Trinity Rescue is a piece of heaven in this crazy world. I started volunteering a year ago at Trinity Rescue, little did I know the impact this place would have on me and my family. I have been an equestrian most of my life & have a deep seated love for horses. After loosing my horse 15 years ago, getting married, & having children, I knew it was finally time to get myself back into the horse world. I found Trinity Equine Rescue through a friend and decided to start volunteering. A short time after I started my husband and children wanted to join me in volunteering, it's now a family affair! We have met amazing people that are now are FARMily, I have been able to teach my children about hard work, how to fix things when broken, and patience. They have learned what it takes to care for these beautiful creatures and how to help them when they are sick/injured. Things they don't teach in a classroom.Trinity Rescue is not just an amazing place for people, the true magic is in the rescued horses. The horses come to Trinity from all different situations. Some abuse cases, some hoarders, some abandoned, some from owners not being able to care for them, some from slaughter pens...it doesn't matter where they are from, once at Trinity they are loved wholeheartedly, nourished, and cared for. I've seen skin and bones rehabilitated into a beautiful majestic horse that becomes someone's heart and soul. I've seen dull clouded eyes shine with life and love again. What Trinity Equine Rescue does for these horses is truly beyond words. They give life back to the broken, both horses & humans.

I honestly cannot remember if Trinity Rescue found me, or I found them. I was looking for a place to volunteer with my daughter a few years ago where we would be among animals in need of help. This was initially to help my daughter with anxiety. In time, I found myself showing up, without my daughter. I realized that these wonderful creatures were helping me as well. Trinity Rescue has such an amazing, selfless heart! From the owners Joey & Cynthia, to all of the volunteers that dedicate their free time to help things run. When you see a horse arrive from a horrible situation you ask yourself a few questions: How could someone do this? Why did they do this? Will they ever feel safe again? Well I can answer the 3rd question: ABSOLUTELY! From the time a horse arrives, they are tended to with every bit of care that is required. Trinity knows just how to ease them back to feeling safe again. It's truly an amazing sight, and Trinity Rescue is an amazing facility!

Trinity is ALL about the horses. Every dime is spent to make the life of each horse, mini and even the very necessary barn cats healthy, safe and happy.
Horses, as you may know, have incredible recall of incidents in their lives. To rescue one of these injured, abused and traumatized animals is a HUGE commitment to re-write those horrible experiences and bring them back to trust and happiness. Trinity as a scrapbook full of such stories.
Trinity staff and volunteers shine in the eyes of these animals. Come experience the miracle first hand any time you are in Georgia.

I’ve been a volunteer with Trinity Rescue for 2 years and have made lifelong friends, as well as meaningful memories loving on the sweet ponies!

I have watched this rescue from the idea coming into reality to their current growth to a second facility. The endless compassions and energy they put into every horse that crosses the doorway ofTrinity Rescue is awe inspiring. They do everything within their power to give them happy healthy lives free of pain people caused them, from their physical ailments, or mental pain. I respect the choices Trinity makes for all the horses in their care.

Trinity rescue fights hard for every horse they come in contact with. Trinity takes as many horses as they can to give them the opertunity at a better life. They taken in horses with uncertain futures just to make sure they know love and compassion within their life time. No matter the obstacle the team at Trinity handles it with as much grace as possible! They give horses that may have other wise never known a loving home a chance to be loved by a family all their own. With out this selfless detacation from the Trinity team many horses would be still living a life of hurt and fear.

Trinity Rescue is one of the most carrying a compassionate rescue groups I have ever come across. I am in the veterinary field and have also done rescue myself and they go above and beyond. Cynthia and Joey are always willing to answer any questions or give us recommendations, just absolutely wonderful people. I wouldn't recommend anyone else after dealing with this amazing rescue.

I’ve worked with many non-profit organizations over the years and Trinity Rescue is among the most professional groups I’ve seen. The leadership actively participates, all new volunteers are required to attend an orientation with at least one of the owners. This sets a consistently high standard of commitment to Caring for the horses and goats among all team members.

The standards are upheld every shift by a highly competent and good-natured team leader. The place is well-run and organized. I ❤️ trinity horse rescue!!!

I give this nonprofit 5 stars because they are making a huge impact by working with abandoned and abused horses and finding them loving homes. They are saving these horse’s lives and providing them everything they need and more. They work with them to show them that not all humans are bad, and teach them to trust again. They are also patient with all the horses and they always make sure the horse is comfortable and safe. I volunteer with them and they have taught me so much about how horses respond to certain things, how to calm them down, and most of all, how to make them feel truly loved!

I wanted to be involved with helping horses. A friend of mine highly recommended Trinity Horse Rescue. She read all about the rescue and supports it. She is a horse lover as well, has had horses, and boards them. My 12 yr old grandson and I volunteer there every Tuesday evening. The horses are well taken care of. If they need medical attention, they get it right away. The needs of each horse are met. The facility is top notch. We have been volunteering there since January of this year. We both love it and love the horses! I appreciate, so much, the Heaton’s and the work they do to give horses the best care possible.

