I've had the pleasure to visit with the people and horses at 4R Animal Shelter.
The volunteers pour their hearts out working diligently to care for the horses
and other animals that find their way to 4R's doorstep. Not only do they receive
excellent care and lots of love, but the volunteers expend an incredible amount of time
fundraising and educating the community on the realities of caring for horses.
The cost to feed and care for these beautiful creatures is astronmical. If anyone
would like to help; 4R opens their arms and hearts to all that wish to contribute
time, ideas or money to keep these horses safe. I can't say enough good things
about the people and shelter. Thank you for all you do.

My husband and I are volunteers. Every volunteer, visitor, guest, horses and other animals are all treated with respect, kindness and consideration of abilities and schedules. It is a great and caring place to spend time and energy helping take care of the horses and whatever other animals are there at any given time. It is fun working with others that feel the same way! Come visit if you can and you will see for yourself.

I had the opportunity to visit 4R Animal Shelter and work with a few of their horses to help with a fund raiser. I was very pleased with all I have learned about this organization. While I was there and since. The work very diligently at fundraisers to raise money needed to care for these animals. The ways they go about it are amazing. Some of the things they do are for the horse community and others are things that help out just about anyone from near and far. Everything they do gives back to anyone who may help their cause. I feel very blessed to have met them and be apart of their giving to the community.

4R came together due to the efforts of local folks wanting to make a difference. 4R has faced hurdles and overcame them. Each and every volunteer at 4R, there are NO paid positions, has a vested interest in the success of 4R. Each horse or other animal coming into 4R is handled with love and confidence. We want the animals to understand that they will have food and proper care for their health and well being. The volunteers and board members know that each of them is as special as the animals we work with.

4R Animal shelter is a loving, caring, and inviting stable for abused and/neglected horses. Not just the owner/operator but the volunteers that chose to come an help out on a daily basis.
