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.

The dedicated work and commitment of this organization's volunteers (100% including Board) continues to amaze. The photo results speak for themselves as the horses recover, and LEAN continues to work in the Community to help avoid neglect in the first place. Going strong for over 5 years!

I am blessed to have been a previous volunteer with this group, and can't say enough about the teamwork and sheer, genuine care and passion this team puts into their ever important work! I have been involved in rescues for almost a decade now, and can honestly say this is the most successful, well-run, and genuine groups I've had the pleasure of being involved with.

LEAN takes unwanted, mistreated horses and provides them the best opportunity for a safe, healthy, and successful future by ensuring proper medical care, maintenance, and training. They carefully review applications for adopters and make sure it is the best fit for all.

Not only does L.EA.N. save horses, they unite the horse community. Riders, trainers and horse lovers of all disciplines and walks of life come together to volunteer what they can to help. It takes a village and with L.E.A.N. leading the way this community will save many more.

I'm impressed with the work that LEAN does for rescued horses, some with serious issues. They take the time that each horse needs and provide the care to ensure that everything is done to help each horse thrive. LEAN benefits the horses they save and also the community. It's encouraging to see a local nonprofit that operates so effectively for all of the horses in their care.

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 continues to be the best option for abandoned and abused horses in Las Vegas. The list of volunteers grows each year, creating an ever greater opportunity for the success of the animals taken under their care. In addition to all they do for these animals, they have added H.A.H.-N.A.H (Have a Horse-Need a Horse), a way for those looking to rehome their horses or to find that special animal not currently in foster care. More communities could benefit from these types of programs and I commend all who are involved.

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!
