Our mission at Central New England Equine Rescue,Inc is to rescue and rehabilitate horses, restoring them to their natural health and good spirit. Educating our youth and volunteers to provide a safe environment for healing. We have implemented an educational program on the proper care of horses to aid in the prevention of abuse and cruelty in the Northeast.

How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We have been able to add more foster care to our list of accomplishments. Horses that we could not physically house are now well cared for in approved foster care homes. In these times of economic hardship for Americans, our services are in great demand. Horses are being given up by families that can no longer care for them.Horses are still being sent to slaughter. Our ability to take in more horses and provide them with shelter, food and veterinary care is our primary goal. We have budgeted and we are financially stable at this time. We would like to see our facility grow to house more horses in one central location, this is our long term goal.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
