CENTRAL VIRGINIA HORSE RESCUE
January 16, 2013

Central Virginia Horse Rescue is an organization that works hard to ensure not only that their goals of helping the equine community through working with owners, regional animal control agencies, and auctions, but they also remain responsible stewards of the donations they receive. They ensure donors know where the money is going, make responsible decisions about spending, and work to include their supporters in different decisions.

I have proudly been a supporter and donor since 2012, but watched them for a time before making the decision to contribute. I have watched CVHR work tirelessly to help neglected and starved horses recover in a healthy way (not rushed), and celebrated more than 100 adoptions since their inception. Without question, when it is time to add ponies to our family, I will not hesitate to look to CVHR.

CENTRAL VIRGINIA HORSE RESCUE
October 25, 2012

I "found" CVHR on-line, when I began looking at horses again to one day join our family and fill the void of my beloved OTTB who had passed years ago. I spent much time and effort reading and studying and paying attention to what was said by the volunteers at the rescue as well as by others about the rescue. Having only heard the best about all of them, from Cindy (the founder) as an excellent horsewoman to the families who have been made better and bigger by adopting those that have been saved and helped by CVHR. I do not donate lightly, nor do I give of my time and efforts to groups I feel might be all good intentions and not enough actions. Clearly, CVHR and Cindy and all the volunteers have earned both my trust and utmost respect as horse rescue. It is not an easy calling, but they do it with whole hearts and bodies. When it is time for my daughters to receive their first ponies (as I once did), theirs will be rescues, and I will trust Cindy to know the right match from those saved by CHVR. I have continued to be impressed not only with the hard work she puts into the care of the horses, but also with the administrative side of running CVHR - she is careful with the monies donated and ensures that what she does is transparent, so there are never questions about where our donations are going. Thank you, CVHR, for letting donors like my family participate in the little ways, and thank you for being there for these beautiful and life-changing creatures when they are in their time of most need.
