Facts about Crystal

  • Breed: Other/Unknown Mix
  • Color: Gray
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small
  • Sex: Female
Crystal is a sanctuary horse. Because of her health issues, she's not available for adoption.
Crystal is a sad little story. She came in with 3 other Caspian horses when her breeder lost her home. Crystal suffers from some dental problems as well as an undetermined autoimmune disorder (possibly from ingesting something poisonous at some point) and is in pitiful condition. The vet visits her every few weeks to draw blood and give her a steroid shot. She looks a little better than these intake photos, but not much. Her prognosis isn't so great so she'll be a sanctuary horse and stay at SHARE for as long as she can be kept comfortable.

We are looking for a sponsor to help out with Crystal's medical expenses.

More pictures of Crystal are available on her updates page.

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!
