Twiggy's Info...

I am in need of an experienced adopter, rideable, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Twiggy's Story...
Twiggy (formerly known as "Baldie") is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. You can read more about their story on their page. She came in with horrible urine burns and a fungal infection that had taken most of the hair on her face and some spots on her body as well. She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind!

Twiggy's hair has grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. She will be available for adoption in November 2011. As of this writing (July 2011), she is learning to be halter-broke and how to pick up her feet.
July 2014: Twiggy has been started undersaddle and is doing quite well. She is standing 15 hands at 3 years old. Twiggy has been ridden indoors and outdoors and crosses water like a champ!

Stay up to date on Twiggy's progress on her updates page.

Baldie is looking for an adopter as well as a sponsor at $100/mo to sustain her until she's old enough to go to her forever home! Baldie's adoption fee is $500.

Adopters must be 21 or older, if you are under 18, please have a parent contact us as our adoption agreement is a legal agreement which must be made with an adult. We do welcome volunteers of any age, those under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information visit our website at to review our Adoption Requirements or fill out an Application.

About Society for Hooved Animal's Rescue and Emergency

About Our Rescue Group...

About Us

Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.

SHARE is a nonprofit humane society established in 2005 in the Champaign area. We have investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois.

At SHARE, our goal is to help equines trapped in situations of abuse and starvation. It is also our wish as well to educate horse owners on how to properly care for their horses.

The humane society offers to help educate owners on the proper daily care and maintenance; vetting and hoof care as well as nutrition and emergencies. The society also rescues severely neglected horses and provides rehabilitation services and placement through adoption.

This is not an easy task; many volunteers are needed in order to provide this care and support. There are many people who are not aware of hooved animals that are abused and neglected. SHARE would like to inform people about this

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Requirements

1. You must live in Illinois or close neighboring state.
2. Must own the property where the horse will be kept.
3. Must provide a letter of recommendation from your veterinarian and one from your farrier if you are now a horse owner. If you do not have a farrier, a letter from another person will suffice.
4. You must visit the horse to see if you are a match with the particular horse you wish to adopt.
5. We will visit your facility to see the facility and your animals.
6. If you continue with the adoption, you will be required to pay an adoption fee which is set by the board of directors for each animal. We will continue to inspect the animal for two years.
7. If at any time the animal is not being properly cared for SHARE has the right to seize the animal.
8. You are NEVER allowed to sell the animal to slaughter. We ALWAYS have first right of refusal if you decide not to keep the animal.
9. You must keep the animal for at least two years or it reverts to SHARE.

Adoption Fees:

Adoption Fees vary from animal to animal depending on the skill sets of each individual horse, starting at about $450.00 dollars. Each individual animal will have the adoption fee posted on it's profile, or view our website!
