I went to Live and Let Live Farm a short time ago to drop off two kittens in very bad shape. Within 30 second of stepping out of my vehicle o was being verbally harassed by an employee of the farm. I tried to explain that I had arranged to drop off the kittens I was rescuing from maine, but all the individual did was scream at myself and my children.
I chose to drop the kittens off here as this is why I adopt my rescue dog several years back, but no longer am I going to support this organization after the way I was treated. They should be ashamed of who they treat people.
I found this woman who runs the place to be as Cold and Callus as they make them. She was very suspicious of my visit to the place and had NO Compassion for my request. All she spoke of was the Fame she is seeking with a Movie to be made on them. I would NOT leave any of my animals there. And I would be very concerned for others doing so as well. Just visit the place and see the reception you get!!
Live And Let Live Farm didn't help my horses, that I had for 20 years. I could no longer afford them and had to find them a home. I found out a year later they were put down and euthanized. My horses had a few behavioral problems I managed with no problem they just needed extra love and attention. It seems Live And Let Live Farm didn't want to deal with my horses issues. My horses were, very beautiful, healthy and were loved their whole life until they got into the hands of these people. We thought my horses would be safe and taken care of. I wish I could have been in a position were I could have visited my horses to make sure they were being taken care of but I had many personal problems, and the farm was very far away. I am heartbroken to this day and it's been many years. I don't even know what became of my horses remains.Don't trust Live And Let Live Farm!!! They should change the name of their farm!!!

Review from Guidestar
I would not trust this rescue to care for a senior horse or any horse with special needs. While most animals seem to do okay there, their approach to specialty care leaves others with little hope. A mare surrendered to them in decent weight and with a clean bill of health was dead in under 4 months. They blamed heaves - which they knew the horse had before intake - yet posted a picture of the horse being ridden in a dirt arena. That alone means they were NOT taking proper steps to care for the horse. When questioned about it they became defensive and nasty. I made the decision to halt all donations to them. They took in another TB mare and then put her down when they determined she had cancer, but took almost two weeks to say so, and only did so after I posted a RIP post on their Facebook wall. If the horse had cancer then why the secrecy? There are just too many red flags with this rescue for me to feel comfortable supporting them.
Live and Let Live Farm has no doubt helped a lot of horses over the years. However, they seem to take a "one size fits all" approach to equine care as evidenced by the death of Pride only 3 1/2 months after arrival. Pride was a Saddlebred cross mare, in her early 20's, who was surrendered to LLLF because her owner suffered hardships that prevented her caring for her horse any longer. Pride was given a clean bill of health by her vet when the Coggins was done; only health condition was a mild case of heaves for which she needed daily medication and soaked hay.
Pride arrived at LLLF on March 3 and was euthanized around the middle of June. Not a lot is known about her time at this rescue except that a picture taken in late March shows Pride looking over a fence, noticeably thinner than her intake photos, blanketless in the cold even though she clearly did not have enough fat to keep herself warm. Whatever she was fed was not sufficient to maintain her weight and the conditions to which Pride was subjected caused her health to fail.
I have a lot of health problems and was looking for someplace I could just go and actually feel like I was making a difference. I started at a different shelter but feel like I was making a difference. Then I found the Live and Let Live Farm. It has changed my life so completely, not only do I feel like I am actually making a difference when I go, but the farm makes a difference in my life as well. It has made me so much happier and given me something to look forward to. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found the Live and Let Live Farm; and I don't know how I got along before I found the farm! The farm has become an important part of my life I am so glad I found it!
I have been a volunteer at Live and Let Live Farm for over a year now, and it's such a rewarding experience to help the animals that come here: mostly horses, but also goats, sheep, pigs, cows, all different kinds of birds and fowl, bunnies, kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs. If it weren't for Teresa taking these animals in, some of them would be in the most horrid condition, if not dead. We've had horses come to the farm on the verge of death, so emaciated and starved they can barely stand up, and thanks to the tireless work of the innumerable volunteers, now the horses are healthy, happy, and loved. My fondest dream would be to see as many horses as possible in forever homes with experienced horse people, so they can all have all the attention they need every day.

The rescue is a very enjoyable place to volunteer and be part of all the animals lives that you help in rehabilitation and to help feed, care for, socialize and train.
Love them all but we all end up with favorites.
