Review for Cozee Valee Rescue & Sanctuary, Huntingdon, PA, USA
I have been a monthly donor to Cozee Valee Rescue and Sanctuary for almost four years. I am greatly impressed with this organization and it's founder, Beth Hearn. Beth consistenly provides me with montly updates on the horse I sponsor, and she even takes the time to call me and send me pictures of the horse.
I also like the fact that she is actively involved in her own community. She attends expo's and fairs, educating the public about animal abuse/neglect and how to prevent it. She also acts as a resource for animals in her area by checking out possible abuse situations and even taking in the horse or other animal if she is able to.
She also works hard at fundraising in her community, by holding bake sales, candle sales, sandwich sales, and sales of t-shirts and hats. She just doesn't wait for people to give her donations - she does things herself to raise money for the rescue. And she also has a Board of Directors that is actively engaged with the mission of the rescue.
I have personally been involved in supporting horse rescues for the past four years, and CVRS is at the absolute top of my list of rescues I feel comfortable donating to. There are not many, as I do research before I give, and CVRS goes above and beyond my criteria for donating.
We need more trustworthy and transparent rescues like this - hats off to this one! Beth works very hard to both help and fundraise for her horses, and I appreciate what she does. It's not easy work, but she keeps at it.
So, 5 stars from me for this rescue; thank you Beth for all you do!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing how horses that were near death come back and flourish under Beth's care, and the care of her excellent vets.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
No changes - I just wish that Beth had a stronger revenue source so she could help even more animals!
