Ipswich Equine Rescue Corp and its founder Kathleen Hofferty have dedicated their lives to make a positive difference in the journey of helping horses, animals and childrens lives. They are true proffessionals, knowledgable, experienced, educated whom always have put the horses first. Kathleen has worked as a nurse, taken in boarders to pay the bills on all of the over 5000 horses , IER has rescued since 1994 as a legitamate reg. non profit.Kathleen exemplifies compassion, love and caring to any animal that has shown a need whether saved from slaughter, neglected, abused or improperly handled or cared for, they do the best for the horses. It todays society running a horse rescue is very difficult because of our terrible economy.Folks just cant afford to make donations anymore.Kathleen pulls through for the animals know matter what and has always put the horses first.This is a wonderful small equine rescue that deserves alot of credit for their pioneering spirit, creating media attention and public awareness regarding the atrocities of the drug called " PREMARIN", which Kathleen brought into the international public eye, alerting horselovers and women all over the world about the horrific conditions of "THE PEE HORSE INDUSTRY" Thank You IER and Kathleen for all that you do for women and animals .

i disagree with the negative statements previously mentioned about kathleen.Kathleen is a great knowlegable horse rescuer and an angel of all animals.She does not drink or abuse her outstanding position as a nurse or as a horse rescuer.These allegations are unfounded.Sounds like a bunch of jealous women.

I agree with previous experiences related here. K.H. has a drinking problem and the horses well being is not her primary concern. I worked as a volunteer at IER in Ipswich, Massachusetts, 1999-2000, and left hurt and disappointed-- and a few thousand dollars poorer.

My experience that I gained from coming in contact with this woman was an eye-opener on just how evil and vindictive people in this world can be. For those of you that knew her before she moved to Waller, maybe she "WAS" a caring person-but the woman I met was nothing close to what Carmen described (thats if there really is a Carmen).
