Overview


Mission Statement

Hanaeleh rescues horses who are slaughterbound, neglected or in need of a loving home. Often these horses are abused, neglected, untrained or just drew a bad lot in life– whatever the reason, Hanaeleh is dedicated to helping rescue these horses and rehabilitate them. Once the horse is healthy, our organization will work to adopt the horses out to a new, forever home. If the horse is unable to be adopted out, Hanaeleh is dedicated to providing sanctuary for those horses for the remainder of their lives.

Background Statement

Hanaeleh was created after its founder purchased an untrained Arabian horse from a feedlot, two days before the horse was scheduled to be shipped to the slaughterhouse.  This purchase started the realization that horse slaughter was still alive– at the time of Cleo’s purchase, 11 slaughterhouses operated in the United States. The founder helped to create Hanaeleh both as a horse rescue and a voice against horse slaughter.

Impact Statement

Hanaeleh hopes to reduce the number of horses that are sent to the slaughterhouse via auction or through direct sales to killer buyers, and offers a sanctuary where people can donate their horses to instead of abandoning them, starving them, or needlessly euthanizing them.

Needs Statement

Hay and grain (approx. $2,000/month)
Farrier ($500 every 6 weeks)
Veterinary Care ($400 per horse for vaccinations/teeth float)
Supplements (vitamins, electrolytes, psyllium, probiotics, joint supplements)- approx. $900/mo
 
We also need donations for: feed buckets, storage sheds for hay and supplies, shelters for the horses, pipe corrals to build more stalls, stall mats, railroad ties, rice hulls, shavings, rakes, shovels, halters, fly masks (various sizes).

Board Chair Statement

Hanaeleh is located in Orange County, which is one of the most expensive places in the United States to live.  There are hundreds of horses in this area, but it is very difficult to find land, and even more expensive. We were lucky to find two acres for least several years ago, and spent a lot of time, money and effort to put together a working facility.  It was important to us, however, to find a place where we can keep the horses in a safe setting for as long as they need to be rehabilitated.  
 
Our horses live in large stalls and paddocks, sometimes with a buddy, and are exercised daily. The horses who are able to be ridden are trained, and when they are safe and healthy they are put up for adoption. We have a first right-of-refusal on all of our horses, although we try to ensure that our horses and their new homes are a good fit. If anything happens, however, we always will take the horse back; our primary consideration is to ensure the safety of our horses.  
 
Hanaeleh has, on average, about 15-20 individuals who volunteer on a regular basis.  We have work days every other month, and invite anyone who wishes to come to help out, and we also offer open houses every month, so the public can see the work we do with the horses. For those individuals who wish to work with the horses directly, we offer a program where they are trained to work one-on-one with other volunteers and can learn how we groom and exercise the horses.
 
Hanaeleh is a 100% volunteer-run organization. I am a teacher, and sometimes it is difficult to work all day and then come down and work with the horses as well, but the horses need daily care. It is incredible to see so many people who are so dedicated to helping these horses. We all spend hundreds of hours working with the horses, updating the website, social media, making phone calls, etc.  The fact that our facility is so well run and we have so many positive comments really highlights the amount of work that so many people have put into Hanaeleh.

Programs


Horse Rehabilitation

Hanaeleh is dedicated to providing the best care possible for any horse it takes in.  This means that each horse has a diet tailored to its needs, and the diet is updated on a bi-weekly basis if necessary.  Feed and nutritional supplements, as well as veterinary care, is where Hanaeleh spends most of its budget.
Budget  $26,000.00
Category  Animal-Related
Population Served General Public/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Horses who are near starvation gain between 75-100 pounds per month until they are back to their target weight.
Program Long-Term Success  Hanaeleh has been very successful at being able to bring horses back from the brink of starvation as well as increase the mobility of its older horses.
Program Success Monitored By  Board members, volunteers
Examples of Program Success  Charley was donated to Hanaeleh when his owners felt that he was going to die under their care.  In six months he had gained approximately 500 pounds, was able to move freely in the arena, and had a healthy coat.

Adults with Disabilities

Adults with disabilities come out to Hanaeleh to work with the horses as a way of developing their motor skills and other emotional benefits the horses provide.
Budget  $500.00
Category  Mental Health, Substance Abuse Animal-Assisted Therapy
Population Served Disabled, General or Disability Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Individuals work through their fear of the horses and are able to groom the horses.
Program Long-Term Success  The individuals who come out to Hanaeleh enjoy their time and wish to go out on a daily, if not weekly, basis.  They become more outgoing and comfortable.
Program Success Monitored By  President, job coaches, program supervisor
Examples of Program Success  One individual who has been coming out to Hanaeleh since 2010 has become more vocal and has taken a pride in the facility and the horses.  His self-esteem is higher and he is now beginning to look for a job.

Veteran's EAC Program

The EAC program was started in order to help veterans who are assimilating back into civilian life, who are working on leadership skills, who suffer from PTSD, or who are working on personal goals. EAC allows individuals to make breakthroughs much more quickly than traditional methods. Horses do not judge individuals, and they have no agenda. They are large, strong animals, but they are also prey animals, and trust with a horse must be earned; they are brutally honest, and mirror our body language and act accordingly.

After sessions with the horses, individuals are encouraged to transfer the lessons they’ve learned from the horses to their personal and professional lives. In the three sessions we held last year, the veterans noted that they found the EAC program advantageous helping them identify and working through personal issues that had previously been preventing them from being successful.

All horses used in the EAC program have been rescued and rehabilitated by Hanaeleh. We have found that the program helps both the horses and the veterans alike.
Budget  $12,000
Category  Mental Health, Substance Abuse Programs, General/other Specialized Therapy
Population Served Adults Military/Veterans
Program Short-Term Success  Veterans who have gone through the program have asked to return for future sessions and have reported back that they are working on their goals.
Program Long-Term Success  Veterans who have gone through the program have noted that they are more focused on long-term goals and are better able to communicate with people. They find that they are more cognizant of how their body language and their approach to relationships is as important as what they actually say. The program also focuses on leadership skills and how they can move past personal hardships they are currently experiencing, or previous issues that are preventing them from moving forward in their lives.
Program Success Monitored By 
Hanaeleh President, Elizabeth Zarkos, Ph.D.
EAC Program Coordinator, Kelley White.
Other EAC assistants as necessary
Examples of Program Success  One of our veterans had been experiencing some difficulties with the IRS, and he was also having some communication problems at home. After going through the program, he stopped talking about the negative aspects he had been having with the IRS, and instead started focusing on long-term solutions and goals. His family also noted that he seemed happier and many of the communication problems were being worked through effectively.

CEO Comments

The two most difficult aspects of having the rescue in Orange County is having enough space to keep the horses, and raising enough money to afford the horses in  such a high-rent area. Even though it is expensive, however, there are thousands of horses in Orange County, and there is a need for a horse rescue in this area. The majority of the horses who come into our rescue are from our local area (within 15 miles).
