Mission: BGB Horse Service and Rescue is devoted to helping abused, abandoned, neglected horses. We also serve as a resource for those impacted by financial emergencies in this economy. We work to get the horses in the best physical condition possible, identify their individual needs, prepare for a new home and place them in the home that they will flourish and be loved. We provide a home for "lifetimers" due to certain health issues or disabilites which may limit their ability for a new home. Lifetimers, are used in social therapy with handicap youth and adults who visit our rescue, and go on visits to schools and other organizations for educational purposes and therapy. We want to educate people on the responsibility of horse ownership, train them in such while helping all to understand the beauty and value of these majestic creatures. We respect the stewardship that we have been given in this world, and feel that everything is worth a second chance.
Programs: BGB visits schools and has on site field trips for special needs children. Horses are taken to schools for students to have the chance to learn. They visit the facility and get the chance to interact with the horses and others. They can feed, brush, ride, water and rope. While there, they are guided and watched by BGB Staff and Teachers. They get oportunities that they might not have elsewhere, while learning about these beautiful animals.
I've taken the opportunity to both donate time and resources to BGB Horse Rescue. Over the years, I've contributed to many worth causes, and I can say I'm extremely satisfied with BGB.
Not only have they welcomed my help on their facility, I have watched as they have been very respectful of the donations that are received. Feeding and maintaining over 30 horses on any given day is both time consuming, and resource intensive. Each donation has been used directly for the horses benefit, and I've never seen any frivolous spending by the founders, or their helpers.
I can confidently say that I fully support BGB Horse Rescue's mission, and also there organizers and their use of funds and resources.
