Mae is an aged Belgian molly mule. She is in very poor condition. She is was used to train other mules. She appears to be sound but her body condition recovery will take time. We will be posting updates!
Mae is improving everyday. She is very sweet and very smart.
Beau came from a kill pen in Eastern Pennsylvania. He is a teen-aged, very handsome, Belgian gelding with arthritis in his left front knee and shoulder. He was VERY lame when he arrived here. We had his hooves trimmed correctly and he is taking joint supplements. He has some occasional bute (an anti-inflammatory), but for the most part is doing quite a lot better. He is a bit timid but we are slowly gaining his trust.
One day an old man was walking down the beach just before dawn. In the distance he saw a young man picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea. As the old man approached the young man, he asked, "Why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?" The young man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. The old man exclaimed, "But there must be thousands of starfish. How can your efforts make any difference?" The young man looked down at the starfish in his hand and as he threw it to safety in the sea, he said, "It makes a difference to this one!"
Merlin is a teen-aged Percheron gelding. His is thin and his hooves need a lot of work. He is very sweet and very quiet.
Merlin has Chronic Progressive Lymphedema. This is caused from untreated leg infections. Merlin is very quiet and very well trained. He will thrive in a home that will commit to some extra care for his legs.
Merlin is available for adoption.
Grady arrived from a kill pen in Western Pennsylvania in November of 2014. He was aged, emaciated, and in very poor overall health. Unfortunately, he was only with us for a few days, but we were grateful to be able to surround him with love when he passed over the Rainbow Bridge. RIP Sweet Boy!

Meet Jimmy! Jimmy is 16 ish years old, a Belgian gelding, and super sweet! He is our most recent resident. He has some neurological issues and an infected molar. We are working very hard on narrowing down his diagnosis. In the meantime, we are treating his infected tooth, he is taking an anti-inflammatory, vitamin E, and we are working on the best diet for him. He has improved greatly and are thrilled to have him here with us!
Bella is an aged Belgian mare. She is very quiet and sweet. She just joined us in July. We are working on her initial care, getting her hooves trimmed, her teeth floated, being seen by our veterinarian, and feeding her appropriately.
Bella is still in quarantine but will be available for adoption very soon.

King came to us from western New York. We are thrilled that we were offered the chance to save him BEFORE he was sent to an auction. King is in very poor condition but is improving every day. He is a kind horse. He came to us filthy and sore. Appropriate feeding and exercising is making a difference already!
Available for adoption soon.
Jetstar (In Our Care)
Big Jake ended up in the hands of a kill-buyer in South Carolina in January of 2016. Through a joint effort with Equine Rescue Network (ERN), we were able to save him and get him into a safe foster home. He arrived to our facility in February. He is an older Belgian gelding with one eye. Big Jake is settling into his new home and is very sweet.
Jetstar came from a kill pen in Western Pennsylvania in April of 2015. He is an aged Percheron gelding. He came to us emaciated, scared, and difficult to handle. It took several months for him to settle in and feel safe. He had diarrhea for many months until we finally found a feeding program that worked for him. He has been gaining weight, and appears so much better. He actually plays now and is getting to be a little bit bossy! He is a very sweet boy who has bonded very tightly with Big Ben, they are the best of friends.
Grady, our very first rescue!
Big Ben came from a kill pen in Western Pennsylvania in November of 2014. He is an aged Belgian gelding and a very sweet boy with amazing manners. He picks his feet up, he lowers his head for his halter and leads with just a rope around his neck. He has some arthritis and loves to nap. He takes his retirement seriously. Big Ben is very bonded with Jetstar, they are great friends.
Anne is a 17 y/o Belgian mare that came directly off a farm in western New York. She is a very sweet gal. She is blind in her left eye, is very thin, and has pastern osteoarthritis in her right front. We have started her on Equioxx to help with her pain level. We are working on getting her back to a normal weight and just letting her get settled in.
