I love animals. In my life I have had several dogs and cats but also a horse, ducks, chickens, hamsters, gerbils, a rabbit, fish, frogs, and even a tarantula. They are all wonderful in their own way. Surprisingly these types of animals also end up in shelters and need forever homes.
Why this review?
I want to feature some special animals who are currently in the rescue organizations in our city. By showing them here perhaps they will reach someone who might not come across them any other way. These animals are the forgotten ones, the old or otherwise looked over sweethearts that languish in shelters. Let's see if we can help them find forever homes.
If you are not able to adopt one yourself, perhaps you can volunteer at a local shelter. They always need help.

A Little Bit About Stanley
Stanley is a sweet, older, gaited Appaloosa gelding ready for his retirement home! Stanley came to us as a displaced animal from Hurricane Harvey. He was not claimed by his owners so he is looking for his new family! He was severely underweight when we got him, but despite his age, he put the weight back on pretty quickly. Even after gaining weight, and prior to his castration, he had a relativity quiet and calm demeanor. Stanley is now a very sweet gelding and would likely make a good horse for children or grandchildren to learn to care for.
Stanley stands quietly for grooming, baths, vet and farrier work. He is a gentleman to walk and trailers well. He takes tack without any issues and is likely broke to ride. He did get a little sassy when we put some weight on the saddle, so he may need a refresher. However, given his age, we would prefer him to go to a home that has little to no intention of riding him. He is also a smaller horse, standing only 13.3 hands and is of narrow build.
If you're looking for a family horse to just love on and teach young children how to care for a horse, Stanley may be a good fit for your family! Please submit your application today to come see him!

A Little Bit About Savannah
Life is very hard for a bunny, but imagine how much more difficult it must be to be a homeless rabbit. Her page says nothing about her, but you can see from her picture she is very much a bunny, which means she is sweet and cuddly. I am sure once we got to know her we would find her with a delightful personality.
People have house bunnies and they can be litter box trained. Go on, you know you want her! Go and get her.

A Little Bit About Pie
Pie is a cute black and white Potbelly mix. She's shy at first but once warmed up she will enjoy a good ear scratch. Pie's pastimes include rolling in the mud, being sprayed with the water hose and eating some apple slices. Fill out an application today to come see this sweet girl!
