Review for Horses Healing Hearts Inc, Boynton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My grandson, Dylan, who is now age 15 in high school has been going to the HHH barn in Delray Beach the past five years. Through the years, he has had a place to share his anxious moments, moves to new schools, greatly improve his relationship with his mother who he lives with, and is now experiencing meeting his dad and trying to form a relationship with him. Thank goodness for HHH, Dylan has always had a place to talk, share, and listen to other kid's experiences, and realize he is not alone.

Dylan truly loves HHH, Rhonda and Liz. This organization is a very important part of his life in so many ways. I am so thankful to Liz who gave Dylan the opportunity to shine when they went to Washington, DC together last year, and Dylan was able to speak in a committee meeting about how HHH helped to teach him how to understand what alcohol and drugs do to a family and why everyone must step up to the plate with legislation. One day he will look back and say, "I can't believe I really did that!"

So kudos to a great organization, fabulous leaders, wonderful volunteers, and those beautiful horses the kids all love soooooo much!

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

change nothing! But would wish they received a fabulous grant so that they could serve more children in the community. The need is so overwhelming for the services this organization provides.

Review for Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Loxahatchee Groves, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I recently adopted "Lady" a mix lab. Lady is being trained to be a service dog for me. I was fortunate enough to meet a trainer that went to BDRR and chose a dog she thought would train well for me. Lady has been with Melody Owens, trainer/owner at Star Dog Obedience.

Our experience with the Ranch Rescue was nothing but 5 star from beginning to end.

We have had many dogs in our life time from standard poodles, to minerature poodles, to shar-peis, to german shepherds, but "Lady" is the sweetest, most loving dog. She is approximately 1-3 years old, was house broken and is just fabulous.

I have never purchased a shelter dog before, now I would only recommend them. I love Big Dog Ranch Rescue and I love our Lady!

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

None - they are great!
