Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animal Services, Animals

Mission: Our mission focuses on using a network of fosters, volunteers and sponsors to rescue horses seized by or surrendered to the Animal Control agencies of Clark County, Nevada. L.E.A.N. has been the last hope for many horses and donkeys with no place left to go. L.E.A.N. is unlike other rescue programs in that we do not have a physical ranch or sanctuary. All the horses are placed into private foster homes and cared for by the members of that house or barn. L.E.A.N covers the cost of feed, medical, farrier and other needs while the animal recovers under the loving care of its foster home. Our goal: No more Unwanted horses in southern Nevada

Results: 57 horses and donkeys rescued since our inception in 2012; more than half rehomed to loving families.

Target demographics: rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses and donkeys confiscated by Animal Control agencies.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 20 horses

Geographic areas served: southern Nevada

Programs: medical and behavioral rehabilitation, feed assistance, sterilization, and general horse husbandry education.

I am a CPA with a strong background of experience with non-profits. I do the tax compliance work for LEAN too. Because of my experience, there are many organizations I would never donate to because I can intimately see how the money is used. This is not the case with LEAN. I am a regular donor because I know my money is going to the horses and these people do this work for the right reasons. I couldn't be happier donating to a local charity for the care of animals.

LEAN / All Vegas Horses steps in to rescue and rehome unwanted horses in Las Vegas and partners with animal control officers to assist with the care of these animals. The system is already overwhelmed with small animals and not equipped to gentle horses. LEAN has a network of volunteers with the expertise to help. On more then one occasion I've had the honor of witnessing such teamwork between Animal Control, the local equine vet and a small army of tireless volunteers with support of donors to save and rehome these magnificent creatures. Without LEAN these
Horses would go to the feedlot and most likely slaughter

LEAN is a great charity that is run by all volunteers. I've helped them with their golf tournament for the past three years and every year we make it more fun and we raise more money. I'm proud to help my community through LEAN Horse Rescue.

Wonderful organization. Check out their site. Watch theses horses transform from skin/ dones & un trusting to beautiful confident animals with a positive future. It's amazing to be part of this journey. I fostered a paint who came to lean at the worst condition possible. She recently was adopted and lives a great life with her forever family . Now loves her weekend trail rides. This is why L.e.a.n is so amazing.

I love how much this group cares about the animals they take in. I have taken a fond liking to this group because as a donor you get the before during and after updates of the animal they are saving. I never have to wonder if they are miss using the funds donated as you can watch these animals thrive in their care and make it on to their forever homes. The amount of time the volunteers give to the horses is so heart warming to me. LEAN holds a special spot in my heart and my daughter heart.

LEAN has the most caring, generous community of horse lovers. It's so heartening to see people from all disciplines and experience levels volunteer their time and TLC, open up their barns, give donations for feed, medical care, farrier care, transportation and training to save neglected and abandoned horses in Southern Nevada. Because of LEAN's community support, these horses transform from starving and dejected to healthy, happy equines. It truly takes a village!

The group of people at L.E.A.N. are amazing! They take horses that have no hope, rehabilitate them, and hopefully be able to adopt them out to their forever home. Or in the case of Annie and Branch they provided them a green pastures to live out the rest of their life with love, peace and comfort like they deserved!

I’m a mechanical engineer who used to live in Las Vegas. I became involved in L.E.A.N. as a volunteer. I’ve been privileged to meet some of the most compassionate, caring people while I worked as a volunteer. This is a great non-profit organization.

A wonderful nonprofit who have saved the lives of otherwise abandoned, neglected, or abused horses. All of the volunteers are wonderful caring people truly dedicated to literally bringing these horses back from near death. And the difference LEAN makes does not stop there. The rescued horses become wonderful companions to their adopters. It is truly a life changing event to see the difference this rescue group has made.

It would be nice to have an email or phone contact. Your service to these lucky horses & burros is highly commendable. I want to recommend you for a charitable auction, but you need to be reached, but not by a box number.

Thank you for your comment. Our phone is at our website, FB page, and listed here at Great NonProfits. At our website, under the Contact Us tab, is our phone as well as a way to submit an email to us directly, which is allvegashorses@gmail.com. There is only a PO Box because we do not have a ranch facility - all our horses are kept in foster homes. I hope this is helpful.

I would like to recognize the L.E.A.N. nonprofit that works with rescue horses. I have never seen so many people working so many hours of their own time dedicated to the rehabilitation and placement of these rescue horses. They work so hard to bring the horses back to good health and then get them ready to ride. They are a group of knowledgeable individuals who truly care about the welfare of the animals.

I have met the people of L.E.A.N., and they are among the most passionate group of volunteers I have ever met. It takes a lot of skill and love to bring some of these abused and neglected horses back from "the brink", but with so many offering their talents and time, the job gets done...bravo, L.E.A.N.!!!!!!

I have been donating monthly to All Vegas Horses/L.E.A.N. For over 2 years and my experience with this organization is 100% positive. They rescue abused and neglected horses and have volunteers that provide a safe haven for these poor animals that were abused and mistreated by people who apparently have no heart. L.E.A.N. works miracles with these animals and it is so rewarding to see their path to healing and know that I helped in some small way. I have no doubt that my money is put to good use. These people love horses and work tirelessly to rescue as many as they possibly can. A better non-profit than this you will never find! Thank goodness they are here in our community.

When I decided to get a companion horse for my TWH I went online to search the available horses for adoption through L.E.A.N. I went to one of their "horse fairs" and got to meet some of the volunteers and learn about this great non-profit. The horse I had seen on line wasn't at the fair so I arranged to meet him. He had been seized by animal control for abuse and neglect. He was very, very afraid, most likely never rideable, and difficult for farriers. But he was being fostered and cared for by wonderful people . He and my TWH are now best buddies and with the help of my trainer; Concho has come along way. I am a proud donor for L.E.A.N. and would recommend them to anyone looking for that "special" horse.
