Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society
May 10, 2011

Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society (BEHS) and their President/Executive Director, Jennifer Williams, PhD., are both highly respected in the horse rescue community.

Founded in 2005, Bluebonnet has taken in over 535 horses into their fostering program, a program implemented by Dr. Williams when she was President of Lone Star Equine Rescue which she co-founded in 1998. While many rescues operate from a single facility, BEHS has a large-scale foster home network, which can help more horses and the horses benefit from one-on-one hands on care and attention from their foster home.

I am one of the original co-founders of BEHS, I have served as an officer, a director and now a volunteer and foster home. Having been on both sides of this organization, it is well run especially considering there are over 500 members spread across Texas and parts of Arkansas and no single office/facility location. BEHS has an active volunteer staff and many more members who volunteer to foster, help with fundraising activities, inspections on the horses in foster care, inspections on foster homes before a volunteer can foster and inspections on adoptive homes. Many volunteers spend countless hours per week of their time, to help the equines through Bluebonnet.

BEHS' web site at www.behs.org will give you more information about this organization including policies/procedures and financial information.
