List of Equine Rescues


Countdown is on, Big Day of Giving is Coming!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: Your Donation Makes a Difference! We introduced Cody earlier this year, and look at him now. Cody is a 1999 Arabian gelding that came to AAE after long-time family health issues with his owner and the passing of his caretaker. When Cody arrived at AAE, he was very under weight and in much need of dental care. After intake, he was put on a pellet diet. All of his basic needs were updated including dental and farrier care, vaccines, dewormer and a new microchip. Cody enjoys people, loves grooming and attention. He has been getting a refresher with his ground manners, as he can be a bit pushy. He appears sound, and he enjoys working! He has been ridden lightly a handful of times, walk, trot, canter, but needs some conditioning and rebuilding before asking much more. He seems to know how to move off the leg, and seems to be generally calm, quiet, and easy. Cody is ready for his new home. He could be a fun restart project for an experienced person; he's not suitable for a beginner at this time. It is because of the support from our volunteer and donors that horses like Cody get a second chance. Your donations makes a difference! See Cody in Action Save the Date, May 7, 2020, for the Sacramento Region Community Foundation's Big Day of Giving! This year there are 615 nonprofit participating! We are excited to be a part of this community grown 24 hour giving challenge! This comes during a time of great uncertainty, especially for horses like Cody, and your support is more important than ever. Your donation will assure Cody and our other horses continue to receive the level of care they need. We understand many have been impacted by COVID-19, ...

THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION AND YOUR LOVE AND SUPPORT! HAPPY NEWS FOR BRUISER

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. Thank you so much for your love and support. Your donations make it possible to keep on doing our work, even in the midst of the Pandemic. Sadly, (but understandably), as the Pandemic increases, folks doing rescue are all seeing their budgets decreasing. So we want to send out an extra special THANK YOU to you for helping us keep saving lives. Sadly, the slaughter trucks have not missed a beat, and are still continuing to roll. BRUISER UPDATE! PTL!! Our beautiful little boy had something in that beautiful head click. I think his wires all came together. He is now drinking his milk without issue. I no longer have to give him 2 shots a day, and he is rocking his little world. Obviously he could still crash, but it appears to be much less likely than before - woohooo!!! THANK YOU FROM BRUISER - for hanging in there and never giving up! Sending prayers for all of y'all out there. We also have great news about the little baby we had at the feedlot. Little Lona was transferred to Mama Mel's, and then picked up by Bev Boshart. She is one of our amazing Chilly Pepper Family, and her rescue has taken 2 foals last year and hooked them up with a Mama and she took on the one we just rescued. Yes, she did it again. Lona now has her own horsey Mama. We are so grateful to Bev for all she does. It's Teamwork that makes the Dream work! Please stay safe out there and keep us in your prayers. Rescue never stops. Even though the funding has slowed down, we have not. So THANK YOU AGAIN ...

BRUISER UPDATE – RE EMERGENCY VET VISIT

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. UPDATE - WE RECEIVED GOOD NEWS!!! His upper airways were compromised and that is why he was having trouble breathing. Thankfully they are clear now and although he continues to have issues, it appears most of it is staying out of his lungs. He may need scoped if these issues continue, and he is definitely not out of the woods, but we are not losing him this morning. Both Docs said go back to the bottle. It was terrifying listening to him gurgle and choke this morning. His little nostrils are too small to use their scope, so we are heading home, praising God that although he sounded like Dandelion, he has a real chance to get through this. Bruiser is crashing. It's 3 a.m. and I can hear him struggling to breathe. He has fought so hard to be here, and we finally got his blood test coming back close to normal. It was a big improvement, but he was still having issues. Bruiser is having trouble when he drinks his milk. We always take them off the bottle asap, and many times they never even see a bottle. However, this is when Bruiser's troubles started. He was "off", or "special" if you will, when we got him. His band left him alone to die. It is obvious there were multiple reasons for Mama to leave him. In the wild, if a baby is sick or injured, the stallion or others in the band will often kill it, or they just leave it behind. It is harsh, but is is survival and they do not want predators attracted. He was not a "dummy" foal, but his ...

