Review for Heaven Can Wait Equine Sanctuary for Healing and Learning, San Miguel, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My family and I were able to enjoy the peaceful enjoyment of being able to walk freely with the horses at Heaven Can Wait. We help brush, wash and I even massaged one. I have two special needs boys and they were so gently and playful with them. Those horses are like humans and they want to socialize just like we do. The connection between those in need and these majestic animals cannot be described in words only in the peace and love one feels from being around them. If I didn't live 2 hours away, this would be my weekend haven.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the reinforcement of knowing these horses are gifts from God and they are here to help us become better people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Can't think of a thing. Susan is amazing at what she does and she is somehow able to create opportunities for others that are invaluable from what little she has to work with (funding wise).

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Move closer to my home. :)

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I learned skills on how to take care of horses. I learned that each one has a different personality just like humans. They are so fun to be around.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Wonderful! I felt like I was where I belonged. I felt accepted with no judgements on my shoulder. There aren't too many places I can go that make me feel like that.

Role:  Volunteer & Brushed, washed, walked, massaged and pet the horses.
