

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the family environment of working together to help as many animals as life will allow and the growth and improvement physically and mentally in the abused animals that come to Live and Let Live Farm Rescue in need of help.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Pleasant, caring and family like environment. Willing to share their knowledge and experience in the handling and care of animals of agriculture, mostly horses

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Oh, my God, I could not even imagine what that would mean to this organization to even have 1 million, 10 million would buy more surrounding land, rebuild old facilities, hire some staff, and not have to worry how the next dollar would feed the animals

Ways to make it better...

I could spend even more time at the rescue instead of having to work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the lack of donations in this awful and challenging economy which makes it hard for the rescue to care for and help more animals in need as large animals are alot of work and very costly to feed and care for.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have learned to feel really good about myself in making a difference in such needy and caring lives.
