Hello! My name is Kona
I am up to date with shots.
Kona is another of the November Rescue Miracle mares. Kona, along with three other pregnant mares who had not been adopted into permanent home after their initial rescue, were taken in by AAE in late March 2012. Kona appears to be in good health. She is estimated to be about five years old and will likely foal sometime in the fall. Despite all the upheaval and changes in her life during the past 6 months, Kona has a gentle demeanor and a curious eye. She is sweet and will come around quickly with consistent handling. She will make a nice project horse for someone wanting to train their own mount and develop that special lifetime relationship that comes from the love and gratitude of a rescued horse.

Rescue Group Info...
All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a 100% volunteer-based, not-for-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.
AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-bound horses. Our passion for horses and disdain for the reality of slaughter, neglect and abuse prompted our formation. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. We wanted to make a difference.
“By saving the life of one horse, we may not be changing the world, but we are changing the world for that one horse.” Author unknown.
Our main facility is located in El Dorado Hills, California on the Digiorno family ranchette, a 14.3 acre property with a 7-stall barn, a hay/storage barn, paddock areas, and a large pasture area with a seasonal creek. In addition to the horses, there are resident goats, sheep, and chickens, as well as dogs (Bouvier Des Flandres) and cats.
AAE is not open to the public; HOWEVER, visits to meet the horses and see the facility can be scheduled by appointment. Please call or email for further information.
AAE prefers you take your time in choosing your horse. You are encouraged to visit the rescue (by appointment only) to spend adequate time interacting with a horse before making a decision, as it is important to assure an appropriate match. AAE has an adoption process that includes an application process, an adoption agreement, and payment of an adoption fee.
Adoption fees are based on a multitude of factors including the horses’s age, type, and health status, as well as training and experience. Adoption fees are one of AAE’s primary sources of funds for recouping some of the rescue and maintainance costs associated with our horses. Adoption fees are returned entirely to the program and used for supporting costs associated with ongoing care of existing horses and future rescue efforts.
All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is committed to saving and improving the lives of horses that fall victim to inhumane circumstances, most notably, horses that are abused, neglected, or slaughter-bound. AAE’s goal is to rescue and rehabilitate these horses and find them forever homes. When resources are available, AAE endeavors to provide public education and awareness programs for various equine welfare issues.
AAE’s program is 100% volunteer. We do not have paid staff. We expect our administrative costs to be a very small percentage of our overall budget. Administrative costs include insurance, postage, paper, copying, internet/website fees, and similar. As a result, we strive maximize every dollar of your tax-deductible donation to go directly to horse care and rescue (feed, veterinary care, farrier, auction recovery costs, transportation, equipment, supplies, and other similar expenses).
