Hello everyone! Just one great update, today!
Cola was rescued with Pecos by a private home – Deb Pennington. Today we helped her find a home for him now that his rehab is complete!
What a great day for this guy!
If you are interested in adopting one of our current horses:
for the most up to date list. Ky, Ohio and WV Tristate area. These horses and other animals are all in NEED of a home, some urgently, some are safe but waiting for their forever home – please check under each photo to find out an fees, location and so forth. Visitwww.wvhorserescue.org
Our adoption fees are:
$400-500 for Well trained horse that are sound
$300-350 for Rideable Horses with minor health issues or advanced age
$150 for horses and minis that are pasture companions only or not undersaddle
Rescue expenses preparing our horses for adoption are much greater than our fees could possibly cover. Donations are needed to assure we continue our efforts to rescue dogs.
The fee includes:
Board for an average of 4-6 months
Dental float ($100 and up)
Current coggins ($30)
Basic vaccinations ($20)
Farrier care every 4-8 weeks ($30 per trim)
Evaluation to make certain the horses gets the right rider and home
One on one training for horses that will benefit from it
Gelding, if needed
Medications, if needed
AN ASSURANCE of the adopter that the horse they adopt has a team behind him or her that will work with the adopter every step of the way to be sure the adoptive horse is a good fit for you – THE ADOPTER!
We are a 501(c)3 Non-profit Organization, so please remember that your adoption fee is only a very small portion of what it costs to care for that horse or pony from rescue through adoption.
OUR GOAL IS A LIFE LONG HOME, SO YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT WE WANT YOU TO FIND THE RIGHT HORSE FOR YOU! We will try to match horse and rider as best we can to assure a forever home for the horse. That is our main concern!
Our time is limited as we are all volunteer operated. Please do not submit an application until you’re reasonable certain you are dedicated to the idea of adoption. Make sure you can either supply transport or afford to hire reputable transport for your adoptive horse.
Applications take time to process. We try to make sure they are ran within 2 weeks, but reality can mean a longer wait time. Vet and farriers and other references frequently take quite some time to return phone calls, and our volunteers have to budget application processing into their daily lives. Please be patient!
Over 100 HORSES rescued and/or PLACED and counting for owners unable
to continue care for their horses, rescuers unable to
screen homes, seizures and directly from the rescue!
Thank you so much for your continued support! Remember to check back each day for new updates!
