I have had great experiences with People Helping Horses. Volunteers and staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The horses are beautiful, always well fed and cared for. Some rescues out there are just scams, take your money and don't care for the horses. Here the people are real, the horses are real.

As a child, my parents introduced me to the love and companionship a horse provides. We were a military family but kept a home in Tom's River near Lakehurst Naval Base where my horse waited my return to the states. Riding was my passion as a child and has endured into adulthood. I now enjoy riding in Palos Vedes, Ca.
People Helping Horses is a wonderful organization dedicated to providing for horses in need. It's a great feeling knowing that the financial support or time you given saves the precious life of a wonderful animal. I so appreciate the work this group does for horses. Thank you. alana

People Helping Horses is a wonderful charity. Their dedication, caring, and devotion to horses is boundless. We appreciate all that they do and would love to help them even more. As a member of NYClass, a group that is fighting to get the horse-drawn carriages off the streets of NY and end the abuse of horses, we need People Helping Horses more than ever!

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

photographs, updates, newsletters, and magnificent thank you's (e.g. the calendar with the gorgeous photos of rescued horses).

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

like to see People Helping Horses more visible--more posters around the city, commercials, etc.

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

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.

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

I can not find a part of the program to criticize

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!

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

seeing the many reports of starving, abandoned horses they have rehabilitated and re-homed is heartwarming

I have been a donor of PHH for years and have always found them to be truthful, very hard working snd doing their wonderful and compasionate work in spite of very difficult conditions (bad weather, lack of funding, short staff).

This is one of the charities that deserves to be helped because they do not disburse monies like a great many of them do, but they provide the services themselves.

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

I have contacted them on several occasions and always gotten a truth ful and prompt response.

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

I would try to find ways to raise revenues

I have been contributing to this organization for the past few years, and all I can say is that I wish I could do more. Those behind People Helping Horses are among the most committed, caring people I've ever known. They use their donations wisely and efficiently so that the maximum amount possible goes directly toward the care of the horses.

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

I haven't experienced anything personally, but I've been able to follow all of the wonderful things PHH does.

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

Can't think of anything offhand.

I have been involved with People Helping Horses for some time now. Since I live in Florida, I have never had the privilege of visiting or meeting anyone in person. However, I feel close to them through email and regular mail correspondence and I always look forward to hearing about their extraordinary work and progress. They have always responded to my emails with personal responses and I believe in many, many ways they are beyond a top notch animal/horse advocacy and rescue organization and they will always have my full support and attention as long as I am able.

I wish them the best of luck and pray for them to always be provided with abundant resources to continue their extraordinary and compassionate work for the horses in their care.

I have been inspired by the extents that this organization goes to in order to save abandoned and abused horses. I also admire the fact that the horses can remain at their facility forever if they are not or cannot be adopted into good homes. I have donated hundreds of dollars and will continue to do so. I encourage anyone who loves horses or just wants to help save animals to donate as well.

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

I rejoice in each and every horse they are able to help.

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

Not change anything.

My daughter became a horse lover after her first trip to Girl Scout Camp at the age of 6. Because of that, we found PHH. Their work to help the horses is so wonderful. It is one of my favorite charities and I donate as often. If I lived near them, I would volunteer all the time, but it's a little hard to get there from the east coast. I feel good about helping them help the magnificent animals who so deserve to be treated well. I am glad there are people out there like Gretchen who can handle all of the emotional ramifications of a rescue organization like this!

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

Satisfaction at helping the horses.

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

Somehow ensure they had enough money to save all the horses.
