I consider FRIENDS ranch my second home. My second family. After first starting on February 25, 2012 this place means everything to me; the people and the animals. It is a very friendly environment for all ages. I learned and am still learning everything there is to know about horses. IF I COULD I WOULD LIVE AT THE RANCH

My family and I have volunteered at FRIENDS Ranch for a couple of years. We find the experience to be rewarding and working with the horses is wonderful.

FRIENDS Ranch is the greatest place to volunteer at. You are interacting with the horses, goats, pigs and donkeys as well as working with a great group of people. Everyone is helpful and upbeat. It is a ranch that the whole family can enjoy and know they are doing something positive for the animals. I have volunteered with FRIENDS for the past 12 years and love every minute I've spent working there.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how they care for the animals and love what they do.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

caring for the needs of the horses, goats pigs and donkeys

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

upbeat, enthusiastic and willing to help...great team spirit

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy land for the horses, build state of the art stables and never have to worry about depending on donations to survive especially when the economy isn't doing well.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

I started off at the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. ranch just loooking to get a. horse to ride for my daughter and I. From my very first visit I saw how much love the owner has for these horses. So many of these horses come from a sad places or was on their way to be put down. I have seen many horses come in that are starving because of owner neglect. The transforrmation of these horses from sick to healthy is nothing short of a miracle. It takes a lot of love, nurturing, time and compassion to make these animals healthy again. There are a lot of caring people there from kids, teens to adults that volunteer there for hours but mostly because they truely enjoy and love these animals. For me personaly being around these horses are therapeutic for me. I can go there feeling stressed spend a few hours with my horse and leave feeling like a new person. I believe we get more from them than they do from us....

I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S. it's a great family run organization and is a very family oriented place. I've been volunteering there for over a year and I love it. All of the horses are very soothing to the soul and are great fun.

Amazing horse ranch for any out door or animal lover. After arriving at the ranch from unthinkable conditions, these horses are respected and allowed to live a stress free life. They deserve at least that. Families and individuals can sponsor a horse which is just like owing your own horse with out the huge expense. Run by an all volunteer staff, the ranch is always in need of volunteers willing to work hard while enjoying what they do. Visit the wesite: www.eiahorses.org for all information needed for volunteering and sponsoring.

FRIENDS is one of the only true horse rescues I have seen. Horses have been rehabilitaated from abuse and extreame neglect. They take horses that anywhere else would be put down, due to medical conditions, age or prior owner's inability to make money using the horse. All of the horses at this ranch are worthy of a happy "horse" life and did not deserve their prior treatment. If you are reading this please make an effort to donate to help continue to save the horses.

A wonderful place for any animal lover to volunteer. A great way to own a horse with out the major expense. Anyone with desire can volunteer or sponsor a horse, no experience necessary. This is a wonderful organization saving some beautiful, soulful animals in need.

Just an all around wonderful place! I can't believe the difference this charity has made not only in lives of deserving horses but also in the lives of the families that volunteer there. FRIENDS rescues abused and would other wise be destroyed horses and turns them into loving, well cared for animals. It has made a great difference in my daughter's life to watch and be a part of this transition. I highly recommend this incredible charity

My family and I have volunteered at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. for about a year now and we sponsor several horses. Our kids, now 19 and 15 have always been animal lovers, but this organization has touched us in a way we would never imagine. While we do give a lot of our time in volunteering, we truly believe, that we get more out of it than we give. To help these amazing creatures, all have differing stories as to how and why they were rescued, to find a safe haven in a nuturing and caring environment is incredibly satisfying. I don't know where these horses would go if it were not for an organization like F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

I occasionally volunteer with a friend who sponsors a horse at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I love the dedication she has for this organization and the love in her voice when she talks about it every day. There is always excitement with her about being able to spend the day there. However, I have noticed this from EVERY sponsor I have interacted with at F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Although they only sponsor one or two horses each, they dedicate their time to numerous horses at a time, making sure each are loved and cared for. I enjoy how they are constantly taking the horses out in the pasture and not being "stuck" in their stalls. This organization also has a lot of volunteers and are regularly organizing activities for all the sponsors to attend such as barbecues, trail rides, Halloween costume contests, etc.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have gone to F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and volunteered with the horses personally and experience first hand the dedication the sponsors have for the agency.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I feel this organization has a lot to offer and to improve their organization can 1) reconstruct their website and 2) make the organization more well-known in the surrounding communities.

This organization is GREAT!! I sponsor one of their horses, and I help with the morning feeding one day a week. All of their horses receive individual care and attention. No expense is spared when it comes to getting the horses the medical treatments they need. They have numerous volunteers that work hard to make it a great place for the animals and people. Much love to F.R.I.E.N.D.S.!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I see all the animals every week and I do a feeding shift that also requires me to give medications/treatments, so I see first hand how much the organization puts into caring for the animals.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make EVERYONE help them out, because the animals deserve it! :)
