Wonderful people, loving, caring and knowledgeable. They helped my new horse, Buddy, find me. He couldn't perform heavy duty riding anymore but is perfect for me and has a partial retirement! Here is this 25-30 yr old horse running around announcing the birth of our new foal. He must have experienced everything but seeing a baby! Every horse has their own personality!

Equine Wellbeing Rescue is truly the BEST rescue you will ever find. The President and Founder, Christine Griffin, is the most dedicated person I've ever met. She treats every animal with such love and compassion. I said every animal....horse, donkey, mule, goat, dog, cat, etc. She is truly a gem. She actually brought me a "loaner" horse to keep my horse company after his buddy passed away. Then I had the good fortune to adopt one of her horses permanently. I can not say enough good about this organization. If there is just one rescue you can support, make it this one!

What inspires people to give to charitable organizations? For me, it started in childhood, with volunteering to help with church and community outreach programs. As an adult, I pledged to various charities through the United Way via payroll deductions for many years. Although I know these things made a small difference in helping the end user, I didn't see tangible results until I discovered my current charity, Equine WellBeing Rescue, Inc. (www.EquineWellBeing.org and on Facebook- Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc.).
Equine WellBeing is a 501c3 public charity (Fed ID# 45-2835562) that provides rehabilitation, sanctuary and hospice services for horses, mules and donkeys in need. This particular rescue was my choice because it is within a couple of miles of my home in northeastern Arizona, in the White Mountains. The charity has almost no administrative costs that would detract from funds doing the most for those in need. Having gone 'horse crazy' in second grade (according to my parents) this association follows a normal progression from 'professional volunteer' to donor/volunteer at an equine rescue.
I have donated funds, goods and volunteered at the rescue for the past 2 years. This includes going to remote locations to transport equine in need with the director, assisting with veterinary procedures (I am a registered nurse with experience in emergency and critical care), feeding and socializing equine at the ranch, and day to day work on the ranch.
My husband and I have adopted two horses and a donkey, and later deciding to foster two yearling horses, again to allow Equine WellBeing room and funds to take in additional equine.
Some of the residents of Equine WellBeing Rescue were neglected and/or tortured prior to coming to the ranch. Malnourishment and chronic wounds are common findings on arrival. Transferring my nursing knowledge and experience towards equine was an easy choice. The director, Christine Griffin, is an Equine Veterinary Technician and Certified Equine Dentist who works with local veterinarians to care for the herds at the rescue. I gladly assist with whatever medical needs the equine have.
Sadly, many people cannot or choose not to care for their equine when they are too old to compete, or ride like they could when they were younger. Many older equine have chronic health and nutrition problems, along with dental problems that do not allow them to chew properly. Although some problems can be overcome with special diets, and some dental problems can be corrected, many require expensive, soaked diets with supplements and pain/anti-inflammatory medications to keep them going. Equine WellBeing is a kind and gentle final home for many unwanted elder horses and donkeys, where they receive love and medications until their end. The decision on when an equine has suffered long enough is a heart wrenching one for Christine, her group of volunteers, and her Board of Directors to face, but they make the right decision for each individual every time.
I am proud to be a donor, a volunteer, adopter/foster parent for Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. Please make a donation, however small or large, to help them continue their good work.

Equine Wellbeing Rescue not only takes in and rehabilitates horses and donkeys in need, they provide compassionate hospice care, and through a great network in several states, help people rehome equine they can no longer care for. My husband and I volunteer at the ranch whenever we have time or they have needs, and have adopted 2 horses and a donkey. We can't say enough good about these fine people.

Christine Griffin has the most genuine heart when it comes to horses, mules and donkey's needing human intervention. Even when she knows the odds are not good for a horse, mule or donkey she stays by their side to the end. Many of her rescue efforts has paid off for the equines in getting them help and new homes! Christine's rescue organization is ran straight up in all aspects! Christine also takes the time to help us humans too! God Bless Christine, her rescue organization, horse's, mules and donkeys.

Christine Griffin has a persistent passion for the horses that have been left for dead. She has committed her life to this and has done an amazing job loving and rehabilitating the debilitated and abused. I have witnessed many equine rescues that mean well but cannot deliver. Running a rescue becomes your life 24/7 and can be a heart wrenching journey of loss. Christine has managed to respect these animals and not try to gain unjustly. The animals who have suffered for too long finally find comfort and peace in their end days at Equine Wellbeing. To me that is a bitter sweet sort of beautiful. Thank you Christine.

I have donated my services to a few equine rescues and left them thinking that the horses needed to be rescued from the rescue. Equine Wellbeing takes the animals health seriously and is one of the few rescues that I have known who has professional equine experience, full disclosure of allocated donations, and not animal hoarding. I have the utmost confidence in this nonprofit.

