Review for Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue Inc, Hardy, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In the depressed economy currently affecting our nation, it is heroic efforts from organizations like Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue that provide hope for horses whose owners no longer can, or worse, no longer choose to, care for them. It is a honor and privilege to donate to these altruistic efforts, and sponsor six of Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue's rescued horses. If you cannot adopt or provide a foster home for one or more of these noble horses who so want and deserve a second change for a forever home, please consider sponsoring one or more horses. Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue is staffed with people who genuinely care for each horse, and ensure that donations are used for animal care, not indirect administrative costs. For the sake of all horses who need a second chance nationwide, thank God there are agencies like Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue!

Review for Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue Inc, Hardy, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have a Mustang whose training has been a challenge. I reached out to Pat and RVHR, from whom I learned about an RVHR co-worker, Diane, who does Reiki. Diane's Reiki therapy has greatly assisted us to find a way to reach this very special horse, ease his issues, and enable him to willing move ahead with trust and training. This is just another example of the ways that Pat, Diane, and all of the special people at RVHR make such meaningful contributions to horses in need. Especially in our nation's troubled economic times, where families are forced to just give up their horse(s), or horses are neglected or abandoned in vacant fields or at truck stops, it is a blessing that caring organizations like RVHR exist to protect and care for the innocent victims. God bless Pat and RVHR for the wonderful works and support for our noble horses!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Where a series of trainers have given up on him, RVHR found us the solution, in Reiki therapy through RVHR associate, Diane, which has proven to be the key that unlocked the issues preventing my BLM mustang from progressing with trust and training.

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

Find ways to help RVHR to generate the funding and resources to continue, ideally, to expand their horse rescue and care efforts, so that no horse should ever have to suffer again.

Role:  Client Served & My BLM Mustang, D'Argo, received Reiki therapy, which benefits his physical and mental health, evidenced in therms of greater trust and willingness to accept training and handling. He's a notably happier horse knowing that he is respected and appreciated.
