Review for Horse Rescue Idaho dba Idaho Horse Rescue, Meridian, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In all of my adult life, (I’m 68), I have never witnessed or been involved as a donor and a sponsor with a better organization....better in every way. Our Humane Society no longer takes horses; therefore, Idaho Horse Rescue is the go-to equine rescue facility for law enforcement and the public when horses are in danger, abused, neglected, abandoned, starved, etc. Robert Bruno, IHR founder, takes all these horses in, I think he’s up to 38 now, and gives each and every one of them all the care they need. This involves veterinary care, farrier work, rehabilitation both physical and mental, special feed when necessary, shelter and turnout, and training as needed so horses may eventually be adopted. He gives permanent homes to horses that are too old, too ruined, too hurt to be adopted. His acreage is pristine, the horses have everything they need including love. Because of the volume of horses taken in by IHR, Mr Bruno is constantly building more shelters, an additional barn, round pens, holding pens for the newcomers to settle in, etc. Mr Bruno has his own full-time construction business and yet spends every minute of his “spare” time doing things for the horses, planning rescues, building, mucking stalls and so on. He even rescued a horse chest deep in snow via a helicopter! And he coordinated that incredible rescue! He does this all with the help of a few volunteers and with the help of generous donors. His rescue operation is extremely organized and making donations is very easy. I wish I could put into words how wonderful this man is and how splendid his efforts are, the end result being safe haven for a multitude of beautiful equines. I would give him a Purple Heart if I could and what he does brings tears to my eyes. The world needs many, many more people like Robert Bruno and his rescue operation. The dedication it takes to do what he does is mind-boggling. Thanks go to donors as well, for without public support, whether it be monetary, hay, feed, blankets, construction supplies/labor, veterinarians, good souls who contribute simply by grooming the horses, mucking some stalls, picking up donations, etc, this phenomenal refuge for these spectacular animals might not continue to be possible. He is one man doing the most incredible work for multitudes of equines in need. Thank you Idaho Horse Rescue. Lori Moore
