Animals Currently Available for Adoption

Horses and other animals in need are currently in the care of SHARE volunteers, waiting for a good home. If you are interested in adopting an animal from SHARE, you can see some of the current cases here. Please review our Adoption Requirements before submitting the Adoption Application.

Certain horses on this list are considered sanctuary horses. These animals have special needs that are unusually significant or difficult to manage. Unfortunately, we feel it is unlikely they will ever be adopted and so we have labelled them as such. However, we welcome sponsorships for these horses, or if you think you could provide for them as a lifetime adoptor or foster home, please contact us to discuss the situation.

The Starved Horse

My heart hurts because I am not loved.
I wish I could fly away just like a dove.
My tail no longer swishes back and forth.
I have lost everything that I was worth.
I am too skinny and too weak to care.
Something that no-one should ever have to bear.
Maybe I will get fed today.
Why am I teasing myself this way?
I know I will not get food or water.
To my owner I am just a bother.
They might love me I try to think.
Nicer thoughts I try to seek.
Today I will lay down in the mud.
Fall asleep and never wake up.

Breed:
Miniature Horse
Location:
SHARE - Sanctuary horse
Angie's Story:
Angie is a 35+ year old miniature horse who came to SHARE years ago. She was a companion to another older horse who was being euthanized, and the family no longer needed her, so SHARE was called to take her. Angie has Cushing's disease and Heaves that are managed with medication. Because of her advanced age and health problems, and because she's really a symbol of what SHARE does, Angie is a sanctuary horse and will stay at SHARE for the rest of her life.

Name:
Baker
Age:
25 years (1989 birthdate)
Gender:
Gelding
Species:
Horse
Breed:
AQHA
Location:
SHARE - Sanctuary horse
Baker's Story:
Baker was adopted several years ago but returned to SHARE just before Christmas 2012 when his owner lost interest–-absolutely no fault of Baker’s!

At a recent vet check to determine how much riding would be comfortable for Baker, the vet found a couple of issues that make Baker's condition a little more unknown, so the decision was made to let Baker remain at SHARE for the rest of his life. With his sweet attitude and great ground manners, he'll continue to be a volunteer favorite here.

Name:
Captain
Age:

Gelding
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Arabian
Location:
SHARE
Captain's Story:
Captain is a 20-something year old Arabian gelding. He came to us as a neglect case in Fulton County and wasn't being fed well. After he gets to a healthy weight, we'll evaluate him for riding. We suspect he is broke to ride. He is an energetic horse with good ground manners and a fast learner.

Name:
Chaos
Age:
16 (1998 estimated)
Gender:
Gelding
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Appaloosa
Location:
SHARE
Chaos's Story:
Chaos and Pete came to SHARE after a Dept of Ag investigation. He had horribly overgrown front hooves and had probably been kept in a stall for a long time. His legs and belly were caked with manure and we were told both horses may have foundered.

When SHARE picked up Chaos he could barely walk, so the decision was made to take him directly to the vet's office, rather than force him to unload, load, and go for another trailer ride later. He needed pain management, x-rays, and the vet and farrier (who works in the vet's office) to be able to formulate a plan together.

Fortunately, there was no founder but Chaos had bad abcesses in both feet, which was contributing to his pain. His hooves were so overgrown that he was walking on hoof wall. Due to the lack of hoof care he suffered, he will only ever be pasture sound. He is a very sweet horse, with a lovely personality. His adoption fee is $300. Email sharehorses@gmail.com if interested.

Name:
Charity
Age:
Teens
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Quarter Horse (unregistered)
Location:
SHARE
Charity's Story:
Charity is a sweet chestnut mare who came from the Muncie, IL rescue, you can read about it here. We believe her to be in her early teens, if even that old. She's blind. When she arrived at SHARE, she had a lump in her mouth that had gone untreated for who knows how long. She is the dam to Domino, the first colt we took in from this neglectful owner back in November, who has since been adopted. She was a good mom and did her best for him, at the expense of her physical condition. Charity is a friendly mare who loves attention from people. She would make a great companion horse or pasture pet for the right family. Until then, she is safe at SHARE as a Sanctuary Horse.

