Review for Beauty's Haven Farm And Equine Rescue, Inc., Morriston, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Beauty Haven is Home to so many horses that were the worst of the worst where no one even thought they could possibly live thru what has been done to them. I have to admit there were quite i few that I said to myself My Goodness how do these Poor HOrses endure the pain of what was done to them. But Theresa and the Volunteers Never Give Up . THis truly is not only a Safe Haven for the abused but HEAVEN . though i dont get to be hands on volunteer any more due to work and TIme shortage . Its so true that it takes a Village to raise just one. and Her crew of Volunteers are dedicated Hard working,! Its tiring endless dedication with little time for relaxation for theresa and the crew. Please if you see your neighbors animals being abused, and starve DONT WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO CALL. !!! pick up the phone call the authorities and keep on calling them if you have to. !!

Beauty Haven truly is a great new start for all the horses that enter thru those gates. THey all work tirelessly and many round the clock when there is a bad situation horses have human care thru the night if called for . Slings are a common thing where the worse of the worse that no one thought would ever make it . are cared for round the clock for weeks till they are strong enough. Beauty Haven is a true rescue rehab and its HOME for the horses Always.!! They never give up! and belive no matter how hopeless the situation , they all get a chance to LIve Again. Some wont make it but they are always treated with love and dignity on their last days. THey know love before they Cross Over.. GREAT JOB BEAUTY HAVEN AND THE VOLUNTEERS THAT KEEP IT GOING.!

A friend told me of Beauty Haven Equine Rescue over 1 year ago. I got on the website and read a story of Zanyah a malnourished arabian mare that was left in a pasture to die after her knees had given out from a 300 lbs man galloping her across the pasture. My heart went out to her and they were asking for donations to help! I knew i had to help. My friend took me there and I have been a volunteer ever since. The Batchelor family that runs the rescue and the small staff dedicated staff of volunteers truly care about every horse that comes thru the rescue. Theresa does not skimp on medical,nutritional, hoofcare,dental,whatever needs to be done to rehabilitate every horse. She will find a way to get it done. Theresa knows no limits to helping all horses.If she hears of a horse in need, she won't rest till she does her best to get that horse help. There are just too many that need help and its discouraging to know that you cant help them all. Beauty's Haven is truly a blessed place. All the horses that are brought to this rescue just know that once they are here they are safe and will never know hunger or abuse again. Truly you can see the light return in their eyes and the relief in their hearts that they will know love and caring and never go another day hungryor beaten. Some are just too far gone when they arrive and if there is no hope they will cross "" RAINBOW BRIDGE"" knowing their last days were filled with love and they will cross with dignity. All horses are evaluated by the veternarian when they arrive, their teeth and hooves are attended too and a refeeding program is started to slowly put on weight if they need it. So you can just imagine the costs of treating 30 plus horse and the time involved. Theresa runs on very little sleep and her family has dedicated their lives to helping these horse and she depends on the volunteers and the wonderful people who donate to this cause. The horses deserve a 2nd chance and it is truly amazing to see them trust humans again after they have been so abused by humans. To sum it up :: Going thru the Gates to Beauty's Haven Equine Rescue is probably what it feels like to have died and Gone to Heaven for these horses and you really see they way the other horses at the rescue let them know that they are safe now.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

THE UNENDING AMOUNT OF DEVOTION & LOVE TO REHABILITATING EACH HORSE. EVEN IF IT MEANS SLEEPING ROUND THE CLOCK IN THE BARN TO STAY WITH A SICK HORSE. GOT TO MEET SO MANY PEOPLE THAT CARE.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

THE STAFF IS RELENTLESS AND HAVE SACRIFICED EVERY MINUTE OF THEIR LIVES TO HELPING HORSES. THE VOLUNTEERS ARE CARING WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHEN YOU ARE BEAUTY HAVEN ALL YOUR PERSONAL PROBLEMS DONT REALLY COMPARE TO WHAT THESE HORSE HAVE ENDURED

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

THEY COULD EXPAND TO HELP ALL THE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED HORSES, SET UP A PROGRAM FOR HANDICAPPED CHILDREN, CHILDREN IN ABUSIVE FAMILIES, WHERE THEY COULD HELP TO REHABILITATE EACH,EDUCATE PEOPLE ON HORSE CARE

Ways to make it better...

IF ONLY I COULD MAKE MORE TIME IN MY PERSONAL LIFE TO BE THERE TO HELP MORE.IF ONLY MORE PEOPLE WOULD FEEL THE NEED TO HELP THE HORSES

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

GETTING THE LAWS TO CHANGE TO PROTECT THE ANIMALS. GETTING PEOPLE TO STOP ABUSING ANIMALS AND CALL FOR HELP IF YOU CANT CARE FOR YOUR PETS. THIS IS RUN SOLELY ON DONATIONS AND IF PEOPLE GOT MORE INVOLVED THEY WOULD WANT TO HELP.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I AM GRATEFUL FOR BEING A VOLUNTEER IN THIS WONDERFUL PLACETO HELP THERE IS A LOT OF WORK TO DO AT ALL TIMES AND WHEN I GO THERE I KNOW THAT ANYTHING THE VOLUNTEERS DO,NO MATTER HOW SMALL IS SO APPRECIATED. WE TRULY FEEL A PART OF THE RESCUE.
