I am very proud to be a long-time supporter of Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation and am also very proud of the fact that they received their Verified Status with the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). GFAS is the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries. To be awarded Verified status, an organization must meet GFAS’s rigorous and peer-reviewed animal care standards which are confirmed by a site visit and they must also adhere to a demanding set of ethical and operational principles. This organization is very well run, the horses get the best of care and it is a pleasure to be on the end of adopting a horse or donating a horse. You can't go wrong putting your support with this organization in any capacity!

This is a wonderful organization. I have watched this organization grow and blossom over the past 9 years or so. It is obvious that the horses and their care always come first. They work very hard to make the correct matches between horses and adopters. I do visit the farm on a regular basis and the horses are all very happy and content, and of course very well cared for. All of the people who run this organization are volunteers, 100% volunteers, there are absolutely no paid employees at all. It is clear that they love what they do and really do care deeply for horses.

I have volunteered to Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation for a few years and this is a magnificent organization, very well run. They set the bar high for what rescues and adoption programs should be. The horses receive the best of care and there are visitors to the farm continually and many volunteers on-sight. Each horse in their care has it's own personal thread on their discussion forum with updates and new photos besides it's profile on the adoption page. You will find so many success stories of adoption horses on the discussion forum as well. It is a great place not only for new people to see what the organization is about, but the donors of horses they have taken in can watch their donated horse in it's new adoptive home when the adopter posts their updates. Many equine professionals have adopted from this organization, including veterinarians and this organization comes highly recommended. They are experts in rehabilitating the neglected horses that come into their care and I urge you to go visit the discussion forum and look around for some of these very heartwarming stories.
