I host a Public Affairs show on WIL in St. Louis & I had Wendi Neckameyer, President and Founder of Special Horses on as a guest to talk about the organization. Hearing her passion & learning so much about Special Horses, I know this is something I could feel comfortable sharing with my listeners. I am also grateful to Great Nonprofits because without you I never would have found Special Horses & I wouldn't have been able to help them spread the word of their mission &, believe me, their mission is one that needs to be shared.

This organization is truly a caring one - They support multiple rescues and organizations that that help and support our horses. They fund raise with donations, auctions (with absolutely unique and coveted items) - Bottom line THEY CARE and they support - they have HEART!
