Facts about Kona

  • Breed: Quarterhorse Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male

We have recently amended Kona's bio to explain that he is currently sponsorship only, as he has leg/feet issues which have not been resolved. Any help you can provide for vet bills would be greatly appreciated.

Kona is a very sweet senior (22 years old) Bay Quarter Horse Gelding who recently became a homeless horse. Kona's owner lost her home and could not afford to feed him, so Kona has gained weight nicely, and could still pack on a few more pounds. He is now on a good diet, had his feet trimmed, and has been wormed. He is sturdy, sound, healthy, trailers easily, and ties quietly.

Kona deserves a very good home, and here is why: Kona is about 15.2 hands tall, so he is mature and he is also not big and scary. He is very quiet and easy to ride. A wonderful "babysitter", Kona would be great for children, beginners, or even a first time horse owner.

Please tell anyone you know may be able to help donate towards Kona's ongoing vet care and who loves horses, about Kona. He deserves the best and is a sweet good-natured boy.

Please note: he is now getting furry winter coat and will be even more handsome when spring comes, or now, if he is frequently groomed and/or blanketed (although blanketed horses cannot have their blankets on during the daytime--night time only.)
We do home checks and there is a donation involved.

About The Nature Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Nature Network, Inc., is a non profit 501c3 federal tax exempt organization, publicly supported and existing entirely with the generous help of animal loving people. We rescue dogs, cats, horses, other domestic pets, birds, and wildlife, some on their last day of life from Los Angeles area pounds, and we work with local wildlife rescue organizations to save wildlife and birds (injured or orphaned). We love animals very much, and feel there can never be enough help for all animals in need, or enough loving homes or enough birth control for the domestic ones.

We are currently seeking grants, donors and sponsors to purchase the animal sanctuary and education center we have found for the Nature Network in the Valley area of Los Angeles.

We are preparing to again produce and host a previously award winning television show about the rescue and protection of domestic and wild animals and preservation of natural habitats.

More information to come soon. Our website, is currently under re-design, and will be up and active soon.

Please become a sponsor for one of our special needs animals--dogs, cats, horses, and more, or please help support The Nature Network's rescue work with a tax deductible contribution.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable pets are boarded at kennels, veterinarians, foster homes and our friends' and family's homes. We sometimes also take part in Best Friends and Animal Planet adoption events. We recommend calling us to discuss your adoption needs. If it sounds like you would be happy and the pet would be happy, we can arrange for everyone to meet.
See our organization's info about our plans to purchase our dream animal sanctuary and humane education center---but not without your help.

Our Adoption Process...

After speaking by telephone, and coming to see our pet (if qualified), we will visit your home. If qualified, we bring our pet for a two week trial period with an application and contract. The adoption donation for dogs is $200-$350, and a $50-$150 adoption donation for cats and other small pets.
