Santiago's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.

Santiago's Story...
Santiago is a 2004 mustang gelding standing 15.1 hh. This handsome boy trailers, halter, leads, lunges, and is learning to stand for the farrier like a gentleman.

This little gelding was adopted from the Bureau of Land Management's Wild Horse and Burro Program, but is properly titled and looking for a new permanent home. Unfortunately none of his previous homes taught him anything, so he is eager to get started on learning.

Santiago has not been broke to ride, so he will need someone who is well versed in training green horses, or a patient, horse savvy person who can hire a trainer. He is friendly, smart and gets along well with other equines. He would love another horse to be friends with!

This horse is currently available for adoption, but is NOT being housed at the Whatcom Humane Society farm facility. She is being cared for at a private equine facility.

If you are interested in learning more about this horse or would like to set up a time for a meet and greet, please complete a Whatcom Humane Society equine/livestock adoption application and email it to: animalcontrolmgr@whatcomhumane.org. You may also fax your application to (360)733-4746 or drop it off at our Division Street shelter.

Equine/Livestock applications are available on our website at http://whatcomhumane.org/applications/. Please note on your application which horse(s) you are interested in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Santiago, a Bellingham Mustang was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mustang for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Mustang from a breeder in Bellingham.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bellingham already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bellingham breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mustang breeders who help with Mustang rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bellingham paves the way for another one to be saved.
