My wife and I have followed Front Range Equine Rescue since their beginning. We have watched as they've grown from a handful of horses to having helped hundreds, if not, thousands with all of their programs. We have been long-time donors; their annual calendar gives great overview to the horses and activities. Thumbs up!

Our family visited Front Range Equine Rescue several years ago, but we remember it with great fondness. Our granddaughter to this day still remembers the horses and that trip! We have supported FRER's work for over 10 years now and are proud to be supporters. They have made such a positive difference to horses that have been neglected, abused or almost sent to slaughter. Can't say enough good things about these folks!

We have followed Front Range Equine Rescue for many years now and donate at the holidays or other special occasions in lieu of gifts. Their work is exemplary and they have accomplished a great deal on behalf of less fortunate horses. They are financially sound and use their funding for its intended purposes. This is very important to me as I work in the financial management industry.

I'm very careful about researching who I donate to as many charities do not excel at their intended purpose. Not so with Front Range Equine Rescue which has a proven record of using donor funds wisely and for the intended purpose. Front Range Equine Rescue's program achievements are to be applauded when it comes to a comprehensive rescue program for abused horses. They go above and beyond what most are capable of doing and serve as a true role model in the horse rescue field.

I've watched this organization grow from a handful of rescued horses to an organization which has helped thousands of abused horses with dedicated rescue and educational efforts. I know my donations have gone toward ensuring horses get the best care possible as they come first with Front Range Equine Rescue. The efforts of a small group of people at Front Range have really made a powerful impact to improve the lives of horses found in poor to life-threatening conditions.

I have supported and worked with Front Range Equine Rescue for the past three years. The mission of this organization and the fearless advocacy of Hilary Wood are inspiring. Front Range Equine Rescue has been at the forefront of important issues involving horse welfare and rescue and fights to maintain free-roaming wild horses and burros on public lands in the United States. Front Range Equine Rescue also continues to lead the stampede against the slaughter of horses for human consumption.

I have contacted this charity and found it very easy to connect with them and talk to them. I love their dedication to a wonderful cause. I have contributed to them for years and requested that Charity Navigator add them so that others could get validation of this worthy cause.

I have been a donor (and have volunteered) with this rescue since 1997. Front Range Equine Rescue is an outstanding organization with integrity, compassion, common sense, practical solutions to horse slaughter, and excellent business practices. They were the first equine rescue in Colorado to receive accreditation from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries which conducts a thorough review of financials, operations, and onsite inspection of facilities, files, and horses plus interviews with staff and/or volunteers. Front Range has grown tremendously since its beginning and works at a national level while maintaining a very grassroots perspective. I know my donations are put to use exactly where and as needed and their horses receive excellent care.
