Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc.
September 25, 2013

I am a volunteer, donor and client served by Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, Inc. It was hard to choose just one from the list of roles.

I have seen many of the horses upon their arrival into the rescue so I have seen them in their worst and in their best condition. I can ensure you that every horse that Jo rescues gets the best of care and retraining. When I look into the eyes of those horses that could have very easily ended up in the slaughter pen had Jo not rescued them, it breaks my heart. At the same time my heart is filled with joy knowing that Jo worked hard to get those horses to safety and into the rescue.

I am also an adopter of an Angel Acres horse. I adopted my pony and I love him dearly. I think it's great the way Jo screens potential adopters and ensures that every horse goes to a great, loving home.

In general, Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue is a top-notch, well run, compassionate rescue organization. I never hesitate to donate money and I always know my money is going to help the horses whether it be for feed, hay, vet or farrier expenses. I support other animal rescues too but, Angel Acres is my top, number one, favorite rescue. Thank you Jo and everyone at Angel Acres for all you do for the horses.

I have the privilege to do volunteer work for Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue and I have seen the sweet, beautiful horses that are brought into the rescue. If it were not Jo Diebel and all her volunteers, these dear animals would most likely go to a horrible fate. Jo works very hard to ensure that every horse who gets adopted out is healthy, sound and re-trained. I know this first hand. I see it every day! Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue operates with honesty, integrity and with the utmost loving care for EACH and EVERY horse in their rescue facilities.

Not only does this rescue save horses but, they help people who have fallen on hard times via Mattie's Legacy Fund by providing money & resources for hay, feed, vet care, etc.

All these reasons and more are why Angel Acres Horse Haven rescue IS my favorite and top horse rescue for which I choose to volunteer for and support.

I became aware of, and involved with, Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue a little over a year ago. I have seen, petted, fed and loved some of their rescued horses. I look at each one and think how could anyone have sent this sweet, beautiful creature to the slaughter auction, abused or neglected it? But, at the same time, I am very thankful that Jo was there to save each of those horses from a horrible fate. Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue is a well run, outstanding wonderful organization and one that I am very proud to support.

The Great!
