Review for Days End Farm Horse Rescue Inc, Lisbon, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Days End Farm is an organization of hope, care, and compassion. Through its staff and volunteers, it has helped save hundreds of horses from certain death as a result of starvation, lack of care, or abuse. This world needs more organizations built upon this type of foundation and which function as effectively as Days End. It often amazes me how people can jump to conclusions without having all the information needed to reach an informed judgment. The negative comments that have been written about Days End -- whose purpose is to help rescue and rehabilitate neglected and abused horses and to help educate the public about their care -- appear to be misinformed, unnecessary, mean-spirited, and ugly. Days End has been criticized for its policies that seek to ensure quality of life for the horses in its care. We have been faced with strong language and criticism due to our cooperation with Maryland counties who request our assistance during an animal impound. Days End has never initiated an impound of horses on private land. We always work at the request of and cooperate with experienced and qualified animal control and rescue agencies. The vision for this organization represents the work it does and what it stands for: rescue, rehabilitation, training, education, and finding adoptive homes for abused and neglected horses. We do this in order to achieve the ultimate creation of a closely bonded relationship between these horses and caring human beings. We also work to ensure this relationship is based on trust, respect, love, loyalty and humane care. As a Board member, I wish to extend a heartfelt "thank you" to all of the staff and volunteers who work to help the horses in Days End's care and who do it so well!
