The mission of Forever Amber Acres Animal Sanctuary ( www.foreveramber.org) is to provide purposeful rehabilitation, training, retirement aftercare and refuge for special needs horses and other animals to serve others. FAAAS is part of a national ad-hoc anti-slaughter rescue network that works with other individuals and organizations to advocate for animal welfare and humane treatment for equines and all animals. By identifying abusers and educating the public to the injustices befalling these animals, we seek a positive and permanent impact on the growing trend of animal exploitation and horse slaughter in the United States. Once rescued, we provide adoption and retirement options either on our premises or through our partner network. While our primary focus is horses, we do not discriminate against any animal or breed. All creatures in our care are treated humanely and with compassion.
Founded in 2008 by Michele Bolinger, FAAAS operated as a private, self-funded charity prior to obtaining 501-c3 status in 2014. We are an all-volunteer organization with 100% of revenue from all sources going directly to the care of our special needs animals and the maintenance of the facility they call "home." In addition to the rescues in permanent retirement the sanctuary we are pleased to report that in the past 12 months, our organization has assisted in the successful placement of 17 animals including a family of 6 llamas, 3 horses and 2 Golden Doodles to safe, permanent homes.
