Counsel to Saddlebred Rescue, Inc.
We serve as outside general counsel for a non-profit 501(c)(3) horse rescue based in New Jersey. Saddlebred Rescue purchases horses from auctions and sales where they are at risk for slaughter, rehabilitates any health concerns and uses a professional trainer to evaluate the horses, determine their level of training and suitability and place them into an appropriate home. Our work for Saddlebred Rescue includes handling corporate compliance, insurance and fundraising issues, drafting and guiding policies on social media use and revising adoption contracts and releases. We also assisted Saddlebred Rescue throughout the application process to become “Verified” by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS).
