Mission: 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 would not trust this rescue to care for a senior horse or any horse with special needs. While most animals seem to do okay there, their approach to specialty care leaves others with little hope. A mare surrendered to them in decent weight and with a clean bill of health was dead in under 4 months. They blamed heaves - which they knew the horse had before intake - yet posted a picture of the horse being ridden in a dirt arena. That alone means they were NOT taking proper steps to care for the horse. When questioned about it they became defensive and nasty. I made the decision to halt all donations to them. They took in another TB mare and then put her down when they determined she had cancer, but took almost two weeks to say so, and only did so after I posted a RIP post on their Facebook wall. If the horse had cancer then why the secrecy? There are just too many red flags with this rescue for me to feel comfortable supporting them.

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

Downsize. Or ensure the personnel taking care of special needs horses are better trained. Make a MUCH bigger effort at keeping webpages and social media sites current. They are the primary way donors stay current. Improve communication skills. Every horse isn't a seizure case, and a horse surrendered with love should qualify the previous owner a little respect and consideration.

Donor and volunteer
The rescue is a very enjoyable place to volunteer and be part of all the animals lives that you help in rehabilitation and to help feed, care for, socialize and train.
Love them all but we all end up with favorites.

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

volunteering and making a difference in the lives of the animals and the humans that also experienced the joy of adopting them.

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

I would help find more money so there is no worry about how to feed the animals that need help and the outreach program helping animals that are in loving homes but the people need help to feed and care for them through the struggling economy of bad circumstances. Than they can remain with the people they love and that love them. Also with more money staff could be hired to make it easier for all who volunteer endless hours.