You can see more pictures of Charity on her updates page. Her adoption fee is $300.

Name:
Copper
Age:
16 (born 1998)
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Missouri Foxtrotter
Location:
SHARE
Copper's Story:
Copper is still at SHARE following the Ernest Rose case from 2007. Almost 70 horses were found to be living in terrible conditions without proper care. Various horse rescues collaborated to save the horses, and SHARE received 15 of them, including Copper. Several of the horses we took in have since been adopted! Copper would love to have her chance at a forever home as well.

Copper is pasture sound only, and really only needs a good-sized pasture for her to get out and move and she is a happy horse. She would be a good companion horse for a variety of other horse personalities, and is very docile and well-mannered toward people. This is an attractive mare with good manners who is easy to handle and care for. Please consider making her your pasture pet or companion horse. Her adoption fee is $300.

For more information, please email us - sharehorses@gmail.com

Name:
Crystal
Age:
9-10 (2003-2004 birthdate)
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Caspian Horse
Location:
Share - Sanctuary horse
Crystal's Story:
Crystal came in with 3 other Caspian horses when her breeder lost her home. Crystal suffers from some dental problems as well as an undetermined autoimmune disorder (possibly from ingesting something poisonous at some point) and came in in pitiful condition. Initially the vet checked her every few weeks to draw blood for a blood test and give her a steroid shot. Luckily, she's not needed a steroid shot after a few months, so she has reached some improvement. Because her teeth are in really bad shape for her age and we don't know when she might have more medical issues related to her autoimmune issue, we're considering her a sanctuary horse so she will stay at SHARE for as long as she can be kept comfortable.

We are looking for a sponsor to help out with Crystal's medical expenses. It is possible that she might be available for adoption to a very special home--Crystal must be closely monitored, currently sees the vet monthly, and will continue to have significantly higher medical costs in the future. Adopting Crystal is a significant commitment and isn't for everyone.

This photo was taken about 5 months after Crystal's arrival and she looks 100% better!

More pictures of Crystal are available on her updates page.

Gender:
Gelding
Species:
Horse
Breed:
AQHA registered
Location:
SHARE
Dash's Story:
Dash is a well-bred quarter horse who, as a foal, was accidentally kicked in the head by another horse. He sustained permanent nerve damage to his neck from the trauma. He is well-mannered, safe to be around, and mentally sound, but he is not and will never be safe to ride. When it was discovered that he has unsteadiness and neck pain when being ridden that could cause him to rear or react in other ways that could seriously injure a rider, he was set to be euthanized, and that is when SHARE stepped in. Dash is looking for a home as a pasture pet only. He is an easy-going, silly, young, halter-broke gelding and would be a great pasture mate for another such horse.

His adoption fee is $300.

Pinto
Location:

Dazzle's Story:
Dazzle was adopted from SHARE a few years ago with another mare (Spirit - also available for adoption), and was being ridden by the teenagers of the family. The family ended up moving and couldn’t keep them, so they both came back to us. They are both on the smaller side, being around 14 hands.

Dazzle is deaf, but she is still easy to handle. She is broke to ride for an intermediate rider. Her adoption fee is $500.

Dew's Story:
Dew is a pinto mare with some really loud and unique markings, who came from the Muncie, IL rescue, you can read about it here. She is blind and we believe the cause of her blindness to be cataracts, which may be operable. Despite her blindness she is a sweet mare, easy to handle, and really likes people.

Dew has conformation issues which make her pasture sound only. She would make a great companion to another sweet horse. She is safe with us at SHARE as a sanctuary horse unless the right home can be found.

Jazz's Story:
Jazz is a pinto gelding who came from the Muncie, IL rescue, you can read about it here. He was so sick that he collapsed when volunteers were trying to load in him into the trailer to get him to safety at the rescue. He had severe pneumonia and was in such severe condition that we were really worried, but he has made a full recovery. He has been gelded and is ready to find a forever home.

