Through various educational programs, LPR creates community awareness about neglected, mistreated, and slaughter-bound horses, donkeys and farm animals. LPR then explains programs that are available to them, including rehabbing and re-homing. We educate local organizations on all aspects of equine care and continue to look for opportunities to educate the community at local schools and libraries throughout the community with our outreach program.
“Laughing Pony Rescue rescued me…”
“I had zero horse experience 8 months ago when I began volunteering at Laughing Pony Rescue (LPR) and over these past months Celia (the horse & donkey whisperer) and the incredible volunteers have taught me so much. I feel I am a valued part of the LPR family. Aside from learning so much, I am in awe of all the good that occurs on the ranch. From our educational programs teaching children about horses to the groups of special needs students we host three times a week to help us on the ranch, LPR is so much more than just a horse and donkey rescue. LPR represents the best of our community and Celia is the person who holds it all together. Her dedication to the care, health and rehabilitation of our horses and donkeys is unparalleled, she dedicates 7 days a week, all day, to these animals and putting the needs of LPR above her own. I feel incredibly grateful I found LPR and have been given a chance to thrive, just like our rescues. Thank you Celia.”
