The leaders of HPS are inspiring caring individuals who absolutely put the animals first and respect and appreciate their volunteers. I was there last weekend, a relative newcomer, helping with a particular annual project. Things were well organized, the animals were well cared for in great enclosures and had all been transformed from their initial state as rescue animals. HPS is a magical place changing the lives of countless animals. They have a huge pasture/pond/forest which looks like a fantasy novel when the horses are running throughout. I support the work and the people of HPS wholeheartedly!

PS: I have no idea why that negative reviewer posted such inaccurate information, granted several years ago... this place is fantastic!
