I host a Public Affairs show on WIL in St. Louis & I had Wendi Neckameyer, President and Founder of Special Horses on as a guest to talk about the organization. Hearing her passion & learning so much about Special Horses, I know this is something I could feel comfortable sharing with my listeners. I am also grateful to Great Nonprofits because without you I never would have found Special Horses & I wouldn't have been able to help them spread the word of their mission &, believe me, their mission is one that needs to be shared.

I have a dear friend that runs a 501(c)(3) horse rescue in Pennsylvania, and Special Horses nonprofit has tirelessly raised funds to help her save horses. They hold online fundraisers and auctions on social media, and the money they've raised helps pay for the rescued horse's care, veterinary expenses, dental, and farrier. This is an excellent nonprofit!

Special Horses is dedicated to raising funds to help horse rescues help horses in need. Horses who have been starved, abused, abandoned.
They also do a tremendous job of helping to raise awareness about the issues of horse abuse and slaughter.
A wonderful organization that does so much good!

TIER-True Innocents Equine Rescue is one of the organizations assisted by Special Horses, Inc. Their fundraisers to assist horse welfare organizations have helped make a difference for the horses of TIER. Their fundraisers are beneficial to our volunteer staff as well because Special Horses does ALL the fundraising work.

The performance of this charity in helping rescues across the nation is commendable. Thank you for being there for so many!

I run Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society, one of the organizations served by Special Horses, Inc. I've had nothing but good experiences with the organization. They conduct fundraisers to benefit horse welfare organizations, and in my experience the events are well-run and we receive donations/proceeds from them in a timely manner. They've always been great at communicating with us promptly and assisting us whenever needed.
