The Equamore Foundation in Oregon is Verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.
June 6, 2013 (Ashland, OR) – The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries, awarded Verified status to The Equamore Foundation as of December 15, 2011.
Verification means that Equamore meets the criteria of a true equine sanctuary/rescue and is providing humane and responsible care of the animals. To be awarded Verified status, an organization must meet GFAS’s rigorous and peer-reviewed animal care standards which are confirmed by a site visit and they must also adhere to a demanding set of ethical and operational principles.
“The Equamore Foundation is proud to be counted among the quality animal sanctuaries recognized by GFAS as operating with the highest ethical and operation standards,” said Linda Davis, Executive Director of the Equamore Foundation. “Verification from GFAS assures the public that Equamore Foundation provides quality care for unwanted, abused, abandoned, neglected and aged horses who have no other alternative for their care.” Davis continued, “Verification also gives credibility to our educational programs, which seek to increase awareness of the plight of abused and neglected animals and to enlist entire communities… For the Love of Horses!”
