Professional with expertise in this field

Rating: 5

The director of HPAF, Morgan Silver, is a professional in the capacity of working as an arm of the law in seizing abused and neglected horses and in the care of horses in critical condition as the result of starvation. Go to the HPAF web site and look at before and after pictures of rescued horses. You are going to see some 30 day miracles. Horses that were very close to death, are now happy, round, healthy and happy individuals. Morgan also is a whiz at connecting horses to prospective adopters. I am the proud foster parent/caretaker of two HPAF rescues and know first hand that HPAF is a a five star recovery unit for neglected and abused equines. Please support HPAF in any way possible.

When we went looking for a horse to adopt, Morgan and her wonderful team of volunteers took the time to help us find just the perfect match. We adopted Demi almost a year ago and we absolutely love her. All the horses at HPAF are well-cared for and you can tell that the staff and volunteers are committed to rescuing and caring for these animals, many of which come from sad or abusive situations. Keep up the great work HPAF!!

I volunteer at this amazing equine rescue center. HPAF has been saving horses for 24 years and accomplishing huge things on a very small budget. HPAF is funded entirely from donations, and 100% of the donations go to the charity -- not to any collection agency.

Morgan is the driving force and Executive Director and does tremendous work. She tirelessly fights against animal abuse and neglect by giving presentations and writing articles, collects evidence and represents her rescues in court, nurses them back to health, sees to their rehabilitation and placement, and is currently caring for 66 horses with her volunteers.

If you love horses, donate to this rescue center. http://www.hpaf.org

I have the honor of volunteering at this wonderful organization that does amazing work with horses that have come to them under a variety of issues. Some are starving and some have been neglected or abused and some owners have just surrendered their horse because they know the care they receive under the direction of Morgan Silver who works tirelessly 356 days a year to save these horses. There is no more deserving facility of donations then this one. I am honored to have met Morgan and admire her strength and courage to do the work she does.
