Who Needs a Rescue?

Many horses are just unlucky. And these days it seems that there are more unlucky horses than ever. These horses have any of a number of problems that place them at such risk that they must be removed from their situations. They may have aging families, or families with medical issues that cannot physically care for them and can’t find a new home for them. They may have inexperienced families who were not ready for their behavioral or medical issues. Some horses have loving families that have fallen on hard times and have lost their homes or jobs. Others have owners who have lost interest in them, or simply abandoned them. The one thing they have in common is just plain, bad luck.

The White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue takes in these unlucky horses, addresses their physical, veterinary and behavioral needs, and then works to find them new homes with well-suited families. We specialize in Appaloosas, but we will take in horses of other breeds if we have the resources to help. We will accept only horses in urgent need, whose owners have no other options for rehoming them and cannot keep them. We do not accept horses that owners wish to surrender to us for other reasons, such as retirement, or in order to replace them with more advanced horses. We accept horses regardless of medical condition or adoptability if we believe we can help them achieve a good quality of life.

We believe there is a home for each and every one of these horses, if we have the time and resources to find it. But if we cannot adopt a horse into a new home, we provide sanctuary, so that each horse can live out the remainder of its life in safety and dignity.
