CNEER is the most AWESOME place, We cherish every minute I spend there as a volunteer. We travel three hours from Maine to help out as often as we can. It is like a little piece of heaven! Vicky and all the volunteers work tirelessly taking care of and loving the horses. What a GREAT group of volunteers they have there. Vicky puts the horses needs above her all the time. We can't think of a more deserving non-profit. Just love them all!!!Pam Rowbotham-Fournier and William FournierAuburn, Maine

Love this great and loving group of volunteers. I couldn't picture my life without caring for horses. There is something about a horse that has lost all hope and realizes, with time, that his/her life is going to be safe and loving that melts everyone's heart at this rescue. Now, i get to do it daily. The pictures are of Little Willie when he first came into the Rescue and the next photo is finding his favorite person in the world

We had the pleasure of adopting a “Special Needs” Sicilian Donkey from Central,New England Horse Rescue. They first called and asked us to make a prosthesis for him. My wife and I chatted and then asked if we could adopt him. They thoroughly checked our references, along with a board member stopping by our home in Florida to check our facilities out. We passed and have very proudly accepted Luigi into our lives. He gets a new leg yearly, sometimes just to give him a new color. I am a Certified Prosthetist/orthotist and I specialize in large animals.

I've been a volunteer and supporter of CNEER, off and on, since 2006. All the people involved with this rescue, including the many volunteers, work very hard to make sure these horses have whatever they need. It's especially rewarding when one of the horses gets adopted and leaves for their forever home. CNEER is a wonderful non profit, I'm happy to be a small part of.

I got involved with CNEER around 2006 because of Ambassador Montague, aka Monty. Monty was the first draft to come to the Warren barn and into the rescue. Vicky convinced me to come and visit this sad boy who had worked so hard for the Amish and then was sold at auction to a Boston Carriage driver who abused him because he wouldn't load on the trailer to work the streets of Boston. Generous women gathered the money to save him from going to slaughter and got him into the rescue. I can't begin to describe, in words, how much this horse stole my heart. He was one very special boy who through the rescue had many followers and people who loved him so much. I became totally involved with the rescue and totally fell in love with Monty. I had never been around a horse of his size and with Vicky's help I learned more in just a few short years than I had ever learned in the past. Everyone involved, including the many volunteers, do it for the horses. Each and every horse saved has a story and when you hear about their story you can't help but want to do what you can to help. Vicky is a very compassionate and caring teacher and watches over these magnificent horses 24/7 and Betsy's love of horses has been the same since she was a little girl. The only payment they get is from so many success stories of horses that have been saved, rehabilitated, and rehomed. My life has forever changed because of this rescue and especially Monty. Please visit their website and watch their posts on Facebook. There are so many wonderful rescues out there but this one is truly a gem.......Cheryl Syriac

Honestly some of the most amazing people working together for animals we care so much about. I’ve always loved horses and knowing I can help, even if it’s only one, and make some wonderful friends along the way is amazing. I started volunteering during a hard time in my life. The horses taught me about hard work, doing something selflessly for a bigger purpose, and a lot about myself.

CNEER.... I arrived on their doorstep 9 years ago and have never left. What I found was a caring, legit, well organized group fully devoted to their task. All rescues are medically cared for, well fed, properly groomed, have regular visits with a farrier and last but not least, are given much love and respect. Whenever possible the rescues are found loving "forever" homes. I'm proud, honored, and grateful to have been taken in by this group. It's really more of a second family ....

We grew up together, meeting over our love of horses. We were in the local 4-h club. That this family who loved horses so much started this wonderful rescue, isn't surprising. So proud of all they've done. They're the real deal. They've helped not only the horses, they've helped people and countless other animals. Such a wonderful carrying group of people.

I've known Betsy and her family for about 27 yrs. Since the Ludlow 4H Saddle Pals days. The amount of care and love,the way they looked, and talked about their Abe, you could tell how dedicated they were to him. Now thank goodness they are sharing that with so many others. As you can see, it's not just the horses but to all the kids and people involved. They give so much time and money to save, restore, love all these animals. It's woderful. But it doesn't stop there. It extends to dogs, cats, chickens :), rabbits, whatever needs love. What a great group of people. It's an inspiration. I'm glad to know them!

