The workers are very passionate about the care of the horses and work very hard to rehabilitate them. Small but very effective. I am proud to be a volunteer.
when I came to the Linn County Animal Rescue I was that a bad point in my life these people have hearts as big as the animals they take care of
they are constantly changing and improving the facility Linn County Animal Rescue is by far the best
I have loved horses all my life and as I can't afford a horse right now, I choose to help all the horses at LCAR. Everybody volunteers their time, no one is paid so I know they love the horses they are helping. I have seen the horses come into rescue in bad shape and after loving care given by the volunteers, be adopted out to great homes.
I have been lucky enough to visit Linn Rescue in person. They have horses in all stages of life, and those that have been recently brought in show hope in the eyes of each and every horse. They are once again loved and being treated as they majestically should with good food, clean water, clean stalls, fresh grass, and lots of love. Linn Rescue gets some of the worst cases of abuse, and have so much love for each one that arrives. They have a great bunch of people who work very hard.
As a hands on "verified" equine rescue and sanctuary, LCAR is a "place of healing". Abused and neglected horses need a place to heal both physically and mentally, that place is here. Each horse is treated as an individual with individual needs. A group of dedicated volunteers see to the needs of the animals, everything from clean stall to clean horses. The re feeding program that has been developed for the starving rescued equine has a very high success record. Help this very worthy rescue help the horses in need. Its all about the horses.

My husband and I have been volunteers for over 2 years. We do it because of our love of animals. LCAR is a very caring place for the abused and mistreated horses that have been seized by the Sheriff. Everyone is volunteer and works very hard to help these horses have a better life.
LCAR has provided our community with an extremely valuable service. This organization and its wonderful volunteers tend to a large number of animals each year. They take horses (and many other animals) that are in serious states of medical decline and neglect. The animals are then professionally assessed and a recovery plan is developed and progress monitored.
Once these animals are brought back to stable health and weight they are worked with and assessed. They often become eligible for adoption. The animals for adoptions go on to be 4-H horses, companions, trail horses and endless other ventures. But without LCAR many of these animals wouldn’t have a future. Instead they are able to become healthy, happy and LOVED companions.
OUTSTANDING WORK LCAR!!
I became a volunteer at LCAR when I moved to Oregon almost 2 years ago. It is a way of giving back to all the horses I have owned and loved. No one is paid for anything, work or donations. We get nothing from the county or state to support the horses that are siezed and all the medical and feed is a gift to bring them back to health. Everyone gives their all for the horses. Many are permanent residents as they have medical issues, but we give our all to make their lives happy. It is very rewarding work.
