Review for Iron Gait Percherons Inc. - Draft Horse Rescue, Waleska, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Iron Gait Percherons Draft Horse Rescue is the best rescue and equine advocate facility I have ever been to and adopted from. Denise and her volunteers are tireless advocates for horses in need. Although Percherons are her primary focus, Denise assists any horse, large or small, but she doesn't limit herself. She has rescued dogs, cats, donkeys, ponies, peacocks, goats, and people. Her facility relies on donations and the hard work of volunteers and she gives back every cent with every creature she saves. Those creatures that don't find new homes are sanctuaries and live out their lives on the acres of her beautiful safe haven.

I have watched this organization respond to countless calls for help, both in Georgia and in distant states. They drive hours to the best vet facilities for the horses that need the best and most progressive treatments. Denise and her volunteers wake early to work and stay up nights with the sick, injured, and pregnant. They are committed to educating the public. They hold auctions and benefits, attend parades and fairs, and make their facility open to any and all interested parties.

Denise's adoption process is selective to ensure that each horse she places for adoption finds their perfect home. She and her volunteers know the personalities and needs of each of their horses and she draws on this and her experience to match adoptable horses to ideal adoptees. It is thanks to this process that I have two of the best horses I have ever owned. Denise has personally always made herself available to me for any question I have. She offers advice and help when I need it. She has gone above and beyond for me and my horses, providing me with any information about them and digging deeper to help me complete their histories.

This is a rescue exceedingly worthy of praise, recommendation, and donations.
