Our Adoption Process

Because we consider each horse that comes through our door as a member of our family, Trinity Rescue requires an extensive adoption process to ensure that any horse that we place will be going to a loving and caring home. We have spent countless hours forming a special bond with each one of them through their rehabilitation and will be very selective with our applicants.

  • Each applicant must complete the Adoption Application and email the completed form to Info@trinityrescueinc.org.
  • You must schedule a time to meet with a Trinity Rescue representative for an interview. You will be asked to share your past experience with horses and to discuss your needs and desires around adopting a rescue. You will then be able to meet the rescues and spend some 1-on-1 time to determine if an emotional connection is made.
  • A Trinity Rescue representative will then pay a visit to your boarding facility of choice.
  • Once your boarding facility (or own farm) has been approved, transportation may be arranged for your horse(s) to be moved to their new home.

Adira

Age: Approximately 10 years old
Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse
Hands: 15
Status: Available for Adoption

Adira was rescued from a kill buyer in 2012 where she was severely abused. Over the past 5 years that we’ve had her, she has made a lot of progress, but is still VERY cautious around humans. It will take a special connection with a potential family for Adira to continue her progress. At this time, we feel that Adira will be best suited as a companion.

Destiny

Age: Approximately 4 years old
Breed: Hanoverian cross
Hands: 15
Status: Available for Adoption

Destiny and a companion filly were discovered abandoned in a swampy area up near Chickamauga, Georgia.  They were deemed to be yearlings at most by the vet that attended them.  She was covered in fungus and open sores all over her body which were oozing and bleeding.  She emaciated, and had zero handling prior to her rescue.  When she was transported to Trinity it was quickly identified that she was not even halter trained, but she was so appreciative of any food, water or care we gave her, she was willing and compliant with whatever we asked of her.  It took weeks before he skin was healed, but she quickly began regaining her weight and her spirit.  She has proven herself to be an amazing horse over the past 16 months, having participated in our on site training program, and surpassing our wildest expectations.  She learns quickly, is always up for a new experience and is a virtual ROCKSTAR with despooking.

Picasso

Age: 5 years old
Breed: Paint/Appaloosa
Hands: 14.2
Status: Available for Adoption

Picasso arrived at the rescue along with his mom, Monet, when he was just 4 months old. He was skinny, lame and had a large hematoma on his belly. His owner planned to put a bullet in his head because of the injury, but allowed him to come to us instead. His mom was already pregnant again when they arrived, and was also starved. Picasso weaned from his mom, and began getting the nutrition he needed to gain and grow. His sweet, quiet spirit and stunning beauty made him a fan favorite right away. Over the past three years, Picasso has grown into a handsome, strong gelding. That sweet spirit remained and he has been a great role model to his baby brother, Rembrandt, as well as an excellent herd leader to many young rescues who have come into our program.

Rembrandt

Age: 4 years old
Breed: Paint/Appaloosa
Hands: 13.2
Status: Available for Adoption

Rembrandt was born at Trinity Rescue on April 26, 2014. His mom, Monet, arrived at the rescue the previous September, starved, nursing her colt, Picasso, and already several months pregnant with Rembrandt. The Trinity team was very fortunate to be able to witness his birth, his taking his first breath, and every first he has had along the way. At 4 years old, he has never known hunger, pain or neglect. Rembrandt was a precocious colt from the beginning, with a big personality to match his large frame. Although a year younger than his big brother, Picasso, he is the same height and weight. Rembrandt is the yin to his brother’s yang. Where his brother is emotional, Rembrandt is laid back. Where Picasso is quiet and affectionate, Rembrandt is rambunctious and athletic. Even though the brothers are polar opposites, they have an in-credibly tight bond.

Sky

Age: Approximately 15 years old
Breed: Paint (Mare)
Hands: 13.2
Status: Available for Adoption

Sky was rescued from a slaughter auction in September 2013 and her new owners reached out to Trinity Rescue in December 2013, as they were no longer able to care for her. She will need an intermediate/advanced rider and would be an ideal trail companion for a smaller sized adult.

Xena

Age: 4 years old
Breed: Minature Horse
Height: 24″
Status: Sanctuary

We received a call from one of our followers that there was a newborn mini who needed our help. She was born with deformity in all four legs, but had managed to learn to stand and was nursing fine. Aside from her legs, she was a healthy mini. She was going to need specialized care, so we picked her up and brought her to the rescue at 2 days old. Over the next six months, she made numerous trips to UGA School of Veterinary Medicine for surgery and follow up appointments. She was able to walk, run and play….just not exactly like all the other minis. Xena has more heart, determination and sass than you can imagine. She doesn’t know she is special needs….she just knows she is FABULOUS!
She requires trims every 4 weeks and annual x-rays to monitor her bones and joints due to her birth defect. Due to her special medical condition and requirement for ongoing care, Xena will remain at Trinity Rescue for life as a Sanctuary horse.
