Review for The Golden Carrot, Inc., Anza, CA, USA
Selfless. Honest. Persistent. Courageous. Extraordinary. These are a few of the words that describe Casey, the heart and soul of The Golden Carrot. I have known Casey since 1996 and can attest that her dedication to provide a loving home for unwanted and abused horses is unwavering. With her Irish tenacity, she started a small rescue operation and turned it into a 501c3 with room to care for and shelter more than 40 horses at any given time. The kind of commitment and sacrifice required to make such a transformation is humbling.
While Casey has some intermittent help, her organization is unique because she essentially does all of physical labor of feeding, cleaning stalls, etc., on her own 365 days a year. She has a special relationship based upon mutual respect with each and every horse in her care. She knows each horse’s likes and dislikes and moods and is in tune with the intricacies of the relationships among the herd. That kind of attention to detail is just another thing that makes The Golden Carrot so special.
It is a shame that when Casey is not working a very rigorous schedule, she is in a constant struggle to find the financing to keep The Golden Carrot’s doors open to the horses that are fortunate to call it home.
There is not a more worthy and genuine charitable organization. Every penny donated goes directly to the horses. Casey will go without food before they will. She lives simply without many of the comforts of home we take for granted. She works tirelessly to honor these noble creatures by allowing them to live out their days with dignity and the proper diet, exercise, medication and the peace that comes from knowing that they are finally safe in their forever home.
