Please join in with one of our fundraising initiatives and help us raise awareness while we raise funds to support rescue efforts. Or hold fundraisers of your own! We are always so inspired by kids, in particular, who have held basket draws, sold lemonade and artwork or who ask for donations to Sadie’s Place in lieu of birthday gifts.
The Canadian Horse Defense Coalition estimates more than 100,000 horses are sent to slaughter in Canada each year. Many of these horses were young, vibrant, sound and sane animals. Their only crime was outliving their usefulness to their owner. At Sadie’s Place, we offer owners an alternative. Through our assessment and re-training process we can provide these horses and ponies a second chance at a new life.
Note potential adopters must fill out our pre-adoption form before booking an appointment to meet the horses. This form tells us about you, your horse experience and what kind of horse you are interested in. We use this information to match you with the horse or pony that best suits your experience and situation, and to match horses and ponies to their best chances of a forever and loving home.
