My story

Maggie is a 15 hand Tennessee Walking Horse mare with great ground manners. She enjoys being petted and groomed.

Maggie's ideal person would be someone who loves to groom and spend time with a horse without an interest in riding, as she is not sound enough for riding.

Maggie came to us in summer of 2017 with a history of no hoof care for years and severe lameness for two years. She was very painful in all four feet, but especially her right front leg. She has since been examined by our regular vet and multiple veterinary specialists and a corrective hoof care specialist. She has been diagnosed with laminitis and ringbone (arthritis). These conditions are manageable though not curable. She had surgery on the nerves in her right front leg which has greatly improved her comfort level. She also developed an eye problem that required treatment by an ophthalmologist but it is resolved now with no further treatment needed. Maggie was also diagnosed with PPID, a common condition of middle aged to older horses, which causes lack of hair shedding and tendency to get laminitis if it’s untreated. She’s doing great with treatment.

Maggie takes daily Prascend for her PPID. She can't be out on really lush pasture or have high sugar treats but can have small amounts of low NSC diets (we feed her Triple Crown or Tribute) to hide her medicine in. She's an easy keeper who doesn't need much feed.

Maggie wears Soft Rider shoes on her front feet and stands well for the farrier to put these on every 6-8 weeks. She does need them to help her stay comfortable.

Maggie is in Townville, SC. She is current on her basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, Coggins. If Maggie is adopted by someone local, Crossroads Animal Hospital will provide discounted vet care for her for the rest of her life.

To be considered for adopting Maggie, go to www.crossroadsanimalrescue.org and fill out an adoption application. This doesn't obligate you to adopt, just gets you approved so that we can have you meet her. There is no adoption fee for Maggie - we just want her to have her own family to love her and care for her! Maggie’s adoption is a lifelong free lease; if you cannot keep caring for her, she must be returned to the rescue, not resold.



CARE provides one week free boarding until you can pick up your new horse. For more information, please email us at drkathyjordan@yahoo.com You can see our adoption applications and and more info about our rescue on our website, www.crossroadsanimalrescue.org. To make the process faster, please submit an adoption application through our website. This in no way obligates you - it simply gets you approved to meet our horses. You can also call us at 864-972-9994.

Additional adoption info

To adopt a pet from CARE, contact us and give us the information for our adoption application. This can be via phone or by going to our website, downloading the adoption application, and filling it out and emailing it to us. Our email is crossroadsanimalrescuesc@gmail.com
Once we receive your application, we will contact your vet references and review the application to approve you. This can usually be done on the same day you apply. Sending in the application does not obligate you to adopt.
You may meet our onsite pets prior to filling out the application if you prefer. For off site pets, we do request an approved application before scheduling a meeting.
To adopt after being approved, you simply pay the adoption fee and take your new family member home! You may adopt over the phone and then schedule to travel to meet your new pet. Adopting over the phone does require paying the adoption fee which is non-refundable if you change your mind about adopting.
Adoption fees vary depending on which pet you are interested in. These are often listed on the pet's profile but if not, feel free to email or call to ask.
We are available for phone calls weekdays 8a-5p and Saturdays 8a-Noon. You will reach the receptionist for Crossroads Animal Hospital which is the vet hospital who founded CARE. After working hours, we can be reached via email which is usually checked daily but may take up to 48 hours for a reply.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

Come to 8409 W. Oak Hwy, Seneca, SC anytime during business hours to meet our on-site pets. Our on-site pets are primarily puppies in the 4-6 month range and all ages of kittens and cats. To meet a pet in a foster home (this includes most young puppies as well as most adult dogs and all the horses), call or email to schedule a time. We will arrange to have the dogs/puppies brought to the clinic for you to meet or arrange for you to go to the foster home where the horse is staying.
We periodically have adoption events where we take some of our adoptable pets. Follow us on Facebook to learn of adoption events.

More about this rescue

CARE was founded to decrease euthanasias in Oconee County, SC. We primarily aquire animals from the local animal control. Most of these pets would be euthanized if we did not take them. Once in our program, they are adopted out through us or transfered to another rescue/shelter where they are not at risk for euthanasia.
We work primarily with puppies and kittens as this is the age group most likely to be euthanized at our local animal control.
Our equine rescues are primarily neglect cases from animal control. We design feeding programs for them to gain weight back safely, provide hoof care, and treat any medical problems. Once healthy enough to adopt, we find them loving homes.
