Since 2007, Buckland Equine Rescue, Inc., or BERI, as we call it, has followed an unwavering mission. To rescue, rehabilitate, retrain and rehome as many viable equines as possible. And as of January 2013, our mission has resulted in the rescue of more then 80 horses who otherwise would be left to the horrors of abuse, neglect, slaughter or starvation.
Our organization is all volunteer, there are NO paid positions within the Rescue's staff. As a result, our resources go much farther then with many other charities, and after all, isn't that what folks like to see when they make a donation to an organization. Unlike some of the huge charities that see only 1% of donations make it to the 'boots-on-the-ground', BERI sees an astonishing 95+% of all donations go directly into the care and feeding of our horses.
The mission has been a success so far, The Buckland, the original rescue farm in Nicholas County, has been joined by AllieMac Acres in Garrard County, to become home to Buckland South. Two locations, much greater access and flexibility in the day-to-day operations.
