We believe horses are sentient beings desirous of and needing good care and proper tending. Our mission is to find people and homes that meet these needs for our Greener Pastures' horses. Care in these homes means regular feeding with appropriate, nutritious equine foods, customary grooming and shoeing, regular physical exercise and suitable veterinarian attention. It means frequent human contact. It means adequate accommodations, regularly cleaned and well protected from the weather with at least a minimum space for healthy exercise. Usually it means having other equine, feline, canine or goat, donkey, sheep or even chicken citizens on site for barnyard companionship. Always it means love from caretakers and minders. We find our Greener Pastures Rescue adoption candidates through direct contact with owners as well as a through a wide variety of referrals. We place our adoptive horses into new homes only after thorough screening and evaluation for a proper fit between animal and new "parents." We consult and interact with a wide range of animal welfare organizations in our continual search for needy animals and supportive adoptive homes for those horses.
