Over the years I have seen so much pain and suffering of horses who have done nothing but give to their human counter parts. We've decided to do what ever we can to help! We are far from rich, and in our retirement years, we are determined to do what ever it takes to help in any way we can.
Our name is The Last Straw Horse Rescue and Sanctuary, we are a incorporated 501 (3)(c) non-profit org. Our By-Laws are very different then many of the Rescues out there, in my researches I have found many who have done so much to help! But then I've come across more that are in it only to line their pockets! This makes me so sick, I think there should be some way to change the laws to stop all this scamming.
The Last Straw NEVER sells their horses, horses that can be rehabilitated and are able to leave the Sanctuary, are matched with their forever partner, adoption is free of charge. The new owner with have to successfully complete a 6 week care, feeding and basic horsemanship course, for first time owners. A three week brush up course for adopters with previous horse experience. After the new facilities are inspected, and deemed safe, horse will be delivered and the 12 month probation period will begin. Adoption will be finalized upon successful completion. At anytime the new owner is unable to provide for their horse it is to be returned to The Last Straw.
We also have a program for those good horse people out there, that because of the economy need help, to keep from losing their beloved friends. Care, feed, even boarding plans available. To be determined by the applicant's needs. We are here to help, if you or know of a horse or owner needing help, please let us know. For future reference, our non profit donations, proceeds etc. are given 100% directly to the horses
