Review for Central Virginia Horse Rescue, Brodnax, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at CVHR since 2010 and have adopted two incredible horses from there. They do the very best they can for every horse that they rescue ...getting veterinary care, special feed if needed and being available 24/7 for the horses needs. They aren't afraid to make the hard calls (although it will break their hearts ) but will not allow any horse to suffer when no hope is left. They are an outstanding organization !!

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been volunteering for Central Virginia Horse Rescue for 2+ years and adopted our 2 horses from them also. They will do almost anything to help a horse in need. I have seen totally emaciated horses be brought back to health and ultimately adopted into good, approved homes.
Cindy Smith, the executive director, is willing to do almost anything to help horses...including exhausting all their savings. She spends all her waking time either working with the horses, trying to raise funds for animals surgeries or food or trying to coordinate with other people agencies to find horses (any equines ) homes.

Jo-Ann, it has actually been 4 years. Our babies like Frodo have grown up and are going to college now and learning to be good equine citizens. And who would have thought that it would have started with story time. Thank you for helping out here.

I have volunteered at Central Virgina Horse Rescue for more than 2 years now. Cindy,the CEO and founder ,does all and more thats she's capable of doing to ensure that horses that come across her path are very well taken care. She has rescued numerous horses that were emaciated and brought them back to a good weight and found them suitable homes . She has made improvements to the facilities and
continues to try to insure she's providing the best she is capable of . I love volunteering there !!

I have been volunteering for CVHR since Oct.,2010. My husband and I adopted 2 horses from CVHR in November ,2010 and are overwhelmingly please with them. Although my time there is more a matter of "socializing" the horses or poinies than working due to my own physical limitations, I do feel part of the "CVHR" family. Cindy willingly gives of herself to provide a haven for equines that are either facing slaughter or have already been subjected to abuse. Unfortunately,due to the rural area the rescue is in ,there is not a large population base to draw volunteers from and Cindy is more often than not the one doing all the work. She has a heart devoted to caring for all animals and the knowledge and skills to under gird that heart.
