Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Helping Hearts Equine Rescue is an amazing place both for animals and people. It is a wonderful feeling to work with the horses and look in their eyes, not knowing what each horse has been through, but knowing that they are safe, loved, and well cared for now. To follow their progress as they regain their trust in people and improve their health is not something one can quite put into words. Each horse is given excellent veterinary care and lots of room to play and socialize with other horses.

Everyone here works together for the good of the animals and the volunteers are such a great group of people that have come together for a mutual cause...their love of animals. We so enjoy taking care of these precious horses from grooming to whatever needs to be done around the barn. In return we receive their nudges, nickers, and kind eyes thanking us for our time and affection. We get to see how compassionate care and receiving the love they deserve changes the entire picture for these horses. If you listen to a horse, there is always something to learn. What more can one ask for?

Lisa Post, founder, has created a safe-haven for not only the horses but other animals such as our pot-bellied pig, goats, chickens, rabbits, and who knows what the next day will bring to Helping Hearts Equine Rescue! Lisa goes above and beyond to rescue these horses from abuse, neglect, and slaughter; which is a horrible fate that I wish we could rescue every horse from. She has given so many horses that chance to live and be surrounded by those that care and love them. Even those horses that come to us in such a bad way that we are not sure they will be able to pull through, once they get to Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Lisa makes sure that they are given the veterinary care needed, nurtured. well cared for, and best of all, loved for the rest of their lives.

I am so grateful to be a part of this group and so blessed to be able to share time every week with the horses. It is good for the soul and offers me a peace that I can't find anywhere else. There are a lot of rewards here for people and animals. Some of the horses have a forever home with Helping Hearts; others will be adopted and that is such a happy feeling when one of these magnificent horses finds a loving home. You can feel everyone's joy as the news is shared at the farm.

Helping Hearts Equine Rescue does great things for horses and I am proud to be a part of this organization. I am fortunate to know and work with the people and horses that make this place what it is. One cannot volunteer at Helping Hearts Equine Rescue without leaving with a smile on their face and a warmth in their heart anticipating their next visit. Best of all, it is knowing that what we do here, truly makes a difference in the life of every horse that passes through the barn doors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

All is good.
