Horses and Donkeys
Allentown: (June 28, 2015), A 13 year old mini female horse and a 12 year old small male neutered pony are in need of a new home within the year because their family is moving. The mini horse is so safe that she could be a therapy pet. The pony loves it when kids play with him. He seems more like a dog than a pony.

Bath: There are several Thoroughbred horses available for adoption at the Finger Lakes SPCA. Some of the horses came from a cruelty case involving 80 Thoroughbreds who were rescued from severe starvation and neglect. The horses have received lots of handling and care since the rescue and are ready for permanent homes. They range in age, color and temperament. If you can provide one, or more, of these horses with the loving home they deserve, please contact Vicki at the Finger Lakes SPCA.

Galway: (Aug. 26, 2015), For Adoption: 2 Miniature Spotted Donkeys to spoiled loving home. I am retiring soon and moving and cannot keep my two beloved donkeys! I’ve had them since they were babies. Joker and Stew are 10 y.o. both geldings, both registered and are half brothers. They must NEVER be separated – they are bonded and best friends! The pair love to play tag and play with their toys. They romp around several times a day and its very entertaining. Stew brays if you are late with his dinner. They love it when you scratch inside their ears. They hang their heads low and shut their eyes. They will put their heads right in your lap and let you love them up. They do not bite or kick. They are very gentle, ONCE THEY GET TO KNOW YOU. You have to earn their trust as they are use to my home and me being the only person around them. You can clean their feet without a problem, but they need to be sedated (the dormesadan gel put under their lip) when it’s time for a foot trim/farrier. They only need their feet trimmed twice a year. Their hooves don’t seem to grow long on quality hay and sandy soil. They are not use to lots of noise or people being around them, you would need a kind hand and you’d have to work around them in a slow, safe manner so you earn their trust. They enjoy being brushed. I usually keep halters on them. I usually do not tie them although once they feel safe at your home they will stand once tied. They have always been healthy, although Joker, on occassion meaning once or twice a year, or every other year (it’s hit and miss) will have his back knee tighten/lock up and he then has to “walk thru it” for a few minutes in order for it to be normal again. He had the problem when he was a baby and the vet said he should grow out of it. He’s only had this happen a few times over his lifetime but I wanted to bring up the fact. They are to be respected beloved pets. They are not to be used for birthday parties, or trained to pull a cart. I use to take them for walks on my property but I don’t have the time these days. They would probably be cautious and somewhat spooky for you at first. They have to know you and feel comfortable in their new home first. They love apples, carrots and their favorite is peanut butter fed off a spoon! If they move into your home and you cannot keep them for whatever the reason, I would request you give me two months notice and I will then find them their next forever home. They are not to be sold by you, or given away to anyone else. Contact me and I will find them their next home and pay to ship them there. I want to be able to sleep at night always knowing they are safe! You would have to sign a notarized statement agreeing to the above term.

Please note: The vegan lifestyle, which Farm Sanctuary promotes, generally precludes the use of animals. Domesticated companion animals are an obvious exception, because well treated companions define an issue of relationship rather than one of exploitation. Horses are exploited at the slaughterhouse by some, while cherished by others. We condemn the capture of wild horses, and we are against the indiscriminate use of horses as commodities, situations in which they’re too often abused, as with horse racing, horse rentals and horse-drawn carriage rentals. We fully recognize that horses born into domesticity can have the best of lives in the care of conscientious caregivers.
