We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization verified with Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). We service Sumter, Citrus, Hillsborough and Polk County Forida.
Our mission is to provide care to those equine's that have been abused, neglected and abandoned. Our goal is once all medical and emotional needs are met, we then begin the process of finding their new forever human. 2012 our ending number was 54 horses that came through our facility and were successfully adopted and in their forever homes. There is a huge need for equine rescues, due to the economy and lack of knowledge of some horse owners there is a increase of starvation and neglect cases.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our location is not public as we work with multiple law enforcement agencies on seizure cases and fear the safety of the horses. Visitation is by appointment
Our Adoption Process:
There is a adoption application required to be filled out by any prospective adopter. We also request the adopter come out and visit/handle the potential horse a minimum of 4 visits. A home visit will be performed prior to adoption being completed. Our adoption fees vary and all horses go on contract.
Why should you adopt?
horses can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a horse for sale or finding a horse breeder, adopting a horse from
an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a horse to your family.
Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for
a horse. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or
attention your horse needs, and many other important things about how to
house and care for a horse. There are different types of horses
including Andalusian, Appaloosa, Appendix, Arabian, Belgian, Clydesdale, Curly Horse, Donkey/Mule/Burro/Hinny, Draft, Friesian, Gaited, Grade, Gypsy Vanner, Haflinger, Lipizzaner, Miniature, Missouri Foxtrotter, Morgan, Mustang, Norwegian Fjord, Paint/Pinto, Palomino, Paso Fino, Percheron, Peruvian Paso, Pony - Chincoteague, Pony - Connemara, Pony - Dales, Pony - Dartmoor, Pony - Fell, Pony - New Forest, Pony - Other, Pony - Shetland, Pony - Welsh, Pony - of America, Quarterhorse, Rocky Mountain, Saddlebred, Standardbred, Tennessee Walking Horse, Thoroughbred, Trakhener, and Warmblood.
Pet adoption saves lives. Adopt a pet and you'll have a friend for life! Please consider a rescue pet before you buy a pet from a breeder or pet store. Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
