Absolutely the best decision I have ever made was showing up at NEER and filling out a volunteer application! Love the people, the animals, and the mission! Mary is one of the most hard working and amazing women I have ever had the privilege of working with! Her love for these animals and her passion to rescue and rehome them is remarkable! She is the one who makes this all possible! Thank you, Mary!
This rescue does a huge amount of good work with really limited resources. I am incredibly proud to be a part of the team.
I volunteered for NEER for several months last year. Their dedication to the animals is obvious. I know they've since changed locations, and so I can't vouch for the new location, but at the old location the horses had several different pastures they were circulated through, and each was very different from the others. I think this was great. I now volunteer for a different horse rescue on the other side of the country, and the horses all have relatively boring pastures (it is grassland here after all), but I can't help but think the environment at NEER is more pleasant for the horses! I definitely recommend NEER, your donations will go very far here.
I have volunteered with NEER north for the last 5 years and it has been an amazing privilege. I have learned so much about the plight of equines in crisis and have seen first hand the work that this organization has done. Turning around horses in failing health and returning them to a renewed state of well being and a new forever loving home has been so inspiring. I have gone on to adopt an unadoptable horse myself and I couldn't be happier. Lynne Deschenes
It's been amazing to watch the equines under NEER North's care. Many come in unwanted, unloved, unappreciated, or just not able to be cared for anymore. And all of that changes at NEER North from day 1. They get the treatment, food, love, and attention needed to take that next step in a new forever home. The volunteer base is incredibly dedicated and hard-working, making sure the best things happen for these wonderful animals. It's an honor to be associated with this organization.
I am a volunteer at Neer North. It is a wonderful place, the horses get tons of attention and excellent care. Everyone involved cares so much about these animals and what happens to them.
i volunteer at new england equine rescue on friday and sunday. if i wasn't a nurse, i'd be there everyday.,and i own it all to mary martin for giving me the opportunity for more exposure with the animals that i love. her dedication to these horses truly show how special she is, and how special this place is. mary and the rest of the volunteers, kelly, lynn, john, amy, nikki, have taught me so much as i prepare for my own horse one day. there is no better feeling than walking in that barn in the morning and seeing these beautiful faces greeting you from the stalls., and lastly, receiving kisses from my boyfriend BOO! mary, many thanks-karen
NEER North is a great place to volunteer, even if you don't have horse experience there are many ways to help: office work, organizing and helping with fundraisers, grant writing, collecting donations. I have seen NEER North take a horse that someone has given up on, and turn it into a healthy, loved animal that has been successfully adopted by a loving home.
