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

Rating: 4 stars  

Even though I am not a volunteer anymore, I loved my time at RVHR. I grew up with horses and I missed them so much that I sought out RVHR and fell in love with it the first time I worked there. Pat is amazing as is her husband and all the other people who work to make RVHR a great place for horses. My favourite memory is of a horse named Dave that Pat had brought to the farm. He was very neglected and I had the task of brushing him. I cried when I started and those of you who have animals know that they know when you are upset. Dave would turn his head towards me as I brushed him sensing that I was upset and would nuzzle me. He was just so happy to have someone to take care of him and love him. Most animals are so forgiving and I find that horses are more so. It made my day when he did that.
Anyway, RVHR and Pat deserve all the help in the world they can get. Money, supplies, help. All of it is needed at RVHR and my hope is that one day I can return to this haven for one of my favourite animals. My hope is that they get all the help needed to keep helping these majestic creatures.

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

All that they do. All the horses are so well taken care of and loved. Even the other animals on the farm are well tended and loved.

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

Get Pat, her husband and all the horses everything they need to keep running smoothly and helping so many animals survive.

Role:  Volunteer & I helped whereever there was a need.
