My story

Vanpelt arrived at our facility in August 2019 after being rescued from auction. He was reportedly a cart horse and had four shoes on when he arrived. We believe he is either a Standardbred or Dutch Harness Horse. He is in his teens and stands around 16 hands.
Vanpelt has been out of work for the last year since he has been in a foster home as a companion. He is green under saddle, and previously could walk/trot but did have a buck. He will need an experienced rider to bring him back into a consistent program but would do best as a companion. Vanpelt has a fantastic puppy dog personality, with an easy going attitude stands tied to be groomed/bathed. Vanpelt would do best with no mares and in a gelding only field.

Additional adoption info

Adoption Fees for Dogs/Puppies:

Our fees range from $195 to $450 depending on age, medical treatments completed, etc. All dogs leave our facility up to date on vaccines, heartworm testing/preventative, flea/tick treatments, and microchipped.

This pet may have received other medical procedures, testing, surgeries, grooming that will necessitate a higher fee to cover these procedures.You will be provided with all medical records and certificates, leash, collar, starter packet of information. While we hope all our dogs find their exact forever home the first time they get placed, sometimes it just doesn't work out. Even after 6 months or 6 years, we are still here for you if you would ever need a home or help with your adopted pet. We also offer a lifetime of support and advice if necessary to help you work through any issues with your new adopted pet and your family. Our adoption fees help pay for the spaying/neutering, health care and food for rescued dogs, horses, cats and other companion animals that live at the rescue. If it seems high to you then you should reconsider adopting an animal as the cost of veterinary, preventative, and personal care over the life of an animal is not something to be taken lightly.

Information on housetraining, compatibility, history, and temperament of any animal may not be known. We will post updated information as it becomes available.

Adoption fees for cats/kittens-$95 +. Fee covers spay/neuter, all necessary vaccines, Felv/FIV test, multiple de-wormings, flea/tick treatment, and micro-chip with a prepaid registration which will be transferred into your name after 30 days. While we hope all our pets find their exact forever home the first time they get placed, sometimes it just doesn't work out.
