Review for Orphan Acres Inc., Viola, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Orphan Acres for 10 years. I love this place. I am excited to take two of their horses in September. I am building a barn and getting ready. I volunteer up there every week even though I live an hour and 15 minutes away. 6 years ago I moved down to Lenore but I have to get my "horse fix." All the horses are so good and they love people. they are well cared for and love getting carrots and apples. I recommend doing there!!

I have been volunteering at Orphan Acres Horse Rescue for 9 years. I relocated my animal family and my husband to Northern Idaho to be near this wonderful 45 year old horse rescue that has helped relocate 4500 abused, abandoned and cast away horses that may have gone to slaughter. Brent Glover has devoted his life to this wonderful sanctuary. This is truly a sanctuary where he has horses that are in their 40's. Whether they be retired race horses, abused horses, horses left from a dying or careless owner, Brent does all that he can to rehabilitate, find loving homes or keep these horses so they can retire in peace. If you are in the Northwest area of Idaho, come and visit. I live in Lenore which is an hour and a half away but I try to get up there once a week to have fun with the horses, help with the chores or help with paperwork in the office. WE are so excited that Rogers Subaru from Lewiston, Idaho has chosen Orphan Acres to be the local non profit for SHARE THE LOVE Subaru program which starts in November and goes to January . With every Subaru purchase, the company donates $250 to Orphan Acres, ASPCA, Meals on Wheels or National Park Foundation. I am proud to be part of Rogers Subaru and Subaru of American for caring about what people drive, the environment and helping local community events such as Share the Love. If you have a chance, call 208-882-9293 and stop in. You will be glad you did. The horses love visitors and we would love to have you!!

I have been working with Brent Glover and his horses for 9 years. I love it every time I go up there from my home in Lenore, Idaho. I moved up from Tucson 8 years ago after flying up 3 times the summer of 2010. I liked what I saw. I loved the passion and experience Brent has in working with his horses that have been abused, neglected or just unwanted. He has rehomed 4000 horses in the last 45 years of being a rescue. I try to get up there once a week to help him with office work, mucking out the stall, brushing the horses, preparing the grain for the special diet horses. I do whatever I can to help him. I always feel so good when I am up there. If you are in the NW Idaho area, we love volunteers.
