Rescue process

Our process of rehabilitation is focused on quality.  All new intakes receive an initial evaluation from our veterinarian.  The care process is identified, and human social interaction begins. Throughout rehabilitation, evaluations are made to determine if regimented training is capable and needed to advance adoptability.  Once medical, nutritional & social rehabilitation has met our required conditions, an equine is considered “Available” for adoption.  Otherwise, an equine will be considered “Pending” or “Rehabilitating.”  Even if training habilitation or rehabilitation is pending, we will consider adoption requests.  If any equine is committed to training but has not yet been, this will be completed first before any adoption process will be approved.  All equines classified sanctuary are still available for adoption but understand the scrutiny during the adoption process will be very high as all sanctuary equines are NEVER to be ridden or worked on any level.

We have a range of equines and many different capacities.  As our mission states… we aim to find forever homes for all rescued equines but do very much realize that most people are not looking for non-ridable or old aged equines.  With this in mind, we also provide these souls the dignity to exist in an environment of the love and compassion deserved to them.  Ultimately, if the right individual comes along and convinces us of their undying love for one of our sanctuary class equines, we would consider an adoption request.