The work that CNEER does is invaluable to the horses that they rescue and bring back to health. Without them, these beautiful, spirited horses would not be on this Earth today. By giving these horses the gift of a second chance at life and recovery through endless amounts of love, they have created a remarkable model organization. Not only do they help horses, but also people. In a world where society and people can often be discouraging and faith can easily be lost in humankind, those who are in charge and volunteer at CNEER restore one's faith in humankind that can only be found in the most genuine and kind-hearted people. Vicky is the absolute most kind and gracious person I have met in my life. She brings light and love into the hearts of each person she meets. It is no wonder that the horses that come to CNEER thrive and trust so much after a life of abuse and neglect. This is an extremely special place where people work tirelessly to get nothing in return but the privilege of having a hand in helping animals in need. Their work is absolutely essential and makes our world a better place, "one horse at a time". CNEER is a place for both human and equine healing that should be celebrated and recognized for what it is. In CNEER I have found a lifelong home and love for helping animals in need. Their service to these horses far exceeds any expectations and is driven by the selfless love of those who represent it.

Words are not enough to express how remarkable this rescue is and how rewarding it is to experience its light. The rescue is a safe haven for both animals and humans alike. It has become a sanctuary for me where I can forget about everything else in the world and just do what I love the most. I became a volunteer in September 2015 and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. During my time here, I have been lucky enough to form bonds with amazing horses who otherwise may have had no second chance at life. There is nothing like being able to give back, make a difference, and do what you passionately love with the animals and people you have come to love all at once. I am forever grateful to this rescue for the opportunities it has provided me and for all the inspiring friendships I have found here. Even though I have not been lucky enough to have my own horse, I am able to come to this rescue and have 12 horses to love and care for. There is one horse specifically, Logan, who I have come to love as if he is my own, truly making life worth living. I am so grateful for Vicky and this rescue for teaching me what love, passion, selflessness, and dedication really mean. Vicky makes everyone feel so appreciated, welcomed, and loved )humans and animals!). Seeing the life-changing difference they have made in the horses lives has in turn changed my life. It is tremendous how so many broken souls have been healed and restored back to their natural health with such unconditional love and care. The transformations are astounding to witness. The rescue has helped me to become a more empathetic animal advocate in the world and has opened my eyes to the injustices that horses all over the world face. I can only hope that everyone can find such a place as this rescue so that they can be as positively impacted as I have been.

CNEER is a wonderful nonprofit organization. The group that runs it as well as the numerous volunteers have the biggest hearts and will jump through hoops to save as many horses as they can. Ive been to the farm countless times and the facility is very welcoming! You can't help but smile when you walk down the isle of the barn and see all the happy long noses smiling back at you! It takes a many hours of hard work on a daily basis to take care of these gentle giants and as I have witnessed in my visits there everyone who comes to lend a hand is more than happy to do so!

I originally met Vicky while working at the Post Office. we discovered we shared a great love for horses, and other animals too. In 2003, she and her daughter Betsy started what is known today as Central New England Equine Rescue. What a great idea and a greater venture. I had, previous to the Rescue's birth, gone to Vicky's to help with the horses she owned. At the very inception of the Rescue, I had a wonderful time volunteering to help out. There is nothing that smells so good, at least to me, as a barn with horses, hay, tack and the "end" result of what goes into the horse and subsequently exits the horse. I have so enjoyed being a part of the CNEER family and I look forward to helping whenever I can. It's an awesome learning experience and life experience. God love Vicky and Betsy's dream and their hard work to make it all come true. The horses come from varying experiences of neglect, abuse, abandonment and just people unable to care for them. Vicky, and Betsy, have performed "miracles" many times over in saving these wonderous animals. Keep up the good work, everyone. So much love to be around!!!

I’ve been volunteering at this amazing rescue for almost two years traveling 45 minutes almost every Sunday. One of my favorite horses,Rusty, was adopted a few months ago. Although it was very sad for me to say goodbye to him I was overjoyed by the fact that he was going to his forever home which has, from the videos that I’ve seen, been a perfect fit. There are so many other equally heartwarming stories about these horses that have been rescued out of some pretty awful circumstances and are now being loved and well taken care of either at the rescue or at their new homes. These magnificent animals are the reason I look forward to getting up on my day off and heading out to West Brookfield. I have learned to help groom them as well as the cleaning of the stalls. I learn about their individual personalities. They give me so much more than I can give them.

