ABOUT US

We take in Farm Animals, mostly horses. They come from a wide range of situations. Owners have passed away, people can no longer afford there care. Some taken away by Sheriff Dept. Most are suffering in some way. Neglect and abuse, some have physical Trauma some Mental.

We work together with the Volunteers to Heal the animals Body and Mind. Find them good homes. Provide Volunteer opportunities.

It seems a lot of our volunteers are hurting in some way also. The animals seem to help them too.

We do our best with what we have, but your donations also help provide, Medical, Farrier, and Feed.

We are now PATH Members and Iowa Horse Counsel Members!

This is Speckles, after several weeks of full feed. He come in at a body score of 1!

We built him up!

This is Speckles now! Amanda Smith, one of our volunteers adopted him and has done a good job with him! He has come a long way!

To think the previous owner wanted to put him down because he was too far gone!

He is in his older teens.

From a throw away to a treasure!

Horses up for adoption! Please help find them homes!

Tony is being Adopted! By our new neighbor Faith!

She is going to let us use him for out Veterans Program when needed. Best thing is he will only be 2 miles away.

I have bonded with this horse and I waited till we found the perfect owner for him.


He is a quarter horse. No papers

He is 16 and around 15.2 hands. He is a wonderful horse. Awesome trail horse.

We think he was in Reining training when he injured his stifle.

They did surgery. But didn't come back the way the owners wanted.

He sat in pasture for 12 years with nothing done with him.

We did some ground work and started riding him.

He is not for a beginner!

He will test a beginner and do nothing for them. 

If you know how to ride, neck rein, leg pressure and have confidence, he may be the guy for you. Fun to ride.

His left rear leg does crossfire, so he would not make a show horse.

I have shown him and told we would have won the class if he didn't crossfire.

Tony's adoption fee is a firm 800.00. We enjoy riding him so if he doesn't get adopted, he has a home here.

MEET THE TEAM

Rodney Reinertson

Rodney was a childhood friend of mine. He went into the Military for 11 year and got married and was gone for about 34 years.

Rodney grew up with horses and cattle. He trained horses and always had a kind way about him.

Last year Rodney and I reconnected. He moved in with me. He has a passion for the animals. He jumped right in to the rescue. He has spent a lot of his own money on feeding the rescue animals. He also is getting back into training and working with the animals.

He has a huge heart and I can't thank him enough for jumping in with booth feet.

He will also be a huge asset helping the Veterans that come here. He has PTSD from the wars. He will be able to relate with the Veterans and show them how the animals can help them.

Carrie Aldrich

Founder

I am a graduate from Ellsworth Equine Program. I have a AS degree. I have worked with animals and the disabled most of my life. I founded Greenbelt Humane Society, right out of college. I ran it for 10 years. It is still going today.

I Started Lucky Star Rescue in 2015. I saw a need for a farm animal rescue. while we take in mostly horses, other Farm animals are welcome.

I also saw a need for a place Volunteers can come and work with the animals.

We are working on starting a program for Veterans and people with PTSD.

Animals do a wonderful Job at helping People who need some unconditional love.

I am a Rape survivor and have multiple physical and emotional issues. I have worked hard to make each day count. Helping others helps me.

Volunteers!


Lucky Star 

Rescue is Lucky to have great Volunteers!

This is Mckayla, Angie and Isaac.

They volunteer regularly.

This is at our Tip night at Pizza Ranch in Iowa Falls.

We do a fundraiser there once a month. At least we try to.

We have fun waiting on tables and telling people about the Rescue. The Rescue gets to keep the tips and Pizza Ranch donates 10% of that nights profit.

So thank you Pizza Ranch and all of our wonderful Volunteers!

TESTIMONIALS

 I recently adopted a horse from lucky star. He came in excellent condition and it was obvious that he had been well cared for and had lots of attention. Carrie and her team had worked with him a lot on manners, ground work, and even under saddle work. He is a very special horse who was given a second chance thanks to Lucky Star.

Melinda Baszczynski

Lucky Star Rescue is an amazing place. All the animals are happy healthy and well cared for!! I saw Chopper and fell in love and went to meet him. Carrie was very well informed on pigs and and you could tell he was a happy pig as well as the other two that were there, Pearl, and Slick Willie. I wish I could have adopted them all but i know she will find the perfect place for them. Carrie is a very loving and caring lady. She puts a lot of sweat tears and love into caring for those animals. The animals that come into Lucky Star Rescue are indeed lucky!!! Thank you Carrie for being the amazing, loving and selfless person that you are. You sacrifice so much so that these unwanted, neglected animals get a chance at a happy life!!
