Calamity

Calamity Jane

This very sweet 17 yr. old black PMU Quarter horse mare, rescued from Alberta, Canada in 2005, has found a forever home. She has been adopted by Carole Collins, who will be asking nothing other than love, hugs, and tranquil walks together. Carole was looking for a companion to her 18 yr. old ex-racehorse, and a horse on whom she could shower affection. When Carole saw Calamity Jane on our website, she thought this might be the one, especially as Carole’s daughter is named Jane. A visit proved the match was right, and a happy ending for this gentle mare.

Marlo

Marlo

PMU mare from Alberta, Canada, rescued 2005. Marlo is one of the sweetest mares. A horse who bonded quickly with people, it was apparent Marlo so wanted a home of her own. Approximately 20 years old, we thought her chances for adoption were getting rather slim. However, there was someone looking for a gentle mare to love. When Geri Pritzel viewed Marlo on our website, she somehow knew that Marlo was “the one.” Marlo did get her heart’s desire, and now has a home of her own on 5 beautiful acres in Flagstaff. She has Penny, a rescued donkey for a companion, and she will live out the rest of her life in comfort and happiness, being loved and giving love in return. Adopted August 26, 2007

Shirley

Shirley

PMU mare, Quarter horse, born 1993 – rescued from slaughter & transported from Alberta, Canada – 2005.
Shirley’s story is surely incredible. She was at a PMU farm that lost its contract and sending all horses to slaughter. She had a foal by her side, and she was foundering. Her foal was adopted, but ended up on the slaughter truck…Shirley could not protect her. The farmer wanted to send Shirley to slaughter as she was foundering, but EV founder Karen begged for her life – paying full price for a lame horse. Shirley has become an extremely sweet and loveable mare. She was put up for adoption as a companion only, as she will always have some lameness issues, and she is prone to foundering. However, Deb Smoot, a volunteer who adopted another horse (yearling Bambi Bay, from Equine Voices) decided to give Shirley a forever home. Thank you, Deb. Please know that Shirley will give you back in gratitude and affection – ten fold – the love you will bestow on her as a member of your family.

Sundancer

Sundancer

PMU foal, born Spring, 2006, Belgian draft cross. Sundancer came to Equine Voices as a weanling, saved from slaughter in the fall of 2006. A big and very elegant looking colt, he was rather shy and a bit skittish. Sundancer was looking for the right person to adopt him. That person came along one year later. Natalie Tornquist saw his picture, came to Equine Voices to meet Sundancer, and knew immediately that he was calling to her. Natalie has been riding since a small child, and was the proud owner of a much cherished horse for 15 years. When her mare died six years ago, Natalie continued to ride, but her grieving heart prevented her from seeking another horse until now. There was an instant bond, and Sundancer has been given a loving, forever home with Natalie. Adopted October 17, 2007.

Apache

Tehya

Tehya

PMU mare – Palomino Paint. Tehya is a striking horse, with beautiful coloring and one blue eye. She had many, many inquiries, but Tehya is a horse who needed to pick her owner. Tehya bonded closely with Claudia Folch, a volunteer at Equine Voices. Claudia adopted Desert Star and knew that Tehya was the other horse to complete her herd of two. This is a happy horse, for there was no one besides Claudia with whom she forged such a close bond.

Casper and Wendy

Casper & Wendy

I found Desert Springs Equine Sanctuary Center on the internet and did a bit of research. I soon discovered that DSESC had a partnership with Equine Voices. On a beautiful Saturday morning, my husband and I went for a tour of DSESC. As we walked from horse to horse and learned about the horrors that many had suffered, I was heartbroken. At the very last corral on the tour, I found a blue eyed, cremello colt that won my heart instantly. I learned about how this little colt had been born at DSESC and the story of “Hope” the foal’s mother. I was told that “Hope” and another mare “Joy” were rescued from auction by Equine Voices in March 2009 after being found packed with drugs and covered in pack sores. When Hope arrived at DSESC, she was so emaciated that they had no idea that she was well into her eighth month of pregnancy. As we drove away from Desert Springs, both my husband and I knew that we had found a new addition to our family.

Freedom with his keepers at OOA

Freedom aka “BeBo” and “Buddy”

Freedom was rescued after Equine Voices received a call by his owner asking for help. She lost her husband and was losing her home. Freedom was loved, but his owner was limited in her knowledge of how to properly care for a donkey. Freedom’s feet had not been trimmed in months; he was fed only alfalfa, had a horrible wound on his leg, and lived in a space the size of a bed of a pick-up truck. Once at Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary, Freedom roamed the ranch and became one of the volunteers’ favorite pals.

Update On Freedom From His New Forever Home At Out Of Africa

Freedom is now at his new forever home at Out Of Africa Wildlife Park located in Camp Verde, AZ. Freedom has 2 beautiful and spacious habitats along with several new friends to include the staff and many new animal friends and companions. Thank you to Lisa Braun for coordinating Freedom’s adoption along with Karen Pomroy. Freedom is currently hanging out with 2 emus, 3 fallow deer and a burro named Pete. Since Mokora the antelope passed away Freedom will be relocated to the park owner’s backyard to live with Kenyatti the baby antelope and Avalanche the dog. That habitat is really cool with lots of plants, giraffe and zebras as neighbors and a path that goes right up to the front porch of the house so he can have lots of attention. Freedom is missed by all of us at Equine Voices, he made friends with the volunteers, our baby foal, Catori and Sunrise, our baby burro and a husky named Kodah.

Burrito

Age: Over 20    Gender: Jack    

The day before Sunrise was to leave for his new, forever and loving home, Equine Voices received a call about a burro that needed a home. Nothing was mentioned about his condition; only that he was rescued from a man that at night would fancy going out to beat him. Burrito was taken in by a family who recently lost their home. Since Sunrise was being adopted, we decided, sight unseen, to give Burrito sanctuary. Linda and Joey stopped in Cave Creek, on the way to Equine Voices and picked him up for us. When I picked up the phone, it was Joey, “Karen, you will not believe what I’m seeing”….so the story was told. When Burrito arrived at the sanctuary, like many of our rescues, unprepared, we could not believe his condition. He was born with a disability. His back knees rub together when he walks to the point that his knees were raw and bloody, and untreated. His eyes were scavenged by flies, and they too were raw and bloody. He is 22 years old, and never been gelded. I stood there wondering what this poor guy was thinking and feeling. He has only been here a week, but despite his issues, he is becoming a loving and trusting friend, is eating like a champ, and seems to figure out his way around his pen. Let’s pray for little Burrito, and hope he will heal like so many of those innocents that have found their way to the sanctuary.
