This equine organization has been around for 20 years. It keeps growing, so they must be doing something right. Great people that work with law enforcement on seizures, rehabilitate and adopt horses and donkeys after background checks. Highly recommended

Habitat for Horses puts their hearts and souls into saving the lives of innocent horses whose owners have abandoned or abused them. Their team is dedicated and each life saved is a celebrated victory...each loss...mourned. These folks are the real deal. They also adopt out horses to loving homes. Their stories will break your heart...but their love and dedication will mend it. Please help support them! I do..

Habitat for Horses has an important job. To educate those who are unaware of the importance of saving American icons and a piece of our American Heritage. If I lived closer, I would volunteer, but the best I can do is donate.

HFH is a champion for horses. They understand the needs of the animals and keep other horse advocates aware of the perils, the horses face.

This is an excellent organization to donate to help horses and burros. I have visited one of the properties where the livestock is kept. This is not a fly-by-night nonprofit, has been around helping animals for a long time. I know when I donate to this organization that the donation is going for what I had intended it for; helping horses. They do such an excellent job and really care about every animal in their possession. They do their very best to find forever homes for the ones that are adoptable. Those that are not adoptable have a forever home at one of the HFH facilities. This endeavor is not cheap, so any donation is a great help. If you donate to only one nonprofit, please make it Habitat for Horses.

I believe they're one of the best ... frequently I come across articles and news reports regarding HfH's involvement in the care of horses. I truly believe they have knowledge of horses and passion for horses, which is essential when caring for animals -- it's a 24/7 proposition! I make monetary donations whenever I can -- horses are expensive. I hope and pray they continue their great work and that they grow -- and take in as many horses as possible. (So many are in need due to horses' loss of public lands -- which they used to call home -- that are being taken over by the BLM and cattle ranchers).

Habitat for Horses has been there to help them recover and regain health.
They are doing a fantastic job caring for these animals and I am happy to support their efforts!

I wish I could rescue every horse, donkey, burro or mule needing help. Since that is impossible, it gives me great satisfaction to help support the wonderful work done by non-profit organizations like Habitat for Horses as they continue their missions of mercy in the field of equine rescue.

I love Habitat for Horses. The work they do to help these beautiful animals heal emotionally and physically is wonderful and allows these animals to get their forever homes. The work of caring for all these animals is long and hard and at times heartbreaking - yet they continue on, day and night, loving each and every one of their animals. Were it possible, I would adopt all of these beautiful animals.
Habitat for Horses is just that - a way to rescue, save, love and, when necessary, either adopt out the animals or provide a forever home for those with physical and emotional problems too severe to ever fully heal. I donate as much and as often as possible. And I am only too aware that there are, and continue to be, more animals than funds desperately needed to fight human cruelty and ignorance.
At its core, Habitat for Horses is more than an equine organization. It is a haven for warriors and angels alike dedicated to a mission fraught with heartache, heartbreak, and death. However, for every horse or donkey saved, so too is a human soul. To me, there is no greater calling...
There are no words sufficient enough to touch upon the selfless giving of Habitat for Horses. Suffering and sad, my only regret is the money required to save each animal, each human, indeed, our very world. Deplorable as this may be it is also an easy fix - it's only money. From penny to profit if we all give just a little bit we save the animals...we save ourselves. Habitat for Horses provides and protects this most sacred of gifts.

They have a special love for horses and they do a great job nurturing them and finding homes. Thank you Habitat for Horses. I wish there were more organizations like you!

It's all about the horses at Habitat for Horses -- society NEEDS more and more sanctuaries and rescue ranches like Habitat for Horses -- without them, horses (along with other animals) would truly be at a loss -- they need human intervention, they need shelter, food, caring, good health, comfort, the proper environment along with the proper activities. Habitat for Horses is one of the best homes for horses (by the way, if I'm not mistaken, other animals also are taken in).

I have supported HFH Inc for more than 10 years. I have also visited the facility, and seen first hand the wonderful caring work they do for the horses that come to them. I give them my highest praise and ask everyone who has a heart for animals in need to support this wonderful organization; Jennie M.

While I have always been an animal lover, it wasn't until my oldest granddaughter became enamored with horse back riding that these marvelous beauties became a new chapter in my life...The exceptional hard work and the love shown these animals by Habitat For Horses is unbelievable..I just wish I could afford to donate more funds to such a worthy cause...God must be smiling down on this group, you can believe that, He created these masterpieces and He knows that they will be taken care of, FIRST CLASS!!!!

This nonprofit is exceptional because of their enormous heart for equines. Their success stories are frequent and detailed. The ones that don't make it are honored and loved. They clearly tell you what happened to the animal, what they're going to do, what law enforcement is doing, and where your donation can do the most good. Their communication is excellent on the web site and via emails. This is especially nice for those of us who donate long distance and may never even travel to Hitchcock. I think they're everything an animal rescue should be - knowledgeable and completely devoted to seeing their animals have the best possible lives.

I started working with Habitat when they needed insurance for their place in Hitchcock. After getting to know the people and what they do I even went down and volunteered to learn more about them. What an amzing group of people! It was amazing to me how hard they worked to rehab these animals that had been so severley abused or neglected. I have been to their new location in Manvel, and the facility is top notch. I am proud to work with such an amazing group of people!

I have been donating monthly to HfH for over a year now and I so appreciate the hard work they do for their communities' abused horses and other equines, as well as the surrounding communities. I think I first heard about them from Willie Nelson, who adopted several horses from them. Jerry and the staff are so genuine and heartfelt in this tough work they do. I shudder to think where the past, present, and future abused horses would be without them. HfH works with law enforcement and from what I hear, HfH is the place people think of in all of Texas when they think of horse rescue. The staff has always been very gracious. I plan to continue donating to this worthy organization for years to come.

I have adopted two horses and a donkey from HfH and have been a member for over 10 years. The services the staff and volunteers provide to law enforcement and the equines of Texas and surrounding states are indispensable. The organization has helped hundreds (thousands?) of horses in need and it deserves all the financial support it can get.

HfH is one of the most dedicated, well managed, morally upright groups saving animals that I have ever known. Their tireless work to educate the public on a daily basis about the plight of both wild and domestic equines is unique. Some of the horses profiled have been subjected to unbelievable horror at the hands of humans, yet Habitat works their miracles in bringing these horses back to health. I am supremely confident that the monthly donation I send to support their wonderful, much needed rehabilitation of abused, starved and neglected equines is funding well spent.

HFH has been helping the four-legged kind for many tyears. Their mission and goals are much-needed in these trying times of mistreatment of animals. They have big hearts, kind thoughts and gentle hands when it comes to helping the horses and burros who are neglected, misused and abused. They work closely with law enforcement and other entities by being expert resources, educators and saviors. They reach far and wide and try their very best to do everything they can within their means. I wish I could help them as much as they need. But out of the few places I am able to donate to - Habitat for Horses was the place to get my attentions. Great people with a great cause!!!

Life is all about getting a second chance. Habitat for Horses gives horses and burros a second chance when no one else did. They show them that there is kindness, love and trust in this world. By giving them that they give that back to us. They touch our lives as much as we touch theirs. Habitat for Horses is their voice and we need let everyone know the great work they do for all the horses and burros that people have abused or abandoned. Keep doing the great things that you do!
Thanks,
Susan Calltharp

I donated after hearing about a horse named Naysa that had a barbed wire halter and had been dragged behind the trailer. Habitat for Horses was there for that horse, no matter what. They do amazing things and I hope you get noticed for all the hard work you do to save these horses! God Bless!
