I started volunteering at AAE about a year ago, and I have not been disappointed. I have experienced a wonderful group of people working together for the common cause of rescuing horses. Being part of this team has truly enriched my life.

Four years ago we were looking for another horse. Our others horses had come from another equine nonprofit rescue. We wanted to continue our practice of embracing rescued horses. Since the last nonprofit rescue proved to be lacking ethical standards, we continued our search. Finding All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) turned out to be a true blessing. The director was very open with us regarding the nonprofit. We were able to obtain all information regarding their board, finances, veterinary services, etc. We were amazed at the transparency of AAE. After finding our wonderful horse, we felt so at ease to continue donation regularly. We also help financially with their fundraisers, medical issues, and general care. Two years ago we were able to find another horse from this organization. We feel blessed to know the honorable and virtuous nature of the rescue and its director. They have an all volunteer group taking care of the horses, each having such dedication to the cause.

When I first learned about All About Equine rescue I knew nothing about the terrible things done to horses. I myself am not a horse person so I asked what I could do to help out to save horses. The founder Wendy is just a friend and explained that they need all kids of volunteers. I decided that since I had a pickup Maybe I could help with picking up donations. Well that soon turned into making weekly runs to the feed store for Hay.55 gallon barrels of feed along with many other things needed. I have since moved away from the area but I do miss helping such a great cause. I miss all the volunteers who were always there to help me unload what ever I brought back to the rescue. Dave was the best of all and he always laughed at how I unloaded the hay, but was always there to bring the bales to the back of my truck. Is there a better rescue in the area. Not at all. theses people do the very best job possible as far as I am concerned.

This group is top notch, state of the art, natural horsesmanship plus to all who enter. They have a nurturing core group that makes sure all things great and small are taken care of before fostering or adoption.

When I started coming to this rescue, I didn't realize how much I would fall in love with the place, the volunteers, and of course the wonderful horses. It's an unbelievable feeling to be able to see the horses trust people again and heal. Some have even become a completely different horse by being at the rescue. I have seen horses come in very sad and defeated and leave as a happy, free spirit to their new forever homes. It is a rewarding experience every day I am able to go.

I have been volunteering with AAE for almost 2 years. The amount of planning and dedication my fellow volunteers give to make a difference in the lives of the horses is amazing. I can't imagine not being a part of it. The barn is definitely my happy place!!!

I started volunteering at AAE as way to give back to my community. Little did I know that I would gain so much more than I could ever give. It is a privilege to work beside so many hardworking and dedicated animal lovers. Of course our horses are breathtaking which makes it easy to spend time caring for them until they're matched with their forever home.
