WEST PLACE ANIMAL SANCTUARY
August 26, 2011

West Place Animal Sanctuary rescued a horse that was very dear to me. Since he was rescued, his quality of life has increased greatly. He came from a rocky and dusty paddock and now thrives in a field of tall green grass. He was always alone and now lives with another horse and an assortment of cows, goats, ducks, and the most BEAUTIFUL swans. To see him standing beside a swan, a greyhound and a bunch of ducks is a very funny sight. Each time I visit, I am amazed at the personal attention and care that each animal receives. Before coming to West Place Animal Sanctuary this horse suffered from a long and painful illness involving his two front feet. He wore shoes that were heavy and thickly padded and caused him to trip frequently. He spent so many hours laying down in his paddock that people passing by would stop to offer help. Now, after receiving awesome veterinary care he stands for as long as he likes AND stands barefoot! As a community, our lives are richer, more humble, and compassionate by the examples set by West Place Animal Sanctuary.

The Great!

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

I visit the sanctuary often and spend time with the animals. I have the absolute pleasure of seeing animals in need of love and care receive both and more.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would be very full of myself if I were to suggest any changes that this sanctuary may or may not need to complete. I could not possibly do a better job than they have already done. They opened their hearts, expanded their knowledge and, in my opinion, they did it all on a wing and a prayer.

MY ROLE:
Client Served & I connected them to a horse in need of a home and special care.
