Tiara Que Si (Lucy)

Tiara Que Si (Lucy)

Donate Breed: Paso Fino; Born 1986; Gender: Mare Sponsorship Status: Sponsor Needed This little lady is a spanish gem.  She epitomizes all great things about Paso Finos with a fiery personality, fabulous gait, and compact size.  Tiara Que Si, or Lucy as she is known in foster came to rescue through a Robertson County neglect seizure.  A bad smell was emanating from a home, and neighbors thought the owner had died—the homeowner was not deceased, but sadly, the home was full of living and deceased cats, urine, and feces.  In the case law enforcement had all animals removed from the property and the owner was court ordered to not own animals again.  The horses in the case all came to Safe Harbor.  The younger horses were adopted out, but in Lucy’s advanced years we decided to have her stay with Safe Harbor to avoid the stress of transitioning again.  Lucy is in a fabulous foster home where she will live for the remainder of her life.  She enjoys the quiet life and lots of brushing and love.  Can you be her sponsor to show her that she is...

Mozart

Mozart

Breed: Mini Horse; Born 2011; Gender: Gelding Sponsorship Status: Fully Sponsored With Love By Marla Smith. Mozart joined Safe Harbor in 2016 during a neglect intake of a large herd of minis.  The herd had owned by a well-meaning individual who was just in over their head.  They did not understand that miniature horses have the same care requirements as large horses, dietary restrictions, hoof care and more.  They did not understand that miniature horses must be trained like full size horses to be good equine citizens.  The result was a herd of a significant size with issues like founder, urinary obstruction and more.  Mozart instantly stood out from the herd.  There was a softness in his eye that we could tell even while scared he wanted love.  We knew he had something a little more to him, and brought him to our training center for recovery. Mozart has thrived. He has a good nature and gets along with all other animals in the training center.  He has gone to churches, schools, the Garden Show and more to teach others about equine welfare.  He is a favorite of visitors to the farm whether they come to volunteer or for therapeutic experiences.  Mozart is in sanctuary with Safe Harbor and will live his whole life in th...

Tigra

Tigra

Tigra is an approximately 2 year old small domestic long hair.  She was dropped off in a box with a kitten outside Sumner Spay Neuter Alliance, and after being spayed and vaccinated came to us. Tigra was unsocialized at the time, so she is ear tipped–this indicates that an outdoor or feral cat has been altered so they are not brought in repeatedly in a TNR program. Tigra, however, is not feral, and she is not even an outdoor cat.  She failed out of our barn cat program.  She hates the outdoors, and does not want to be a working cat.  Her favorite thing to do is cuddle and sleep.  When she was in the barn she would protest if she did not have a lap to sit on, but most times she would be on the patio to the house asking to come in.  In December she transitioned from outdoors to fully indoors and she has never looked back.  Tigra does not want to return to the outdoors at all, and she is seeking a permanent indoor home. Tigra is a small cat, litter box trained, and good with dogs that do not chase.  She shares the home with a Golden Retriever and another cat.  The other cat is cat aggressive, so Tigra is not often able to have free range of the house as she is at risk of being attacked by the resident house cat.  She tries to live peacefully, but when provoked she will respond to defend herself.  She has limited exposure to young children, but has never acted badly around children.  She loves to be pet, and she enjoys being picked up and carried.  She is somewhat wary of strangers, but she forms a bond quickly.  She loves tummy rubs.  Tigra does not have an adoption fee, but we will ask any interested adopter to be willing to provide her an indoor home and provide a vet reference so we know she will be well cared for.  Her adoption contract will include a return to rescue clause, so if for any reason she cannot stay with her adoptive home forever she must return to Safe...

Liz
