*Consumer Comment: Manes and Tails Organization is Not a Fake Rescue

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

While Manes and tails asks for donations to support their rescue - Manes and Tails Organization is the only horse rescue in the entire United States that free leases their horses. (This horse rescue give up all expense and adopter of horse supplies all expenses themselves including food, shelter and vet care. M & T often places unhealthy horses with people that do not know the extent of their true conditions. Healthy horses are placed with Nash's friends in NJ, not throughout the U.S.)

As noted on their website in a apparent sick joke attempt by their founder and CEO - "The rescue is named 'Manes and Tails as all that is left of Bullwinkle and Sahlih is a bit of mane and tail from each." On the morning of August 17, 2000 when they escaped their pasture, Bullie was hit by a Ford F250 truck and was killed instantly. Sahlih was not so lucky. He was run over by a Ford Escort and was alive but beyond recovery. Both horses were free leased. Manes & Tails Organization was incorporated in June of 2004.

No government agency or honorable humane groups really reconize them.

Board of Directors who give no credability to any organization seeking public funds include the following -

Ellen-Cathryn Nash, Founder /CEO - Fired from her employment, she then statarted up her alledged horse rescue company.

Adding more major concern is the questionable director friends she appointed including:

Manes and tails received N.J.S.A. 52:2-4 Violation of illegal use of State seal on Newsletter warning.

Charity Navigator says that 7 out of 10 charities spend at least 75% of their budget on the charitable services they provide. Grouping all charities together the median charity's expenditures are as follows:
Charitable Services: 81%
Administration Expenses: 10.5%
Fundraising Expenses: 7.5%

Manes and tails budget comes to the following outragious precentage: of less than 3% for program services and 97% for administrative costs. This so called not for profit organization and listed directors should be investigated by government agencies, besides being a big disgrace to valid animal rescue organizations.

Program Services - $ 479
Administrative Costs $ 16, 000
Payments to Affiliates $ 0
Total Expenses $ 16, 749

Assets & Liabilities
Total Assets $ 2, 000

Manes and Tails Organization is Not a Fake Rescue

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

The Manes and Tails Organization never free leases sick horses. These horses are kept at the rescue until they are fully rehabilitated. The horses are free leased so they may always have a home.

Nash was never fired from any job, ever.

The Rescue is recognized by 'Great Non Profits' as well as 'Guidestar' and the EWA  of which they are founding members.

We fail to see what Paul Sorvino has to do with this report; his daughter Amanda has rescued all manner of animals including Lions and Tigers and many Wolves and Wolf Hybrids. The sins of the Father should not effect the reputation of the daughter.

We do not know who Howard Brodsky is however we doubt that he raises any funds for the charity.

The author of the report states the address in 'Holbroken' so we know it is a lie. This seems to be someone whom is annoyed as they were not a suitable candidate to free lease a horse. We know that Manes and Tails Organization screens their potential lessees very carefully, additionally they will always take a horse back.

In conclusion, Manes and Tails Organization is recognized by 'Great NonProfits', 'Guidstar' and was a founding member of the 'Equine Welfare Alliance.' That is pretty solid evidence that this rescue is valid, not fake and rips off no one. The issue with the use of the NJ State Seal was ludicrous and nothing ever happened. NJ Ag is as Pro Slaughter as they come. NJ is not a 'horse friendly' state.
