Patch

18 yr old Paint Gelding, needs experienced rider, good with other horses, high in the herd

Patch is our fun loving guy who is looking for a long term new home. Patch is super sweet and has an in your pocket personality on the ground. He loves to know exactly what you are doing at all times and loves treats! We believe Patch was a schooling horse in the past and learned that a small amount of 'misbehaving' under saddle will get him exactly what he wants. We have had one of our volunteer riders on him and she has so much fun riding him and they love going out for trail rides with other riders. He is beautiful under saddle and certainly has had some type of show experience and would make a great horse for someone looking for a horse for someone who likes to be kept on their toes. Patch would love a rider who has the experience to not let him get away with his tricks and who wants a guy who loves to be with his people as much as possible. Patch's biggest trick is he likes to turn and head in the wrong direction when he is done with what you are doing. This is simply fixed by realigning him in the right direction and giving him the correct cues to move forward. He has been getting better with his issues since he has been ridden regularly and will improve even more with a consistent rider who loves to spend time with him.Please note we do not have a central kennel facility, all of our pets are located in foster homes. The first step in meeting one of our furry friends is to fill out an application on our website at <a href='www.rainbowrescues.org'>www.rainbowrescues.org</a>. A volunteer will be in contact with you in 1-2 business days to review your application and speak with you about the adoption process.

About Rainbow Rescues Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a non-profit 501(c)3 rescue based out of Massachusetts. We
are a team of loving volunteers who are attempting to make the world better one pet
adoption at a time. All of our animals are placed in foster homes. We do
not keep any of our animals at a central
location. We are committed to finding the right home for our rescued animals and
educating the public on animal welfare and animal issues.

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a volunteer run agency created to help find homes for
surrendered, abandoned, abused, homeless, unwanted or neglected animals. We
accept all animals except for large livestock, though we will provide referral services for
livestock surrenders. Each animal surrendered to our agency is evaluated for health and
temperament issues, vaccinated, and altered. We charge a small adoption donation for
our animals which helps to cover the medical treatment for the animals and all of the
provisions needed for our foster homes. Please realize that no one affiliated with this
rescue receives any type of compensation except for a lot of good feelings. 100% of the
adoption donations and 100% of all other donations are used strictly for the animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Should you be interested in one of our furry friends the first step is to visit our website www.rainbowrescues.org and fill out an application. We will review your application, process your application, and contact you for any needed information. Once we have processed your application we will bring you to one of our locations for a meet and greet with your prospective new pet. If you and the pet are a fit we will then bring the pet to your home to conduct a home visit/inspection. If the pet is a fit with your family and lifestyle we will be turning over custody of the pet to you after the review and completion of our Adoption Agreement Document.

Rainbow Rescues Inc asks for a small
donation/fee for pet adoption. Most animals that are surrendered to us require some type of veterinary treatment whether it be shots, spay/neuter, or just an all around check-up. To off set these costs and to provide for future surrenders we must ask for a small adoption donation/fee for our animals.

Adult Dogs-$250 for dogs
Puppies (6 months and under)- $300
Senior Dogs (9 years and older)-$100
Cats-$100

All smaller animals will be determined at time of placement.
