Whisky is an approximately 2 year old Saddlebred. She saddles easily and rides well. Whisky came from a very abusive, neglectful home where she was being ridden in very poor body condition and beaten to make her run. It is difficult to get her to ride at a walk - she sticks to a trot when under saddle. Whisky is not gaited. She would greatly benefit from some despooking and/or round pen work. Whisky is a friendly mare who catches easily... when treats are involved! She is a bit dominant to others horses but not standoffish towards people. She would make a good children's horse with a little bit of finishing or a good horse for an adult rider with a little bit of experience.
The fee to adopt a horse is $250. This fee includes microchipping, Coggins test, deworming and vaccination. A sample adoption application can be viewed here. If you are interested in adopting a horse listed on EquineNow, please call our shelter to make sure he or she is still available for adoption.
We REQUIRE a vet reference and/or a site inspection on all horse adoptions.
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.
