Daisy is an approximately 8 year old Saddlebred/Paint horse mix. She is ridable but has some joint issues in her left rear hock. Due to this she is not sound for heavy riding, however she does well on light riding and trail riding. Daisy also does not like having her rear hooves handled and will kick. Because of this, Daisy would do best in a home without young children. She is a very dominant mare so adopters with other horses will need to be aware of this when considering adopting her. She would greatly benefit from some round pen work.
The fee to adopt a horse is $250. This fee includes microchipping, Coggins test, and vaccination. A sample adoption application can be viewed here. If you are interested in adopting a horse listed on Petfinder, please call our shelter to make sure he or she is still available for adoption.
Company / Facility:
Sabine Humane Society -
Documents to incorporate The Sabine Humane Society as a 501 (C) 3 corporation were filed on September 9, 1997, by Shannon Clements; Kathy Merten; Martha Bass and Tracy Conerly.
The Sabine Humane Society was formed to help the abused, deserted, and thrown away animals in Sabine Parish, Louisiana. The SocietyÃŠÂ¼s main goal was to build and operate a shelter for that purpose. Finally in October of 2010, that goal came to fruition when our Facility opened.
The funds for perpetual operation of the facility have always been a major concern. In 2008, the Society continued to lobby the Sabine Parish Police Jury for assistance. The Jury finally agreed to place a 10-year parish wide 1.5 millage property tax referendum on the November 4, 2008 general election ballot. A few volunteers worked hard promoting the tax to voters in the parish. Their efforts paid off when, by a margin of 286 votes, the citizens of the Parish supported the tax.
The proceeds of this tax are collected annually, with the first collection starting in November/December of 2009. It is estimated this tax will yield approximately $130,000 to $140,000 annually. Along with the joint efforts by the town of Many, plus the assistance from the Sabine Parish SheriffÃŠÂ¼s Office, these funds help pay for the operation of the facility.