I have been helping to train the rescue horses at Trinity Rescue for several years. It is one of the best rescue that I have helped. They make sure that every horse that comes to them is cared for at top notch level. From rehabilitation to trained for a forever home, every horse is special.

Cynthia and Joey truly have hearts of gold. The love and care they give to horses in need are beyond measure. My heart was broken following the loss of my gelding companion of 27 years, when someone told me about a sweet gelding recently arrived at Trinity Rescue. His owner had passed after a long battle with cancer, but prior to his passing, he asked Trinity to find a good home for his beloved buddy. When I saw him, I knew we were meant to be together. Cynthia was incredibly welcoming, kind and understanding. She made the process smooth and communicated with me in a timely and detailed manner. Jabez joined our family and is very much loved. In visiting Trinity Rescue and staying in touch, it is clear just how very dedicated Cynthia and Joey are to their mission. They are a gift to the countless horses and donkeys they rescue and to those of us who are fortunate enough to be honored to be given the opportunity to share our lives with them.

Trinity Rescue not only rescues horses, but people. They certainly rescued me. I had lost my Arabian heart horse who had been with me for 27 years. Needless to say, my heart was broken. The loss of a beloved pet is very difficult and healing takes time, so I wasn't looking for another anytime soon. But one day a photo jumped out at me on Facebook and tugged at my heart. It was a sweet Arabian, Jabez, who had just recently come to Trinity following the loss of his dear person. Once I saw that photo, there was no question about contacting Trinity to meet him. Cynthia was nothing short of amazing. She was so kind and helpful as we navigated the adoption process. After meeting and riding Jabez, I knew that we were meant to be together and both Cynthia and Joey made it happen. I was so touched as they showed me around their beautiful facility and introduced me to the other special souls they are caring for with kindness, love, attention and the best of care. Everyone who volunteers there truly loves what they do. Trinity Rescue is a magical place. Cynthia and Joey are as dedicated as they come. We are so very fortunate that they provide an amazing service. Jabez and I are truly grateful.

It's really hard to know where to start with describing my experience with Trinity Rescue and Sanctuary. I have been involved with Tirnity Rescue for 7 years now since they started. Not only have I learned a LOT about horses and horse care, but about myself and others who are there to help the rescue also. The owners and leads are always willing to teach horsemanship, care, and everything you want to know and could know about horses. They've built a great community in dedicated volunteers that not only shows in their verbal and celebratory appreciation for them all, but you can see and feel that the volunteers care just as much too. I've seen amazing transformations from horses who were so malnourished and couldn't stand (and helping to get them back up) to beautiful creatures that some are beyond recognizable because of their regained health. Not only does Trinity change these horses lives physically for the better but works to improve their minds by building trust and discipline through love, kisses, ground work and other knowledgeable and respectful training! Such an amazing nonprofit which is why I tell everyone about it and always support them.

Trinity Rescue, where compassion, integrity, and determination are just a few of the attributes seen at this rescue. Compassion for each animal, no matter the circumstance is so clearly evident. Integrity in how they operate, at all times, is seen and heard in interactions. Determination to help heal the bodies, minds, and hearts before finding a forever home to continue the same love and care.
I have my two heart horses as life partners because of this rescue and I highly recommend anyone looking for the same to visit Trinity Rescue!

I have been an active volunteer at Trinity Rescue & Equine Sanctuary for over 3 years now, and I am happy that I did not miss this great opportunity to help in any way that I can to rescued horses. Cynthia and Joey Heaton are the founders/owners and they say this is a dream come true for them. The truth of the matter is that not only have they helped our horses, but they have also helped people to get to know all about horses, which leads to loving them and everyone else who frequents the rescue. It is unimaginable the amount of friendships (human and equine alike) that have developed here. Everyone is courteous and loving. I can sense that the horses are all happy here until the absolute right person(s) come along to adopt them. Then, or course, it is a bittersweet situation and I can guarantee you that any adopted horse will never be forgotten. Trinity Rescue is truly a wonderful organization and I am thrilled to be a part of it; learning more and more every day.

Trinity Rescue was presented to me on 6/14/15 (over 2 years ago) and I continue to be honored to be a part of this organization. The founders have taught me so many things about horses that need to be rescued. I have seen enough, but probably not all, abuse, neglect and abandoned cases that have come into Trinity Rescue. With a lot of love and medical evaluation and treatment, these horses are restored to their "should be" status. Trinity continues to rehab these horses and trains them to be rideable under saddle before placing them up for adoption. Potential people that want to adopt need to prove themselves worthy of adopting any of these horses. I admire these qualities and I will work tooth and nail with this Rescue to help them achieve their goals. I am "hooked" as they say and once a valuable adoption takes place, it is bittersweet. You feel happy for both the new adopter and the Trinity Rescue horse, but you feel like their is somebody missing in your life when the horse departs. I would recommend Trinity Rescue to any potential volunteer or potential adopter. The people who direct Trinity Rescue work hard to make sure there is an absolute true fit for these horses, and the part that is also admirable is that if the parties (horse and adopter) do not work our, Trinity Rescue will take the horse back in a heartbeat.

