This is an incredible group of dedicated, loving and passionate volunteers. Over the years of my association volunteering (including a move from Huntington Beach to Chino Hills) I have been provided the opportunity to work as much or as little as I could handle at the time. This organization truly appreciates everyone's efforts and acknowledges the gifts of time, effort, money, or simply carrots. It has been my pleasure to surround myself with this terrific team and highly recommend getting involved with the Red Bucket. There are so many opportunities to help us help the horses -- from fundraising, to mucking stalls, to feeding, to administrative support, to painting, and recycling. With everything going back to the beautiful creatures who have been so wronged by mankind. I can't say enough about the sense of gratitude I have to have found this wonderful organization.

I have been volunteering with Red Bucket since their inception 5 years ago. They are a class act, hands down the best run non-profit animal rescue group I've ever come across. The facility is immaculate and all of the horses receive much love and attention.

I love my volunteer time each week at Red Bucket Equine Rescue! The ranch is beautiful, clean and so well-maintained that it looks like a show barn instead of a rescue facility. The horses here are treated with love, patience and dignity. Their lives are completely turned around, from being starving throwaways destined for slaughter, to being cherished forever friends with new, loving families! I have never been involved with such meaningful and rewarding work. The Red Bucket family of volunteers has become my family. We treat our rescued horses, and each other, with kindness and respect.

I have volunteered for this organization for almost 2 years now, and I have to say, it is one of the best organizations I have ever volunteered for!I started out with little to no horse experience and got started in fundraising, washing buckets, ect. Anything I could do to help. Everyone one here treats you like family and could not be kinder. The Ranch is beautifully kept and the horses are treated with the best care and love. Red Bucket has become my home away from home and my second family, and I would highly recommend this rescue!

I have volunteered for Red Bucket for two years. I find Red Bucket to be held in the highest esteem by anyone who values horses. They have the highest regard for what we do in saving and rehabilitating horses for their future "forever" homes. I have been fortunate enough to provide forever horses for two of these wonderful horses and they have changed my life. Red Bucket provides a family atmosphere and volunteers understand the mission we have for our horses. As volunteers we work hard to provide a wonderful and clean atmosphere for the horses we love and adorn.

I have volunteered with Red Bucket Equine Rescue for over year and a half and have been incredibly impressed. This is the most professional, well-run organization I have ever been involved with, whether nonprofit or for-profit. The level of compassion and dedication, and the depth of knowledge cannot be matched. In addition, I have never encountered an organization in which volunteers work together as a team as they do at Red Bucket. It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of this organization.

My daughter and I have volunteered for Red Bucket almost a year. It is the most professional non-profit organization I have ever volunteered for. Not only are the horses cared for with the upmost respect they deserve but the volunteers are like family. They work together as teams and the ultimate goal of every members is the care of the horses.

I have been volunteering at Red Bucket for the past 3 years. The ranch has the highest standards for our horses. Saving, rehabilitating and finding forever homes for these beautiful creatures is very rewarding. The volunteers are upbeat, polite, enthusiastic, proud, and committed to always doing what is in the best interest of the horses. There is a meaningful role for anyone who wants to volunteer and join the Red Bucket family in helping us to help the horses.
