People Helping Horses does an amazing amount of lifesaving and rehabilitation with the tightest of budgets! They often train their foster animals to help them adjust to a new life of service and benefit to the adopting family.

I have followed the progress of the organization and the animals they rescue and rehabilitate for several years. They work exceptionally hard and reach out to rescue the horses in very dire circumstances.

People Helping Horses does excellent work in the horse sanctuary field. They work tirelessly to evaluate how they can stretch each dollar for rescuing abandoned horses, developing therapeutic riding programs for children gaining life affirming skills from horse interaction, and campaigning for better horse care and responsible horse owner polices. They conduct workshops for people wanting to gain skills in these areas, as well. They are first rate!

After several month of riding horses at People Helping Horses in their arena my autistic Grandson really opened up and began to have more eye contact,laughter, and generally was better behaved and less destructive. I hope everyone will see the great work they do by helping needy horses and special needs children. Please give all you can to this cause. I donated a banner ad on my business listing web site for People Helping Horses, at ElloMarysville.Com . This ad is worth over $800.00 in any advertising media. Please do your part in supporting this great organization!

I've personally seen new horses come into the care of P. H. P. with little hope of survival and after several months of TLC they had fully recovered from their neglect and/or abuse.

People Helping Horses is my favorite over all charity. They have saved so many horses. I love how they reabilitate them and train them so that they will have a better chance at adoption. I am going to get another horse in the next couple of years and am hoping to get one from them. Horses are big animals who need alot of care so it is an expensive undertaking. I am so grateful that they are there for the needy horses.

My daughter has volunteered there and I love their fund raisers including their calendar.

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

Not be able to think of anything to change.. Just hope they can keep going financially.

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

Seeing all the horses they have helped.

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

WEre terrific

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

Save alot more horses.

Ways to make it better...

This is the best horse rescue ever.

I have worked with Larry & Mary Jensen for a couple months now. They are fun to be around & work very hard for their horses. They are passionate about this group & spend many extra hours outside of work donating talents and money of their own to the cause--feeding other people's cast away horses. Many have been placed in good homes due to their diligence. Thank you Stacey Mayer for introductions to this group of caring friends!

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

friends offering their time to raise money for feeding & vetting the horses.

I had the privilege of visiting the PHH barns and helping at fundraisers with my daughter and granddaughters, all volunteers at PHH. I watched the experience bond them together and saw the character building in my young granddaughters as they helped care for the horses. Helping abused and damaged horses is a wonderful learning experience for children - while falling in love with horses and ponies, they grew in empathy and understanding for all living things. I believe they've developed what will prove to be a lifetime interest in caring for animals. Clearly, PHH not only rescues endangered horses, they also provide an invaluable learning experience for humans who have the opportunity to participate in their good works.

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

My own family.

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

I wish they had more financial resources to rescue more horses.

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

Being around horses - they're wonderful, despite all the damage some have suffered at the hands of humans.

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

Excellent !

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

Wow - it could help so many more horses and ponies in the Pacific Northwest.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of a thing.

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

Financial

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

This organization goes above and beyond all expectations in caring for abused and neglected horses and ponies.
