Review for Sanctuary At Maple Hill Farms Inc, Auburn, ME, USA
The Founding Director of Maple Hill Farm is someone I have known quite well for several years and have worked with in rescue assistance for several years as well. I know many of the sanctuary horses who live at Maple Hill Farms from being directly or indirectly involved in the work needed to get them safely in the care of Maple Hill Farms Sanctuary. Many of the horses were last minute saves from auctions frequented by killbuyers and these horses were the most high risk because of age, injuries, or uncureable (but treatable) conditions. The injured and aged ones were most likely never going to be adoptable, but they were never turned away by the Director of Maple Hill Farm where they have a comfortable and caring home and the medical care they need for their remaining life. Many of the horses thru the years have also been owner surrenders where their owners either passed away or became medically unable to care for them, and again I have never known a horse to be turned away no matter how tight it is for space or finances. I've been much involved in assisting this organization for some time now with fundraising, searching for and evaluating other types of funding, such as grants or sponsors, (very seldom available these days) and offering assistance wherever it is needed. For all the personal sacrifices made by the Director to first care for the horses of Maple Hill before caring about herself I give the Organization & the Director a rating of 5 stars.
