We serve many states including Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Massachusettes, Florida, Ohio, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We have adopted ponies out to these states and also Alabama and Illinois,
We are the Chincoteague Pony Rescue. We save Chincoteague Ponies from auctions, kill lots and meat brokers to prevent the ponies from going to slaughter. We also take any age pony from birth to aged in neglected, starving, abused or abandoned situations. After the ponies get to the rescue, we have them vet checked and treated for any illness or injury. We offer rehab for starving and abused ponies. We then adopt out the ponies to forever, loving homes.
Come Meet our Pets:
We are located on Maryland's Eastern Shore, 45 minutes from Annapolis and 30 minutes from Dover, Delaware. We have two Open House events per year and attend dozens of off-farm events to promote the ponies and support our community, county and state. We welcome visitors any time by appointment only.
Our Adoption Process:
Our base adoption fee is $600.00. The only additional fees we add are above the normal veterinary fees, transport and gelding.
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.
