I would like to address a comment made some time ago by oohayliam64 who claims that we had been calling and mailing "stuff" to them for more then six months. Firstly, we have not, or would not call anyone, unless at their specific request. If anyone wishes to not receive any literature from our organization they simply have to ask us to remove them from our mailing list , which we would be happy to do, it is a very simple process.We would not wish to waste resources contacting people who did not wish to be contacted.

It would be helpful for all charities, if people, when making comments, try and be honest and constructive, not destructive.

Castleton Ranch Horse Rescue in partnership with two other rescue groups descended upon a low-end auction on Saturday evening in Southern California. Every horse that went through the auction was saved, not one was left behind. They even saved a pregnant mare from a drunk man in the parking lot who had arrived too late for the auction. The killer buyers and such as those did not know what had hit them as they left the auction with empty trailers. What a wonderful achievement, made a little more special so close to Christmas. Kudos to you Castleton Ranch.

I have also received direct mailings from this rescue, and if the callous people who complained about them had bothered to look a bit deeper, they would have found their answers in the founders' statement. People who visited the ranches found them to be of superior quality, and the rescued horses in optimal condition. That's all caring people ask for!
I am happy to contribute what and when I can!

My friend and I recently visited Castleton's Ranch in Valley Center and without a doubt, it is the most impressive rescue ranch that we had ever visited, and I have visited quite a few. The paddocks are large, the ranch is very clean all of the horses were in wonderful condition and looked very happy. The staff were very helpful showing us around and the ranch itself is beautiful. I have been a donor for some time now and I will continue to be in the future. Keep up the good work Castleton Ranch.

I know that many, many horses have been abandoned, neglected, and abused. The situation has gotten worse with the recession. Unfortunately, many people thoughtlessly acquire horses without the means or dedication to care for them. Thus the rescues are left to try to help.

I believe many rescues and sanctuaries need better fund raisers. Their mailings have become more irritating to the recipients than helpful to the rescues. The letters are boilerplates that follow the same pattern for most sanctuaries and probably cost a lot. However, without the fundraisers, most people would not know of the rescues or their work.

Personally, I check the cause and if it looks legitimate in helping the animals victimized by people, I try to overlook the fundraising issues and contribute.
