This is an excellent nonprofit that serves the horse/animal population and the human population. I have donated money and horse supplies over the years . Cheryl and her large team of volunteers always do whatever it takes to save any animal from an bad situation. We also adopted a wonderful donkey from Save the Horses.
My husband and I met Cheryl Flanagan and learned about HRRRF when we were looking to rescue a donkey. What we discovered was a rescue of the first order. Cheryl makes sure that her rescues only go to good homes. If they need medical care and rehab, she keeps them until they are fit, and then looks for the perfect home. She will keep them forever rather than put them in the wrong environment. All animals are well fed and groomed. There are always lots of volunteers around taking care of all the animals. Also, Cheryl runs a wonderful program for children who have experienced trauma and benefit from time spent with animals. We were able to adopt a wonderful donkey that has become a much loved pet and companion for my horse. We donate to this rescue on a regular basis.
I have visited and donated through the years...great caring people. they are working hard to help the horses...
We have adopted 7 horses and two dogs from this rescue over the years. We currently have 4 horses and 2 dogs that we care for. Cheryl Flannigan works tirelessly for animals at risk/need. The volunteers who give of their time, money, and love WANT to be there. They are the best volunteers ever. Can't say enough good things about the work they do for all animals. Please give generously.
I am a follower of this rescue organization and have donated to them several times. I am continually impressed by their energy, dedication, and massive amounts of compassion for the horses and other animals they rescue. I have seen them organize very large rescue operations on short notice to get horses to safety who are in very grave danger. I 100% support them and think that they--and the horses and other animals that they help on a daily basis--deserve all the support they can get.
They help horses regardless of age, breed, health, 'rideability' or temperament. They invest in the horses as well as the community by teaching people about horses. They save from slaughter, from animal control, from deplorable conditions. They take in all kinds of horses and love, care for and find homes when it is appropriate and keep on their farm when they need to. The dwarf minis are great examples.
Horse Relief & Retirement Fund does so much to help horses (and sometimes other unfortunate animals as well.) I do not know of a group with a bigger heart, not to mention the amount of work they do. They work 24/7 to make sure all animals are properly taken care of and loved. It makes me happy to see these animals gain weight, get medical attention and get the love they need and deserve. I am so glad they exist, so these animals do not have to suffer and can lead a wonderful life. I cannot say enough good things about Horse Rescue & Relief Retirement Fund.
This is a great group of people. The farm promotes a lot of community interaction and is a fun and positive place to volunteer at. One of the things I like about the organization is its willingness to help any animal and other rescue organizations, with many of the volunteers pitching in at any time and with short notice. It's a great mix of helping animals and people.
A most amazing group which blends the work to rescue horses with assisting special needs kids (riding programs) fostor kidz, healthy lifestyle yoga, arts, UGANDA internship opportunities at UGA, ... finding soapy ways to benefit others while helping horses... the best of programs)
I have 3 rescue horses from Horse Rescue and Relief. These people do the most wonderful job with all of the horses. They don't turn away the tough cases and pour their hearts into every horse. As far as I am concerned these are the most dedicted rescue people I know. I wish I could win the lottery and give it to them !!!!!!!
