PEOPLE HELPING HORSES
September 27, 2011
This organization does not meet my standards and I’m concerned that it may not meet your standards as well. Every volunteer meeting the Executive Director informs us that they are XX amount of money in the hole and yet she has 18 of her personal horses, 10 of which she personal bred, at the barn. She has more personal horses in barn then rescue horses. Currently she only has 6 rescues in the barn for training and 14 horses out on pasture. Some of those horse have been there for over 3 years, the amount time I’ve been there. I have been informed that the horses on pasture are waiting to come for training, when they can afford to put them in training they will.. I’m not comfortable having 18 of the Executive Director’s in the barn and having staff and volunteers clean up and take care of them, when they have 14 other rescues waiting to be worked with. I thought the goal of the rescue was to adopt the current horses so they can stop the 2 year freeze they have been on. I do not feel like this rescue is sincere about their mission or their funding.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
In the beginning this organization was great but it is really going down hill in the amount truth they speak and the success stories are less and less.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would change the Board of Directors because some one needs to take responsibilty.