June 2014 update: Jazz was started undersaddle in May 2013. He is green broke to ride and is doing quite well. He does need an experienced rider to teach him all the things he needs to know. Jazz has a goofy personality that is easy to love. He has been ridden both inside and outside and crosses water well.

Name:
Julie
Age:
25 years (1989 birthdate)
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Thoroughbred
Location:
S.H.A.R.E Sanctuary Horse
Julie's Story:
Julie is an off the track Thoroughbred. She came from Kankakee and was found with horrible wounds on her legs. She was also so thin we did not think she would make the trip home. She spent 3 days at the veterinarian for her wounds. They had to inject antibiotics directly into the joint and she stood and let them. She must have known they were trying to help her. She is not sound because of arthritis which developed as a result of her past injuries and thus cannot be ridden. Julie is a sweet girl who has found friends at the rescue. In fact, she is serving as a guide horse and companion for Sugarfoot, a blind sanctuary horse at the rescue.

Because of her issues, Julie will live out her life at SHARE as a sanctuary horse. Julie is being sponsored by Cindy & Faith Dauber.

Name:
Juliet
Age:
4 (2010 estimated birthdate)
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Mustang? TB-cross?
Location:
SHARE
Juliet's Story:
Juliet came in from an investigation in Fall 2013. We were told she is a Thoroughbred or a Mustang. She has no neck tattoo and we’re pretty sure there is no TB there, so her breed is anyone's guess. She is very timid but we are certain she will come around with some time and patience since she’s very curious about people. She is one of several horses we have who would benefit tremendously from going home with a foster family–something about having the same person or few people handling and feeding on a daily basis really helps turn them around. We would welcome a foster home, a regular visiting volunteer to work with her, or of course, an adoption. Please let us know if you think you can help Juliet.

She was very underweight with severe muscle wasting in her rear legs due to a metabolic disorder called PSSM (Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy). She also has dropped pasterns. She requires a high fat diet with rich alfalfa hay to keep her in good physical condition. Due to her physical issues and very expensive dietary needs, Molly is a considered a sanctuary horse and will stay at SHARE for the rest of her life, although she could be adopted out to a very special home. Molly is a gentle girl with a big heart. She is a volunteer favorite who steals the heart of everyone she meets!

Name:
Sadie
Age:
7 (2007 birthdate)
Gender:
Mare
Species:

Breed:
Welsh-cross
Location:
SHARE
Sadie's Story:
Sadie is a Welsh cross pony mare. She's 11 hands high and in good condition. She's adorable, but was literally spoiled into having some bad manners that resulted in her family no longer being able to keep her.

With a volunteer trainer, Sadie has come a long way since she first came in! She is now being ridden comfortably at a walk, trot, and canter both indoors and outdoors! She even had a kid on her and went on a trailride on Middlefork--crossing water, big logs, and keeping up with the big horses with no problems. She is still green but at this time we believe an advanced beginner or intermediate child can handle riding her. She would be a heck of a pony club mount for the teen who wants to go-go-go and do it all! She still has some bratty pony behavior when in her stall so needs an adult around to supervise.

Sadie's adoption fee is $300.

Sally's Story:
Sally came to us along with her very thin pasturemate, Stonewall, who sadly passed away in 2013 and will be greatly missed. Stonewall was the riding horse and Sally was the carriage horse, however she has OCDs in her stifle so she is not sound for riding or driving. Sally has very good ground manners, is very friendly, and seems to be very safe to be around. This is a nice horse and everything you could want in a nice, older mare. Sally is also available for our foster program. Email sharehorses@gmail.com if interested.

Shadow's Story:
Shadow was adopted from SHARE about 6 years ago and had to come back due to some financial changes in her owner's life. She will be much missed but everyone hopes that Shadow can find a new family to love her just as much. She's kid-broke, and was primarily ridden by a 14 year old at her previous home. However, we have been struggling to get Shadow's heaves under control since coming back to SHARE. At this time she is only pasture sound as we feel that being ridden would just be too much for her.

She was pregnant with Sunshine, also available for adoption, and foaled during her stay at SHARE.

