Sophia is a gorgeous senior Arabian mare who was found emaciated and in desperate need of foot care.

This smart mare has been through a lot in her life, and wants to get to know you before she commits, but once that bond is made, she displays the love and loyalty this breed is famous for. Her foster Mom says her manners are impeccable in all circumstances. Please consider bringing this special mare home--you won't regret it!

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.
