Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Our 501c3 nonprofit rescue is a small volunteer based rescue that specializes in gaited breeds (Tennessee Walking horse, Rocky Mountain horse, Missouri Fox Trotter, Paso etc.). We also rescue "long ears" (donkeys, mules). There are many auctions that supply the foreign-owned slaughter houses that kill horses for human consumption abroad. We assist horses through owner surrenders, neglect cases, local auctions outbidding kill-buyers, buying sick or injured horses and purchasing directly out of kill pens. Our goal is to save as many lives as possible. Our Purpose: Save Equines from neglect and abusive situations and provide them with loving homes for life. To educate the public about horse welfare and care. To enlist public support and funding to rescue horses from abuse, slaughter and neglect alone, or in cooperation with local, state or federal agencies or with other nonprofit organizations. Re-home/train rescues animals with the intent of placing for adoption.

Results: We have saved over 145 horses and placed over 125 in loving homes

Programs: Rescue, maintenance & adoptive services provided to horses which have been subjected to negligent care or potential slaughter.

It's been a year since my last review and Deb never fails to amaze me. Her dedication to the animals and making sure they are trained and ready for their new homes is paramount. She strives for success stories. She is tireless in her efforts. This is one Rescue that is as top notch as you can get. I only wish others would follow her example of" how to do it right". Please go to her website and check out Beech Brook Farm in Mystic Ct., you will be delighted.

Beech Brook rescue is about endless devotion to the animals and to the staff of volunteers. Dedication and education is what sets this rescue apart from all the others. Careful consideration is given to all who wish to adopt. Deb goes above and beyond most and it shows. She is a leader with strong conviction for what she does. I have been very impressed by her and her operation. Blessed are the animals that find their way to her farm. Each animal is loved and cared for on an individual bases.