3 A.M – BRUISER IS CRASHING – HE NEEDS HELP ONCE MORE – WE ARE HEADING TO THE EMERGENCY VET

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. Bruiser is crashing. It's 3 a.m. and I can hear him struggling to breathe. He has fought so hard to be here, and we finally got his blood test coming back close to normal. It was a big improvement, but he was still having issues. Bruiser is having trouble when he drinks his milk. We always take them off the bottle asap, and many times they never even see a bottle.

It is harsh, but is is survival and they do not want predators attracted. He was not a "dummy" foal, but his brain was not fully wired yet. He has been improving, but this morning I can hear the pneumonia. He has been on antibiotics and Doc has tried numerous ones to help him, but this is a critical situation at this point. I am not sure if Comstock can save him or not, (they have a hospital on sight). It is so hard, because this is not a baby that has been depressed or lays around moping. He is feisty and runs and plays, but he is crashing right now. It is definitely NOT in the budget, but I have to try and give him one last chance. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN! There is so much heartache out there. I am hoping ...

NEWBORN BABY(S) AT THE SHIPPER – SEVERELY INJURED MARE – CAN WE KEEP HER OFF THE SLAUGHTER TRUCK?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Once again I hope this finds you safe and healthy. Our prayers go out for all the families in crisis. MEET "DESTINY" - As you can see, she has quite the injury and needs vet care as soon as possible. If she cannot be fixed, we would give her a peaceful ending. However, I am hopeful that with lots of TLC we can save her. URGENT - RECEIVED A PHONE CALL TODAY FOR A NEWBORN (Not sure how many) ON THE FEED LOT. Thankfully, (if you can find anything to be thankful about in these situations) baby gets to stay with Mama for a few more days. When Mama ships, we will need to be there. (I DO NOT have an option to save Mama). It is beyond heartbreaking, but we have to focus on the ones we can save. SEVERELY INJURED MARE - DESTINY - This mare's injury is in such a place it may be extremely hard for it to heal. At the very least she needs to be kept off the slaughter truck. WE ARE HER ONLY CHANCE! If you blow up the photo you can see how big her gash is, and that she already has swelling in her tummy. She needs help asap. I have a vet scheduled for Monday to see if she can help her. (Can't get her until we raise the funds to save and vet her.) We are also doing Coggins, Health Certs etc. on the other kids. Out of 4 TB colts, only one was healthy. Sadly, our beautiful little buckskin passed during the night. I was told she was eating and drinking but not feeling well, and this morning when they went out to feed she had passed. We have a huge hernia to repair, a big gouge in the ...

Boots & Bling Update

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: During these uncertain times, our thoughts are with you, our AAE community, your families and friends. We have YOU, thank you!  Important Updates Out of an abundance of caution for your well-being and that of our volunteers, participants, supporters, and vendors, AAE made the difficult decision to postpone our Boots & Bling event from May 2, 2020 to a late Summer/early Fall date. Due to the uncertainties with the current COVID-19 situation, our event venue has a scheduling moratorium in place.  As soon as we can we can move forward with scheduling, taking into consideration the safety of everyone involved, we will announce a new date. Boots and Bling is critical to AAE's annual funding, and it is also a very important event where all of AAE's supporters can come together. We assure you, Boots will not be canceled. The BEST part is we'll have more time to create a BETTER event!! We hope you are as excited as we are to get the date set! Again, out of an abundance of caution for our volunteer and community safety, we have implemented numerous measures related to COVID-19 which have impacted our day to day activities at AAE. Though we have many horses looking for homes, our ADOPTION VISITS are temporarily on hold. If you are interested in adopting a horse, we are still working remotely to discuss adoption interest and review inquiries. Our VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES have been temporarily limited to small teams carrying out essential activities to assure the horses are well cared for. We continue accessing veterinary, hoof and dental care, as needed.   NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS have been temporarily postponed; however, we are still collecting information from anyone interested in volunteering, once we resume normal day-to-day activities. AAE'S USED TACK STORE is temporarily closed. We look forward to re-opening ...
