Horses are housed in various foster locations or may be placed with a trainer. If you are interested in meeting one of these horses or if you are searching for a horse, please complete the adoption application (linked at the bottom of this page) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may be able to help match you with a horse in need before it ever makes it into our program!
Please keep in mind that horses are shown
BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
Senior (19+ years) Standardbred Gelding
The Dude came to The ANNA Shelter Equine Rescue as a part of an initiative through the ASPCA. He was purchased at auction by the ANNA team as he was at risk for being shipped for slaughter. When the equine team met The Dude the morning of the auction, he was in a sad state. He was extremely thin and had severe wounds that were infected along his withers and back. The wounds were clearly from an ill-fitting harness on a thin horse. The Dude was brought home with the ANNA team and has been receiving lots of TLC. His wounds are healing as they are being treated topically and with an antibiotic. He is eating his fill of hay every day and getting lots and lots of fresh water. It is amazing what simply having access to food and water can do for a horse. The Dude is quickly gaining weight and the spark is back in his eyes. Although he still has some recovery time ahead of him, we are confident that he will make a full comeback and will be available for adoption then. We are still in the process of working with the US Trotting Association to try to decipher The Dude's lip tattoo to determine "who" he is and what his true age is. If you are interested in giving The Dude a retirement home, send an email to: email@example.com.

Victory and Triumph
Victory and Triumph are the Thoroughbreds we rescued with the Pennsylvania State Police back in June. Thanks to our amazing Equine Team headed by Dr. Blake Roseberry and his wife, Robyn, these guys are in great shape and ready for their new lease on life! Victory is an 8 year old gleding who has been on the race track from what we know. We've just started with these guys to see what all they know and what they'll be able to do. Triumph is about 6 years old - also a gelding and has been raced from what we've been told. Both of these horses have been to hell and back and deserve a wonderful kind home where they will never know suffering again. If you'd like to meet one of these handsome boys - give Robyn a call. She can give you much more information and see if one of these geldings would fit what you're looking for.
Adoption fee is $500 for each horse - Call Robyn at 814-746-6494
Josie is a special little lady with TONS of potential. She was born at our rescue barn and is the daughter of one of our favorite resuce mares - Blossom. She is a stunning leopard appy filly who just turned one this year. She is ready to start for just about anything! She LOVES people and is very smart and willing to learn. We're looking for a home and person as special as Josie! If you'd like to find out more about her - give Robyn a call at 814-746-6494.
