Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Fleet of Angels is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization that offers a wide range of emergency services for at-risk animals. Focusing primarily on equines, services include crisis management for large equine-related emergency events; facilitating emergency evacuations and related services during natural disasters; safe home placement of at-risk equines; discounted or free transportation of at-risk and/or adopted equines; a variety of other services that save at-risk equines from abuse, abandonment, injury, starvation, or slaughter by providing direct support, feed, shelter, equipment, or funds to aid those animals, their rescuers, adopters, or owners. FOA also provides educational opportunities to help members of the public learn to better care for and protect equines and other animals, and to be responsible owners and members of the animal protection community. Programs: HayThere! Emergency Horse Hay Micro-grant Program: providing hay during natural disasters and other emergencies Bonded for Life Program: dedicated to keeping bonded horses together during ownership transitions Safe Travels Emergency Transportation:

Results: Fleet of Angels' now has over 7500 registered members who offer services of: emergency transporting of equines put at risk by humans, evacuating of equines put at risk by natural disasters, emergency stabling while 'waiting out the storm', hay and supply banks for equine victims of natural disasters, adoption/placement of displaced equines in long term homes, search and rescue, veterinary and farrier services, education related to equine care and protection, and other services that help save equine lives. - - - FOA has evacuated countless horses from each of six major hurricanes: Sandy (Cat 1, 2012), Matthew (Cat 4, 2016), Irma (Cat 4, 2017), Harvey (Cat 4, 2017), Florence (Cat 4, 2018), Michael (Cat 4, 2018) - - - Since the launch of Fleet of Angels as a grassroots movement in 2012, we have provided lifesaving services for over 12,000 at-risk equines. - - - In 2016-18, Fleet of Angels was the facilitating organization in the largest rescue of horses in history. After being asked for help by the South Dakota State Attorney, FOA took both physical and financial responsibility for 907 horses after they had been found by the state to be starving and neglected at the ISPMB 'sanctuary' in SD. Within 22 months- with staff, volunteers and vets working incredibly long hours, the horses had been fed to a healthy weight, hundreds of stallions had been gelded, dozens of horses with hooves up to 16" too long had been trimmed, horses with injuries were treated, and the horses were all adopted in groups of two or more to good, adoptive homes*. (*A small number of horses that had injuries (broken bones, etc.) or irreparable conditions resulting from the abuse and which could not be reversed by veterinarians enough to make the horse comfortable, were allowed to escape a life of pain by being humanely euthanized by the attending veterinarians.) - - - Because of the number of successful lifesaving missions Fleet of Angels facilitates each year, the American Society of Prevention of Cruelty of Animals (ASPCA) created the Equine Welfare Award specifically for Fleet of Angels in 2017-18. That award is now a part of ASPCA's annual prestigious animal rescue awards event. - - - Everyone who'd like to become a Fleet of Angels member is invited to register at www.FleetOfAngels.org and/or www.NationalEquineEmergencyDirectory.com.

All I have to say Is that FOA is the Ideal Model for what a True 501(c)3 Not -for- profit organization should look like. They don’t grill you about the age, temperament, training of the horse in need trying to determine if the horse could work for the “program” or not.
They Are SO FAST at Taking the information they are given at a moments notice and HELPING THE HORSE as soon as Possible. No other questions asked. I reached out At 8am this morning on behalf of a complete stranger to me, Whom on facebook Desperately pleaded for help with her horses after major health and life setbacks. Right now Through the help of FOA I am on the way to bring her hay she desperately needed as well as a plan for future! We are all in this together as horse owners Lovers and advocates!

Fleet of Angels has been amazing at helping horses at Ridin' High (a certified therapeutic riding center), with emergency needs. With the very unfortunate advent of COVID, many traditional sources of funding for our therapy center dried up (including private donations since so many families were financially stressed). We were concerned how to maintain our small herd of gracious and kind therapy horses without these funding sources. Fleet of Angels came through! They quickly provided money for emergency hay which was greatly appreciated.

