Neighsavers is a fantastic rescue. Thank God for them. How many horses would have fallen off the map and into desperate situations haD it not been for the networking skills and contacts. God bless the many hands that care for the horses, who nurse them back to health. God bless the donors that keep the operation going.

I've been following Neigh Savers for several years. As an owner of an OTTB and knowing many people in the racing industry; I am so happy to see the networking opportunities that have come available because of Neigh Savers and their tireless work with race tracks, owners and trainers in California to re-home retired TB's. So many horses have benefited from their programs. They are highly involved in the promotion of the TB and offer so many wonderful opportunities for the public and potential adopters to be involved in their world. Neigh Savers is a blessing for the horses and their owners and I encourage everyone that is interested to check out Neigh Savers and support their great work.

Neigh Savers Foundation has been a labor of love, determination and a lot of patience. Karin Wagner has that special spunky personality that keeps the determination flowing in most creative ways.
It takes a very strong, special person to accomplish this dream to save these beautiful animals and give them a second chance in life.

We have recently begun working with Neigh Savers and I am consistently impressed with their professionalism, dedication and positive attitude in the world of animal rescue. This can be a heart-wrenching arena to involve yourself in but Karin and her team of volunteers focus on the animals and the small steps that can be taken on their behalf that result in life-changing results for both the animals and those that share in their second chance.

I am an animal lover. Neigh Savers is a wonderful organization dedicated to helpless, needy ex-racehorses. It is a shame what can become of a beautiful thoroughbred once their "usefulness" is used up. Neigh Savers tries to help rehab them and find each one of them a forever home. It is a daunting task, one they have taken on seriously and with great responsibility. I am in awe of Neigh Savers and wish I could do more to help a much needed organization. Neigh Savers needs more recognition and national exposure to obtain more funding and assistance.

Neigh Savers founder, Karin, has dedicated her soul to the love of ex-racehorses. She wants only the best for them, and will give them any and every possible chance to have a happy and healthy full life. Even the horses still waiting to be adopted, get pampered with stall shavings up to their knees, professional groomers that get them out daily and make them sparkle from nose to toes before and after daily turn-outs. I adopted a mare (Blame Rome) from Neigh Savers after researching several other Thoroughbred rescue organizations. Karin and her volunteers went way above and beyond my expectations, starting from finding the perfect horse for my wants and needs, to helping me with farrier and vet bills when she was badly injured from getting kicked by one of my other horses even months after I purchased her. I highly recommend Neigh Savers, and I just wish I could adopt more horses.

I think that this organization is awesome! They take in the broken, the needy, the helpless and they always seem to restore every single soul. They are all remarkable people who love for the life of a horse is more important than if they even eat themselves. This is one of the most worthy foundations that I have come across in years and I just want to vote to help them because the work they do is all about "helping" to heal the injured, the neglected, the lost of the soul and they should be commended for the actions that they do every single day. Thank you.

This organization steps in to take care of horses that have little to no hope left and they rehabilitate and train these animals for a long happy life with a forever home. I have worked with this group both as a client (mare and foal adopted ) and as a donor and I wish I could do more. They are very deserving of any support.

Neigh Savers is a fantastic organization focused on rescuing and rehoming OTTB's. They work with local organizations and barns to ensure the horses are being humanely treated and trained and the adoptive families are throughly screened to ensure these awesome animals have great long time homes.

Neigh Savers does a fantastic job of promoting the positive aspects of the racing industry as well as the positive aspects of the value of horse ownership.

Adopting an animal is often as challenging as it is rewarding, especially when it comes to horses. It is thanks to diligent, discerning rescues, like Neigh Savers, that "off the track thoroughbreds" (OTTB) find their new forever homes, and are saved from the confusion and heart-ache of being bounced around into the wrong hands. Neigh Savers allows horses fresh from the track the time and space needed to decompress before retraining them. The volunteers and trainers get to know each horse individually through and through, and keep the public updated online with their milestones, quirks and ambitions, and work closely with potential adopters to ensure a great match. As a top notch rescue, Neigh Savers is a gift to horses and horse people alike.

I have been watching this organization for awhile on Facebook and their website. I am completely impressed with their set up and how dedicated they are to rehoming these amazing horses. I worked on racetracks when I was younger and it always broke my heart to see these wonderful horses simply 'thrown away' when they couldn't race anymore. By giving them a second chance through proper training and evaluation and careful placement they truly are saving their lives. I am currently working with them on possibly adopting one of their horses and can't wait to continue working with them. They are angels.

Neigh Savers is an outstanding group of individuals who dedicate so much of their time to helping horses recover from minor and severe physical injury to psychological issues cause by the stresses of racing, training techniques, and the lack of horse-to-horse bonding. The volunteers become so connected to each individual horse, that even after meticulous details are smoothed out, watching that horse leave in the trailer for their forever home with their new owner(s), never gets easier- but the joy it brings them, keeps them pushing forward to help the next horse in need.

I have seen first hand the amazing work and tireless dedication the workers, volunteers and foster homes of Neigh Savers do on an ongoing and daily basis as I boarded my own horse at a barn in Somis where two of these ladies were compassionately fostering and caring for resued horses, rehabilitating and finding them new loving homes!! They are truly dedicated to a compassionate cause for rescuing neglected, abused, and abandoned horses!!!❤❤❤
