Being a professional in this area, that in the capacity of grant-making for equine rescues over the past 20 years, I have seen a lot people come and go. However, Elaine and her group Fleet of Angels, has come and risen above. Filling an important niche, her group organizes transport for rescue horses going from one location to another. This is very important in the nonprofit rescue world, as every dollar counts, and her group of volunteers can always be counted on to transport horses in need and that the savings to the rescues will help them care more for the horses. Also, Elaine and Fleet of Angels have implemented programs to help horse owners in need, as well as organizing emergency help for those affected by natural disasters. After 20 years in horse rescue, I can say that Elaine and Fleet of Angels is one of the best! Highly recommend!!
I have watched this group do amazing things in the most horrific situations. Helping horse owners is only a small part of what they do. It’s all about the equine. Such dedication and their attitude is that nothing’s impossible!!!
This group helps so many horses and donkeys whether it’s emergency evacuation transport services for wildfires, floods, hurricane, rescue, adoption, providing relief of hay, farrier services, for relief when people need help, and all around good stewardship and leading by example. ... Fleet of Angels is just that- a network ofpeople, willing to give of their time, across the nation, for the sole purpose of saving horses, Angels for Equines.
Excellent organization precisely focused on helping horses in need, nationwide. I was part of a team during the Hallelujah Horses project here in Colorado and witnessed first hand the dedication and professionalism on display.
I have followed and donated (not enough) to this organization. They do incredible work.
This is a non stop organization. During Covid19, when monetary donations slow, Elaine Nash knows that horse owners are at risk of not being able to them. Seemingly overnight, she puts an idea into action. Matched hay donation! People with extra hay are match with someone local in need of hay. Three spreadsheets and an interactive map to boot! IKR!
Thank you FOA, three years ago, you delivered my Hallelujah mare Karma to my house. I didn't realize at the time what a joy she would be to own. (actually she owns me now). Your driver went through all kinds of weather, was injured during transport, and yet was wonderful and kind when he came to our farm. You paid for everything, the mare was hauled almost 1000 miles and had no injuries and was not stressed. I can't thank you enough for all you did for Karma and me. I could have never afforded the fees that hired transporters would have charged.
Helped me feed a herd of six rescue horses for a month when Covid shut down my business. Absolutely wonderful!
Fleet of Angels is a terrific organization. From finding transport and shelter for equines evacuated from disaster to setting up a nationwide network to feed horses of desperate families caught in the Covid-19 crosshairs, FOA is always there. I had spare hay to donate and Elaine Nash of FOA found a nearby trainer whose horses were out of hay. Its creating those kinds of connections that help us all get through this pandemic.
Fleet of Angels has helped so very many horses find a forever home, with the incredible posse of transporters and helping hands along the way. Thanks to the insight of Elaine Nash, an amazing cross country system has been established to maintain the dignity of the equines needing assistance.
An extraordinary charity & resource...unlike any other in the United States. Much, much more than a horse rescue or charitable horse transport organization. Thank heavens Fleet of Angels & its supporters are here. We are all much better for the existence of Fleet of Angels.
Thank God that Fleet of Angels is there to help the at-risk equine population. Thankfully, sometimes they're called upon to help animals of other species as well and they are there at the ready.
I first came across fleet of angels several years ago when a friend became one of the emergency transporters, I was able to help two Mustangs and get the message to others as I followed this group in saving over 900 horses in need.
Elaine Nash and Fleet of Angels cares...really cares, and realizes their Mission through their relationships with donors and transporters and other vendors. If you care about our equine friends, you can’t go wrong with supporting Fleet of Angels...you will be part of the Mission that is always ready and willing to help...with our support.
I became familiar with Fleet of Angels and Elaine Nash when she was working on the Hallelujah Horses initiative. Her perspective, passion, compassion, love of horses, and heartfelt desire to do good for the greater good is unsurpassed. She has a saying - “Teamwork Works” - it couldn’t be truer. I feel so proud and privileged to be a tiny itsy bitsy part of Elaine’s team. She utilizes her resources so well and...she lets the Fleet of Angels work, doing what they all do best!
Thank you for what you do. You've made the lives of so many so much better. You've given hope to those who might not have a hope otherwise. Thank you for being kind hearted and for doing what you do. I don't have a horse, though I wish I did, and I don't know anyone who has been aided by you, but even still I've been following along with several of your deliveries and the happy horses you've left fed and full. Again, thank you for your time, your generosity, and the gift you've given so many.
Fleet of Angels is a true inspiration. Helping those in need from all 50 states.
Doing a great job helping horse people in this time of crises. They are providing both hay and transport.
Fleet Of Angels is a much needed organization, as they deftly play both the role of safety net, and fierce advocate.
Fleet of Angels has built up an impressive, nationwide network if volunteers and professionals to serve horses in need and their humans. Whether the need is huge, as in the Hallelujah horses, or small, Fleet of Angels responds with care and a thoroughness that ensures the well being of the horses in need. They are a remarkable organization and unique in the field.
I've been involved with Elaine Nash/Fleet of Angels since the Hallelujah horse campaign. She and Fleet of Angels have been at the forefront of disaster aid to the horse community.
Fleet of Angels is an organization you can trust. I have been familiar and following them for some time. They do a lot of good for horses, and also expose the terrible plight many face daily. People need to be made aware of the horror so many horses are subjected to, and this organization has been a leader in that respect.
I have followed Fleet of Angels (FOA) since it’s inception, and I have known Elaine Nash, the founder of FOA, for over 35 years.
Her ability to see what needs to be done and co-ordinate the resources to get it done is nothing short of miraculous. FOA is able to repeatedly get their messages of need out and co-ordinate the teams of people needed to fulfill on the mission. I have donated to FOA multiple times as I’m clear that they bring much needed relief to the places where angels fear to tread.
This is a majorly important nonprofit that steps up to the plate time and time again to help network for services and fund raise for the transport of abused and rescued horses. Fleet of Angels also helps get much needed food and supplies to horses in flood or fire or disaster areas affected by severe weather.
I am the Executive Director of the equine conservation nonprofit, the Equus Survival Trust which is a top rated Great Nonprofits recipient. We applaud the work of Fleet of Angels. Their credibility and dedication is second to none. They deserve a top rating.
I have been following Fleet of Angels for about a year now. I have not needed their services but I am SO glad to know they are out there. They work tirelessly to help the animals that are suffering or would suffer without their help. I will continue to follow and support Fleet of Angels!
I have had the honor and privledgebof working with Elaine Nash and Fleetbof Angels. She is an incredible person giving voices to those that have none. Her organization has also provided assistance to many during natural disasters. Whenever or wherever there is a need or Equine are in danger you can count on Fleet of Angels to step up to help.
I've been familiar with Fleet of Angels for a few years. A couple years ago, I learned a whole lot more.
A horse 'sanctuary' in my home state of South Dakota was found to have been neglecting their Mustangs. Most were low body scores, many had hooves that looked like skis, most were at risk of starvation, several were found deceased.
The counties in which the sanctuary was located seized the horses, which were destined for the sale barn. That's when Fleet of Angels stepped in.
Elaine Nash, FoA founder, and a few hardy volunteers spent months (that included blizzards, -50° windchills & 20' high snow drifts) sorting & shipping horses.
This was done the right way- each horse was microchipped, Coggins tested, & was issued a veterinarian travel certificate.
In less than 2 years, 907 horses were rescued & had been adopted. This was the largest equine rescue In the history of the US.
