Our mission is to rescue as many at-risk horses as we can, that need a soft landing from abuse, starvation, neglect and abandonment in hopes to prevent these horses from entering the kill pen pipeline, and while here at the rescue we are dedicated to give each horse love and compassion along with the nutrition, training, farrier and veterinary care they need to become healthy and to learn to trust again so they can be adopted to forever loving homes and become lifetime companions.

Process to adopting a horse from us:

#3. At which time you will be required to send a $100 donation for the adoption appointment (which will go towards the adoption fee). And will be required prior to the adoption appointment, and can be paid via Zelle @ email@example.com, Venmo @wildsagehorserescue, PayPal (+2.5% for PayPal fees) @wildsagehorserescue.
#4. Then you will come and meet and possibly ride the horse you inquired about, a helmet is required if you are under 18 yrs old, after you have met the horse you inquired about and you would like to ride, we then have you ride in the round pen with an instructor and if you still are interested in adopting the horse then you and another rider will go out on trail, our main focus is to have the right match to our horses as we want our horses to have a forever loving home.
#5. If you and the horse are a match, and we both agree that you are, we ask that you complete the Adoption Contract and you pay the adoption fee, via cash, check, Zelle @ firstname.lastname@example.org, Venmo or PayPal (+2.5% for PayPal fees) @wildsagehorserescue. the adoption fee will be held until the adoption is finalized.
#6. We then will check where the horse will live and once we approve, you may take the horse home
We have a 30 day return policy for our adopted horses, so at any time during the 30 day trial you may return the horse back to us and you will be refunded your adoption fee as long as the horse is returned in good condition, less the $100 donation, our goal is to have a great match and have our horses going to forever loving homes.

How can you help?
You can help by donating, volunteering, sponsoring or fostering.
Wild Sage Horse Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The rescue is solely run by volunteers and donations, we have no paid employees and all our donations are from amazing people that understand our mission and want to help, also all the donations are 100% deductible.
Donations is how we care for and rehabilitate our rescues so donations are always needed, we appreciate any donation we get no matter how big or small, your donation matters!! A donation of $5.00 will buy a bag of treats, a donation of $25 will buy a bale of hay, a donation of $200 will provide hay for a horse for a month or help towards the training, so every little bit helps. If you would like to send a donation you can do so via PayPal, Venmo, or Cashapp @ Wild Sage Horse Rescue or you can send it through Zelle at email@example.com. Our QR codes and PayPal donation button are below.
We have a great team of volunteers and it is always a pleasure to have new volunteers join our team, we are recruiting new volunteers often. Our volunteer program is quite unique as you don't have to have any experience with horses because we teach you how to handle them, you learn how to muck stalls, how to feed, learn about horse nutrition, halter a horse properly, groom, lead, bathe, and how to bridle and saddle a horse and many other things. Our volunteer program is geared to teach as many people about how to care for a horse so that with the education you get here you can help others in hopes that there will be less horses being abused or starved because of the lack of knowledge. So send us a email or a message to join us on one of our volunteer orientations or you can visit us and get a free tour and come meet the rescues, they love visitors and they especially love carrots.
We need monthly sponsors for our horses to help pay for their hay, farrier, vet bills, and training. You can sponsor a horse's monthly feed, a feed sponsorship is $200, or sponsor a horses farrier bill, a farrier sponsorship $25 a month, or possibly sponsor the training bill, a training sponsorship can be anywhere between $200 to $600 a month, but we are happy to receive any amount you can possibly give as any amount helps. With any horse you sponsor we will contact you as soon as they get adopted. We also encourage people to have a friend or family member join you on a sponsorship. With any horse you sponsor we will send you a framed picture of the horse(s) you sponsor, also you have the privilege to come visit them, groom them, and to give treats.
If you are interested in fostering one of our rescues please contact us for information on horses that are available for fostering.
AS WE ALL KNOW, IT TAKES A VILLAGE
Give a horse what they need and they will give you their heart in return.
