Review for Tara Farm Rescue, Coventry, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Tara Farm Rescue for the past 4 years. I have seen so many animals walk through our gates for the first time with a look of sadness and defeat in their eyes. But soon they transform into a complete different animal who understands that they have a second chance at life. That is what I love the most about the farm. It is a chance for animals to learn to be animals again and to realize that not all people are bad. Some people can be so heartless towards animals but not BonnieJeanne. BonnieJeanne has a way with all animals and they can feel it. She gives them the very best vet treatment and thinks only about the care of her animals. Yes i agree the barn may not be the most beautiful because it is a rescue and all the money goes right into the vet, farrier, dentistry bills, etc. and the animals are in the best health. It breaks my heart to hear people talk such crap about the farm when all BonnieJeanne does is devote her life to rescuing animals and rehabilitating them. I would also like to add, that as a college student, I may be one of these "children" mentioned in previous comments. I VOLUNTEER my time to these animals as do the other girls. I CHOOSE to muck stalls and exercise horses because I enjoy it and I chose to be a part of this organization, rather than any other riding stable, because I believe that Tara Farm Rescue is an amazing place that truly puts only the animals first.

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

that the animals get the very best care!

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

very interested in devoting their time to these animals and learning more about good animal care. They are all friendly and very helpful.

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

build a specific building for vet care and more stalls and housing to allow for more animals to be rescued.

Ways to make it better...

I could spend all my time with these amazing animals.

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

people who try to close down an amazing organization just because they are angry that since they did not follow their contract, they had their horse taken away.
