CONGRATS to Gunner on being adopted this month. We never really promoted him much because we were pretty sure he was going to be adopted by his long time foster family....and this past weekend they made it official.
Poppy got adopted this week! She is such a lucky girl.
CONGRATULATIONS HARLEY on getting adopted and finding a little girl of your own.
CONGRATULATIONS Val... We are pleased to share that Valentino has been adopted and will be living with Chester (now Kiyah).
Thanks to everyone who made this placement possible and to his awesome new family!
CONGRATULATIONS TACO on your adoption today! We know you will be dearly loved just as you deserve to be.
CONGRATULATIONS CHESTER on your adoption. His adopter has renamed him "Kiyah" a name significant to her and her journey to finding this lovely fella.
He will be going to live at a lovely farm in Iowa!
CONGRATULATIONS SHADOW on finding a wonderful new home with Melissa, one of our Adoption Academy graduates. Melissa was fully committed to the program and has continued to volunteer at the rescue to help develop even more skills to prepare her for horse ownership.
She had been waiting for the right horse to come along for her. And when Shadow came to us, we knew these two were going to be just what each other needed.
Thanks to The Right Horse for the grant that funded this innovative project and helped these two find each other.
CONGRATULATIONS DONK on your adoption this weekend. Donk is actually a mini mule, but he developed the nickname and it stuck. His family is planning to keep it too because it suits him.
Thanks to everyone who pulled together to help us make this awesome match.
CONGRATULATIONS NAPOLEON! We are THRILLED to share that Napoleon has been adopted! We appreciate the family who has fostered him the past several months and Lisa Lawrence at Coventry Woods for helping us make this amazing match with his adopters. It takes a village sometimes to help horses find their perfect person... and Napoleon has had many people looking out for him along the way.
CONGRATULATIONS PUMPKIN on your adoption! It is official, she'll be staying with her long time foster family.
After numerous approved applications that just didn't work out for one reason or another...it seems that Trevor's someone has finally come along. He is scheduled to leave for his new home in a few days.
When adoptions fall through for one reason or another it is easy to get discouraged. We know the horse is amazing. Often times applicants will be just as excited as us and then suddenly things happen and they are no longer able to adopt. It happens. But it is tough when you had such high hopes. That has happened for Trevor at least 3 times.
But today the young man that is adopting Trevor came by to visit him. He lead Trevor around the barn gleefully. He told me that when he dreams at night....he dreams of "this pony". He says from the minute he saw Trevor he was in love and asked his grandfather if he could have Trevor and his grandfather said yes. He gets a kick out of the little shuffle step that Trevor does when he takes off at a trot. This child just adores Trevor to the core.
I told one of our volunteers once during one of those adoptions that didn't go through...that I've learned not to get too discouraged. Because almost always when this happens it is because the RIGHT person hasn't come along yet. That perfect someone that the horse or pony is waiting for. I think all of those applications fell through because Trevor knew his little boy hadn't found him yet.
In this photo Trevor is pictured with Kenzie...one of our Barn Buddies who works with him. She shed tears of happiness today knowing Trevor found a kid all his own. Tears of sadness too because she'll miss him. Our volunteers give so much of themselves to these horses to prepare them for happily ever after....mostly they give a piece of their heart
It is official!! Velvet has been adopted by the awesome folks at Coventry Woods Stables! They fostered and trained her the entire time she’s been with us and have done a stellar job...and while doing all of that...they and the rest of the barn family fell in love with this adorable little mare. Congratulations to everyone involved.
OLIVER left for his new home today!!! We are so happy for him!!
CONGRATULATIONS to Cherokee and Eclipse on your adoption today. These two horses went to such a wonderful family and we were so happy to meet them.
LOUIE was adopted today! Thanks to his foster family for giving him a ride to his new home.
This adoption was a direct result of our Rescue Road Trip project with the ASPCA.
Buttercup and her new adopter! These two make the greatest pair.
