Review for Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Inc., Lisbon, MD, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This is not a 'rescue' as most people understand the term. This is an arm of enforcement which only deals with horses when enforcement involves them in a case. They are not neutral. They actually brag about helping to document and prepare cases for the prosecution!!! Seriously??? I'll send my money elsewhere!!!!

Review for Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue Society Ltd, Mount Airy, MD, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Based on my initial review, I received a message from the director of this rescue. They claim that they file their tax returns in a timely manner, but as of 9/11/2012, there is still no record of a 2011 Form 990 per Guidestar!!! Is that being timely????? I think not!

Review for True Innocents Equine Rescue, Riverside, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

It appears that TIER is but another of the plethora of horse rescues who think they can ignore the accounting and live off of the public's donations. This rescue is based at the director's own personal property and she is behind on her mortgage. How can they ask the public to bail them out? Why is the rescue mixed with personal property?

Review for Days End Farm Horse Rescue, Inc., Lisbon, MD, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Please review Dr. Henneke's written statements regarding the performance of this rescue in the Canterbury case. Absolutely unbelievable facts presented by Dr. Henneke!!!! Between their shenanigans in the Canterbury case and the fact that they openly state that they euthanize horses to make room for incoming horses makes this rescue the worst of the worst on my list. We need to change the laws to make this sort of group illegal.

This rescue cries for money, but spends over $700,000 on property!!!! We want to see the 2011 Form 990 to see more of the true story behind this overzealous rescue!

Yes, after saving for 5 years, Gentle Giants was very excited to finally able to purchase it's own farm in the rescue's name. Gentle Giants purchased a 51 acre farm that was a turn-key equine operation, and the monthly cost is approximately a $3,000/month savings from our leased location. Additionally, we are no longer slave to a landlord who can raise rent and change terms, or end a lease with little notice. With 60 horses in residence, it would be difficult to relocate with short notice. All of Gentle Giants financial information is posted on www.Guidestar.org in a very timely manner for the public to see. Our annual independent audit is also available, and our monthly Board of Directors meetings are open to the public if you wish to attend or have any specific questions. If you are not local, I am happy to answer any questions you may have about our funding and how it's used. You can email me at info@gentlegiantsdrafthorserescue, or even call me at 443-285-3835. Thank you! Christine Hajek, President
