I don't have a horse, but was trying to get into volunteering with a rescue and also looking into lessons. I found a rescue, unfortunately, it wasn't what it appeared to be, ended up in a pretty eye-opening experience, and now I need help.
I don't want to get into too much detail because the whole thing ended up in a police report and it's pretty serious...by the way, this has nothing to do with the way horses were being treated, in fact, in my time there, I never met a horse.
My question is this....this rescue is a 501c3 rescue, supposed to be reputatable and all that, but it's obviously not. According to the police after my report, there is a lot more to this story... Who can/should I contact to talk about what happened at this rescue? Since they are a member of the Equine Voice Welfare Alliance, I contacted them, but where else is good to go?
Please understand that this is a very serious problem, and I would never do this if I didn't feel it was the right thing to do.
If you are a member of something I can contact, or think you may be albe to help me, please PM me and I will tell you what happened. Because I'm a little afraid that these people may retaliate, please let me know who you are with.
Thank you for all your help, and to anyone looking into volunteering or something similar....PLEASE be careful out there....I found this out the hard way today.
