"The Dude"

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: danielle.styborski@gmail.com.

  "Triumph and Victory"

Thoroughbred Geldings

7/9/15 -Triumph and Victory, the horses ANNA Equine Clinic rescued from an abandoned barn a few weeks ago. These horses are recovering well. Their personalities are coming out, they love attention and to be brushed. They have a lot of hair loss due to the mites and lice. They are very sensitive to sunlight and are mostly turned out during dusk and early morning. They still have some bad habits from their ordeal such as cribbing (chewing on things). We are hoping in the next month or two we will be able to start accepting application for them to continue to flourish in a forever home! Thank you for all the support for these two, keep those prayers and good thoughts coming!! 

If you are interested in adopting Triumph or Victory, please complete the adoption application attached to this page and return it to staff@theannashelter.com
