Sierra's Info...

I am a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

Sierra's Story...
In July 2011, SHARE went back to the nurse mare farm with a local family who were willing to take on some nurse mares home to raise themselves. There we met Sierra, and the owner said she was going to go straight to slaughter because she was mean. Sierra bore the evidence--injuries on her forehead where she had been hit with a 2x4.

In reality, Sierra is sweet and a little bit shy. She really has had no training, so she has no manners, but she's definitely not a mean horse. She's pregnant and will be having a March 2012 baby. Most likely she will stay at SHARE to have her foal and then they'll be adopted out separately, but she is available for adoption now to a well-prepared home who can get her through foaling and raise her baby OK. A qualified foster homes would be appreciated too! Contact us if you think you can help. Her adoption fee is $500.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dewey 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 Dewey 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 Quarterhorse breeders who help with Quarterhorse rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dewey paves the way for another one to be saved.
