Acton: (Feb. 3, 2016), Tobe and Mahogany horses are in need of a new home as their current family is experiencing hardship. Tobe is the horse on the left. He’s currently in his 20s, and his current guardians have had him over ten years. He is a thoroughbred rescue, an abused and worn out jumper their veterinarian called “a walking trainwreck” when they got him. He’s no longer a trainwreck but still cannot be ridden. Tobe has poor balance at rest; in other words, he falls. He is also a bit hyper and would do well in the company of other horses. The female horse in the photo on the right is Mahogany. She is 20 years old and her current guardian has had her since she was six years old. Mahogany used to be used in dressage and jumping but hasn’t been ridden in several years, though she would probably enjoy walking on a trail.

Edwards AFB: (Jan. 19, 2016), Faith is an approximately twenty year old mare who was recently rescued from a livestock auction. Her new guardian loves Faith dearly but believes she would benefit in a more experienced horse home. Faith is lame due to low ringbone. Some days are better than others and Faith still has the spunk to trot around and even sometimes run when she is in the turnout. Faith is a sweet girl who loves to receive love, and she will do about anything for a treat! Since Faith has been used and abused in her life, she would benefit from a home with horse experience.

Harwood: (March 16, 2017),  Three senior Standardbred horses (Holly, a 30 year old mare, Captain, a 24 year old gelding, and Tia, a 25 year old mare) are in need of a new home.  Their original guardian passed away seven years ago.  Since then, their care has been provided by the estate of their deceased guardian.  The funds have run out and their current guardian cannot afford their continued care.  Holly, Captain, and Tia have never been separated from one another, but their current guardian understands that it may be difficult to have them placed in one home.

Blairstown: (Jan. 24, 2017), Two mares are in need of a good home after their owner passed away. Tequila is 17 years old, and has an unknown neurological issue that will need to be addressed by a veterinarian. Shyanne is 30 + years old, and is as sweet as can be. A friend has been caring for them, but they need to find a soft spot to land as soon as possible. Transport available within a reasonable distance.

Bath: (Ongoing), 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.

Cazenovia: (Feb. 22, 2017), “Life of the City” is a very sweet eight year old Bay Thoroughbred gelding who is looking for a forever home where he can be loved.  He is an overall healthy, happy and very sweet horse. He is retired due to Vitamin E dependent myopathy. During his time with us he has been with mares, geldings, and colts, and he gets along with everyone.  He does not require shoes and is current on all vaccines and coggins. He is that special kind of horse who can be trusted with kids and novice horse people. He will stand and be groomed for hours and allows people to easily pick up his feet.

Poyntelle: (June 20, 2016), Mystic – (JC Name: Girl George, chestnut mare born 2008, 16.0 hh) has survived starvation and neglect and is now looking for a forever home as a companion or cuddle buddy. This charming mare was seized from a “rescue” that wasn’t feeding their horses. We have absolutely fallen in love with her. She’s miraculously pulled through and blossomed into an intuitive, fun bright and friendly lady. We hoped her soundness issues could be overcome for her re-homing, however she cannot be ridden. She has kissing spine and subsequent hind-end issues but is sound and happy to live in a pasture.

Riverhead: (March 13, 2017), Two beautiful horses and five potbellied pigs must be rehomed. The thoroughbred gelding, “Glacier,” is 17 years old, and the mare, named Martha, is 12. Both are accustomed to daily handling. The pig family consists of a now-neutered male, female, and their three offspring. The pigs all live happily together and it would be ideal to keep them together if possible.
