CN Advisory: High Concern

Equine Angels Rescue

135 Durango Lane Cabot, PA 16023

EIN: 27-2627447


On May 15, 2017, the IRS automatically revoked the federal tax exemption status of Equine Angels Rescue for "failure to file a Form 990-series return or notice for three consecutive years." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see the IRS register for tax-exempt organizations.

On April 3, 2017, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported on the operations of Equine Angels Rescue, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Founder of West Deer horse-rescue nonprofit set to plead guilty in federal case." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article.

  • On April 13, 2017, The Tribune-Review published an article titled, "Founder of Western Pa. horse rescue group pleads guilty to federal charges." For more information, please see The Tribune-Review article.

  • On November 3, 2017, The Butler Eagle published an article titled, "Equine Angels operator sentenced to prison." For more information, please see The Butler Eagle article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through external sources and websites. For more information on how or when we decide to publish a CN Advisory, please review our methodology.
