I have been involved in horse rescue for many years and had experiences with many different organizations during this time, and I can say without a doubt that SAFE is the best one around. SAFE operates with about 95% of their donations going directly to the horses care; they have no paid staff members and are very open with their financial information. SAFE not only provides all necessary medical care for their horses but they also provide training to help ensure that when these horses are adopted out that they will be a good match for their new family. I have seen SAFE help horses young and old, providing them with not only food, water and shelter, but with love and compassion valuing each life.

This rescue operates with honesty, integrity and absolutely always in the best interest of the horses!

I learned about SAFE several years ago through comments from their clients and local horse people who are in the horse rescue and rehabilitation business. SAFE is ethical, unselfish and so hard working. Their events are great fund raisers and opportunities to share information about horse rescue. SAFE has a long, proven record of good business practices and friendly, caring staff and volunteers.

SAFE is an excellent charity, with of a Board of Directors comprised of the most experienced, compassionate, and knowledgeable horsemen. Having dealt with other supposed "rescues" in the past, I can state with certainty that SAFE is an organization that will put donations to productive and appropriate use, has the ability to make those funds stretch as far as possible, and most importantly, sees that the equines in their care truly get all treatments, training, and care that they will need to become valuable in the eyes of a potential owner.

SAFE is a well-rounded charity. They not only excel in rescue, they get the horses healthy before beginning training. Then, they work to train the horses professionally and when the horse is ready, they secure a home that fits. In addition, they do this in a reasonable amount of time and with limited funds.

On the administrative side, they are the most transparent charity around. Active discussion boards, frequently posted financials and absolute transparency on who and how decisions are made.
