Review for Dream Acres Equine Sanctuary, Mobile, AL, USA
Within the past year, financial difficulties resulted in my family having to sell our horses before we could no longer afford them. After falling on even harder financial times, I knew I needed an outlet, a place to be around horses once more. After searching for nearby horse rescues, I found Dream Acres Equine Sanctuary, called Ariana, and went out to volunteer the first Saturday I could. While I knew I would fall in love with the horses and I knew that it was a horse haven, what I didn't expect was to find my second family, and my own haven. By my second time out there, I already felt like family and, whenever I drive out every foot I get closer during my 20 minute commute, takes away my stress until I am drained of my issues and completely happy and ready to help. Because I grew up around horses, culminating in about 11 years of being around them, I knew they would relieve my stress, but I didn't know that the people would do that as well. Not only can I not thank Ariana and all the volunteers, and the horses out there enough for helping me (whether they realize it or not), but to try to explain how much everyone out there truly loves and adores and cares for all the animals would take up more than just the space of a review. Ariana gives the rescue and the horses her all. Because I volunteer at the rescue, I can attest to the amount of work, dedication, and, most of all, LOVE that she, and everyone out there, pours into the horses and into assuring that they and the property are maintained well and are healthy. ALL of the proceeds go the horses, which in this day and age is not as common as it should be. It's truly amazing and inspiring how Dream Acres Equine Sanctuary is able to turn starved creatures into majestic, kind, and loving horses and companions. The horses that come in, find more than a home, they find their dream acres, their tales are those of the phoenix, being reborn again. And if that sound too poetic to be true, it's because you haven't felt their magic yet! I love Dream Acres Equine Sanctuary, all the people, all the horses, and all the animals. They are truly wonderful and I really do feel that I am changing the world by being out there, the rescue is certainly changing MY world. I can't recommend them enough! If you can donate, volunteer, sponsor, adopt, or share their message, DO IT! They're awesome!
