Review for Dreamcatcher Wild Horse And Burro, Ravendale, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The main reason I support this non-profit is 1) the fact that take in previously rounded up and/or adopted wild horses and burros and returns them to a life similar to what they experienced in the wild. Barbara Clarke also takes in aged and/or retired domestic horses. Her statement on her website is: "When one works on animal issues, one is working on the first rung of the ladder that leads us up toward a more compassionate, inclusive and humane community." She also points out the connection, discovered by researchers involved in both children services and animal welfare, that show overlapping circles of domestic violence, child abuse and animal cruelty. To work toward a more humane world for animals is to work toward a more humane world for people also."

My goal is to raise awareness of what she's doing for these horses and help fund donations for her to have a small motorcyle or 4 wheeler to use when she goes out to check on the horses or bring some in for medical attention. Currently she accomplishes this on foot! These animals have a sense of real freedom while being safely watched over and cared for if needed. My goal is to win the lottery and help her to continue the amazing work she does - just not on foot anymore! LOL

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

Make sure there were decent 4-wheelers available that could easily handle the terrain and get her to wherever the horses might be, and then home again! LOL

Review for Habitat For Horses Inc, Alvin, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The main reason I donate to HFH is because it is a full service rescue operation. Jerry Fitch not only operates "hands on" with the horses they are caring for, he is also involved in most every aspect of rescue, restoration of health and trust with humans, and working with local law enforcement when it comes to rescuing and removing horses/burros from a variety of abusive situations! He attracts amazing volunteers who embrace his vision of love and patience restoring a horse's mental (as well as physical) health, and makes sure that the right animal goes to the right adopter. I cannot begin to describe the amount of respect and admiration I have for him and his organization. He sets the bar for every other rescue out there!

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

find a way to donate more time and money to support this amazing man and his volunteers! They are changing the world one horse (and sometimes one teenager off the streets!) at the same time! He is my HERO!!
