If you are interested in adopting a horse, please contact us.

Thank you!


Saffyre Sanctuary specializes in matching the right horse with the right person.  We look for adopters who wish to provide a permanent, lifetime home for a horse and, are accepting of that horse's limitations. Our wish is to ensure that a previously rescued horse never ends up in an unsavory situation again. So many horses need to be rescued, that if we can break the cycle of abandonment, neglect, and abuse, by providing these horses with new homes, and educating people about proper horse care, then together we can give these horses a second chance at a wonderful life. 


We prefer that the new owners keep the adopted horse for the remainder of its life but, if circumstances make that impossible, then we will always assist the adopter in finding a safe and loving home for the horse.

(Note: adoption fees will only be returned within the first 10 days).  


Our horses are available for adoption to qualified homes only. Unless we already know you, we will ask for references from your farrier, veterinarian, or other qualified persons. We will do a site inspection to see where you will keep the horse. Wonderful people, who are willing to open their heart to a rescue horse, understand that rescue horses are special animals, and that some may have special needs.


Adoption approval will be based on your ability to provide the best home for the horse.  


Adoption fees vary per horse and help us continue our operations to rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for other horses.


Adoption guidelines we provide are set by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) for general equine management and are required of all persons adopting an equine from Saffyre Sanctuary.  Click here to view these guidelines AWI/HSUS Guidelines.pdf. While not exhaustive, they offer basic parameters for responsible equine ownership.  In addition, any individual keeping equines must comply with all relevant state and local laws.


It is mandatory that you promise to love, spoil, care for, protect, cherish, and enjoy your adopted horse!

I am very lucky to have such a responsible owner. My mom has been diagnosed with an incurable very rare blood cancer, and she is no longer able to give me the attention I have been accustomed to. Knowing that her time on earth is limited, she wants to make sure I am cared for and loved after she is gone.

I am a thinker, so when you ask me to do something new, I stop and freeze so I can figure out what you want. Please do not rush me. Patience and love will get you everywhere, and I am a total pocket pony on the ground. I love to be pampered and fussed over, and I have nice ground manners. It may take me a bit to warm up to you but once I do, I will never leave your side.

I get along great with other horses. I am not for a beginner, or a child, nor am I a husband horse. Saffyre Sanctuary has a strict no- breeding policy, so please do not inquire if you are looking for a broodmare.

22 year old Appaloosa Gelding
Registered - AApA #?
Located in Whittier, CA

I am a retired police horse. I have been in the Rose Parade and have been very proud of my job. I have had supervised 5 year old children on me and, and have done everything that was asked of me. I get along with all other horses, and have no bad habits.

Sometime last year, I sustained an eye injury. No one knows what happened but it is painful for me, and my dad does not have the money to have it removed. I would not mind being a one-eyed horse. I just need someone who is patient and knows I have to look at my surroundings before asking me to do something. I am a little scarred not being able to see from both sides, but once I know what you want, then my confident self will shine.  Because I may spook until I become comfortable with my surroundings, and what you are asking of me, I am not suitable as a children’s horse, but great for a knowledgeable intermediate adult.

Other than my eye that should be removed, I am completely healthy and sound. I do have a pigeon toe, but that has never bothered me. I will need an experienced farrier to make sure I stay comfortable at my effortless trot. If you are looking for your next superstar, here I am!
