Review for Square Peg Foundation, Half Moon Bay, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughters have been volunteering at Square Peg Ranch for about six months and it has been a delightful experience as well as an invaluable learning opportunity. Joell's horses are always treated with loving kindness and it shows. After a few ground rules and common sense pointers were learned I have always felt that my girls were safe around these large animals. Because they are so well cared for, they respond in kind. In addition, learning what it takes to maintain a farm has been a privilege, hard work ( good for body and soul ) and a ton of fun. With horses, dogs, cats, and goats, Joell's place is the worlds best petting zoo, where you will also meet the nicest and smartest people around.

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

the happiness of the staff, clients, volunteers and resident animals at Square Peg Ranch.

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

do it the way Joell does.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

having the opportunity to be around the horses in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all outstanding individuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have the large pastures that would keep all the horses in seventh heaven.

Ways to make it better...

I had only known about Square Peg sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the weather.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if you love your kids,you should sign up with Square Peg Foundation. There's no better way to earn community service credits while you learn and have fun.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
