Facts about Nemo

  • Breed: Quarterhorse Mix
  • Color: Chestnut/Sorrel
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male
Nemo is a horse who has been in search of his person. This 7-year-old QH or Paint gelding has had a bit of a rough road to this point, but he is now in training with someone who understands and loves him and he has simply blossomed. He’s going nicely under saddle, and would make an excellent trail riding companion. It does seem he would do best with shoes, and with someone who is willing to keep up with chiropractic and other types of bodywork. He has waited so long to “come home,” could he come home with you? Nemo is looking for a lifetime home with someone who will commit to him through thick and thin. He has waited a long, long time for a person who will love him. Could you be that person?

$150 adoption fee to approved permanent home.

About Sonoma County Change Program

About Our Rescue Group...

The CHANGE Program was formed in 2007 to support local law enforcement in managing equine humane cases including neglect, abuse, abandonment and relinquishment. CHANGE is a state and federally accredited non-profit organization. It is not a county agency and is supported entirely by private donations.

CHANGE provides 24/7 emergency transportation and foster care to horses in the custody of local law enforcement. All horses in the program receive complete veterinary care, hoof care, specialized nutritional support, and their own set of care supplies made possible by generous community donations to the CHANGE Tack and Supply Donation Program. Once rehabilitated, horses are then adopted by permanent loving families

CHANGE also serves the community through education and outreach events such as law enforcement training seminars on equine-related subjects and low-cost castration clinics for the public. CHANGE also has served as a subsidiary in several courtroom cases by providing expert witness testimony. Some of the cases set legal precedent and garnered national media attention.
