I have had the priviledge of helping Special Horses share their fund raising posts for a couple of years now. This is one of the best non-profit groups dedicated to the welfare of rescue horses and horse owners often in difficult or impossible situations. Screening rescues to weed out the good ones from the nefarious rescues, running fund raiser after fund raiser to help these rescues do the very necessary work they do to rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and rehome horses is desperate need, running a haybank to connect needy owners with hay farmers who have hay to spare, Wendy Neckamyer does the impossible again and again. This has truly been an honor to watch and participate in, in the very small way I can even begin to help. It has been an honor and priviledge to heklp you, Wendy.

I came across this rescue because of my love of my own horses. Special Horses works tirelessly to organize support and fundraising auctions for horses in need. Her fundraisers are awesome and their dedication is inspiring. I have followed and supported this non-profit for years and am proud to see all that can be accomplished with their love & support.

I’ve been a Special Horses supporter for 10 years or so now. I’m so amazed and awed at the tireless work Special Horses does for the rescues they support. I love shopping the auctions for fun gifts and goodies and one day I’ll be high bidder on the fudge! Special Horses has built such a great community of rescued and donor partners that it’s truly one of my favorite organizations.

Special Horses has been extremely helpful to all equines - as they tirelessly conduct auctions to help out barns (and/or for a horse), nationwide. In addition, Special Horses are probably know by most horse lovers (nationwide) as they constantly do all they can to help, and/or keep the horse owners updated with relevant current events.

Just a few months ago I was elected to be on the Board of Directors of a horse rescue. Part of my new position is to write grants. I had absolutely NO idea of where to even start and I found Special Horses - thank GOD! Wendi has been SO helpful, I can't put into words. This organization is a priceless asset to other nonprofits.

This is a horse rescue I support with donations of racing memorabilia, promoting on social media and often bidding. Special horses helps many rescues, smaller ones who need the help the most. It is promoted by a wonderful rescue horse (via his owner) on Facebook. The lady who runs this is "Special" too. She is an unsung hero in the world of Thoroughbred rescue. I will continue to support Special Horses in anyway I am able to do.

I review charities very carefully, and only donate to the ones that return a high dollar amount to the "actual" cause. Specialhorses.org gives not just all of the money, but it takes an enormous amount of time and volunteer hours to maintain the support they provide. They vet the recipients of the help they provide, so you can be sure the horses are getting the most help. I am so thankful I found this organization!

I personally know the founder and director of this organization. With very limited outside help it does a job helping groups who take in and care for horses that nobody wants and saves them from an inhumane death. All this while maintaining the highest ethical standards. I cannot say enough about this great nonprofit.

I support several organizations dedicated to animal welfare. What makes this nonprofit stand out is that it is managed by one person, founder Wendi Neckameyer and her beautiful horse Ted. I have known Wendi for 14 years and I have never met anyone who works as hard as she does to make Special Horses successful. Not only does Wendi work tirelessly with no staff and limited resources, she also manages Special Horses with integrity and holds herself to the highest ethical standards. Unfortunately, not all nonprofits can say the same. In addition, the organizations that receive funding from Special Horses have all been thoroughly vetted by Wendi to ensure that they too operate with high ethical standards that are true to their missions. When I contribute to Special Horses I know that my money goes directly to help horses in need and not to support inflated salaries or extravagant lifestyles. Special Horses may not be the biggest nonprofit but it’s contribution to animal welfare is huge.

This is a fabulous organization. So many non-profits out there all looking for donations. I wish I could help them all, but I can't. Special Horses advocates for certain groups. This tells me the group has been vetted and I don't need to worry if my donation is being used for something other than the horses' welfare.

The original advocate Ted Wells (an off the track Thoroughbred) certainly had a place in all of our hearts. Just go to his page, (he passed away a short while ago) you'll see the heartbreak that spread across Facebook. Special Horses has a new Jr. Advocate - Niles. I'm sure he'll do a great job carrying on Ted's work.

I have been donating to their auctions for years and winning some of them! I LOVE it when Wendi offers her fudge!! It is FANTASTIC.
All these horses are expensive to maintain but these people that run them do without, so the horses have what they need.
There are 5 rescues/sanctuaries Special Horses Inc supports. It's no joke the time and effort this takes for Wendi to organize all these fundraising auctions.
If you decide to help... you don't have to worry where your money goes... DIRECTLY to the rescue to help the horses.

Talk about working tirelessly.. this is where to learn how to do it! I have been donating for years now . Wendi Neckamyer is constantly organizing online auctions which is no small task. The 5 rescues put their horses first and their needs second to make their lives as cushy as possible. There are a bunch of spoiled horses in these rescues that will ALWAYS be spoiled!