Trinity rescue is one of true love and dedication not only to the horses it saves but also to anyone who walks through their door! After losing my beloved, well known Atlanta news brother inlaw, Capt. Herb Emory my daughter and I decided to do a charity fund. After much research we felt Trinity rescue was on par with Capt Herbs values and love of animals! Never meeting Cynthia before we showed up and were given the full tour, met all the rescues and told of their past awful stories! Cynthia was full of excitement and sorrow for she too was a fan of Capt Herbs! During our visit she showed us a pregnant mare that they had rescued and was ready to deliver at any time. We left that day with our hearts full and Cynthia with a check and supplies... life is good! A few months later I see a facebook post that the mare had delivered a healthy colt and Trinity had named him Captain!! Yes the tears flowed and of course when the time came he was destined to be mine!! Funny how people can come into your lfe and change it forever!!

Trinity Rescue has been such a blessing to our family. When my family was ready to welcome a pony to our family for my daughter, the Trinity Family was so patient with us in searching for the right fit! Cynthia did not give up on us and I was so surprised to find a message from her while we were on a family cruise. She sent pictures of Clara and said she thinks she may have the pony for us! Well she was so right! Emma visited Clara a few times and the staff was so generous of their time in helping us tack, letting Emma ride, telling us all about Clara’s story, and giving us as much time as we needed to decide if she was the right fit! We have had Clara at our farm for just over a year and we are so in love with her! Thank you to all the Trinity staff!

We are so lucky to have Trinity Rescue in our lives. Our family is new to the world of equines and could not have managed without their help. Trinity Rescue tirelessly assisted our family with horse education while we searched to find the perfect companion for our pony. All horses in Trinity’s care receive the very best care AND so much love from all the volunteers. We are beyond thankful for Trinity Rescue and all they continue to do for horses and the entire equine community.

Trinity Rescue is a one of a kind place. They are a prime example of giving back to the community by means of high school students doing projects and many other functions. Their expertise in horse care shines by viewing the before and after pictures. I have seen horses come in near deaths door, only to be rehabilitated into beautiful creatures. In addition to the love and care that Trinity offers the horses, it is a wonderful place to volunteer...great people are the owners and the volunteers truly love what they do.

I started working with Trinity Rescue in February of 2017 after a sudden tragic death of my only child. I went to coumseling, but wasn't getting what I thought I needed during what is the most difficult time of my life. I prayed to God daily, asking for peace, love and understanding....I also prayed for God to help me find a purpose that would help in the healing process. Well, God does work in mysterious ways....I saw a friend had posted a picture working at Trinity as a volunteer....I knew immediately that's what I needed to do.
I cannot begin to tell you the rewards I have received from the rescue. The owners are absolutely wonderful, loving caring people...not just for the care of the horses, but for each of the volunteers....there are a lot of volunteers and they know each by name and have a personal relationship with each of us.
They are eager to share their knowledge for caring for these horses, ensuring that they receive the individual special needs required.
In the short time I have been there, I have seen several abandoned, abused, starved horses rehabilitated to the most amazing, beautiful animals.
Trinity goes far beyond the call of duty when they are notified of horses in need. In addition, to the full time job of the rescue, they both have "regular" full time jobs.

Trinity is a blessing to the horses and to all of the volunteers. My soul was (is) broken and so are the new rescues. Together we are healing.

I have been volunteering at Trinity for over 2 years. The horses that come through the rescue are treated to some of the best care available for horses. They have stalls cleaned daily, thoughtful turn out, careful leadership, well organized regular volunteer scheduling and frequent projects to get everyone involved. Nothing is spared to make sure these horses have the best food and vet care while they are with us. Only the best homes are good enough for our rescues so the horses will never have to experience anything else like what they have already been through. I have never seen such a wonderful rescue!

I have been volunteering here for over a year. I have seen so many horses come in fearful and starved for nutrition and love. They get fed, loved and trained. They become confident, loving and happy. All of the volunteers that I have met have a high level of commitment to the animals and to the organization. It is a great place to give time, effort and love.

I started volunteering at Trinity in September 2017. My sister and I rode at what used to be a lesson barn and is now Trinity Rescue. We decided we'd go check it out and I couldn't be happier that we did. I've met so many awesome people through Trinity! It's amazing the love and passion Cynthia and Joey have for these beautiful animals and the time they spend ensuring their happiness and safety. I've come to love all the ponies and even formed many friendships with volunteers! Trinity is Awesome!!