CNEER is one of the few equine rescues
In our area that operates with the animals and sustainability in mind. Rescued horses are cared for rehabilitated and when they are in good health are found good caring forever homes. This Cycle continues to always be able to take in another neglected horse.

On another note all proceeds go to the rescue, these funds are not put to support the resident caregiver only the rescue itself. CNEER holds several public fundraisers annually to support itself, the high attendance of these fundraisers speaks volumes to the support given to it from the public.

I was recently asked--"how did you get involved with horses rescue?" And my answer was as follows--approximately 10 years ago I attended an equine day event where I met two amazing women--a mother daughter team Vicky and Betsy-- who started Central New England Equine Rescue. At that event they took the time to talk to me, and open my eyes to the horse rescue world. I had no idea about horses being surrendered, because of different circumstances. As well as horses going to horrendous auction houses, and often ending up on brutal transports headed to Canada, and Mexico in order to be slaughtered.
Since that conversation approximately 10 years ago, I have watched Vicky, Betsy, and their team of volunteers, and donors work tirelessly to assist hundreds of horses from a possible horrible fate. Not only does this fabulous team help the horses but they also help the human owners who are struggling to keep their horses.
Personally, Central New England Equine Rescue helped me save a beautiful horse out of the auction house in New Jersey headed toward the slaughter pipeline--I named her Sophia, and she is safe, and happy in Spencer, Massachusetts.

In conclusion, Central New England Equine Rescue, and their team of positive horse advocates are outstanding-- they are equine angels on earth! I am truly grateful to be a part of this rescue, and in turn I am able to educate others on what horse rescue is all about!

I’ve been volunteering at CNEER for about five years now and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The atmosphere of this rescue is so kind, gentle, and loving for both people and animals. I feel that every horse that comes through the barn doors knows they’re in a safe place. They’re welcomed with loving arms the second they step off the trailer. Seeing the horses learning to trust again and then seeing them go to their new families is so rewarding. ❤️

My experience with CNEER has been enlightening and profound. First, I never knew that people really worked as hard as the CNEER group, and second, that the work would be so rewarding.
I was first introduced to the rescue by a friend at a pleasant dinner about a dozen years ago. I know the family that started this charity with little more than a dream and passion for caring for neglected or slaughter bound horses. I've visited the rescue multiple times over the years and am always impressed with the dedication of the volunteers and stoicism of the live-in caretaker.
The story of each day is early to bed, early to rise with life revolving around equines who are nurtured back to health. They are prepared for adoption whenever possible, or, when a new home is unlikely, given permanent sanctuary. All equines, rescued by CNEER, are cherished and given a life free from hunger and unnecessary discomfort.
Thinking about my experience with CNEER reminds me of multiple lives that they have enriched. Examples include: Juliette, who was rescued, adopted and re-rescued when the adopter failed to care for her; Sega, who lost his eyes to a terrible infection and remains a sweet and gentle fellow; Monte, a huge and mild carriage horse, with a scarred face, who was rescued from slaughter and lived to be an ancient patient giant; Lulu a shy mini-horse who survived obvious horrific abuse; and many others.
The care provided by CNEER is expensive, so in addition to housing, feeding, and providing healthcare for their equine residents, they also conduct several fundraisers each year. The fundraisers are necessary, to maintain the quality of care that they provide and a lot of work in addition to the daily chores. I highly recommend that this rescue be at the top of the list of worthwhile charities. They are a persevering and deserving group and have earned the #1 position.

I was looking all over New England for a Haflinger, with no success. Then in April 2016 I happened upon CNEER's website, and I found "Lukah", a 2-year old Haflinger cross! I spoke with Vicky Berry and my mom and I arranged a time to go look at the boy. As we drove up to their barn, we saw all the horses in the front pasture, and only one was blonde....."there he is!" I exclaimed to my mom. It was a very happy visit. Also there that morning was Karla Christiansen, or as I referred to her, she was Lukah's "Auntie Karla". We all went into the field to look at Lukah, talking about my experience, my horses at home, and what I was looking for in a new horse. Everyone at CNEER is so caring about their animals, they absolutely want to place the animals in the best possible home, and want to make good matches happen. We also met other "resident" horses at the farm, as well as several volunteers. It's a wonderful organization with wonderful people; the atmosphere is peaceful and upbeat. If we had more places like this, many more animals could be helped. So, more than a year later, Lukah is a Whately MA resident, with a Morgan horse for a buddy. He looks happy in his new home and is well-acclimated. We thank people like those at CNEER for rescuing these beautiful kind animals from the auction pipeline. Lukah's mama was in foal with him when she was rescued from the auction, so Vicky not only saved one life, but two. I am privileged to be the caretaker of this marvelous boy. Please give the rescue a call, or a visit, if you are considering adoption, or if you wish to foster a horse.