I met Christine by chance when I adopted a pony from Texas. The owner of this rescue place was supposed to deliver my pony, but ended up sick half way through the trip. Christine from the Equine Well Being Rescue ended up picking up my pony along with a donkey from New Mexico and brought him to us. When we saw the donkey that traveled with our pony we fell in love with her too. So we ended up with a pony (Stubby) and the donkey (Ophelia). Little did we know that 4 months later Ophelia would give birth to Chloe. These donkeys have brought a lot of joy to our lives. So much so we ended up adopting another donkey from Christine. His name is Rusty. I can't say enough about the Equine Well Being Rescue. Christine and her husband are so dedicated to these animals. When ever I have any questions or need help, Christine is always there for me. These horses and donkeys are very lucky when they end up at the Equine Well Being Ranch. They for sure will be taken care of and loved and eventually go to a good home. We are very blessed to have such a place out here.

Equine Wellbeing is by far the most beautiful property I have seen for rescued animals. The animals are healthy, happy and by their disposition well taken care of.

We had the privilege to adopt our loving donkey Bambi from Equine Wellbeing. The process was a little frightening because I knew nothing about donkeys but, Christine walked me through the process and educated me the whole way. She still takes my calls and emails regarding any questions or concerns I may have regarding Bambi and her well being. I am so glad I found a reputable rescue who truly cares about the animals and the process.

So much of my life is spent in my own space trying to get everything done in my day. Being a part of EqWBR gives me time to step outside of myself and help with the mission.

It’s a special thing, knowing that creatures found in desperate circumstances are being helped and saved from misery. This opportunity to work with Christine and the circle of people she surrounds herself with; the wonderful veterinarians, volunteers and new owners, this is a chance to make a difference.

Equine WellBeing Rescue truly cares for each animal, attends to their specific needs and works to create a safe and happy life for them. So many lives are enriched in the rescue and adoption process. We thank each of our caring donors, our hardworking volunteers and our loving adoptive owners and look forward to continuing our mission for many years.

The number of horses and donkeys that have benefited from Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. is outstanding. In addition to saving equine they educate the community on equine care and have started an Equine Emergency Feed Fund to help those that need short term help with horse feed.

Equine Wellbeing Rescue is simply a godsend for horses that have been neglected or abused or just ignored and left to starve. This rescue has come to the aid of so many animals- horses, burros and other pets in need- that they deserve the recognition of the community at large and the appreciation of all animal lovers everywhere. Because they go above and beyond when it comes to helping sick or injured horses I see their need for the donations from people who want to help but cannot be there in person. Donations are the lifeblood of a rescue, making it possible for the rescue to do the work they need to do to save animals. Bless you for all you do, Equine WbR!

I have rehomed a couple of horses through the auspices of EqWr. What I find attractive is that the organization tries to foster out and rehome as many animals as they can, rather than taking them all in house, then asking for much larger donations off feed and materials. They do the most with the least and I find that significant. The horse I adopted is currently sitting at the top of the Featherweight Endurance Standing for the Pacific South region. How is that for a successful rescue!

They are very compassionate and willing to do anything like drive thousands of miles to pick up a horse in trouble.

Equine Wellbeing is not just a place that provides great physical care for horses and donkeys. They also provide emotional support to the animals many that come in scared and closed off. I've witnessed the weak and frightened turn into the strong and confident because Christine and Lary understand that they need more than just food and water, they need to feel safe. One only needs to visit to see proof of a job well done!

Christine Griffin and her volunteers at Equine Well Being Rescue provide compassionate loving care to horses and donkeys in need. Most are in need of "food", number one, and then vet and farrier care having been rescued from abusive and neglectful homes. Christine has transformed many a skeleton into a horse of beauty. She is an angel to horses in need and provides a great service to the White Mtn. area of AZ. Being a certified vet tech and equine dentist, Christine has the knowledge needed to care for horses in distress and she does so happily. She's a very unselfish person and I am proud to support her and Equine Well Being Rescue and I encourage you to join as well. Your donation goes 100% for the care of the horses. Nobody gets a paycheck at Equine Well Being Rescue. So, please donate now.

I've been volunteering at Equine Wellbeing for almost 3 years. The horses and donkeys are given individual attention. Their feed and healthcare is tailored to meet their specific needs. Christine dedicates herself to their care and happiness. All the animals in her care live happy, stress-free lives and it shows in their friendly, curious, gentle faces.

After rescuing our precious mare Penelope we turned to Equine Wellbeing for much needed advice and support. Additionally, we continue to financially donate to this exceptional group that honors the majesty of all equine, big and small.

My company donates all we can to Equine Rescue groups and Equine Wellbeing Rescue is one to be emulated. They go the full 100 miles to bring horses in critical condition back to health. From there, these people search high and wide for the perfect home where they can entrust that horse's life and no longer fear that the animal will return to the state they found it in. There are some great rescues. These are in those ranks. Sincerely, Raymond Petterson, Sox For Horses, Inc.