The good that Special Horses does goes beyond words. Horses that would otherwise be forgotten and allowed to slip through the cracks are given a second chance at a life full of purpose and love. Horses that have been starved and neglected are brought back to health and finally know a kind voice, a gentle touch, and a full belly. The public outreach, through the use of Equine Advocates, is nothing short of amazing. They speak for those who can't speak for themselves, and educate the public on the need to care for these amazing animals after their career at the track is done or when they have been failed by those they relied on and served. I have been a proud donor to this group year after year, having two of my own ex-racehorses, and can't think of an organization more worthy of supporting.

Special Horses is unique in that it supports horse rescues across the United States. Through on-line auctions, funds are raised that support rescues in time of critical need.

Special Horses is a rare bird (pony). It doesn't try to 'ransome' animals at feedlots, nor has 'crisis mode' fundraisers. Instead, SH helps fund LEGITIMATE, established rescues with a proven track record with emergency assistance, education and ongoing needs all around the country. SH is and always has been TOTALLY transparent with funds and has a PLATINUM rating with Guidestar.

The volunteers of the Special Horses organization work diligently to raise money and awareness for various horse rescues across the nation. They try to advocate on saving horses from slaughter auctions, and try to create awareness about the many rescue organizations that are out there, giving people a lot of options for adoption. They will raise money for medical needs, feed, farrier, or general operations and donate all of the funds they raise unselfishly. They are the main organization I donate to because I trust their mission and their values.

I have both donated and bought items from the online auctions run by Special Horses. Super easy to do and very affordable items in their auctions. Something for everyone. You know the money raised is going to reputable horse rescues and will be 100% for the care of horses. Wendi and her trusty steed (the handsome OTTB Ted) work tirelessly throughout the year on these online auction fundraisers. I am happy to help. Monetary donations are welcomed any time of year by this nonprofit and a donation receipt is quickly sent
Added bonus, I've actually made new friends via Special Horses, cant beat that, help horses and improve your social life at the same time!

This is not the first time I have written a recommendation for Special Horses, and it won't be the last. I consider it an "umbrella" charity as they exist to assist several rescues financially. I donate via my rescued OTTB mare's name, Princess Madeline. I help so that other horses can have a chance to be as safe and loved as she is. The donated items and funds are not for the benefit of Special Horses. This charitable organization does God's work and they only ask for help so that they can provide needed funds for horses at risk.

I have supported Special Horses (as a donor) for several years now. Their umbrella charity raises funds for a group of charities that benefit equines in need. I think so highly of Special Horses that I look for items that would be attractive to bidders both on eBay (where Special Horses is often a beneficiary) and also for the online auctions that are held throughout the year by Special Horses. I have also donated money towards the website and for the Secret Santa fund for horses and other worthy equine causes that Special Horses supports. I own an OTTB like Ted Wells, and my horse is also a rescue who was at risk to go to slaughter when she did not sell at auction. To honor her and to remember all the thoroughbreds who have worked so hard, I often make my donations using her name (Princess Madeline). Her photo is attached. All horses should be treated the way my former racehorse is treated - with utmost care, respect, and love... safe forever. Thank you Ted Wells and Special Horses for looking out for our "brethren."

I have a dear friend that runs a 501(c)(3) horse rescue in Pennsylvania, and Special Horses nonprofit has tirelessly raised funds to help her save horses. They hold online fundraisers and auctions on social media, and the money they've raised helps pay for the rescued horse's care, veterinary expenses, dental, and farrier. This is an excellent nonprofit!

I have worked with Special Horses fundraising for a large horse seizure in Virginia. We fund raised for hay for the rescues that took in the starved, neglected horses.
With the help of the donors and some that offered products whose purchase went to the funding needed;we were able to donate money for much needed hay for the care of the horses from this large seizure. Special Horses is great to work with; and committed to their cause. Easy to deal with and open and up front. I would recommend this organization without hesitation

Special Horses is dedicated to raising funds to help horse rescues help horses in need. Horses who have been starved, abused, abandoned.
They also do a tremendous job of helping to raise awareness about the issues of horse abuse and slaughter.
A wonderful organization that does so much good!

Special Horses has helped a lot of non-profit horse rescue groups in many ways. SH does fundraising to help these groups by hosting on-line auctions and other "virtual" events on their website. Plus SH has a good presence on social media to promote the cause of horse rescue, adoption and horse welfare and brings much needed attention to the organizations they help.

Special Horses does great work raising money for horse charities. The spokeshorse, Ted Peeplover (you can find him on facebook) along with his human are busy collecting a variety of donated items to put in their online auctions, they always come up with interesting things you didn't know you needed until you see them! They have some particularly nice art work at times. I have bought several pieces of jewelry from them myself which arrived promptly and were just as they were pictured. I was so impressed with their efforts to help horses in need I donated an item to one their auctions myself and will do so again. Keep up the good work Special Horses, goodness knows there are 1000's of horses in need of rescue and help to find a new home in this country.