More recently we incurred unexpected veterinarian costs for Midnight, a wonderful therapy pony. While Midnight had won recognition as a national therapy horse, he also developed significant health issues that come with age. Fleet of Angels was again extremely fast at sending money to help with Midnight's vet costs. Thank you, Angels!!

Elaine Nash & Fleet of Angel's are the Angel's on Earth! When theres horses needing help, they are there with wings on. Our small but significant Charity is always needing hay. With the hay shortage, we were desperate. Fleet of Angel's stepped in & immediately helped feed our special needs horses in our Santuary.
The recent & third nomination of Fleet of Angel's to GREAT non profits is well earned & most deserving. God Bless all these Angel's!

Fleet of Angels has been at the forefront coordinating the moving of at risk equines from fire, flood and nature's wrath, especially this past year. This grassroots organization has made it possible to move at risk equines and supply micro grants so that their caretakers would be able to continue to sustain them in times of true hardship. Elaine Nash is a true force of nature (the good kind) and with her at the helm every dollar donated is a stretched as far as possible in order to do the most good for the most people / equine's. God bless them and grant them the ability to continue their good work.

A friend of mine was having trouble keeping her horses, as mid covid and loss of jobs were happening, cut back of hours, etc. I have followed Elaine and fleet of angels for a long time. So i knew about the hay grant. I told my friend to reach out to them, explain the situation and now medical conditions which just happened. And she had such a quick response from fleet if angels ,and that they were going to provide enough hay for the month. What a beautiful blessing. My friend just cried. She thought she would have to give up her horses who were now her mental support. Thanks to fleet of angels, many people were able to keep their animals through this pandemic.

that assist animals and there are so many out there.
But once I came upon Fleet of Angels I knew this was the
one who I would donate to when I can. They are in every state
doing whatever they can to assist horse owners in any way they
may need. Elaine goes above and beyond and is truly an Angel.

Elaine Nash and her non-profit organization Fleet of Angels are the real thing. From the micro-grants to her bigger projects, Elaine gathers together donations and makes them all count. Her clients are really the horses out there who are hungry, who get to eat because a micro-grant bought a load of hay when temporarily their owners couldn't. I can't say enough good things.

Elaine Nash provides the most kind and considerate common sense solutions and resources to genuinely help horses and the people who love them in times of great distress. Her first concern of 'how the horse will experience the dilemma he or she is trapped in' as the guiding philosophy for action in any given situation is a breath of fresh air. Unbridled Thoroughbred Foundation has benefited from both transport and veterinary care assistance from Fleet Of Angels. In both cases, the grant filled an immediate need in the best interest and service to the horses. Elaine is an exceptionally gracious and ethical leader in the field of equine protection, rescue, and well-being.

Elaine Nash and Fleet of Angels are amazing. They are committed to helping equines and those who have suffered tragedy to feed these equines. Being a rescue director I had reached out to Elaine in the past to assist others who needed assistance feeding their horses and the help was there. This time I needed the assistance for my rescue and horses after losing hay to recent floods. Hay was able to be delivered with no break in the availability to feed the horses and donkeys, putting us back on schedule for hay. Thank you, Elaine and crew are truly Angels!

Fleet of Angels came to the rescue of three mustangs after their owner passed away. I called Elaine and, she reached out to an incredible professional and generous person who hauled these horses from Texas to Missouri, maybe just covering her costs to ensure they made it safely to their new forever home! Also, I couldn't even count the thousands of horses they saved either through connecting people who need horses moved, adoptions, donating hay to folks in dire situations, and helping buy troughs for watering stations for wild mustangs on the range.
I believe they are one of the most well-rounded, caring organizations I've had the privilege of not just reading about but having them help without hesitation.
There aren't enough good things I could say that compares to what they have and do daily!
Thank you so much for always being there!

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.

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 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'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.
