Review from Guidestar

We first visited SAFE when we had some items to donate. We were so impressed with the commitment shown by the staff there and how determined they are to care for and rehabilitate unwanted horses. It is so well run and Jaime who manages the program is an incredibly professional, kind and has done wonders for so many horses. I have since visited the facility twice to donate and cannot say enough good things about their organization. Miracles happen out there to rehome each horse. In these economic times when many people cannot feed and care for horses, it is even more difficult after rescue to find homes for them but SAFE has succeeded. What they do is heartwarming and encouraging for all those who love animals.

The Great!

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

Seeing happy, healthy horses with perfect new homes that were previously abandoned, starved, sick, injured or dumped in kill pens.

Help them obtain more money and support.

A friend of mine works with SAFE and I believe wholeheartedly in the importance of the organization. People certainly know about dogs and cats in need of rescue but few think that horses fall into this category. SAFE helps those animals who have no one else and gives them voice.

Focus on more publicity, possibly try to get a celebrity spokesperson (ex: William Shatner shows horses).

SAFE is a rescue I can truly support and stand behind. Boasting impressive organization, transparency, ethics and passion for rescue. I love getting the frequent updates and watching the progress of their rescued horses. They go above and beyond just rescue - they fully rehabilitate, train, and do a fantastic job placing these horses! I can feel good about donating to such a honorable organization, because I can actually see where my dollar goes. As a professional in the horse community, I fully recommend and support SAFE as a invaluable resource to our community.

I have personal experience with several of their success stories. One in particular boards at my facility - Heidi, a starved and neglected Arabian mare- now fully rehabilitated and adopted into a loving home with one of my 4-H students!

I think they are doing a great job. I have made suggestions in the past that were openly discussed and heard and some even went into effect.

I've been volunteering at SAFE for 6 months and am so happy they are there for the horses. They always find room or a foster home for a horse in a need, and make sure that all care and handling is up to par. Even if newer horses come in a bit spooky, they relax and warm up in no time. Also, the SAFE staff puts a large amount of time into rehabing and retraining horses to ensure their adoptabilitiy. A substantial donation toward a new barn is exactly what SAFE can use to offer more cozy shelter for horses in need. Two thumbs up for SAFE!

I have been volunteering with SAFE for almost 3 years and I am totally impressed with not only their care for their charges but also for the way they run their rescue. Everything is transparent. If you want to know something just ask. There have been some amazing horses that have come through horrible circumstances and SAFE has not only brought them back to health but have provided them with the handling and training needed to make an adoption a positive experience for both horse and adopter. All of this takes money...I do hope they can win this wonderful award and continue with this necessary work.

Watching horses come in close to death leave with a new owner in incredible health and as compainions on the trail or performing in the arena. It absolutely amazes me how these beautiful creatures can forgive us and get past some of the torture they've endured.

They are already in the process of making changes that are really going to benefit the organization for horse and volunteer alike. I am very impressed with the leadership.

SAFE is one of the best horse rescues out there! I have been out to take photos of some of their horses. They look content and well cared for. SAFE has many volunteers and seems to be well organized. The people are really nice. The horses they take on get great care and training, before they are placed into new homes. I am very impressed with their savvy of new media and creativity to get their word out.

I have volunteered at SAFE for about a year and a half. My experience with SAFE is that they take extraordinary care of the horses in their programs, they are responsible and transparent with regard to financial issues, and truly dedicated to helping both horses - and the people who love them.

I've gotten to be a part of caring for over 20 horses for SAFE. In my time volunteering for SAFE I've seen 12 horses adopted into permanent, loving homes.

Unfortunately, the number of horses in need in the region far exceeds SAFE's (or any single charity's) capacity. There is (almost) always a waiting list to get horses into SAFE's programs. If anything, they need more resources - a larger facility, more access to professionals who would be able to train and prep horses for a specific career.

I have first hand knowledge of a horse that SAFE rescued and placed in a home. He is a horse that most likely was down to his last chance and they brought him back and gave him the possibility to have a new life. He has been with three people since SAFE took him in and they took the time and effort to find the right home for him. Their screening process is in depth as they want a real forever home for the horses and it has payed off in the long run for them. He is just an ordinary horse, but very special to the one who now has him for he is well loved and loves well.

The results of finding homes for the horses not only rescues them but has the possibility of rescuing the people as well. This makes a difference to everyone involved as the changes occur in both lives.

Like to see an ability to have a larger facility to help more horses and humans be able to connect.

SAFE provides a critical service to some of the most seriously neglected and abused horses in our communities. I am a grateful supporter of their rescue and the safety net they offer to humans and horses who reach out to them for help.
