I've never personally experienced the results of this organization, but trust the NYT as a news source and hope the horses' situation will be improved.

More feedback

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization?

Unlikely

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?

A lot

How did you learn about this organization?

It may not have a big impact on most people (see prev. question), but it has one where ex-racehorses and people donating them after racing are concerned. How did I learn about this? I Looked up reviews of different organizations helping ex-racehorses.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I own an ex-racehorse and have donated to charities involving horses.
