I've volunteered at NEER North for many years. My regular shift is my favorite day of the week. The equines we help are beautiful and brave, and Mary is a knowledgeable, caring, and professional leader. This is a remarkable volunteer community, and I'm thrilled to be part of it.

We volunteer at NEER North and we love this organization. Everyone involved has such a good heart towards horses and donkeys. The property where the animals are housed is beautiful and the quality of care at NEER is great. It is a place that offers hope and a second chance to equines in need. We are so thankful that NEER exists.

The dedication and hard work by Mary Martin and our team of volunteers to care for each and every animal is truly amazing. It’s a pleasure to be a part of this exceptional team.
We are thrilled to be able to help make a difference.

What an amazing, wonderful, loving family of volunteers and equines. I'm in my happy place when with them...best decision I've made in a long time. I'm inspired by Mary Martin with her unrelenting drive to do right by these majestic animals and all the folks at NEER who devote time out of their busy lives for this worthy cause. Your much needed donation will help nurture these abandoned, mistreated and forgotten equines so that they can find their forever home!

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.

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.
