Welcome to Beauty's Haven ...
President, and Beauty
... and thank you for your interest! We
are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in the State of
Florida. Please take time to browse through our website and
get demo to know us and the horses here.
Our purpose is to help as many equine friends as
possible when they are in need. We network with other rescue
organizations and individuals, and we work to educate others about
horse slaughter in an effort to make it illegal -- not just in the
United States but also in Canada, Mexico, and other
countries. To learn more about our mission, please
follow this link to a recent article in Ocala Style magazine.
arrive at our rescue come from auctions and kill buyers; some
are surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them, and
some are seized by authorities. We try to help horses
that are desperately in need of a safe place to go before they
end up in the slaughter pipeline and are inhumanely trucked
off across the borders to Canada or Mexico, where they are
slaughtered for human consumption. Horses that end up at
auctions often wind up in the hands of kill buyers.
Sometimes we pay to get a horse out of a desperate situation,
which shouldn't be the case. But sometimes time is of
the essence in saving a horse's life.
Once a horse is here, then come the costs of rehabilitation,
training, proper feed, and care. Expenses include
initial and follow-on vet exams, farrier work, vaccines,
wormers, supplements, dental care, grain, feed, and other
necessities, which are costly. Some horses with special
needs will live out their days here.
Please take time to look through our website to learn about us
and our mission. There are stories here that will make
you cry, and some will make you smile. Rescue work is a
mental, physical, and financial rollercoaster ride; but the
rewards are so great.
Horses ask for so little but give so much -- please help us to
help them -- we can't do what we do without support from
others. We need assistance from caring individuals, groups, and
businesses. No amount is too small -- please give today to
help the horses by visiting our Donate
page. All donations are tax-deductible.
Us Continue to Make Miracles Happen
In August 2009, we got a call about a baby that needed help -- he wasn't very far from the
rescue. When we went over to check him out, I looked into the stall, and
right then I knew there was no leaving this baby behind. He looked
so small and alone, huddled in a corner. He had what appeared to be cataracts in both eyes. He had
diarrhea. He was thin, wormy, and had places where he was missing his coat.
His backend was weak, and he was wearing unhealthy baby fur.
I hugged him and started scratching his neck and started humming to
him. He swayed to the left, to the right, to the left, back and
forth to the scratches and humming. I love to listen to Ray
Charles; and this little boy, swaying back and forth to the humming,
reminded me of him -- the name Baby Ray came to me. So, meet Baby
