Our mission focuses on using a network of fosters, volunteers and sponsors to rescue horses seized by or surrendered to the Animal Control agencies of Clark County, Nevada. These include Clark County Animal Control as well as the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, and North Las Vegas Animal Control offices. L.E.A.N. has been the last hope for many horses and donkeys with no place left to go.
All Vegas Horses utilizes its L.E.A.N. program (Local Equine Assistance Network) to take in horses seized by or surrendered to local Animal Control agencies. These horses, donkeys and burros receive medical and rehabilitative care in the homes of our approved fosters until such time as they are adopted. A rigid screening process of both fosters and adopters is conducted to ensure we do our best to match horse and home appropriately. 100% volunteer 501c3 organization. We do not take horses in from private parties however we offer owners network help to find new homes for their horses.
Our Adoption Process:
All our horses are kept in private foster, so arrangements must be made to meet a LEAN horse. We require an adoption application be completed first to review and discuss with you before setting an appointment with a foster home. We carefully screen prospective new homes to ensure the horse and future owner/rider are suitable for each other. Barn inspection, vet and farrier reference are required. Adoption fees vary according to the horse's condition. For more information, visit http://www.leanhorses.org/horse-adoption-application/
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.
