Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA
One of the best rescues around. They are financially healthy, while other rescues I know are one step away from bankruptcy. Lisa works diligently to fund raise and keep donors apprised of what is going on. She keeps the numbers at manageable levels so every horse there gets the best care possible.
Review for Mylestone Equine Rescue a New Jersey Non-Profit Corporation, Phillipsburg, NJ, USA
This is one of the most wonderful equine rescues around. The place is always clean and the horses well taken care of. They also have a program for handicapped children to come and work with the horses, some of which also have handicaps. Money given will actually go to help the horses directly. The family that runs it is also very generous in helping fellow humans. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
Review for S P C A Hunterdon Co District, Milford, NJ, USA
The Hunterdon County SPCA is supposed to prevent cruelty to animals but it has been a long time since they actually did that. Their charter has been revoked and all their assets must be surrendered. They are being sued by a prominent equestrian because they filed charges against him based on a letter from a man in another state who did not even witness the incident. The charges were dismissed because they were filed long after the statute of limitations were up. The civil court found the horsemen not liable for the horse's injuries.
Review for Hunterdon Humane Animal Shelter Inc, Milford, NJ, USA
This shelter has more than $5 million in assets and yet the fences around the outside pens were allowed to rot and fall down. The state raided this shelter and charged its president with animal cruelty. The state ran the shelter for six months and adopted out nearly all the animals there. Many had been there for years. For years, no efforts are made to get pets adopted. The shelter director entered an agreement with the prosecutor to hold the charges in abeyance as long as she does not interfere with shelter management. She still comes to the shelter every day and her mere presence is intimidating to staff and volunteers and yet she is allowed to continue. Her sole duty now is to fund raise. Why does there need to be fund raising when there's $5 million plus in the bank? The shelter could live of the interest alone. The shelter is also embroiled in a lawsuit with the NJSPCA and a former employee who cooperated with prosecutors. All of this is well documented in the courts and media.
