Adoption is in many way the end and the beginning for rescued equines. The end of waiting for a permanent family environment. The beginning of forever. Our adoption program has rigid expectations of potential adopters for obvious reasons.

Committing to continued donations on a schedule is a dramatic way to make a difference. Your sponsorship to an equine or the organization, gives a sigh of relief from constricting financial burdens of day to day expenditures. Making a pledge to sponsor is an easy process.

See something Say something
While neglect of any animal is a concern of this organization, the laws in the state do not offer anyone other than the individual county authorities to legally investigate, warrant, and seize from any privately owned land. If any act of abuse is currently in the process of happening you should contact 911. All other advisements of abuse should be reported to the local county Sheriff department for investigation.
