I had some wormer that I wasn't going to use so I went looking for someone to donate it to. I wanted someone or a rescue that I could believe in and I wanted to be able to visit the place I chose. I did a web search and Speak Up for Horses was one of the sites that came up. I called and spoke to Shelly and she said that she would appreciate the wormer. During our conversation she mentioned she used the same vet practice I did. I called my vet and inquired about the organization and why I wanted to know. They gave a very high recommendation and for my vet to do that is not something to take lightly. I went to the location where the horses were kept and was given a tour of the facility. I was very impressed with the cleanliness, organization of the facility, and the way the horses responded to Shelly. She knew each horse by name and was careful to let me know which ones were still fearful of strange people. I was impressed at the dedication and love that where given to the horses. This is a wonderful rescue! The horses are given what they need in order to have a better chance at being adopted in a happy forever home. This is a rescue where each horse is an individual and treated as such. Lucky is the horse that gets rescued by Speak Up For Horses.
