About Us - Equine Angels Rescue Sanctuary - E.A.R.S.


EARS was started because of many people's concern for foals and horses. Three years ago Frank Weller, one of EARS founders, was making a documentary film about the Premarin story. He adopted a Premarin foal named Toby and the next summer enlisted volunteers to do a fundraiser to benefit the foals. At the event, Richard Gere helped us by presenting the first Equine Angel Awards. The fundraiser helped rescue many foals and that fall. Mr. Weller placed 53 foals with the help of a group of volunteers.

This year, with the formation of EARS, volunteers have rescued 36 foals from Canada. EARS has just exhibited at the Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA at the Big E fairgrounds. Over 35,000 people attended and many of you were there. We have received numerous adoption and fostering requests. Site checks and adoptions have already begun.

Meanwhile, we look forward to hearing from you with your ideas. We are still trying to raise funds for the day to day expenses of the foals. We found that the mugs, pins and T-shirts sold really well at the Equine Affaire, you can see them on our Home Page. We want to “thank you”, on behalf of the foals, for your continuous support.

Now, we are formulating a response to the problem of 20,000 pregnant mares being put out of Premarin service. We are putting together a coalition of experts, influential citizens and public servants to devise a win-win-win solution to the mare’s plight. We believe that creative solutions exist to provide peaceful and even useful sanctuary for the mares and their foals. For example, we are investigating the use of BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land and Indian Reservations for the mares to live on or for training. Many other interesting ideas are on the table including starting prisoner programs, like the one that exists in Walkill, NY for thoroughbred retirement horses. We have asked Wyeth, the pharmaceutical company that makes Premarin, to join us in finding happy, win-win-win solutions. We hope that as a new rescue without a history of ill will towards Wyeth, they may see the wisdom in joining us.

As an organization we are trying to partner with children's charities to find ways for the rescue foals and mares to rescue children. The Pegasus Program, Green Chimneys, Make a Wish Foundation and several therapeutic riding programs are likely candidates. We know, from our experience, that the foals and mares rescue us. As Winston Churchill once said "Something about the outside of a horse is good for the inside off a man". We know that holds true for women and children too.

Thank you for visiting our web site and for your concern for the well being of foals and mares that you have not even met yet. We hope to introduce many of them to you and we invite you to return to meet them. Please contact us with your ideas, concerns and support for our rescue sanctuary. Once again on behalf of the foals and mares we thank you and we will be listening…………EARS
