Review for Mitchell Farm Equine Retirement Inc, Salem, CT, USA
I have been involved with Mitchell Farm since the very beginning in 2004. First as a boarder and volunteer, then as a retiree "mom" and volunteer and now as a president of the board of directors. Our founder, Dee Doolittle, had a wonderful vision 12 years ago to start a safe sanctuary for an unwanted segment of the equine population - the senior and/or infirm horse. Since that time Dee and our wonderful army of volunteers have fulfilled our mission and vision statements of offering a beautiful and humane alternative to the sometimes perilous life of the senior horse. This organization works very hard to give each and every "resident" a peaceful and dignified life to their very last day. Every donated dollar is extremely well spent ( less than 2.5% administration costs) to care for the horses left in our care. I can't think of a better animal welfare organization and I KNOW my own retired horses could not have had a better home to spend their last years. Thank you Dee and all of the volunteers for making the dream of MFER a reality.