We have two rescue donkeys from Equine Wellbeing Rescue and love them both. Christine was a joy to work with and by just one minute with her you can see how much of herself she dedicates to the animals and how much she loves them. I hope to take in more from her sometime in the future. Keep up the great work, you are filling your karma bank beyond full.

What a loving environment. If you have never worked with equines, you may not know how difficult it can be to establish trust. Christine has transformed both horses and donkeys into confident animals that could be welcomed into a loving home.

Equine WellBeing is a wonderful professionally run non-profit equine rescue serving horses and donkeys. Their mission is always carried out having in mind what is in the best interest of the animals. This rescue performs a valuable service and is very deserving of our support. Any financial donation will be honestly well spent in caring for the equines they serve.

What a fantastic charity dedicated to such a unique cause. Many of the animals cared for by this non-profit organization have had such hard lives and tragic backgrounds. I imagine arriving at Equine Wellbeing for them is like coming home to a sanctuary. They are so well loved and cared for upon their arrival- it is my pleasure and honor to be affiliated with both this cause and organization.

I have 2 adopted horses, one of which was adopted from EqWBR. Christine does an amazing job coordinating and networking with other humane organizations/rescues to provide sanctuary or find homes for at-risk equines regularly. She has also provided resources to those in need in the community to try to keep their equines when they have fallen on hard times. Humane care and treatment of these animals is the top priority for EqWBR. Christine puts a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into her rescue efforts and I have not seen her turn anyone away without trying to help in some way.

Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. has been on my radar for gifting since a friend I know forwarded me an email explaining what this non profit is all about several years ago. She was a horse lover and was looking for friends to help out and pull together to save horses from slaughter. I was intrigued. I like horses, but have never owned one. I have a cat and a guinea pig and live in a home with a backyard that has a pool and concrete deck. Not a blade of grass anywhere. I made a donation and felt good about it. The best part? Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. put me on their email list and I began to get regular updates on the work they do and just how much they rely on donations, both large and small. I have the utmost respect for Christine and her mission. I love seeing pictures of the horses (and now donkeys!) and hearing her success stories. Every animal saved is a victory and her efforts on re-homing are inspirational. I give when I can and feel so good about it. I wish I could do more. Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. has my vote as a TOP RATED NONPROFIT that I am thrilled to be associated with.

This rescue group does so much to help injured, ill, abandoned horses and donkeys in need of care, rehabilitation, and rehoming. They provide excellent shelter, food, medical care, and mental care of these animals in need. They have been great to work with, and let donors know how much their contribution helps. Wonderful, caring organization!

Christine cares. Deeply. I have seen Christine and Lary feed, water, and care for horses during my many visits. They are her babies. She knows them all so well and is so attentive to every behavior or physical change. It's just so inspirational to see them in action. Pure passion and untiring love. Our world is a better place because of Equine Wellbeing.

I don't know any other charity I contribute to as being as well-run, as heartfelt, and eager to go the extra mile than Christine Griffin's Equine WellBeing Rescue Inc. I get emails almost weekly about what horses and/or donkeys she has rescued from the slaughter houses or someone's farm where animals are being ill-kept. The animals she rescues are under a vet's care immediately, and the ones not adopted are sure to live out their days on her farm in Snowflake, AZ. Christine is always building new shelters or quarters for animals at the farm, and her care must be legendary because she attracts so many volunteers to the farm who are willing to help her in this endeavor. I know my donations are well-spent to help these animals.

We have helped them build shelters, fences and corrals to accommodate the horses and donkeys they take in to shelter. It is a tremendous effort on their part and requires a lot of effort and financial support to continue this important effort.

Christine and her group work tirelessly for horses and donkeys so that they can have a better chance for a good life. They run lean and almost all (if not all) of the money goes directly to the rescue and care of the animals.
Not only do I support their work whenever and however I can, but I worked with them to try to arrange a rescue through them for a horse in California. Christine was going to come to Southern California, herself, to get the horse.
I can't say enough good things about their work and their character. We need more people like them in the world.

I am in the process of applying for a mini rescued jenny. I have worked with dog rescue for over thirty years and these folks ask all the right questions to ensure the horse/donkey will go to the right home that will love and properly care for them. They are honest about what you are getting into so there are no surprise's that would cause you to return the animal. I highly recommend you look at this nonprofit if you are looking to adopt an equine.

These are hard-working people who devote all their time and effort to caring for, and finding good homes for animals that desperately need it. Their love for these animals knows no bounds. We enjoy going to the ranch and helping with maintenance issues and also giving love and attention to the animals to help them get socialized. These people are more than devoted to the animals, they are committed.
