Review for Save A Forgotten Equine, Silverdale, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Save A Forgotten Equine has developed a rescue model that thrives on transparency and allows volunteers, donors and others who may simply follow from afar to join in a community effort. Key decisions are made by a board of directors in a fiscally responsible manner, training is emphasized over warehousing, and follow-up visits on adopted horses, along with a "return policy," protects the horses from getting seriously off-track again. Best of all, participating connects you to other caring individuals throughout the horse community.

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

Connecting with the horses

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

other caring horsepeople, some with lifelong experience

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

I don't think it would work 10 million bucks as it works best on a local level - but it could be cloned across the country.

Ways to make it better...

I didn't have to drive so far...

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

Maintaining the program in the face of the current economic situation and continuing to attract volunteers with new skills and energy

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

Every organization is only as good as the people involved at that moment - the best way to evaluate a rescue group is to participate!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