It's kinda funny how when you go to this barn to help.... You leave feeling like you are the one who should feel grateful! It lifts you up to be in this healing enviroment.

I started at CNEER in November 2013.
I volunteered for nearly 3yrs, no matter what the weather was and loved every moment of it!

I've always loved horses and what a way to be up close and personal!
I will tell you, it's hard work but the rewards are endless!

To know you are working with horses who had been horribly mistreated and / or starved and be able to see the transformation over time with love and proper care is immeasurable!

Anyone that knows me at the rescue knows just how much I love Doc!
Sadly, I don't get to see him as often as I like but he is forever in my heart!

I am also grateful to Vicky for all her hard work, friendship and dedication to running this rescue!

And to all the volunteers that I know and to all those who have come after me, I thank you for giving of your time and loving these horses.

Best Always,

What can be more noble than giving back life and dignity to these beautiful creatures? The sad truth is too often, horses are treated as disposable and left to horrific circumstances when they need our help most. CNEER works tirelessly to save the abused, the neglected and the forgotten and give them a chance to live out their days with the love and care they deserve. Such a positive and heartening thing in today's cold world.

My beloved horse Reo came from CNEER.I am fostering a beautiful mare from there now. I am so glad to see a rescue that takes in the broken,worn and unrideable hprses. I love my unrideable Reo and think the world would be a lesser place without his nose to kiss. Think about opening your heart to an equine best friend I would give Betsy amd CNEER a zillion dollars if I had it.

CNEER is an awesome place where the horses are number one. All of the volunteers and members of the board are incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming. The impact they have is incredible, on both the equines and people that have their lives touched by CNEER!

Ive been to a few functions for this charity over the years. Great people and cause. I would recommend this charity and all of their events as a family friendly building block.

cneer came to my rescue in the spring of 2011. i lost my beloved 40 year old horse chief. my other horse mac was devastated with the loss and became very depressed and anxious. i contacted cneer about fostering one of their rescue horses. within days, literally, i was taken to a couple of barns where some of the horses that were available to be fostered were housed. i fell in love with a young thoroughbred named whiskey lullaby. whiskey was going to suffer the same fate as many racing horses. he was headed to slaughter. fortunately for whiskey cneer stepped in and saved him. within a couple of more days cneer delivered this life saver to my farm to mac and i. mac fell instantly in love as did i. cneer saved whiskey's life and in turn whiskey, i feel, saved mac's life. i fell so much in love with whiskey that i ended up adopting him. could never imagine my life, or mac without him here. tried to attach a video of an average day here at my farm with the two boys playing. they really are a scream. cneer is a group of dedicated people that give so much of themselves and there is a special place in heaven for all of them!

My family has been a part of the rescue for only a year. Our daughter started riding lessons after an accident that left her unable to walk & run. Someone told us about the barn. We started with lessons at the barn where the rescue is housed, and after a few weeks my daughter was helping clean stalls and feed the rescue horses. The rescue is so much more for us than a barn with horses. To see a horse come in underweight & sickly is heartbreaking, but after a few weeks of proper nutrition and a little love, many of the horses are restored to their natural health. CNEER is run soley on volunteers who give 100% to make the barn a home!!

I will admit I was never a horse lover until I was brought to this wonderful place. A dear friend of mine wanted to introduce me to this world. I'm so happy she did. The friendly/family atmosphere at the Rescue makes you feel like you belong there. The horses all appreciate the attention and love given to them. I walked into this barn for the first time scared to death of horses and two of the horses actually reached out to me to calm my nerves and volunteers welcomed with me with open arms. The combination of these things made me want to get involved and help in any way I could. This is an organization that will do whatever it takes to save a horse in need! I have never seen a group with such big hearts. I’m privileged to know them and be a part of what they do.

We are an all volunteer 501(c)3 organization. Our ability to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for the unwanted and slaughterbound horses has grown considerably since our inception. We are very devoted to our mission and our integrity.