Name:
Sierra
Age:
9 years (2005 birthdate)
Gender:
Mare
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Quarter Horse
Location:
SHARE
Sierra's Story:
In July 2011, SHARE went back to a nurse mare farm with a local family who were willing to take on some nurse mares home to raise themselves. There we met Sierra, a pregnant mare which the owner said was going to go straight to slaughter because she was mean. Sierra bore the evidence--injuries on her forehead where she had been hit with a 2x4.

Once at SHARE, we found Sierra to be sweet and a little bit shy. She had no training, so she had no manners, but she was definitely not a mean horse. While awaiting the birth of her baby, Sierra experienced kind and consistent handling at SHARE and now has good ground manners and is very easy to handle. Sierra gave birth to a beautiful filly (Morning Star) on February 16th. Sierra was a loving, wonderful mom. Morning Star found a home after being weaned, and now it's Sierra's turn!

Sierra appears to be fully sound and went to a training foster home in the winter of 2012 where she was started undersaddle. Sierra is 15.0 hands high and has a big solid and well-balanced quarter horse build with a feminine mare's head and ears. Sierra looks like a ranch horse type and seems like she would be good at many related disciplines, roping, ranch work, or trails and cruising around at home. Sierra's adoption fee is $500.

Sister
Age:

Breed:

Location:

Sister's Story:
Sister came to us several years ago due to her being unable to be ridden. She came with a past injury that made her pasture sound only. She was adopted to a home where she was loved and cared for. Unfortunately, that home was unable to care for her either. Sister came back to our facility in 2013 looking for a new home. She is a sweet sweet girl that allows anyone to handle her. Sister has a wonderful personality and will make an excellent companion for another horse. Sister would also love to teach people about grooming and proper equine care. In November 2014, we introduced Sister to Smokey to help him recover from losing his sister Blossom. Sister has been taking great care of Smokey so far.

Name:
Smokey
Age:
34 years old
Gender:
Mare & Gelding
Species:
Horse
Breed:
Quarter Horse
Location:
Share - Sanctuary horses
Smokey's Story:
Blossom is the bay horse (in front), and she's blind. Smokey is her brother, and her guide horse. They are 33 and 34 years old (as of 2014), and are always together, because Blossom depends on Smokey to guide her, and he understands she's blind and needs extra help. They are very special horses who are "sanctuary horses" at SHARE--they are not available for adoption due to their special needs, and we will provide a loving home for them until they are no longer comfortable. Smokey and Blossom are very friendly horses and love being groomed.

Despite their advanced age, they are in gorgeous condition and like several other oldies at SHARE, are proof that old age shouldn't automatically mean poor condition.

Update 09/05/14: We had to say goodbye to one of our long time residents today. Blossom went down in the pasture and was unable to get up. Our vet came out and we tried everything we could to get her up but Blossom was telling us that she was done. She was close to 35 years old and had lived here for the last 9 years. Even though Blossom was blind she was always trusting of everyone and enjoyed being groomed. She left behind her lifelong friend Smokey who is also close to 35 years old. We knew she couldn't stay with us forever but were not expecting her to leave us today. Please keep Smokey in your thoughts as he tries to recover from losing his best friend.

Spirit is only about 14 hands tall and is easy to handle. Spirit and Dazzle came back to us in 2013 because the family was moving and could not care for them anymore.

She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind!

Twiggy's hair has grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. She is used to lots of handling, is halter broke and will stand pretty good for the farrier. At 3 years old, she's doing great. In May 2012, at almost exactly 1 year old she was 13.2 hands high. She has no signs of her rough start and our vet said the nurse mare colts will not have any lasting issues because of it. She's adorable, sweet, and ready for her forever home!

June 2014 Update: Wow!! So hard to believe how this little girl's life started! Twiggy is now started undersaddle and is doing phenomenal! She is ready to be finished in any direction you want her to go. Won't you give this lovely lady the forever home she so deserves? Stay up to date on Twiggy's progress on her updates page.

Twiggy's adoption fee is $500.
