Julie is an approximately 4 year old Thoroughbred/Quarter Horse cross. She is a bit shy at first but is quickly coming around to positive attention and food bribes! Potential adopters who have other horses will need to keep in mind that Julie is a somewhat dominant mare. However, we currently have her housed with another dominant mare and they have worked out an agreement without too much argument. She gets along best with geldings but would love to have a forever home no matter who her pasture mates are. Julie is green broke - we have had her under saddle a few times here at the shelter and she has done very well. We have been working her in the round pen and she has "joined up" several times. She is a smart mare who actively tries to figure out what her rider wants of her. We feel that she will be an AMAZING saddle horse with some training! Because she is only green broke, Julie would do best with an experienced rider or someone familiar with training horses.
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.
