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.

This rescue is so awesome. They go out of their way to help several other rescues. They have auctions for art, jewelry, and horse related items. Definitely worth 5 stars in my opinion.

Special Horses has helped a lot of non-profit horse rescue groups in many ways. SH does fundraising to help these groups by hosting on-line auctions and other "virtual" events on their website. Plus SH has a good presence on social media to promote the cause of horse rescue, adoption and horse welfare and brings much needed attention to the organizations they help.
