Rating: 5

NEER North's president Mary Martin leads a dedicated group of volunteers who regularly go the extra mile to take care of the horses, donkeys, and ponies who arrive at our barn abused, starving, injured, neglected, abandoned, or at-risk of slaughter--all desperately needing a new chance for a happy life. My weekly shift as a volunteer brings me in touch with colleagues who share a love for animals and with beautiful equines who face each day with courage, patience, and grace, regardless of the pain and struggles they may have previously endured. Support for NEER North helps pay for the food, shelter, medicines, and veterinary care that help us carry out our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming equines in desperate need.

Just recently started volunteering here and could not be happier to help such a great organization! Everyone is very focused on both the physical AND mental aspects of rehabilitation so that these animals can leave healthier and happier than when they came.

New England equine rescue north does an amazing amount of work not only with their rescue horses but within the community as well to help people maintain their farms and their horses at home through a feed fund on very limited resources. All of the horses that enter the rescue are extremely well cared for and loved and the volunteers are some of the most dedicated that I have seen

Run by many thoughtful and truly caring individuals. Effort is an abundant quality throughout the volunteers and the animals quality of life is always put first. New, happy homes are constantly being found for the animals and Mary only picks the best ones! She would never give away an animal to an untrustworthy home. The animals happiness and health is always the top priority at NEER.

Absolutely the best decision I have ever made was showing up at NEER and filling out a volunteer application! Love the people, the animals, and the mission! Mary is one of the most hard working and amazing women I have ever had the privilege of working with! Her love for these animals and her passion to rescue and rehome them is remarkable! She is the one who makes this all possible! Thank you, Mary!

I volunteered for NEER for several months last year. Their dedication to the animals is obvious. I know they've since changed locations, and so I can't vouch for the new location, but at the old location the horses had several different pastures they were circulated through, and each was very different from the others. I think this was great. I now volunteer for a different horse rescue on the other side of the country, and the horses all have relatively boring pastures (it is grassland here after all), but I can't help but think the environment at NEER is more pleasant for the horses! I definitely recommend NEER, your donations will go very far here.

NEER North is the best Non-Profit Organization I know. As an animal lover it truly warms my heart to see the rescue work the NEER North crew (all volunteers, I believe) does for horses & a variety of other animals. They are a gift to animals & the community as well. Their fundraisers are fun for the family & help to raise awareness about animals in need. I seriously love those guys! :)

I learned about NEER north from my aunt who is a volunteer. She led me to a horse that they had there that had been to the brink of death and back. She was a huge mare with a lot of potential but even bigger baggage. Although I wasn't looking at the time for a new horse I truly believe Asha found me. As a professional in this sport( I am a trainer who owns a large equestrian facility). I understand the amount of love, hard work, blood, sweat, tears, and money that goes into a foundation such as NEER. I couldn't recommend a better facility. I currently house three of NEErs graduates, one of which I am training for NEER and two of my own. These people are the one in a millions. They are angels and we need more of them in this world. I couldn't picture my life without my little ( or not so little at 17+ hands) Asha girl.

Mary and her crew are doing a fabulous job protecting horses from winding up in bad situations. They give them back their health and happiness and try to find them a perfectly matched home. Mary is as honest as they come and works her heart out to care for the animals. I wish there were more people like her in this world.

No matter the age or condition, Mary Martin and the NEER North crew work tirelessly to make sure every animal gets great care and love. Those that come in skinny and matted are soon fat and sleek. Mary has a way with the ones who don't haven't had a lot of handling that is truly amazing. I know a lot of rescues, and this one is absolutely the best. They deserve all the support you can muster.

Mary's work with the horses at NEER North is extraordinary. The transformations of rescue horses are amazing, but she also goes above and beyond to make sure that local horses in need are helped before they even wind up in a rescue situation. Boo is a wonderful ambassador for the farm and has become a local celebrity :) And of course, Tom Cat brightens everyone's day with his feline musings on the farm's daily operations. Keep up the great work!

I adopted a horse from NEER North about a year ago. They were very clear and honest about how to adopt, which I appreciated. They were also thorough with the reference checks and reviewing my application. I felt I was treated with a lot of respect of what could offer a horse in need but they were also protective of the animal in their care and it's future home. It was clear the staff at NEER North absolutely love the equines they care for. When I picked up my horse, all my questions were answered, and they showed a lot of passion for the hard work they do on behalf of the horses they are trying to help. Truly a great experience due to the caring nature of the organization.
