SAFE assisted me with placing a horse I needed to re-home. I was very grateful that they offered this service. They were professional, courteous and knowledgeable.

I would like to reiterate what others have already mentioned about what makes SAFE one of the premier rescues in the United States. The care and compassion they have for horses in distress is top notch. Their books are open to the public for all to scrutinize their income and outgo. The horses are not warehoused. They are given professional training to open up the widest possibility for placement into new loving homes. Additionally, SAFE does continual follow-up on all of their placed horses and has gladly taken any back if the home did not work out in the best interests of the horse or the adopter. They are open and honest about each horse's condition, ability and any shortcomings be they physical or psychological.
SAFE should also be commended for their ability to say no. They know their financial limits and will not take on more horses than they are able to care for which is critical for stability in an economy where financial stability and donations have hit all time lows.
SAFE should absolutely be considered the standard by which ALL rescues should be judged. Honesty, integrity, care and compassion. The very traits that are the heart and soul of a truly stellar rescue. That is SAFE.

I have had the pleasure of adopting a wonderful mare from S.A.F.E. It was a pleasure to work with this organization through the adoption process and I would gladly (and hopefully!) do this again in the not too distant future. I am impressed with how S.A.F.E took the time, effort and funds to rehabilitate and invest in this mare. Their time and work is evident in all the horses that are cared for by this organization. This is a professional, exceptionally well-run and effective rescue organization and I would not hesitate to encourage people to donate their time, money and homes to their cause.
