Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal-Related, Animals, Arts & Culture, Children's Museums, Unknown

Mission: Older and managably disabled horses have many good years left and deserve a better life than slaughter or neglect. Due to their age and infirmity they are often cheap enough to be a child''s FIRST horse - thus The Golden Carrot will teach children how to make that cherished first horse last longer and be more useful. The horses, with miles of experience and seasoning, are delighted with children and often bond with them, teaching children that animals are people too and deserving of respect and consideration. These attitudes will last for the child''s lifetime and contribute to the care and life quality of all animals in the future. When our facility is full, we help to place older or disabled horses in suitable homes.

Geographic areas served: Southern California

Programs: Only to offer access to these horses - and lessons in grooming, tacking up, riding and caring for older horses.

Let me start off by saying this about Casey, she has a very huge heart when it comes to animals! That in my book has to be the number thing when being in this line of work. She puts her heart and soul into The Golden Carrot and it really shows! All the animals are very well taken care of and they are very happy. I have been to other rescues before and the animals are not always happy or tended to very well. What Casey is doing in such a wonderful service to these animals! A 5 star rating is not good enough, if you ask me!

I met Casey ten years ago, after reading an article in a local newspaper about Golden Carrot and a wonderful person who has unselfishly dedicated her life to helping horses and other animals. I put my kids (son 11 and daughter 3 at the time) and a 20lb bag of carrots in a truck and went to meet Casey. We became volunteers at GC. My daughter became absolutely in love with those beautiful giants, especially Bucky and Hava. Since then, we moved away, but she still has fond memories of the GC and is now involved in helping at a local animal rescue organization and is a devout horseback rider. What we saw at Golden carrot was unconditional love and dedication of one woman who was single-handedly taking care of about twenty horses (at that time). Golden Carrot is a great place where people of all ages are able to experience the joy of giving/receiving love thanks to the wonderful, deserving animals and a lady with a golden heart.
