Place for Peanut is AMAZING! The help and love they give to these beautiful babies is life saving to these sweet horses. We've gotten two cuties through them and I can't even begin to tell you how blessed we are to have these little guys. They bring us so much joy every day! If you're able, please help support this wonderful organization! And if you can adopt, you won't regret it!

Megan is a true animal lover and a Place for Peanut is is an awesome facility. The rescue horses and minis are well cared for and have plenty of room for shelter and land to romp. APFP relies on donations to rehab and rehome horses. Please donate or adopt!

this organization gives hope and a future to so many ponies/mini's/horses & donkeys that would otherwise have NONE! What an amazing job all these volunteers do. These rescues require so much more than physical nourishment - they require emotional care and lots and lots of patience and LOVE! It is such a blessing that Megan and the many volunteers give all this and more.

Life saving equine care is provided by the team at A Place for Peanut. I just can't say enough good things about the TLC they give to miniature horses who are saved from the kill pens. These innocent horses are given veterinarian attention and lots of love. In turn, they become pint-sized therapy horses or are adopted to loving homes. A Place for Peanut is a special sanctuary thanks to volunteers with big hearts. Please consider donating to this charity so they can rescue as many precious horses as possible.

I volunteered for A Place For Peanut one day last Summer. I've never met a group of people so willing to help these beautiful animals. For centuries, humans have received services from horses and other "beasts of burden" with little or no compensation. Here, they are fed, brushed, bathed, and loved the way they deserve to be - not killed!

Megan and Joei with APFP not only rescue horses from the clutches of death, they make them a member of their families. They also give other families a chance to witness the type of unconditional love that only a horse can give. I highly commend and recommend the APFP family for your next outing.

A Place For Peanut Inc, would not be possible without the heart and soul of Megan Cardet. She has not only saved the lives of many miniature horses, but she has brought joy to countless children. Her adoption program allows families to learn what caring for an animal truly means. Megan has saved the lives of horses that have been neglected and abused.
It is pitiful to see how many horses are headed to the slaughter house. A Place For Peanut Inc saves lives, and radiates love.
It warms my heart to see children come to the stables, and interact with the horses. I think it is wonderful that special needs children come to the stables, and are filled with joy when they see and ride the horses. It is a magical place where animals are saved from death, and where parents and children can learn together what it means to love and respect life. It teaches children that although there are some very cruel people in the world, there are angels like Megan Cardet who work hard to preserve life.
It takes other kind hearted people, to get the word out that funds need to be raised. Without the kindness of donors, charities like A PlaceFor Peanut Inc would not exist. If Megan and her volunteers can be up at the crack of dawn feeding and grooming the horses, I feel that making a donation is easy. Donations are also a necessity to keep these animals fed, cared for, and loved.
In honor of Bob Allen, co founder of A Place For Peanuts, I ask that the sports community to step up and donate.

I volunteered to visit the facility after making a financial donation. The horses were extremely well cared for. You could immediately see Megan's love for these animals. She works tirelessly with each one ensuring they are healthy or getting back to good health. She allowed us to feed them, walk them around the pasture, brush them, play with them and love on them. I was able to see my dollars at work. I left feeling extremely happy that my donation went to a good cause and helped with something I could tell Megan was passionate about. Since the visit I have recommended A Place for Peanut to others as a place that could use their support.

I live in Dalhart, Tx - a long way from Houston - but Megan is friends with my son and daughter-in-law and we are avid animal lovers. They told me what Megan was doing to save these precious horses during the flooding. I gave a small donation but I follow A Place for Peanut every day. I am amazed by her love, tireless work and efforts to rescue and save these horses. It would be wonderful if everyone cared and loved the way Megan does. I love to read about the ones that go to their new homes and are loved by children and taught how to treat animals. They are God's creatures so we are to treat them as such. Megan is truly a blessing to these animals and to all that know her personally. I hope to meet her soon!!! Nell Summerour

I've been watching Megan Cardet's Facebook posts about A Place for Peanut, and the one thing that always strikes me is her and the organization's PASSION to save these beautiful horses. When I see photos of A Place for Peanut's horses, it breaks my heart that these animals have been abused or neglected, and would often be dead if not rescued by a Place for Peanut. Truly, this organization's heart is to save and restore horses where they'll survive and thrive. What a blessing to have a guardian angel looking after these horses. There is not a more caring, compassionate organization around, I don't think.

We at the Animal Emergency Endowment have worked with Megan and the staff of a Place For Peanut multiple times. We find their mission to be such a worthy cause not only saving the animals from slaughter but training some to be of service to others!

I would recommend A Place for Peanut for both rescue and adoption!

As a fellow nonprofit equine rescue we feel A Place For Peanut is definitely above average! TMMES has worked with this rescue via FaceBook on several rescue operations as well as trying to help them during a flood.

I would highly recommend them for rescue and adoptions.

We adopted Sweet Pea and Picasso a year ago. We adopted them from "A Place for Peanut". A Place for Peanut recused them from a slaughter pen. They had been starved and severely neglected. Megan and her volunteers nursed them back to health and we were thrilled to provide them with a new forever home! Great organization doing great work!
